There are a variety of reasons why lovebirds choose to hold their ceremony in another city or country. It could be because they come from different places and have decided to choose a common ground for family and friends to go to.
It could also be that they want to reminisce and go back to a place of significance in their relationship. It can also simply be because they want to start their marital journey in a totally new or different place where they can make new memories together.
