A growing number of people are choosing to get married abroad, one industry expert has said.

Thea Darricotte, editor of Conde Naste Brides magazine, said that this is because it often provides a better option weather-wise, as well as saving money amid the credit crunch.

“With the climate change that is going on at the moment more people are thinking of sunnier climates where they are going to have more for their money and also pretty much good weather guaranteed,” she commented.
