Same sex destination marriage?

Hi there, I'm hoping anyone can offer me some advice. My fiancée and I are thinking of a destination wedding in 2017. we would prefer it to be within 5 hours flying distance of the UK (due to my min being unable to fly long distance). Does anyone know which countries we could legally get married as a lesbian couple? I'm struggling to find information online about this so hoping with the amount of people on here someone could offer me some help :)


Thanks so much



  • I'm getting married in santorini  (greece) and pretty sure I saw the venue offers same sex marriages.

Might be worth googling specific countries and then looking at their marriage guidelines. Good luck! X

    Hope it helps
