When it comes to dreaming about their perfect wedding day, everyone has different tastes for the venue. Some prefer to choose an iconic venue in their hometown while others opt for a sunny wedding abroad instead. In Europe there are a range of wonderful cities to choose from which can make your big day that bit extra special.
Maghull Coaches, a coach hire firm in the UK, have provided their choices for the top five European cities to get married…
1. Santorini, Greece
Santorini is perhaps one of the most beautiful locations on the planet. This Greek island provides a stunning setting for a venue, complete with the backdrop of several islands and volcanoes surrounded by clear blue ocean. This picturesque destination offers breath-taking views that are guaranteed to provide perfect photograph opportunities for you and your guests. The service from locals is superb and Greek cuisine perhaps offers some of the finest delicacy around.
2. Dubrovnik, Croatia
The popularity of Dubrovnik may have skyrocketed in the last decade thanks to filming of television series Game of Thrones, but this is no place for a Red Wedding! This gorgeous city is rich in Medieval history and is another superb location for taking once-in-a-lifetime pictures and making memories. Here you have the option of a city or beach wedding, either of which offers spectacular sea views.
3. Amalfi Coast, Italy
Next up we head to the incredibly romantic country of Italy. This is a wonderful country that isn’t too far from home yet still provides incredible weather. The Amalfi Coast is a popular choice for honeymoons, but more and more couples are beginning to identify this destination’s benefits as a wedding location. There is sunny weather all year round yet not so much that the heat is unbearable. And of course, there’s perhaps no better country for delivering outstanding food and wine.
4. Algarve, Portugal
The Algarve is a popular choice with families for a Portuguese summer holiday, but it’s also a great place to mark your dream wedding day. The Algarve is a perfect spot for beach weddings, and you can also legally have a civil ceremony or catholic wedding even if you’re not a resident. Weddings here are most popular during the spring months of April to June. During this time, the weather becomes warmer and the crowds are typically quieter until the summer holidays have started.
5. Venice, Italy
Venice is perhaps the romantic capital of the world. This Italian town is suitable for any romantic occasion, from engagements to weddings and honeymoons. Venice is a town like no other and guarantees stunning sights every corner you take. You won’t struggle to find a suitable wedding venue in this city. Plus, what better way to celebrate than with a relaxing water taxi and the sounds of a serene atmosphere?
