Searching for your wedding venue can feel like an endless task. Some venues seem perfect but won’t let you use the supplier you want, others are beautiful but have a teeny tiny guest capacity (it’s not your fault you’re so popular!) and some, some just don’t feel like the one. But have you considered extending your search a little further, maybe to the other side of the world? We’ve made a hitched.ie edit of the most amazing places in the world to get married, from a leafy treehouse to a mountain lodge. Prepare yourself for some amazing views, they might not be what you originally had in mind, but they could just inspire you to look a little further afield!
Langton House is a boutique hotel nestled within the historical, winding streets of Dublin’s city. At every turn this beautiful hotel has something unique to offer, from ornate décor to a dramatic theatre.
Despite residing in a modern city, what makes this wedding venue truly special is the old worldly touches, starting with the magnificent Langtons Ballroom. Stare upwards and you’ll see 20 feet stretching endlessly towards the sky creating a more than luxurious detailed ceiling. Hand painted silk wallpaper lines the walls but just wait until you see The Garden Room. Especially designed by Gild & Cage, The Garden Room holds an other-worldy charm. Green samplings weave their way around light fixtures and tumble from the ceiling in a magical display that feels half The Secret Garden and half vintage chic. To top it all off, Langton House can also offer you exclusive use of its Set Stage complete with Moulin Rouge red furnishings and open plan two floor entertainment area! This venue really does take you on a journey through different eras and worlds, but which one will you choose? The choice is yours!
If you go down to the woods today... you’re sure to find an amazing wedding venue — Treehouse Point! Tucked in the forest beside the Raging River in Washington, US, is an enchanting treehouse that will exceed all of your childhood dreams. You can get married amongst the trees, streams and mountains in this gorgeously leafy grotto with up to 80 of your loved ones. A boho brides dream, this venue lends itself to a rustic wedding theme and quirky touches. If you’re a couple that is looking for the unique factor and above all to have some fun, this could be the place for you.
