In 1995, Kuoni launched its first standalone wedding brochure and more than half the weddings featured were in the Caribbean, with the USA and Indian Ocean locations also sought-after destinations. Nowadays, couples are opting for a wider range of romantic venues - from iconic cities and safari lodges, to private islands and castles. 

The Maldives and Mauritius take the top spots in both rankings, demonstrating the popularity of paradisiacal places which offer beauty and tranquility of the finest degree.

Kuoni has also named three of the most unusual places to get married:

  1. Lodia House in Kenya
  2. The outdoor grotto at Rayavadee in Thailand
  3. On the shores of Lake Louise in Canada

As well as the best kept romantic travel secrets:

  1. Seeing the Taj Mahal views from the Mehtab Bagh in India
  2. The island of Gili Meno in Indonesia
  3. El Nido Pangulasian Island, Philippines
  4. Con Dao Island, Vietnam
  5. The island of Bequia, the Grenadines
