The day you get married should be the most special day of your life and the location of the ceremony can be the most important part of the occasion. If you have the perfect setting to exchange vows it can not only make beautiful pictures but can set the mood and tone for your future life together. Here we will look at five gorgeous places to say ‘I do’.
1. Castle Wedding
The best way to make sure your wedding feels like the fairytale you’ve always dreamed of is to have it in your very own castle! England is home of some of the most beautiful castles and manor houses in the world, often located in sprawling countryside. If you have found Prince Charming and you want to make sure you feel like a true princess, castles like Leeds Castle and Rowton Castle offer bespoke wedding packages. Or if you are looking to wed your Heathcliff in an Austen-esque ceremony, a quick Google search will show you hundreds of gorgeous country mansions that will cater to every need.
2. Boat Wedding
Having the majestic, sprawling ocean as the backdrop to your wedding is a fantastic way of adding the wow factor to the day and will create a day you and your guests will never forget. Many cruise liner holiday companies will have packages you can choose from, sometimes with discount prices for large bookings, so you can be sure all your family and friends can attend. Alternatively, for a more intimate occasion, you could hire a small yacht or sailboat to take you out to sea at sunset. There are many types of small boat available for wedding parties and it is a really interesting way to celebrate. Decorate with a few fairy lights and enjoy the open sky above you; a truly magical atmosphere.
3. Beach Wedding
In keeping with the ocean theme, beach weddings continue to be an extremely popular choice for couples. Places like Thailand and the Caribbean have some of the most gorgeous coastline in the world and with white sands, sunshine and clear skies; this type of setting can make the perfect metaphorical start to your wedded life together. It can be expensive flying family and friends out to far distant lands but you will find many all-inclusive resorts have great deals on group bookings, particularly for something as special as a wedding and you can be sure that if you do end up having to spend a little extra, it will ensure you have the perfect day. Young couples love beach weddings for the simplicity; the surroundings speak for themselves and you and your partner get a chance to witness natural beauty as well as each other’s.
4. Disney Wedding
If you have children or are still a big kid yourself, Disneyworld could be the perfect choice for you. Its famous Wedding Pavilion is lavish and will really add some fun and sparkle to your day with great photo opportunities for you and all the family. Packages often include the chance for guests to go on the rides and a sumptuous reception so you can be sure you will be taken care of. This is a great choice for people who have large extended family or those who want to turn your special day into a great family holiday too.
5. Extreme Wedding
If you are a thrill-seeker or adrenaline junkie, maybe this is the choice for you. If you love extreme sports or have a wild hobby that you share with your one true love, why not incorporate that into your big day? There have been skydiving weddings where couples have exchanged vows mid-fall in full wedding attire, or perhaps you like mountain climbing; why not scale one and have a private ceremony at the top. These may sound like crazy ideas but a little research can go a long way.
You will find that somewhere in the world there is someone who can marry you anywhere and there are thousands of bespoke packages available if you know where to look. If you can’t find what you are looking for, you could incorporate your passion into your wedding using theme and decoration. Your guests will get a chance to be part of you day in a special way, helping them really celebrate for you in a fun way.
There are so many gorgeous places all over the world to suit your tastes and expectations for the most important day in your life and you can be sure to find something to suit your budget. You will remember it forever so picking an interesting and unexpected location can make the day that little bit extra special.
