It is no secret that when you choose a venue for your wedding, half of the bridal planning load will be lifted. By now, you must be constantly ambushed from those typical and most common destinations that would be ideal to tie the knot, but do us a favour and ask yourself: are they ideal for your special romantic love? Do those places represent both of your authentic personalities? Leave behind expectations and traditions, dive into your own essence. After all, the chosen location will carry the symbolism of entering your new chapter in life.
Instead of focusing on which specific place will host your wedding, let’s approach this subject from another perspective. We’ve curated a list of unique wedding venues based on a location that will set the foundation when it comes to choosing.
Do you love being near water? Then you don’t need to venture as far as to the tropical islands or Mediterranean coasts. Lakes have unique beauty about them and provide picturesque backdrops for your ceremony with their lush nature. No matter whether you are an adventurous soul or a hopeless romantic at heart; lake villas or cabins offer plenty of opportunities for you to elevate your wedding location aesthetic.
Imagine saying the iconic “I DO’s” in front of a waterfall. Serene beauty to grace your senses as the water cascades down and birdsong praises your union. Do you know a waterfall near you? You can have your ceremony on the open and choose a charming venue nearby to host the reception.
These monumental wonders of nature may not be one of the first choices when browsing for wedding locations but they might prove to be just what you need for your minimalistic, outdoor, or micro wedding. If you want to wow your guests nothing adds grandeur like their majestic presence with waterfalls flowing from everywhere. Another asset is that nearby fjords there are a number of cozy nordic properties that can serve as a reception wedding venue but also for accommodation.
We continue from lavish nature to golden sands. Live the Arabian nights and venture through captivating cities whose air is infused with spices, where the sunsets are crimson and the evenings are lit with thousands of lanterns. There are countless unique wedding venues to choose from and almost every one of them is adorned with opulence and elegance.
