Europe is a favourite travel destination for holiday makers, be it for a short weekend break or full on beach break. With so many beautiful countries being a short plane journey away, it is little wonder that weddings are now also becoming popular in Europe too. If you are considering adding a little twist to your wedding, why not try organising a European wedding for you and your friends and family? After all, getting your nearest and dearest together for one of the biggest days of your life is important and the location you will choose will speak volumes about the love you share. No matter where you choose to get married in Europe, be sure to check that both you and your wedding party all have a European Health Insurance Card to take with them for the duration of the wedding trip. You can get your EHIC card on .
Here are just a small handful of the best locations and countries to get married in, in Europe:

In particular many people have pointed out the beautiful Oxarafoss waterfall found a mere 30 minutes’ drive from the capital particularly beautiful. It even has a chapel in which to house your guests- just remember to wrap up warm.
Castillo De Santa Catalina, Spain
If you are looking for a spot of sun and history, then be sure to make your way to Spain’s medieval fortress of Castillo de Santa Catalina for your Big Day. This destination is set in a beautiful plot of land and offers impressive views of the sea. This beautiful place even comes with a host of hotel rooms, perfect for housing all of your guests.
Cochem Castle, Germany
For that fairy tale feeling, why not look into tying the knot in the beautiful Cochem Castle in Germany? This Romanesque castle is the perfect place to get lost in romance and will really make your wedding one to remember.

No matter where you choose to host your wedding day, be sure to plan ahead of time and ask plenty of questions about the suitability of the venue for your wedding party size and specific requirements. Also double check to see if your friends and family are able to attend- while a foreign wedding destination is glamorous, not having your nearest and dearest by your side may help to finalise the decision to get wed at home but honeymoon elsewhere in Europe instead!
