England | Europe
When you think of elegance and tradition, of pomp and ceremony, a England surely comes to mind. With such romantic images to choose from - medieval castles to English cottage gardens - it is no wonder that a destination wedding in England is a very popular choice.
For American couples, England holds the allure of an international destination with the convenience of a common language. There are countless wedding location possibilities in a country known for its parks, stunning gardens, stately homes, castles, and village inns. Choose from the medieval villages of the Cotswalds, the natural beauty of the Lake District, the charming Isle of Wight, the ancient spa city of Bath, Stonehenge's majestic beauty, or the historic regions of Canterbury, Dover, or Hastings.
British wedding celebrations can be infused with such traditional elements as chimney sweeps and horseshoes (for good luck), and a "toastmaster" acting as the master of ceremonies at your reception.
Couples looking to be legally married in England must plan to spend at least a month in the country beforehand in order to file necessary documents.
