Croatian Destination Weddings

Destination weddings are more and more popular option for weddings, and it is already well-known that Croatia offers plenty of gorgeous locations on which many of the local and tourist couples decide to exchange their vows and celebrate marriage. Magical Istria and Dalmatia offer some of the most popular and beautiful wedding destinations, not only in Croatia but in the world. Croatia is a treasury filled with fairytale locations, from Adriatic Sea, the hills of Zagorje, the mountains of Gorski Kotar and Lika, to Slavonia plains. Destination weddings emphasize the special place and mood which will make your wedding day more beautiful, so it is normal that couples choose them. 

With the occurrence of the destination weddings it is more common that individual photographers are declaring themselves as destination wedding photographers. It can be demanding to be a destination wedding photographer, but the photographers simply enjoy these kind of weddings because if the location is beautiful and special, it gives a memorable aesthetic view of the photography.

Photogenic locations are usually the ones in the nature and outdoor. Even though our Adriatic Sea is gorgeous and irreplaceable, you don’t have to necessarily choose the wedding destination near the sea for the scenes to be perfect. Sometimes an old stone house or vineyard hills can be a very interesting motif for photography. The palette of impressive locations in Croatia is really wide, so we will select our favourite and most photogenic places which should definitely be taken into account when choosing the perfect destination.
