Well Travelled Bride Team Profile About

Well Travelled Bride

We are a group of international planners who started off with a penchant for great style and world-class luxury. Blending our passions for travel and glamour, we seek to draw inspiration from the world's leading tourism, wedding and luxury companies to create a haven where style and luxury meet. We trot the globe, visiting the world’s most exotic locals and collaborating with top notch vendors. For each destination we visit, our team creates comprehensive guides and styled shoots for brides with big dreams and high standards. As detail-oriented creatives, we cover all the bases and comb through every city we visit to discover the hidden local gems and industry favourites, so that all our brides have to do is scroll and dream. So kick off your heels and sip on your favourite cocktail, because we’ve already checked our bags and stamped our passports to answer all your questions. Paving the way for our brides means we’ll do anything to test-drive the best locales for a destination wedding or honeymoon - whether that means waking up at 3 AM to catch the sunrise or hanging out over mountaintops in helicopters. What's life if not a glamorous adventure?

Join our team of creatives as we trot the globe, previewing venues and popping champagne.



We would love to hear from you with any feedback or enquiries about our adventures & company.
