For the last blog in our pre-wedding photoshoot location series, we are travelling a little further to Europe. For those who want a mixture of culture, nature and city in their pre-wedding photos, Europe is the place to go. We recommend that you visit more than one country so that you capture a wide variety of photos. Here are our top 10 pre-wedding photoshoot locations in Europe!
Recreate a Mama Mia style pre-wedding photoshoot at this stunning and romantic location. The white and blue buildings lined along the coast create a breathtaking backdrop for your pre-wedding photos. In addition, if you want to take an idyllic beach photo, we recommend heading to one of the many beach clubs in Santorini.
Bath, United Kingdom
If you’re a Bridgerton fan, then you definitely need to head to Bath (about 2hrs from London) for your pre-wedding photos. Capture photos in front of the royal crescent, cathedral and roman baths for a quintessentially British pre-wedding photoshoot. However, you may need to pack an umbrella as the weather can be a little hit or miss depending on the month!
Amalfi coast, Italy
For couples wanting a mediterranean inspired pre-wedding photoshoot, head to the Amalfi Coast in Italy. The most popular areas are Capri, Positano and Sorrento. If you want a taste all of these areas, you can easily travel from one to another by boat. We particularly love Sorrento, known as the town of lemons, due to its vibrant and lively atmosphere.
Marrakesh offers a completely different and surreal experience from the rest of the places listed here. The spice markets and traditional rhiads will add colour and excitement to your pre-wedding photos.
Hvar is a popular town amongst celebrities due to its crystal clear waters, beautiful scenery and amazing views. Even the cobbled streets would make for a stunning pre-wedding photo.
We included Provence in our list mainly due to the breathtaking lavender fields. If you choose your dress correctly, the sea of purple will be super complimentary. In addition, we suggest visiting a traditional french chateau for your pre-wedding photos to recreate a magical fairytale ending.
Lake Como, Italy
Lake Como is well known for its incredible views and beautiful architecture. Taking a boat ride along the lake is a great way to capture the scenery along Lake Como. This location will definitely make your pre-wedding photoshoot stand out from the crowd.
Alternatively, for a less sunny destination you could head to Finland for a winter wonderland experience. This destination would be ideal if you were having a winter wedding. If you’re willing to brave the cold temperatures in the evening, you could even capture a pre-wedding photo under the northern lights.
Porto is a beautiful city in Portugal, known for its amazing architecture and vineyards. The pop of colour from the streets will help make your pre-wedding photos portray a Mediterranean atmosphere.
Sevilla is the best location is Spain for a wide variety of photoshoot backgrounds. We highly recommend heading to these two popular sites; Las Setas and Plaza de España. Whilst they are popular destinations with tourists, their structure and intricate detailing is the reason why you need include this in your pre-wedding photoshoot.
