About We Are The Wanderers

We are the Wanderers is a wedding, adventure and travel blog featuring the best of what Europe has to offer.

But this isn’t just a wedding blog. We refuse to believe that being in a relationship or getting married means you need to settle down, like too many travel blogs would have you believe. So you won’t find lifestyle articles on here about how to feng shui your baby’s nursery or the latest manicure trends. What you will find are real adventures from real couples and lifestyle articles to inspire you to get out there and live your best life.

So this is for you.

The couples who keep getting asked when they are planning on settling down.

The couples who go on a camping trip instead of to a luxury spa.

The couples who live out of a suitcase following their dreams travelling the world.

The couples who go against traditions and get married in a way that reflects their love of adventure.

Yana Makliassova – Peach Perfect Weddings

I joined We Are The Wanderers as it’s current Editor in Chief on 1st June 2020. I am also the founder and lead wedding planner at Peach Perfect Weddings – a wedding company that helps adventurous, down-to-earth couples to marry, elope or renew their vows in a non-traditional setting.

In May 2016 I gave up my rented flat in London and set off on a long-term adventure with my partner Waldemar. Over the next four years we digital-nomaded our way through 5 continents and got matching tattoos on our ring finger. The more continents we discovered, the more I came to realise just how incredible Europe is. Although Thailand and it’s elephants will always have a huge piece of my heart, there’s simply no other place on earth quite like Europe.

Being more of an outdoorsy type and less of a girly girl, I know that there are couples out there just like me and Menno that live for adventures, before, during and after their wedding day. As a wedding photographer myself at Wild Connections Photography, I was frustrated at how many wedding blogs were heavily focused on luxury lifestyles and pretty details. It also saddened me to see that destination weddings in Europe were being massively under-represented in the global wedding blog community. And that’s where We Are The Wanderers was born. We Are The Wanderers is about celebrating and inspiring couples to travel and explore Europe, and to have the most unforgettable wedding day ever!
