Destination Wedding
Back to previous page
As the wedding season sets in, everything needs to be perfect – the perfect trousseau, great food, the best guest list, and a romantic honeymoon. But the wedding is the quintessential area of importance. So should we stay in or get out? Destination weddings have become the flavour of the season, more important than outfits and honeymoons.

Ever thought of getting married like a Princess at a breathtaking Palace, with fairytale settings or in a cruise where the captain conducts the ceremony? This is the key of the season. The pictures do not do justify the architecture of the Palaces or to the sheer diversity of the venues. It is an experience, which will be unparalleled. To find that eternal place, think bigger. Just imagine the old world charm of castles, or a sunset backdrop for the wedding of your dream.

Considered having an ice wedding? With a chapel carved out of ice every year, and special custom-made ‘ice’ wedding packages, it is possible to be a real Ice Princess, in a small village near Sweden. No two chapels are quite the same in this unique location, as the chapel itself eventually melts away into the River Torne. Whether we choose matching ski suits, kilts or the traditional wedding attire, having a wedding at the Ice Hotel is an experience for all present.

If one is not a fan of ice and still want to be a princess, and then think like the Mittals and arrive at Versailles. The fairy tale wedding of Mittal’s daughter was held at the Vaux Le Vicomte Château, in Versailles, France. The historical 17th century masterpiece is complete with fountains and lush gardens, exquisite furniture, period decor and crackling fires in antique fireplaces, quite the place to warm the soul. With a host of movies shot at this fabulously grand location, it is also enough to make us feel like a movie star.

One of the most magnificent sunset in the world and maybe a place so beautiful to be true, where the couple can stand atop a piece of land and take their vows in front of the stunning sunset. Many couples fly in specially to get married in front of the Santorini sunset, where they stand holding hands and waiting for the moment when the sun sets and they are pronounced man and wife. That is the starting point of a journey, where people are always looking for something special, or actually going that extra mile – literally and metaphorically, to make the event a day to remember.

Fairy tales immediately transport us to Venice, the land of beautiful churches. One of the most romantic cities in the world, with a reminiscence of romance between Juliet and Romeo, it is the perfect place for a classic wedding in an Italian palazzo or in the ambience of a church with famous paintings of Titian and Michelangelo as guests of honour.

Just imagine a crystal clear blue sea, white sail boats and villas lined alongside the sea, Capri is one of the most typically beautiful spots with the simplistic beauty of its coastline. Capri is the destination of choice for many celebritiy weddings, especially at the Grand Hotel Quisisana, which draws inspiration from Mediterranean art and lifestyle, whilst intrinsically remaining an Italian hotel. Getting married in stunning picturesque Roman villas promises to be an experience.

It is easy to fall in love with wine country and nothing more is really required to have a rollicking country wedding. Stunning countryside coupled with art and the haziness of wine that join together to croon you in style. Taking a stroll down grass roads where your visitors may actually get lost or never find their way back home, with simple guitar-strumming and sultry afternoons of free wheeling time, it’s all about a serene wedding at a villa in Tuscany.

Imagine getting married on the ocean waves, with the ship's captain joining you as man and wife. Princess cruise makes this dream a reality, with the line's signature "Tie the Knot At Sea" wedding program. The wedding on this cruise features an onboard wedding chapel, decorated in flowers and candlelight for the special day. The line offers ceremonies complete with a number of special touches that bring together the talents of the ship's chefs, musicians and photographers. This dream wedding would include live music; champagne; bridal bouquet and groom's matching boutonniere; a photo package with deluxe canvas print; a wedding cake; a souvenir wedding certificate and the services of Princess' onboard wedding coordinators to make sure the day runs smoothly. After all, the perfect weddings are made of these.

For many couples a morning or sunset Hawaii wedding on a romantic Maui beach is the ultimate dream come true ceremony. To feel the ocean breeze, have the skin kissed by the sun; bury the feet in the warm sand while exchanging Hawaii Wedding Vows is an experience that will never be forgotten. Getting married by the ocean will honour the Hawaiian traditions of power and spirit. Maui has a variety of gorgeous fully private and semi private beaches to offer, allowing an area with suitable privacy for the couple and their guests to enjoy the dream day.

It is said marriages are made in Heaven, so why not make it an exotic lifetime affair. Imagine exchanging vows with your beloved on the wedding day, decked like a princess against a palatial backdrop. The charm of tying the nuptial knot in the Pink City Jaipur is hard to resist. The lavish affair of marriage gets an ultimate high on the Palace wedding in Jaipur. The prince and the princess of the occasion can't find a more beautiful venue than city of Jaipur. The city opens as a beautiful brides blushing with all its seductive allures. The presence of elephants, camels and horse’s procession including local Folk performers, dancers and musicians, snake charmers, puppet shows, kalbeliyas, along with a smart wedding band provide no less than a fairy tale wedding experience.

Picture a wedding in a welcoming, luxurious atmosphere either in the mountains of Germany or in a royal style at Jaipur, with happy friends and family toasting the couple. Music plays and a feast of fine food that awaits; going exotic is a truly memorable way to tie the knot.
