Usually, yes!

In most destinations you can opt to have either a civil or religious ceremony at any approved spot – be it church, gardens, hotels or the beach.

Also, if you're wedded (no pun intended) to exchanging your vows with the sand between your toes, then marrying abroad is currently your only option.

In England and Wales it isn’t possible to legally wed on our beautiful beaches (legal marriage ceremonies have to take place at a licensed civil venue, registry office, or religious building).

You can marry on the beach in Scotland – although we wouldn’t like to guarantee the weather would be as good as Mauritius!
