Destination Wedding Venues
Outdoor wedding venues
Enjoy the panoramic views of Chianti hills as you exchange vows in Italy or be at the center 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 castellos. 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 or an authentic thatched roof cottage at the center of a forest. Whatever your taste is, there are hundreds of outdoor European wedding venues waiting for you on our selection!
If getting married inside a charming castle is your personal vision of a dream wedding, then you have plenty of options to choose when it comes to castle wedding venues in Europe. Historic circular towers in Ireland, standing strong in front of calm bodies of water. Germany’s medieval castles found in the middle of unspoiled nature or perched high on a mountaintop. French fairytale chateaux with their turrets and towers, luxury interiors and spacious courtyards are too gorgeous not to mention. There’s also an observatory castle in Ireland with ne-ogothic features and a dramatic castle ruin for an elopement in Northern Ireland which is considered as a Scheduled Historic Monument. These are only some of the most gorgeous European wedding castles 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! Here’s a preview of what you might find: a French farmhouse with an ancient abbey converted into an outdoor pool, Game of Thrones shooting locations such as Ballintoy Harbour and The Dark Hedges! A neoclassical hilltop church ruin above gorgeous Italian villages will certainly not disappoint. And who would’ve guessed that you can get married in a natural wonder at the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland? It's a place with hexagonal-shaped basalt columns formed from an ancient volcanic eruption millions of years ago. Yes, we can arrange a wedding right at this spot for you!
Marry on a mountain
If you’re one of those couples who are haunted by the idea of getting married on top of a mountain, thousands of feet above ground, or with an imposing mountain range as the backdrop to your vows – then there are plenty of fitting wedding locations in Europe for you. There’s that boutique castle in Italy’s South Tyrol, with breath-taking views of the Dolomite mountains. It’s “the one” for couples who dream of a majestic landscape for their big day but with the luxurious perks of a five star hotel. We also suggest a cosy wooden Mountain Lodge with splendid outdoor terraces overlooking the Bavarian mountains and forests. Or how about combining lake and mountain and saying your “I do’s” in the stunning setting of Lake Eibsee at the base of Zugspitze, Germany’s highest mountain?
Rustic wedding venues
Whether your definition of rustic wedding venue implies a charming thatched-roof cottage, a tasteful shabby chic farmhouse, an authentic wedding barn or a quirky tipi tent popped-up in the middle of the woods – you will find many such charismatic wedding venues in Europe!
Get married on a lake
Some of the most unique destination wedding locations in Europe are those amid a serene body of water. Imagine a tiny chapel on an islet in the middle of a lake in Ireland, a wedding estate with an unmatched scenery of Lake Como, and a romantic 5-star villa hidden in Florence.
Villas & châteaux
An intimate marriage celebration calls out for an exclusive wedding venue in Europe. Ensure complete privacy on your special day by hiring out an entire chateau in France, a self-catering castle in Ireland, a luxurious villa in Italy or a mountain lodge in Germany’s Bavarian mountains.
Adventure wedding on a cliff
Dramatic setting, awe-inspiring views, off the beaten track location, adventure wedding… If these are some of the words that come to mind when you think about your ideal wedding day, then you’ve come to the right place! Let us introduce you to the wedding location of your dreams – The Cliffs of Moher in Ireland. But luckily, this isn’t the only place where you can marry in a stunning setting hundreds of feet above ground and sea. Why not also consider Northern Ireland’s rugged North Atlantic Coastline where venues such as Dunluce, Dunseverick and Kinbane Castles lie?
Elope on a beach
Europe is blessed with a variety of beautiful beaches, from white stretches of sandy beach in sunny Italy to the dramatic and wind-swept beaches of Ireland. Get married in a Civil ceremony on a beach in Amalfi Coast, elope to Ireland and get hitched on a rocky beach in Dingle – with the added bonus of gorgeous views over a historic castle ruin – or say ‘I do’ among the rugged North Atlantic coastline of Northern Ireland. And don’t worry, it’s absolutely possible to get legally-married on the beach in all three of these stunning European wedding destinations.
Wonder what sunset looks like in European cities? Choose to get married in a unique intimate wedding venue in Florence, say ‘yes’ on a gondola ride in Venice, fulfill your romantic dreams and elope to Paris or celebrate with a pint of Guinness after getting hitched in Dublin.
Calling all oenophiles, wine aficionados and connoisseurs! It doesn’t matter what you call yourself, if you are a couple who loves wine – or even if you can’t tell your Merlot from your Malbec – then why not host your intimate destination wedding among some of Europe’s best vineyards?
Marry in historic ruins
Nothing says adventure wedding quite as much as exchanging your vows in the setting of an abandoned castle, an abbey ruin or the remains of a historic tower. You will find ruins of all shapes and sizes for your destination wedding in Europe, whether you elope or bring guests.
My husband Daniel and I decided we wanted to do an elopement overseas when it came time to getting married. I had done a google search and looked at various companies, but Peach Perfect just really stood out to us... I would recommend them to anyone out there who wants to do something out of the norm and catered to exactly what you as a couple want. Hands down the best day of our life so far! We will forever look fondly back on our memories of Italy. Thank you all so much!
We had an amazing experience with Eleonora from Peach Perfect Weddings. She helped us plan our wedding in Positano, remaining flexible as we changed our plans from a true elopement with just the two of us to a slightly bigger event involving our immediate family and close friends. We appreciated how she helped us throughout the months leading up to the wedding and then especially on the day of the event. We highly recommend Peach Perfect Weddings for planning your special day!
