If you always dreamed of a destination wedding but weren’t able to have one, a destination vow renewal is just as romantic and even less stressful! The beauty of vow renewals is that there does not necessarily need to be a proper ceremony or even a reception. The way you want to celebrate is completely up to you, just leave it in our hands. Use it as the perfect opportunity to tick Barcelona off your bucket list. What better time to see an amazing city and remind each other just how in love you are?
No matter what kind of ceremony you have envisioned, there is something to cater to your tastes in beautiful Barcelona. World Heritage sites and architectural marvels serve as the ideal backdrop for your ceremony. If you prefer an outdoor ceremony there are several parks and a beautiful beach to top it off.
Since we are based in Barcelona, we can help you with any and all of your destination vow renewal needs. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us and we can assist you in planning even the most minute details.
The Great Outdoors
For a destination vow renewal ceremony, the beach is the obvious option – it’s remarkably beautiful and will guarantee stunning photos. The location is ideal too. The beac is a short walk from the city center – meaning you can whisk yourselves off to a nice dinner right after you exchange vows. If you’re not looking to get your feet sandy or the weather doesn’t cooperate, fret not. There are also several charming restaurants scattered along the boardwalk. We can help you choose the right one and arrange everything from the ceremony to the after-party.
If you are looking for a dramatic and impressive setting, Gaudí’s Parc Güell is the place for you. Mosaic tiles with views overlooking the whole city and plenty of greenery.
Another beautiful outdoor option is the Laberint Park, not only for its whimsical labyrinth but also for the extravagant fountains, flowers, and forest setting that will make you feel like you are miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The ideal place to make you feel young and in love again.
Barcelona is full of dazzling hotels that are adapted to intimate functions such as vow renewals. With a wide range of facilities and helpful multi-lingual staff, hosting a reaffirmation ceremony becomes a totally stress-free affair. A hotel is a great option because you can have the ceremony, reception, dinner and drinks all at the same place. Once the celebration is over, you can whisk yourselves off to your room. If you are looking to include friends or family in your celebration, we can help you arrange to have your rooms grouped together. Some of our favorites are the beachside Hotel Arts, the grandiose El Palace, or the luxurious Cotton House Hotel.
Barcelona’s long and decadent history means there are also several private villas scattered around the city. These can accommodate friends and family and afford you a level of privacy that hotels do not. Reaffirming your love at a villa guarantees intimacy and allows your loved ones to join in on your destination renewal. One of our top choices is the Villa Modernista, a centrally located villa complete with 4 bedrooms and a swimming pool.

Why your destination wedding in Barcelona will be an unforgettable experience for you and the love of your life:
Reason #1: Breathtaking beauty all around you
An engaged couple wants nothing more than to create a day to remember for the rest of their lives.
As brides, we want to be surrounded by everything that brings out the magic in us and surely Barcelona has this on steroids.
This is a city that contains thousands of years in history and culture. Beauty, enchantment, and activities that create lasting memories are what Barcelona holds in store for you.
Whether you are taking a romantic stroll around the city or getting a little tan before your big day on some of the well-manicured beaches here, each moment promises to imbue you with timeless beauty and lasting impressions.
Reason #2: Beautiful natural landscapes form the canvas for your magical day
Spain, in general, offers a variety of natural landscapes that seems like a page in a fairy tale book.
Barcelona is often referred to as the crown of the Mediterranean and with good reason.
With so many intimate and beautiful backdrops to choose from whether we organize a setting on a beautiful Yatch or a bibliotheca on the Tibidado Hill you will have a wide variety of dreamy options to choose from for your celebration.
Reason #3: Accessibility
We all know there are several dreamy and intimate spots in the world that would be amazing for a destination wedding.
I recently visited little Island in Africa commonly referred to as a hidden Jewel adjacent to the Kenyan coastline that had miles upon miles of gorgeous white sandy beaches.
There are many such jewels all over the world that would be perfect for an intimate wedding but accessing some of these Islands is a major headache.
That’s the part most people forget to mention when pitching you a package.
Luckily, this wouldn’t be a problem for you and your guests when you come to Barcelona.
There are three airports that are serviced by many airlines and accommodation choices are practically endless. Thus making your Barcelona experience enjoyable, hassle free and quite affordable for you and your guests.
Reason#4: Perfect weather for your perfect day regardless of the month
Barcelona is one of the most visited cities in Europe. Frankly it’s also one of the most preferred cities in the Southern Europe.
Unlike most of Europe where weather patterns can be very extreme, this city maintains a mild climate throughout the year.
That means you don’t have to experience the anxiety and frustration we know most brides have just before the wedding.
It also means you have the flexibility of choosing the time that best works for you because here in Barcelona, the weather is always perfect for love and romance.
Reason #5: The world famed Food and Drink variety
Choosing to have your destination wedding on the Mediterranean always guarantees you and your guest will be in for a gastronomical treat.
