INSPO // Destination Weddings
This month I moved to Grenoble, France for the next year & this exciting move along with some pretty serious Instagram envy of endless Summer trips across Europe, oh & this wedding, I have curated some of the most beautiful wedding venues perfect for a destination wedding.
1. LA Badia di Orvieto - Italy
La Badia di Orvieto is beyond a dream and one of the most beautiful wedding venues we have comes across. Set in Italy, the unique Benedictine Abbey from 1100 has been loving restored and is now a perfect wedding ceremony and reception venue.
2. Igreja Da Sao Vicente de Fora
There are so many things to love about this Lisbon, Portugal wedding venue. Igreja Da Sao Vicente De Fora features breathtaking views and picture perfect setting from the roof top to the garden. We fell in love with this wedding venue for its iconic blue tiles and history.
3. Rocabella Hotel
On the island of Santorini, every turn is a perfect photographic opportunity.
The Rocabella Hotel feels like it is set on the top of the world, looking out at the Aegean Sea and set against a crisp white backdrop and clear blue skies.
4. Rippon Hall, Wanaka, New Zealand
It didn't take the recent wedding of Nicole Warne to tell us that Wanaka, in the south island of New Zealand was a special place. Rippon Hall sits atop Rippon Hill and it's natural amphitheatre is the perfect picturesque setting for a wedding ceremony with views of Lake Wanaka and the Souther Alps.

5. MALIBU ROCKY OAKS ESTATE VINEYARD - CALIFORNIA, USA
This 37-acre plot private vineyard has the most magical 360-degree views of the Santa Monica Mountains and rolling hillsides. Set your wedding ceremony on the heli-pad as the sun sets for the most stunning photographs you can imagine.
6. Masseria Potenti, Puglia ITALY
Masseria Potenti doubles as a wedding ceremony and reception location as well as accommodation for you and your guests, making it the perfect venue for a wedding weekend event. With multiple ceremonth locations for the orangery decked with white muslin or under the Agavi Portico dappled with sunlight, or in the cooler weather the Androna Porch with its Moorish influence makes a perfect setting. Aperitivo can be served pool side and also where you can enjoy your wedding meal.
