Best of series Slovenian Castle Wedding Venues

A castle wedding anyone? Sounds far-fetched or so you thought. It sounds too good to be true, but a destination wedding in Slovenia can mean choosing between its many castles, for the fairytale castle wedding that you never even thought to dream of. With Italy, Croatia, Austria, and Hungary on its borders, Slovenia is a blend of the best bits of all four top international wedding destinations. Offering up more jaw-dropping moments than you ever imagined, Slovenia is arguably the best European destination wedding location around. Here’s a quick round-up of your top options for a castle wedding in Slovenia:

Why choose Slovenia for your destination wedding location?

Slovenia is spectacular. It’s that simple. If you want pretty little towns, historic architecture and sweet little churches, picturesque alps, a magical lake, tons of water sports, hikes, horse-riding and cycling, lush green hillsides, dazzling horses, spectacular wedding venues and gorgeous fresh food – then Slovenia is it.

Then there are the castles.

Top Slovenian castle wedding venues

  • Bled Castle: With Lake Bled below and the Julian Alps in view, sixteenth century Bled Castle is simply sublime. Part of the exquisite Brdo Estate, Bled Castle is a hilltop castle straight from the pages of any fairy tale. Romantic is an understatement, when it comes to this majestic venue. With the incredible Brdo Park beside, for all of your spectacular wedding photography, as well as Vila Bled beyond, this an astounding venue for your wedding, that won’t disappoint.
  • Ljubljana Castle: This gorgeous, ornate eleventh century castle, looks down onto the magnificent capital city of Ljubljana, as well as across to the Kamnik-Savinja Alps and Krim Mountain. Situated high up on Castle Hill, with its own chapel and viewing terrace, it is one of Slovenia’s most treasured landmarks and a sought-after wedding location. Perfectly positioned for a spell-binding wedding with all the benefits of such a central location, this a superb choice for a castle wedding venue. 
  • Otočec Castle: As if the castle setting was not enough, Otočec Castle lets you take things up another notch, as a castle in the middle of the River Krka. This grand medieval water castle is the only water castle in Slovenia. Imagine sweet river wildlife, bridges, towers and forests beyond. All within a luxurious hotel complex. Divine. Clearly, the  glamorous choice that will blow your mind (and all your guests’ too).
  • Predjama Castle: If you like Game of Thrones, you’ll like this one. Nestled into the side of a cliff, with its own bat cave by its side, Predjama Castle looks like a castle from a film set. This unique Gothic castle venue features stunning period architecture, a lattice of underground tunnels and its own cave. With legends attached to its history, this unusual castle is astounding – probably unlike any other wedding venue you, or your guests will have seen before.
  • Gredič Castle: This sweet little castle, is wonderfully unique. If you are a wine connoisseur, then this may be the one for you. Located in the heart of Slovenia’s Napa Valley, Goriska Brda, Gredič Castle looks outs onto a gorgeous, lush hillside landscape that produces fantastic wine. Close to the border of Italy, Gredič is a sixteenth castle that provides an unforgettable setting for a more intimate wedding venue in a luxe hotel resort in the hills.

With such a range of dazzling landscapes and unique, grand castle wedding venues to choose from, it goes without saying that the wedding photography for your destination wedding, is going to be out-of-this world.

The magic of Lake Bled wedding photography

Despite all of the magnificence of Slovenia’s castle wedding venues, it is impossible to talk about Slovenia, without mentioning Lake Bled. To visit Slovenia without taking a trip to Lake Bled would be an opportunity missed. What’s so special about Lake Bled?

Slovenia’s Lake Como and then some, Lake Bled is a spectacular lakeside resort in the chocolate-box pretty town of Bled. In the midst of the Julian Alps and Bled Castle, Lake Bled is so stunning that it almost seems unreal. Take a gondola-style trip across the lake to the enchanting isle in the middle, enjoy the many water sports, take a hike, horse-ride or cycle into the mountains or relax and soak up the views riverside. Then there are the wedding venues. …more about Lake Bled wedding venues