Food and wine are taken very seriously in Barcelona. There’s such a high-quality production of delicious vegetables, fruit, wine, and cava in this region it’s almost ridiculous. Perhaps this might be one of the reasons the city is home to various Michelin star chefs.
The seafood selection is amazing and oh so fresh! Whether you are a foodie or not, Catalan cuisine is famed for using excellent, local raw ingredients and we will make sure you experience the best that Barcelona has to offer.
Our highly trained team will ensure you design a top quality food and beverage menu that aligns with your budget and preference.
Reason #6: A shopper’s paradise
Do you love shopping or just need to find that last minute gift for your loved one? Barcelona has plenty of choices.
Whether you visit the chic Paseo de Gràcia or the shops in El Born area, spoiling your loved one will come easy.
Reason #7: The perfect wedding and honeymoon packaged into one
It’s simply impossible not to be charmed by the fact that you can have both the beach experience and the wildly diverse city experience that Barcelona has to offer.
For most couples, the wedding and the honeymoon have to be treated as separate things. In Barcelona, going from wedding mode into romantic honeymoon phase will be a breeze. And we can help align them perfectly with as much or little detail as you like.
From romantic air balloon trips, wine tasting tours to romantic fine dining beach restaurants. Whatever you can imagine as the perfect experience, we can bring to life effortlessly in Barcelona.
Reason #8: Great music and party scene
A wedding is not a wedding without awesome music. Music is hugely important both to set the right ambience for romance as well as to entertain the guests and keep people entertained and grooving.
In Barcelona, regardless of your guest lists and budget, you can have an epic party.
There are many talented artists and bands covering music genres from Rock & Roll, American classics, Latin American salsa and of course the famous classical Spanish guitar and flamenco performance.
Prices are extremely competitive so we are able to create for you something high quality at an affordable cost.
Reason #9: Your creativity, Passion, and Uniqueness can be fully expressed during your special day and throughout your stay in Spain
Barcelona is one of the world’s best culture hubs packed full of artists, architectural masterpieces, and as we said before amazing food.
If creativity is something you value and you wish to infuse that into your special day, a destination wedding in Barcelona will tick all the boxes.
Because there is so much variety and creative people, the cost of creating something unique that is customized to your specific taste by some of the most skilled specialists will truly surprise you.
Reason #10: Secrets waiting to be discovered
Choosing to have your destination wedding in Barcelona gives you the chance to also enjoy a most romantic and diverse honeymoon. It can be intimate and secluded or outgoing and social. Ideally, you can have a taste of both.
We can take off the guesswork and time-consuming efforts that goes into knowing the romantic spots, local attractions, and couples activities to engage in far beyond the scope of the wedding planning.
Let the narrow streets of Catalan, which are lively by day and magical by night, give you memories that last a lifetime.
From romantic couples’ sailing to wine tasting experiences or day trips to the Montserrat, there are secrets waiting to be discovered by you and your loved one during your stay.
One thing is for sure, running out of special things to do and explore will never be a problem in Barcelona.
Having your destination wedding in Barcelona not only guarantees an epic experience, it also promises to be one of the most unforgettable experiences of your new life with your partner.
This city is one of the oldest in the world dating back to about 2,000 years. I have no doubt, some of that lasting glory and enchantment will rub off on you as the new chapter of your happily ever after story begins.
And I am here to help make that happen.
Have you been obsessed with the idea of a dreamy, destination wedding? Something magical that’s also adventurous?
Whether it’s a newly married friend that inspired your vision, or a dreamy scene from your favorite Romance novel, being newly-engaged, you may be wondering, “Now how do I make that perfect balance of romance, luxury, and adventure a reality for our special day?”
Perhaps this will sound familiar to you…
That moment in time where the world came to a standstill as it finally dawned on you – the love of your life had finally popped the big question! More importantly, you said yes!
That magical memory is yours to keep forever with all the details; funny mishaps and uncensored scenes that took place which none of us really need to know about. Wink. Wink.
What matters is that you had your perfect moment in time. And you made that decision to spend the rest of your days with your soul mate.
Falling in love, getting engaged and making your special day come alive is very exciting for the newly engaged couples. But there are certain details and tough decisions that follow which often create a sense of overwhelm, confusion and at times even frustration for both you and your spouse to be.
To help with that, let me share some of the experience and expertise I’ve acquired in recent years. This is especially useful if you want to create something epic that will be remembered for a really long time.
First things first: Clarity on what a perfect wedding looks and feels like for you.
You might say you desire a dreamy destination wedding, but how much clarity do you have on what this looks like?
Lots of engaged couples are still conflicted because on the one hand, they don’t want a traditional ceremony but on the other hand, they haven’t set the right expectations.
So let’s gain a little clarity on some of the main differences that will take place now that you are choosing a dreamy destination wedding.
Ditching traditions and designing your wedding, your way:
A traditional wedding allows you to first and foremost have every single person you would wish to celebrate with you present. That high energy and enthusiasm make it extra special indeed regardless of the venue.
