Lineker leads the way to overseas weddings


Couples planning to get married overseas could do worse than follow the lead of Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker who tied the knot this month for the second time on Italy's Amalfi coast, but here are some other suggestions for a winter wedding.

You can't beat marrying barefoot on the beach and the Caribbean is one of the few areas where this is possible in the winter. For a really top-notch wedding, consider Sandals Resorts, which have teamed up with wedding planner extraordinaire Preston Bailey to organise some of the most romantic resort weddings.

For a truly white wedding, say 'I do' in an ice chapel in Finnish Lapland ? and afterwards snuggle under the stars in a glass 'igloo'. While other couples might celebrate their wedding day with fireworks, you'll be treated to a display of the Northern Lights. For more information, contact Igloo Village Kakslauttanen

A wedding at sea is the perfect choice for a couple who want stress-free nuptials as everything is taken care of from the moment you step onboard. To be married at sea by the ship's captain, contact Princess Cruises. Other cruise lines hold weddings when the ship is docked.

Las Vegas is the place to go for a 'quickie wedding'. There's even a drive-thru wedding chapel. Copules who aren't in a hurry can choose for the bride to be walked down the aisle by an Elvis-lookalike, or linger over a candlelit wedding in the Little Chapel of Flowers. Try Virgin for wedding packages.

Don't forget you'll need to take out travel insurance with wedding cover to protect special items such as wedding rings, outfits, videos, photographs and wedding gifts.
