European Destination Weddings
I’ve been lucky enough to photograph weddings in some of the most beautiful locations in Europe. One of my personal favorites is my time as a Tuscany Wedding Photographer. I’ve spent time shooting couples on the French Riviera and in the French Countryside. In Spain, I got to shoot the wedding of a couple in the vibrant city of Barcelona. A remote island for a wedding in Greece. Also on the gorgeous island of Sicily in the town of Taormina. There are some countries I’ve yet to shoot weddings in. I’m super excited to maybe photograph weddings in places like Croatia or Finland. Most of my experience is in being an Italy Wedding Photographer though. After all it’s one of the most popular places to get married abroad for good reason!
Weddings In Italy
Italy is one of the most popular destination wedding locations on the planet. Not just in Europe. In fact, one in 5 British couples said they would love to have their wedding in Italy. Things can be complex for marriage here. Especially the legal side of getting married in Italy. Though if you want it enough there is no stopping you really because whether you want the Mountains of Lake Garda in the background or would like to wed on the banks of Lake Como, you really can make an Italy wedding happen.
Weddings in France
Most of my destination work is spread over Italy though somewhere I’d love to visit more, is France. I photographed the wedding of a Frenchman and an English lady in a remote place called Domaine Des Bruguières. I loved this outdoor wedding and also their pre-wedding shoot on a secluded beach in Nice. The south coast of France is beautiful though I did some research on some Chateau’s that I would love to photograph weddings at. I found some amazing wedding venues and really hope to get there someday.
Weddings in Cyprus
This beautiful Mediterranean island is quite special to me as I lived here for 4 years. There are some incredible coastal venues in Paphos and Protaras. Though my favorite wedding venues are the remote ones inland and are in towns that are overloaded with Cypriot culture. In the town of Lefkara, there is a beautiful venue called Dafermou Winery that has a real Cypriot authenticity to it and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. With the weather being so great all year round here is no wonder why Cyprus is so popular.
Weddings In Spain
Espana! A great location for a destination wedding as the weather is pretty awesome here too. It has amazing wedding venues from deep in the Spanish countryside to charismatic cities such as Barcelona. As far as British couples are concerned it’s super easy to access too. This makes things easy for your wedding guests and their travel arrangements. Not only do you have mainland Spain, but the islands belonging to this country also are super popular for brides and grooms-to-be. Places such as Ibiza and Majorca are popular, though just type those names into google and hit images and you’ll soon see why!
Weddings In Greece
A very highly considered location for weddings abroad. Most weddings in Greece are stereotypical but for very good reason. The gorgeous weather, blue skies, and blue waters with clean white buildings have destination wedding photographers queuing up to shoot weddings here. Mainland Greece has plenty of culture and history, imagine your wedding being a part of that history! Though more often than not people opt to tie the knot on the greek islands.
Worldwide Destination Weddings
Love covers not just Europe but the whole planet. In almost every continent there is a wedding every day. Destination wedding photographers fly around the world to capture these amazing love stories. As I’m based in Europe that’s where most of my wedding photography takes place though this year I’m heading to a new continent to capture a destination wedding. I’m going to add these countries and images from the weddings to the shortlist (very shortlist for now) as I shoot more weddings across the world. I’ll also put down some places I’d love to shoot weddings. Heading out to new locations and new countries helps with my inspiration to make my award winning wedding photos that I get to share with couples to help give them confidence in booking an experienced photographer.
Weddings In Sri Lanka
My first destination wedding in Asia will take place this year and I’m super excited. With so much experience shooting weddings abroad, I feel super confident about traveling this far for a wedding. Working in the heat is something I’m used too also. I’ll be flying into Columbo and documenting a very adventurous wedding on the west coast of the island. It’s not the most popular place for weddings as it is relatively remote. For people in the west at least. Destination Wedding Photographers don’t always get the opportunity to travel to this location so I’m not going to take a second for granted.
Weddings In Kenya
As I go into 2023 I’m looking back at my first destination wedding of 2022. Priya + Alex had me out to Kenya at Vipingo Ridge not too far from Mombassa for a 3 day Kenyan Destination wedding. After flying out to Nairobi. I had to take a 2-hour flight to a coastal town called Malindi. I’m in the process of writing up a blog about this amazing cultural wedding. The ceremony took place in a mango forest with multiple events happening around it, including a Sangeet on the beach.