And of course, let’s not forget the abundance of gifts you would receive since everyone will be showing up.
These little pleasures will most likely not take place if you choose to have an exotic destination wedding in a far off place like Spain. And if you aren’t planning a luxury destination wedding in the crown of the Mediterranean sea, I don’t know what you’re waiting for!
Nothing could combine adventure, luxury, and romance better than a destination wedding in Barcelona.
I know what you must be thinking. If having a non-traditional wedding takes away the joy of having lots of gifts and all the friends and family we desire, what would be the point of having one?
Enter a few secrets that I’m sure will blow your mind.
- A luxurious dreamy wedding is far more plausible and cost-effective when you plan it as a destination wedding.
- It’s a perfect way to encourage some relax time and travel experience for your guests. I mean you get to pick and choose only those you love spending time with.
- It’s also the perfect way for you to go all out in expressing both you and your partner’s sense of adventures, creativity and authentic tastes in life.
In other words, it can be as simple and laid back as you like with all kinds of themes attached to the special day and no one would find that unusual. It basically gives you the freedom to be truly yourself.
- The memories of having this kind of a wedding are certainly beyond social norm therefore, you are probably going to treasure them for a very long time. And truth be told, so will the guests that attend it.
- Creating a fairytale-like an event will be easy and it takes off most of the stress and pressure of planning every detail that a normal weeding often entails.
- A dreamy wedding destination means it will definitely tick all the boxes when it comes to romance, exoticness, adventure, and newness of experience, which in my opinion makes most couples less occupied with little trivial problems such as the perfect table napkin.
So how can you actually ensure that your current wedding plans will produce that dreamy destination wedding that becomes the adventure of a lifetime?
First: Take some time to communicate with your “almost significant other” to make sure you agree on the elements that need to come together to form that perfect blend of the magic and adventure you both seek.
Good communication has to start now if you want this marriage to last a lifetime. This is, after all, a special day for both of you.
The only thing that matters at the end of the day is that you both get to feel and experience that specialness.
Second: Carefully choose a destination that can effortlessly combine the wedding and honeymoon effect without getting boring.
By this I mean, let it be a location that can offer contrast for you. As an example, one of the reasons I love organizing destination weddings in Barcelona is because it’s one of the few cities in Europe that has near perfect weather all year long.
It also has beach, city and wild nature all within reach. So you can have a completely different experience from one day to the next thereby satisfying diverse preferences simultaneously.
Creating your unforgettable ceremony and honeymoon becomes effortless when you start qualifying locations through the filters that best represent the sense of adventure both you and the love of your life desire to experience.
Third: Create an element of surprise!
Yes, planning to exact details is wonderful and having everything laid out perfectly from start to finish makes for a more stress-free experience.
But where possible, infuse some surprising element that corresponds with your ideas of adventure. It can be during the wedding ceremony or honeymoon.
Decide on something exciting that’s out of your comfort zone to experience together.
After all, you are both sharing the promise that you will walk through the journey of life together. Why not start infusing adventure into this journey?
Depending on the chosen location it could be something wild in nature, deep in the sea or behind closed doors.
I invite your imagination to take charge now to see what ideas you could come up with and then let your wedding planner help make it perfect.
Lastly, don’t try to have the perfect day arranged by unprofessional inexperienced people who don’t specialize in the chosen destination.
I’ve heard lots of horror stories lately where a couple organizes an Italian destination wedding through a so-called wedding planner living in California.
There’s nothing wrong with a wedding planner in your country, but I recommend doing a little research and finding a professional that lives and has access to a top-notch team in your desired destination. With just a little due diligence you will be able to find some amazing international organizers who specialize in all kinds of destination weddings.
If budget is an issue for you, find a good deal. And thanks to the Internet, it is possible to find something amazing and affordable locally run by gifted experts.
This is one of the reasons I decided to set my base here in Barcelona. After living in some of the most romantic cities in the world like Paris, and working in some amazing places across Europe, I knew the only way I would serve my clients best and help them customize that magical dreamy effect is by physically mastering the lay of the land and hand picking my team.
That way, I can bet my reputation and customer satisfaction on my products and services. Whether we are arranging your special day in a romantic spot here in the city or organizing your wine tasting tour – every detail is exceptional and professional because we are operating organically.
You can’t always rely on pictures online. You need professionals on the grounds that understand exactly what you’re looking for.
Getting in touch with and surrounding yourself with experts at planning intimate, luxurious exotic destination weddings will guarantee each moment is as dreamy as you’ve always wanted.
While no one can argue with the beauty of sticking to a traditional wedding ceremony, if you feel that you and the love of your life are more interested in creating your own traditions, a dreamy wedding destination could very well be the best way to kick start your new future.
Whether you choose to go for a destination wedding or not, may you create magical moments that last a lifetime. And remember to enjoy your special day.
