You do not have to be classic or old fashioned to want to get married in one of these places. It is more than enough just to feel good in the location. If you prefer a themed wedding or a specific type of decoration, you can adapt these locations. The important thing is that you feel good.

These historical spaces give a special ambience to weddings, not only because of their historical significance, but also because buildings such as palaces, monasteries, estates and manors are places that are less and less present in our daily lives and in modern society.  Getting married in one of these locations is like entering a different era and living a whole day separately to any other day of your life.
