Our Top 10 Exquisite Wedding Destinations in the World


1. France - Chateau Vaux-le-Vicomte Maincy 

This grand 17th Century Castle is the perfect setting for a romantic princess-style wedding. With its baroque style elegance, guests will be transported back in time as vows are exchanged in the garden of Andres' Le Notres'.



2. USA (Colorado) - Vail Mountain

What makes Vail Mountain stand out is the Wedding Deck, an outdoor amphitheater built into the mountain -- so your guests look down at you exchanging vows, with the Rockies below.



3. St. Lucia - Ladera, SoufriÈre

The open air Paradise Pavillion is this destinations best attraction. With a 1,100 foot vista off the Piton Mountains, this location will have you feeling like a dream has come alive.



4. Bali - Alila Ubud Resort

Host your nuptials in this picturesque and mystical setting with its mountains surrounding the resort and its lush gardens as your ultimate wedding backdrop.


5. Jamaica - Rockhouse Hotel

Taking you away from the traditional setting of walking down an isle, Rockhouse gives an incredible and beautiful alternative by walking down a bridge.


6. India - The Oberoi Udaivilas

This view alone would have made her say "Yes" all over again. The Oberoi is set in a Indian fairy tale with its high towers and expansive gardens but the allure does not stop there. On arrival guests are transported to the hotel by boat, if that's not exclusive, I don't know what is.


7. Greece - La Maltese Hotel

The five star hotel accommodates up to 24 persons but within its wedding package is 3 whole days hire of the hotel including the spa.


8. Italy - Castello di Vincigliata

This medieval castle is one of Tuscany's greatest secrets. Swooping towers and the rolling hillside is the perfect backdrop for an exquisite five star wedding. The bride will feel like a princess and the groom may come charging into the ceremony unto his trusty stead.


9. USA - Lake Placid Retreat

This idyllic retreat and almost feels like northern Italy. One of the best parts about the location is that you can have a fireside ceremony and then lead guests to a lakeside tented reception.


10. Anguilla- Viceroy Resort

Haute style meets the ambiance of the picturesque Caribbean ocean. Exchange vows with the sea as your back drop and then later after the nuptials, have a romantic rendezvous in one of the resort's invisible pools.

Exchange your vows in style and try one of these exclusive retreats.
