The location of a wedding is a reflection on the bride and groom’s personality. From traditional church weddings, to ceremonies at theme parks, to saying a soggy ‘I do’ underwater, the opportunities are endless (and in some cases rather bizarre!) for the soon to be husband and wife. Here at Transun we have picked our top three most spectacular locations for a couple’s big day.
1. Arctic Circle
Deep in the Arctic Circle, the Aurora Borealis, nature’s very own firework display provides a magical backdrop for a winter wedding. Whether at an ice chapel, inside a traditional Lappish kota or in remote wilderness church, the ceremony will certainly be memorable. With opportunities of a husky or reindeer transport for the bride – and perhaps even a snowmobile entrance for the groom, Lapland provides unforgettable and out-of-the-ordinary opportunities for a wedding location. And entertainment for the guests? Building a bride and groom snowman of course!
A relaxed, sun kissed wedding with crystal clear waters, delicious Mediterranean cuisine and locally produced wine, Croatia is a stunning option for a wedding venue. With over 2,000 hours of sunshine each year (just think of the savings on fake tan!), Croatia provides a gorgeous climate as well as location for a wedding. Whether it’s a sunset cruise down the coast or simply listening to the waves crashing on the beach or smelling the quintessential lavender in Hvar that adorns your table decorations, the sights and sounds of this location will provide everlasting memories.
3. Sri Lanka
Many a relationship starts as a ‘fortunate happenstance’ or ‘pleasant surprise’, and with the word serendipity deriving from the old name of Sri Lanka, Serendip, a wedding ceremony located on this island is a touching commemoration to the union.
Whether it’s a Sri Lanka wedding saying ‘I do’ on the iconic white sandy beaches on the coast or confirming your love and commitment in the secluded gardens of a lush tea plantation, Sri Lanka has endless possibilities for the happy couple. Fancy immersing yourself further into the vibrant Sri Lankan culture? A Buddhist blessing following your civil ceremony can also be arranged.
