When it comes to getting those perfect wedding photos, few locations make for a more perfect backdrop than a long, sandy beach – and the sound of the sea can be a calming influence after a happy but hectic day.

Want an unusual location for your wedding? It doesn’t get much better than the middle of the ocean.

With stunning sunsets and magnificent sea views, a luxury cruise ship is a magical place to exchange vows, offering a truly memorable way to tie the knot. And, if you happen to be cruising to somewhere special, then the honeymoon can begin the moment the reception ends.
