The bride and groom opted to use their wedding budget of £10,000 to travel round the world after having a court marriage
Engaged couple Amelia and Brett Irwin, were disappointed when they realized the time they had chosen to wed was the same month the groom-to-be’s brother would be getting married.
The bride and groom opted to use their wedding budget of £10,000 to travel round the world after having a court marriage.
“Brett is South African so we had planned a huge wedding on safari in Africa but his brother and his girlfriend suddenly decided to marry in the same year. We decided to get married at a registry office before embarking on a month-long honeymoon. Then I suggested why not get married in each country on the way round so we could invite whoever would like to come, ” the bride said.
The couple packed their bags and took a trip round the world to different places including Paris, Moscow, Beijing, Russia and Nepal.
“It seemed perfect and was the answer to all our problems. We didn’t have to pay for others to eat, drink, and party and were able to spend the wedding money on ourselves while travelling the world,” Amelia said adding that traveling round the world was cheaper than having a wedding.
“I’d always wanted to go to Moscow and neither of us had been to Paris so we started there and planned to go to Moscow”
“’As we were in China we wanted to see the Terracotta Army and we both wanted to go to India.”
“We flew over Nepal and thought we might as well stop there too before flying from there to Delhi.”
“China was pretty difficult as they don’t allow Google or Facebook due to the communist regime
“At Monate game lodge in South Africa, the wedding coordinator did everything for me, from finding a florist, a make-up artist, a photographer and everything in between”
“’We were both blown away by Russia and the Russian people – it was easily the best country we visited,” the couple said of their travel.
The couple ended their exciting trip in South Africa where Brett’s brother was getting married,
“We could only get one month off work per year so we either had to miss their wedding and come to Africa for one month or cancel our wedding and attend theirs,” the newlyweds said.
