5 stunning locales across Europe for a destination wedding straight out of your dreams

Say ‘I do’ at one of these picturesque spots!

While there’s no doubt that the forts and palaces of Rajasthan, the beaches of Goa, or the backwaters of Kerala make for a dreamy wedding in India, the thought of getting married in Europe is undeniably impossible to resist. From picture-perfect beaches to breathtaking architecture, the continent has it all.

We round up five cities that will serve as the ideal location for a memorable (and stunning!) wedding. 

Tuscany, Italy

From Venice, Florence, to the Amalfi Coast, Italy has no dearth of romantic destinations to get hitched at, but Tuscany tops that list. With its lush undulating hills, opulent mansions, to the delicious food and wine, it makes for an enchanting location for your nuptials. Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma seemed to agree too—they tied the knot at a lavish 800-year-old villa in the Tuscan countryside. 

Santorini, Greece

Are you a big fan of the movie Mamma Mia? Then live out your fantasy with a destination wedding in sunny Greece. Santorini might be too touristy—but it’s popular for a reason. The white-washed houses with blue domes and the jaw-dropping views of the sea make it the perfect backdrop for a laidback, postcard-worthy beach wedding.  

Porto, Portugal

Want a bit of both the coastal vibe and historical aesthetic for your big day? Pick Porto, a bustling city on Portugal’s north-western coast. With its turquoise blue waters, brightly-coloured houses with terracotta-lined roofs and magnificent estates, it’s the perfect destination for those who want a city wedding. Our tip: plan during the spring months, as that is when the weather is at its mildest. 

Dubrovnik, Croatia     

While it may be most popular for being one of the locations where the hit TV series Game of Thrones was filmed, Dubrovnik makes the ideal destination for your big day as well. Apart from Porto, it is another city that offers the best of both worlds—a city and a beach vibe. You can’t go wrong with one of the ancient villas that come with a stunning view of the sea for your wedding. 

Provence, France

Located in Southern France, Provence offers a completely different from the more popular Paris, but is just as romantic. Think lavender fields stretching for as far as the eyes can see, lush vineyards, and rolling hills. The region is dotted with chateaus that ooze old-world charm—book one of them for an intimate destination wedding.
