Many couples dream about hosting their wedding in Europe. To ensure that the vision you have in your heart becomes reality, we suggest these four beautiful venues in vastly different parts of Europe. We'll take you to the shore of the famous Lake Como, to the coast in Sorrento, to the center of Rome, and to the outskirts of Paris. Hopefully, you will be able to host your wedding in one of these stunning destinations as soon as the international borders open and things return to normal again!
Probably the most famous wedding venue on the lake is Villa Balbiano. The splendid 16th-century building has been the center of social activity for Italian nobility for hundreds of years — with festivals, banquets, and dances that never ended. Nowadays the villa has become the biggest private residence on the lake with a plot size of more than 2 hectares. There is an exquisite garden, an outdoor pool, and a private dock – which means you can go for a romantic boat ride on the lake right after your ceremony! Couples from all over the world come here to get married, and that even includes celebrities – Giorgia Gabriele has got married here recently!
On the Amalfi Coast
On the Amalfi Coast near Sorrento, the beautiful Villa Astor is nestled in perfection. The light beige building rises on the rocky coast, like a true art piece, and through the windows of the villa, one can not only enjoy the sea view but also the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius beyond. A wedding on the coast of Italy, in a botanical garden, located on the territory of the villa, with a collection of over 1000 plant species is every bride's dream.
In the heart of Rome
If you find the little streets of the Eternal City more attractive than the coast, Villa Clara is perfect and ready to open its doors for you. For decades it's served as a private residence for a noble Italian family, but now intimate private events are hosted inside the Art Deco interiors. The villa is decorated in dark shades with details of amethyst and marble, which on their own can serve as a unique decor for the celebration. And the exquisite rooftop terrace with a panoramic view over Rome is a wonderful location for a memorable ceremony or dinner under the stars.
A Chateau near Paris
A wedding in a historic landmark is a daring, but unrealistic dream for most. However, forty minutes from Paris, in a 75-hectare park with two lakes, a magnificent cascade of fountains, a 19th-century glass pavilion, and a greenhouse, Chateau de Villette sits pretty amongst the stunning greenery. At Chateau de Villette, you can enjoy a wedding weekend with your guests – there are seven suites located in the main building and just as many in the adjoining building. After the ceremony, you can enjoy the relaxing countryside atmosphere, take horse riding classes and try some of the finest French meals prepared by a personal chef.
