So you’re thinking of somewhere romantic for your destination wedding? No problem, we’ve got some absolutely gorgeous wedding venues to share with you. Italy and Spain are the most popular European countries for British couples who want to tie the knot abroad, and it’s not hard to see why. Read on to discover breathtaking views, luxury service, and unforgettable venues that can be the spot for your dream celebration.

Let’s start with Italy, a country that promises history, culture and paradise. First up is Baglio Regia Corte, in a Regia immersed in the Palermo countryside, with bales of hay, candles, lights, wood and wild flowers, it makes the ideal setting for a rural-chic reception. Hotel Monte Meraviglia is another must-see, surrounded by the sweet and green hills of Umbria, this family run hotel provides a warm and joyful welcome. For fairytale grandeur, Tenuta Villa Cusona is also top of our list: imagine a 17th centruy structure full of charm, an incomparable wedding venue nestled in the Tuscan hills.

In the heart of Italy, Agriturismo Castel d’Acone is another fantastic venue, where you can marry in an ancient farmhouse complex, and your guests can enjoy their whole trip there – with mountain horse riding, biking and elegant swimming pools. If you’re a lover of Chianti wine, then why not have a wedding surrounded by the vineyards at Villa La Palagina? The villa offers for the wedding reception a Tuscan cuisine with gourmet reinterpretations, made with local products. Another villa venue is Hotel Villa Condulmer, an 18th century gem in Treviso, where you can have an incredibly romantic reception outdoors in their magnificent gardens.

In Capriolo, you can opt for the simply magical Cascina San Lorenzowhere you can celebrate indoors or outdoors, as you’re treated to a feast of delicious Italian delights.  Tenuta di Groppoli, in the province of Pistoia, is a splendid location immersed in Tuscan countryside, where history meets modern luxury and rustic glamour. Dating back to the 16th century, Castello di Xirumi is surrounded by one of the largest citrus groves in Sicily, and what’s more fairytale than getting married in a castle?! Or there’s Il Castello Borghese, just outside of Rome, a castle venue so perfect it doesn’t seem real!

If you fancy getting married by the glorious Lake Como, then look no further than Villa Rubini Redaelli – there’s great versatility of outdoor spaces, in the gardens and on the terraces by the lake, not to mention the luxurious rooms to house 18 guests! Alternatively, discover Villa Troubetskoy, in Mogliano Veneto: an ancient historic residence from the 17th century, descendant of Tsar Nicholas I.

Did you think we had forgotten Spain? Of course not. If the above venues in Italy aren’t what you’re looking for, then there’s one and only recommendation for a wedding in Spain: Castilla Termal Monasterio de Valbuena. A monastery setting, with courtyards, cloisters, chapel and more, you simply can’t get anymore romantic!
