With celebrities opting for European destinations for their luxury weddings, couples around the world are following suit. We don’t blame them for taking advantage of the sunny, mild climates and short flight times. So if you’ve decided on a European destination wedding but haven’t chosen your location yet, take a look at some of our favourite destinations to get you inspired.
Greece is historically one of the most popular wedding destinations and with no signs of slowing down. This destination wedding location offers a stunning coastline and variety of luxury hotels perfect for the wedding of your dreams. Couples and their guests can find exquisite suites complete with views beyond your imagination. Our personal favourite has to be the island of Santorini.
9 out of 10 couples state that weather is a key factor in their decision when planning their overseas wedding. It’s no wonder then that Cyprus is the perfect destination for sun worshippers, as it enjoys one of the warmest climates in the Mediterranean. Whether you’re looking for a beach-side venue, a church wedding or a glamorous hotel, you’ll be sure to find what you’re looking for here.
Italy offers such a mixture of landscapes, it’s hard to incorporate it into just one destination wedding location. Perhaps the romantic canals of Venice are the perfect choice for you. Or maybe the breathtaking views of the Amalfi Coast as you say your vows is everything you imagined. Finding yourself a wedding planner with knowledge of the area is the perfect place to start. They’ll be able to present to you the hidden Italian gems and give you the fairytale wedding you’ve always dreamed of.
Spain has a number of beautiful locations perfect for your destination wedding. Whether you choose Southern, Central or Northern Spain, you’ll be met with a huge range of luxurious venue options. Plus, each will have the flexibility to cater to your wishes. Like many European destination wedding locations, there are some legal steps involved in getting married in Spain, so make sure you’ve done your research before settling on your destination.
For romance and elegance beyond compare, France is ideal for your fairytale wedding. Famed for being one of the most romantic countries in the world, its close proximity makes it popular with UK couples. Travel time is lessened, and the option of a romantic Parisian wedding with views of the Eiffel Tower is hard to resist.
The location of your wedding determines a lot. It’s important that it reflects your personal style and passions so you can make your wedding personal and unique.
