The research is the result of extensive market analysis by pogoplum (http://www.pogoplum.com), a gay weddings business established to provide services to lesbians and gay men entering the growing market for gay weddings and honeymoons.
According to the co-founder of pogoplum, Christina Harrison-Flynn, lesbians are embracing the planning stages of their weddings and honeymoons creatively in ways that often make them special and quite unique.
“Many of our lesbian clients have grown up not always feeling a part of the mainstream, so when it comes to celebrating their weddings and honeymoons they ask us to be fairly imaginative for them,” said Harrison-Flynn. “Of course every couple wants their special day to be memorable but many lesbians in the UK are showing us that they really like to splash out with their ceremonies and honeymoons to make a totally individual statement. This new research reveals the spirit of adventure many lesbians have shown when they marry.”
When it comes time for the honeymoon, several places are vying for top spot on the lesbian honeymoon hitlist.
One common theme in the top lesbian honeymoon destinations is the sun.
Los Almendros in Gran Canaria tops the list, followed closely by Provence in southern France.
Harrison-Flynn said that while many women are opting for exotic weddings and honeymoons, there are also women who prefer to go down the road of tradition: “Of course many women also like more traditional marriage ceremonies and honeymoons, and that is great too. We are just delighted at pogoplum to see so many women now taking advantage of the UK’s new laws that allow them to celebrate their relationships together with family and friends.”
The February 2007 issue of UK Diva magazine, Europe’s leading lesbian publication carries a feature article about this new pogoplum research.
The UK is home to an estimated 1.5 million lesbians.
