Peter Staddon, spokesperson for Biba, also said that the increased affordability and accessibility of many locations are also having a bearing on many people's choice of wedding destination.

Popularity of southern Spain explained

The popularity of parts of southern Spain has been explained from the perspective of a property investment expert.

Apart from the near-constant summer sun, the region can offer visitors a taste of the history and culture of Spain, suggests the Easier Property website.
