Breathtaking wedding locations
Can you imagine anything more romantic than taking a Pletna boat ride across Lake Bled on your special day? Get married at the Church of the Assumption on Bled Island in one of Europe’s hidden gems, Slovenia and you can do just that.

Greece is famous for its food, and if you get married in Santorini, you can treat guests to delicious traditional Greek food like seafood and souvlaki. You’ll enjoy a bilingual Greek and English service and traditional music. Once you’ve nailed the perfect spot for your wedding, you can learn the Greek tradition of plate smashing!
