Weddings in Gozo are just as popular as those in the main land Malta. Couples do request venues in both islands and although only a 20 minute boat ride away this island is nothing like big sister Malta. Gozo is laid back, quaint, charming and has lots of potential when it comes to weddings.
Last weekend i had the opportunity to participate in one of the leading exhibitions in Ireland which took place in Belfast. A show run by professionals who clearly know what they are doing and have improved throughout the course of time.
Sad the Christmas festive season is over?….. Lets start looking forward to the next celebration shall we? Nothing less than Valentine’s day
You might want to plan ahead and do that something romantic.
I decided to dedicate the first one to planning, but not the planning that you are already thinking of, lets take a few steps back. Many couples decide on wedding abroad with the hope to visit places before deciding on the final wedding destination.
As the year comes to a close in a few days, it is time to reflect on what 2018 has brought to us, what we could have done better and what we have learnt. There is always room for improvement in anything we do in life, as life itself is a learning curve.
And it’s that time of year….decorating mince pies, eating lots of chocolate, drinking nice mulled wine…and yes marriage proposals. Lots of them happen during the holiday season. It’s that magical vibe around where everyone is more chilled and content which makes it all so special.
The wedding Journal show runs in both Dublin and Belfast and this year we are proud to be participating with our own little stand at the Belfast show on both the 2nd and 3rd February in the aisle dedicated solely to destination weddings where we will be putting Malta on the map, offering so much more to couples than just a sea view wedding venue.
Last point which should probably go on the very top is the winter discounts given during the less busy months, and this is for obvious reasons. Suppliers are happy to extend a discount but get work all year round, giving you the opportunity to spend the extra cash on something else you might have wished for…
Laura and Stacy, both American citizens, got in touch with us last March and expressed their intentions to get married in Malta whilst on their harbour stop from their cruise around the Mediterranean.
They were after something simple no glitter and sparkles, but something that reflected them in the most elegant of ways.
They had never been to Malta so a little help with ideas was something he was after. We came up with the idea of having them visit the Upper Barrakka Gardens at sunset, get to the iconic balcony to enjoy the beautiful surrounding of the 3 cities just across the grand harbour.
