There are so many advantages to getting married abroad; gorgeous weather, chic and intimate ceremonies, and all the luxury of a destination resort.
Experts estimate that the average overseas ceremony can be yours for less than a third of the cost of a traditional wedding in the UK, even for a really exclusive event.
British brides can get more than just organisational help from Pierre Carr Exclusive Tropical Weddings, who have announced a partnership with Elegant Resorts.
While Michelle Pierre-Carr and her staff will bring their unrivalled event management experience to your big day, you can now also use the exclusive address book of Elegant Resorts to help you find the ideal venue and arrange travel.
It’s the perfect partnership, pairing logistical detailing of foreign travel with the sprinkle of fairy dust that’s essential for a memorable wedding.
“When clients come to us, we can now offer the complete wedding package,” says Michelle. “From first-class travel to the perfect venue, event management and honeymoon bookings, we will make your wedding extra-special from start to finish.”
Both companies are established high-end brands, with gorgeous portfolios of prior events to give brides an idea of just what they can achieve. Whether you have a clear picture in your head of how you want your wedding to look, or are more open to suggestions, the Pierre Carr team will help make your dream a reality.
While they have many years of experience in organising weddings in the Caribbean and other idyllic destinations, Michelle and the team can also recreate the tropical experience in the UK should you wish to tie the knot in London. It’s a taste of a wedding abroad at home, and is ideal if you would love an overseas event but have family members who cannot travel.
So why pick Pierre Carr Tropical Weddings? Michelle Pierre-Carr is celebrating three years of successful events this January and is much more than a big-day co-ordinator – she’s also there to help with the little things, too.
“I got married four years ago and am now having children,” says Michelle. “I appreciate the milestones of a relationship and feel blessed to be planning weddings – it’s such an honour.”
Pierre Carr Tropical Weddings don’t want to offer a traditional ‘weddings abroad’ package. Their big days are more niche and focused on the individual, seeking out the perfect suppliers to make your big day special.
“You can go into a travel agent and buy a wedding off the shelf, or you can organise something that really reflects you as a couple. We have high quality suppliers for everything from the invitations and outfits to the entertainment and cake for the reception.”

Black and white work so well together, meaning that black and white weddings will probably never go out of fashion. If you are looking to create a sophisticated wedding, a black and white wedding theme is perfect no matter what season you are marrying in. You can put your own twist on the theme, creating a vintage black and white wedding or a modern wedding style. You could even incorporate a bright vivid colour to add another dimension.
