Santorini has a certain charm with its breathtaking views of the deep blue Aegean Sea contrasting with the white wall of its architecture. Not to mention is gorgeous sunsets and romantic atmosphere it is the perfect destination for a wedding. A quintessential Santorini venue, we can’t get enough of Le Ciel.

Mexico City, Mexico
A popular wedding destination, Mexico will have you spoilt for choice. Whether you’re after pristine white-sand beaches, seaport locations, mountain backdrops, or a city enriched in tradition and culture, Mexico has it all. Our fave would be the Convent of San Hipolito in Mexico City. This historical monument built in the 16th century is now host to the most elaborate weddings thanks to arduous restoration work.

Lebanese weddings are known for being loud, extravagant, and festive filled with music, laughter and dancing! Naturally a destination wedding in the heart of Lebanon is a great idea. With an array of gorgeous wedding venues, one we’re particularly fond of is the Byblos Sur Mer. Why Byblos? It home to the mythical site of the ever-so-romantic legend of Adonis and Aphrodite. With outstanding outdoor and indoor spaces this location is sure to impress.

Balmy and laid-back, Florida is a well-known wedding destination. What’s not so well known is the diversity of its many wedding-ready properties, from quaint inns to historic hotels to gorgeous beach resorts. If you’re a Disney lover, look no further than the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. This Victorian-inspired beauty specialises in fairy-tale fetes.

A picturesque city that has the most famous pieces of art, an array of gorgeous monuments, landmarks and attractions that forms the perfect backdrop for a wedding – Paris is the ultimate wedding destination. If your dreaming of getting married in the ‘City of Love’ we say take a peek at the quintessentially French Shangri-La Hotel in the heart of Paris. Former residence of Prince Roland Bonaparte, this hotel is decadent and has an uninterrupted view of the Eiffel Tower.

Bellarocca Island, Philippines
Considered an island paradise, the Philippines make for the most beautiful island wedding destination. If you were dreaming of having your wedding in an unexplored destination, than look no further than Bellarocca. The island itself is a wedding venue with outdoor and indoor locations.

Queenstown, New Zealand
A little closer home, yet still a world apart New Zealand is one of the world’s best wedding destinations.

Kabupaten Badung, Bali
Gorgeous views, tropical weather, romantic surroundings and affordable for all the family – a Bali wedding is always a great idea. A popular wedding destination Bali has stunning beachfront backdrops for a tropical wedding. We love the chapel at Ayana resort – an all glass chapel that majestically towers above the resort; it promises to fulfil the wedding ceremony of your dreams. If you were after exclusivity and a little bit of glam, the Bulgari resort is something to behold.

Maui, Hawaii’s second largest island has strict building codes limiting the built environment to cloud the natural beauty of the island. If the undisturbed views of mountains, lava-rock cliffs, surely the stunning beachfronts, pineapple fields, and coffee orchards will have you swayed. The Four Seasons resort in Maui is breathtaking and a perfect location for any wedding – from a low-key elopement to a major garden wedding.
