Wedding venues in Europe are abundant! With so much history and beauty, there’s no shortage of incredible spots to tie the knot.
And it’s really no surprise, is it? After all, Europe is one of the most romantic places on earth! Unbelievable architecture, cobblestone streets, dreamy canals, cozy coffee shops, charming outdoor picnics in a garden (complete with wine)…these are the types of visuals that come to mind when thinking about Europe. Everywhere you look is a perfect backdrop, and as a wedding photographer in Europe, I’m living the dream!
That being said, having lots of options has its downsides. Namely, how do you choose?
Here are a few of my all-time favourite wedding venues in Europe, which will hopefully inspire you and help you find a setting that makes your and your partner’s heart happy.
Domaine La Fauconnie Wedding Venue in South France
Domaine La Fauconnie is an amazing mansion in France, near Bordeaux. This property is absolutely bursting with charm (just like me ?!). The orangery, inspired by the Eiffel Tour, is a gorgeous glass-walled building and the perfect place to dance the night away.
There’s also a lovely space for outdoor ceremonies, complete with a heated pool and rotunda. The property is green and tranquille and offers the ultimate privacy since it’s exclusively yours on your special day.
The vine-covered mansion can accommodate up to 25 people, so your closest family and friends can celebrate together all weekend. For the rest of the festivities, this French wedding venue can host up to 200 people
Domaine La Fauconnie is one of my favourite wedding venues in Europe because it’s both versatile and stunning. Having both indoor and outdoor options as well as accommodations is extremely convenient, and since every square inch of the property is immaculate, you really can’t go wrong!
Borgo Di Castelvecchio Wedding Venue in Tuscany, Italy
Who doesn’t love the idea of getting married in breathtaking Tuscany? I mean seriously, the whole region is like a scene from a fairytale, and Borgo Di Castelvecchio in Val d’Orcia fits the same description.
The Borgo is a village from medieval times, rich with history and charm. From the Italian-style gardens, to the impressive Villa, to the quaint restored farmhouses, this wedding venue in Italy is truly unforgettable.
There are multiple spaces where couples and their loved ones can celebrate, including an outdoor area with a panoramic pool and stunning views, the Granary, decorated gazebos, and even a small church. Plus, there are 32 rooms on the property to accommodate overnight guests.
I absolutely love the atmosphere of this Tuscan venue. It’s truly a special place and definitely one of my top wedding venues in Europe.
Idno Theatre Wedding Venue in Iceland
Okay, this place is next level and definitely one of the best wedding venues in Europe. Iceland is an extremely cool country, and an awesome place to say, “I do”. That being said, the weather and terrain can be a little…well, rough.
This wedding venue in Europe is perfect for couples who love the idea of an Iceland wedding, but aren’t into the idea of having their family members hanging out in the unforgiving conditions outdoors while exchanging their nuptials.
The Idno Theatre is an event and creative space in the centre of Reykjavík. The property showcases incredible Scandinavian architecture with blends historic and modern touches in such an elegant and interesting way. There are two spaces for couples to choose from—the Grand Hall seats up to 120 guests and can host up to 300 guests at the reception, and the second floor, which has a stunning view and seats up to 60 guests and can host up to 100 guests in reception.
If you do plan on getting married in Iceland, I recommend booking your wedding photographer for two days so that you can get some incredible outdoor adventure photos, too!
I know that just looking at these gorgeous European wedding venues gets me excited. I hope that it gets you excited about your special day, too!
