Real Wedding – Cliffside Santorini Wedding Ceremony

You Mean The World To Me

Anastasia & Ivan   ♥    Santorini, Greece

Photographer:   Anna Roussos


Anastasia and Ivan tied the knot on top of the famous Caledra cliffs with the deep blue Aegean Sea as the sparkling backdrop to their Santorini wedding ceremony.


Whitewashed villas, blue-domed churches and a maze of cobbled streets cling to the cliff face of Thira and with year-round sunshine this destination wedding location is fit for a Greek goddess. And Anastasia looks every bit the part positively glowing in her stunning gown. This is one dreamy destination day, radiating with more romance than even Aphrodite could handle and captured to perfection as always by the talented Anna Roussos.

Marissa & Phil   ♥   Tuscany, Italy

Photographer:   Jessica Burke


Try and picture the most-dreamy Italian wedding in Tuscany that you can imagine…

You will probably envisage an intimate, atmospheric ceremony held within a tiny old chapel in a traditional Italian village, followed by a fairytale castle wedding reception overlooking the rolling Tuscan countryside, the warm summer sun setting behind the vineyards and the hills sitting in the distance whilst you and your guests sip champagne and cocktails on the impressive outdoor terrace. Sounds like destination wedding heaven doesn’t it?!


Well that’s exactly the delightful kind of day that today’s bride and groom enjoyed. Marissa and Phil had a dreamy castle wedding in Italy. They held their wedding reception within a restored 9th century castle in Tuscany, set high upon the Chianti hills, watching over the medieval village and the river beyond. Their tremendously talented wedding planner – Weddings In Italy – perfectly complimented the location with a theme that focussed on natural beauty, delicate details and pretty pale pinks, whilst the ambience of the day was captured faultlessly by the gifted, fine art photographer Jessica Burke.

So, if you’re looking for information on how to get married in Hungary, look no further! This destination wedding guide to getting married in Hungary has all the details you need…



Hungarian Weddings:

Couples who choose Hungary as their wedding country all have on thing in common: they want to show-off Hungary to their wedding guests!

One of the most popular places and wedding styles to have is a luxury wedding in the beautiful, bustling city of Budapest. For this, couples choose a five-star downtown hotel as their wedding venue, with classic and modern styles to choose from, most of which overlook the darling Danube.

The other well-liked choice is to have an authentic Hungarian countryside wedding. Here you can find thatched roofed buildings with red geraniums in the windows, incredible horse-shows (the so-called csárda and tanya – Hungarian ranches – are typical on the Great Plain) and lots of delicious Hungarian food.


The always-popular small castles are also loved by couples planning their nuptials in Hungary, but our new highlighted wedding venue ‘Wedding Garden Budapest’ has gone to the top of the wedding trend list!

Wedding ceremonies


Civil wedding ceremony

In Hungary the legally binding wedding is the civil wedding. Foreign citizens can get legally married in Hungary, however bureaucracy and the time and effort it takes for the required paperwork often deters couples coming from abroad.


Therefore, most couples looking to have their destination wedding in Hungary have the legal civil ceremony at home first to complete the necessary paperwork and then they treat their ceremony in Hungary as their actual wedding day.


Symbolic wedding ceremony

The symbolic wedding ceremony has a similar feeling to a civil ceremony and is held by a ceremony keeper, however as previously mentioned this is not legally binding. It is very popular due to the impracticalities of being able to meet the requirements of an official civil marriage.


A symbolic wedding ceremony can be customized as per your wishes and such kind of wedding ceremonies can take place almost anywhere and anytime.

Ciara & Cormac   ♥   Tipperary, Ireland

Photographer:   Weddings By Kara


Ciara and Cormac wanted a traditional day and so they held their nuptials in a classically beautiful Catholic Church in County Tipperary, Ireland before enjoying their reception with their nearest and dearest at Kilshane House, an elegant regency house set within 320 acres of private parkland and boasting a stunning Victorian Conservatory built in 1860.


Ciara added a modern edge to their traditional day with her boho bride styling, whilst contemporary curtains of twinkling fairy lights and a sweet cupcake tower decorated the decadent venue.








Ciara says:

“The proposal? It was my birthday and we were living in Chicago at the time so Cormac planned a night away in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin to celebrate. We went for dinner and afterwards back at the hotel, he asked me to check the meal receipt to see was everything right…. he had written it on the receipt!”
