Are you interested in planning a European destination wedding, but not exactly sure where? Well, let these beautiful photographs inspire you! There are several iconic locations in Europe that you can choose for your destination wedding. Most people automatically think of Paris, France when they think of a European wedding, and why wouldn’t they?! It’s the city of romance and glamour! Don’t just utilize the Eiffel Tower for your wedding photographs, but other French landmarks as well! You can have your wedding at Versailles, or maybe take photos on the spectacular Alexander Bridge (you can see the silhouette of the Eiffel Tower from the bridge!).

If you want to have your wedding in London, definitely capture Big Ben in your background! London is known for it’s rather cloudy weather, even in the summer; so be prepared! Smaller towns in the United Kingdom, like Cambridge, also have cute little tea shops along the street that would be adorable for photographs; and Cambridge University has castle-like schools that would be stunning as a photo backdrop. Also near the UK (but not part of it) is Ireland. Ireland, like Scotland, has beautiful, green hills. The republic also has gorgeous castles (like Castle Leslie in Glaslough, pictured below!) You can also head over to Dublin, where you can see the Dublin castle, or visit the many parks that Dublin has to offer.

One of my personal favorite locations for a destination wedding would have to be Italy. I love the rustic feel, and not to mention the delicious food (pasta, pizza, and gelato– yum!)! There are so many beautiful locations in Italy to have your wedding or utilize for photographs: Lake Garda, Lake Como, the Amalfi Coast, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, or the Colosseum! You can head towards Eastern Europe and have your wedding in Germany, or maybe go south of France towards Spain.

Choose the location that best suits you and your fiance’s love story. Make use of these beautiful cities as the backdrop for your wedding memories and photographs!
