Ideas Where to Get Married in Europe
Outdoor Wedding Venues
Enjoy the panoramic views of Chianti hills as you exchange vows in Italy or be at the centre of an enchanting garden in Germany on your big day. Venues in Italy are known for their nature-packed landscapes and vibrant gardens in front of chateaus. German wedding locations, on the other hand, always aim to surprise with breathtaking mountain panorama and cosy conservatory lodges! But when it comes to scenic outdoor views, it’s hard to beat Ireland’s small wedding venues, like a glass conservatory overlooking the ocean at the Blasket Island Centre and a thatched roof cottage in County Cork. Whatever your taste is, we have hundreds of wedding venues on file for those who want to get married outdoors in a very intimate celebration!
Dreamy Castle Weddings
If getting married inside a charming castle is your dream wedding, you have plenty of options in Europe. Historic circular towers in front of calm bodies of water. Germany’s medieval castles situated in the middle of unspoiled nature. French vintage castles with luxury interiors and spacious courtyards are too gorgeous not to mention. There’s also an observatory castle in Ireland with neo-gothic features and a dramatic elopement castle in Northern Ireland which is considered as a Scheduled Historic Monument. These are only some of the most gorgeous ones we’ve hand-picked for you!
Quirky Wedding Spots
If you want to find something extraordinary from the wedding venues in Europe, simply browse through the locations we’ve personally examined for you! The ones you’ll see are a farmhouse in Toulouse and a Game of Thrones shooting location in Ballintoy! A neoclassical church ruin on top of a hill high above gorgeous Italian villages will certainly not disappoint. And who would’ve guessed that you can get married in a natural wonder? One of which is a place in Northern Ireland where hexagonal-shaped, basalt columns were formed after an ancient volcanic eruption millions of years ago. Yes, we can arrange a wedding right at this spot for you!
Mountain Wedding Venues
If you’re one of those brides who are haunted by the idea of getting married in a mountain, thousands of feet above ground, there are fitting wedding locations for you in Europe. There’s that boutique castle in South Tyrol with breath-taking mountain views. It’s “the one” for couples who dream of a gorgeous landscape on the background for their big day. We also suggest a cosy wooden Mountain Lodge in Bavaria with splendid outdoors overlooking German mountains and forests.
Say “I do” on Top of the Mountain
A church ruin on top of a hill and a boutique castle in South Tyrol with breath-taking mountain views are some of the destination wedding locations that Europe offers for couples who dream of a gorgeous landscape on the background for their big day. They’re all waiting for you here!
Gorgeous Lake on the Background
Some of the most unique destination wedding locations in Europe are those amid a serene body of water. We have seen some of them like a tiny chapel on an islet in the middle of a lake, a wedding estate with an unmatched scenery of Lake Como, and a romantic 5-star villa hidden in Florence.
Exclusive Wedding Venues for Utmost Intimacy
Rent a whole island in County Fermanagh or a medieval abbey in Carcassonne and make it yours exclusively on the day of your wedding! These wedding destinations abroad with large sleeping capacity will give you and your guests a taste of European living at its finest!

Intimate Beach Weddings
Bring your family and closest friends to one of Ireland’s best kept secrets – a small rocky beach upon which overlooks an ancient castle ruin. Hear the splash of the ocean against rocks carved by nature itself for hundreds of years in a lovely coast of Northern Ireland. Dramatic sceneries await you here.

Northern Ireland’s dramatic beaches are some of the best places to get married in Europe. Let your eyes feast on a three-mile long sandy beach in Ballycastle or marvel at the sight of a rugged coastline in one of Ireland’s elopement locations. A white-sand beach enclosed in County Antrim’s lush green hills and a World Heritage at the north coast of Northern Ireland are among your options too. They are natural wonders you won’t see elsewhere!
