Having your wedding in a hotel or big house on the island of Ireland is all well and fabulous, but with marriage equality came the ability to have your wedding abroad and for your union to be legally recongised at home. With that in mind, Ciara McGrattan picks her top four places on the planet to tie the knot in.

Let’s face it, most couples getting married want their wedding to be spectacular and super-unique, but the choices in Ireland for making that happen are a tad limited. But there are other options out there, like travelling abroad to do the deed.

About GCN

In our annual Wedding Issue of GCN this month we’ve got lots of wonderous wedding content and lots of other great stuff too! Thinking of getting married abroad? We take a look at some interesting international options. Comedian Margaret Cho tells us about her life as a fearless free-spirit and LGBT advocate ahead of her first- ever Irish gig. Fellow funny gal Kathy Griffin talks Weinstein, disenfranchisement and the fall-out from that picture. Elsewhere, we speak to some LGBTs who opted for unconventional wedding themes (including bikers, Rocky Horror and a Bjork-inspired duo). We present a photographic round-up of all the GALAS winners, and chat to Fair City's latest gay resident, Brazilian actor Rodrigo Ternevoy. Also, we've got all the details about what's hot and what's not in the world.
