Hi Bee’s –
Me and my fiance just came back from a winter wedding this weekend and although lovely and magical, it cost them a LOT. We also had the ‘so when are you getting married? When, where, how, who etc etc and we thought, we should elope, seriously, elope! So we are now in serious need of advice from any bee’s who have eloped in the Canary Islands/Caribbean etc, looking at Mauritius too, any stories of advice anyone may have??

@FutureMrsMarlow: I was doing some Googling for you, but I think maybe the destinations wedding board would be more helpful? There may be people who have been there for vacation or full weddings.
I did a google search for “Canary Islands wedding” and then to the images section.
Here is one website whose images popped up a lot.

I eloped in Antigua (we’re based in Ireland). In our case, we needed it legal, and we needed it fast! Antigua was perfect as they can do same day weddings (licence and ceremony same-day with no residency requirements or issues with our respective nationalities). They also have the benefit of the marriage officer showing up wherever you want them to (they actually no longer do ceremonies in the courthouse. We had ours outside at our hotel.) Two witnesses, a couple hundred Euros (the expidited licence is more expensive) and a tale to tell!

Thanks bee’s! We think we have a location now and a decent package, just sorting out exact details of how long we’ll go for etc, not sure all the people we want to come can come but hey! That’s one of the things you compromise on when you decide to elope! x
