However, when it comes to planning a wedding abroad, Zankyou always advises that you seek the advice of a wedding planner situated in your desired location. A wedding planner will know the area, the legal requirements and the best vendors around, allowing you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the experience.

So here’s an unranked list of the top 4 wedding planners that this glorious country has to offer:
