Highlights of the new collection include: 

Mauritius:  Preskil Island Resort one of Kuoni’s best-selling resorts in Mauritius, is re-opening in March after a multi-million pound refurbishment. The new-look resort has been totally transformed and will have a cool and contemporary ‘island’ retreat feel whilst retaining its private-peninsula setting in one of the best spots in Mauritius. 

First hotel based wedding in Italy at Grand Convento Di Amalfi.  Once a convent to Capuchin monks this iconic hotel has its own chapel and 13th century cloister perfect for an intimate wedding. 

New wedding locations in Portugal, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, Barbados and Mexico 

Focus on east coast of Sri Lanka which is the ideal location for summer weddings 

Sam Brooker, Kuoni weddings expert, said: “Everyone has their own style, so we wanted to reflect the types of occasion that couples are looking for. From small and intimate to bigger venues and unique locations to beaches, we’ve got much more choice than ever before. 

With more than 31 years’ experience planning overseas wedding, we’re continuing to reflect the trends and stay one step ahead. The big shift in overseas weddings now is that we’re able to offer couples an event management service, so they can add more of their own ideas to the event rather than booking a standard wedding package offered by a specific hotel.  

We’ve also reviewed the way we present every venue in our brochure, dedicating extra space to all of our destinations and locations."
