For an incredible snowy wedding you should head to Lake Bled in Slovenia. While during the summer it can be quite charming, the winter is when it really comes alive. The church is located on a tiny island in the middle of the lake that you can take a boat to and from the church steps you can see colossal white mountains in the distance that make for the perfect wedding backdrop. On the hilltop by the lake you can also see a mystical medieval castle that overlooks the church. For amazing snowy wedding photos, head to the mountains or ski resort where you’re guaranteed a winter wonderland.
For an idyllic beach wedding, one of the best places to go is the Amalfi Coast in Italy. This beautiful coastline is lined by colourful fishing villages, steep and rocky cliffs, and small beaches that link into beautiful blue ocean. Positano in particular is known as one of the most beautiful places in Italy, with famous beaches and gardens hidden in difficult to reach places. Rather than visiting during the summer, where the sun is scorching and the beaches are crowded, visit in spring for a slightly cooler climate and some peace and quiet.
If you want scenery then this location is nothing but scenery. Hotel Budir in Iceland is situated on a lava field with a church only a short distance away. This church is known simply as ‘the black church’ and is one of the most iconic landmarks in Iceland. It’s small and humble but sits on an open, almost entirely empty plane with a breath-taking backdrop of glaciers and mountains behind it. You can get married here or at the hotel while some couples choose to brave the cold and get married on the tiny beach. Don’t leave without exploring this amazing landscape and experience a real fairy tale wedding.
If your wedding budget is a little bit tight but you still want to tie the knot abroad, Cyprus is a great option. There are a lot of excellent resorts and hotels overlooking the ocean that aren’t as expensive as you might think. Of course, it helps if you have an open mind. If you come to Cyprus without nay expectations you’re going to be pleasantly surprised and you’ll find that keeping your wedding simple is a great way to get the most out of your location.
