Luxury Lake Bled Weddings

Imagine the world-famous settings of medieval Bled Castle or Bled Island, with its 15th century church at its centre, as the ultimate backdrop to your luxury Lake Bled wedding.

For luxury Lake Bled weddings, a rich choice of elegant, historic white structures – luxury hotels, Italian-style villas, castles and more – play host to an incredible scene. Jewel-blue Lake Bled is encircled by a lush green landscape of beautiful forests, parks and alpine valleys. Each is dotted with pretty wildflowers and bordered by open blue skies etched with the snow-capped peaks of the Julian Alps.

It’s hard to think of a more romantic setting for a luxury wedding than Lake Bled. Conjure a melody of the Italian Lakes, Provence, Tuscany, but this more intimate, unique, magical.

The lesser known location of Lake Bled in Slovenia offers a chance to have a luxury wedding in Europe that is truly memorable. Instead of the predictability of Italy or France, here in Lake Bled you have an opportunity to wed in a dazzling location, named one of Lonely Planet’s top 5 destinations in the world. Magazine Conde Nast Traveller curated a collection of their the best place in the world for a destination wedding.
