Whilst some couples dream of getting married in their local church, others want to venture further afield, making their big day even more special.

Destination weddings are the perfect way to do just that, allowing couples to escape to the sunshine and enjoy an extended stay with their guests, creating memories in a place they can return to time and time again.

Spain is a fantastic destination for any couple who are looking to get married abroad. The transport links mean that guests can fly in from all over the world, whilst the good weather, long swathes of sandy beaches and historic monuments guarantee beautiful wedding photos. Plus, with so much to do and see, newlyweds won’t be short on spots to take their honeymoon after the big day.

In this post, we explain why the stunning region of Valencia should be on your destination wedding shortlist.

Delicious food

The wedding breakfast is an important part of any nuptials – but for foodie couples, it holds an extra-special importance. Your first meal as a married couple will be one you remember forever, and it signals a chance to relax from the formalities of the day and get the party started. Luckily, you’ll be spoilt for choice in Valencia, which is recognised as a hotspot of Mediterranean cuisine.

Opt for steaming dishes of paella (which originated from here), mouthwateringly fresh seafood, refreshing gazpacho, crowd-pleasing coques and more. Valencia is famed for having a huge fruit and vegetable industry too, thanks to the surrounding farmland, so you can be sure that any vegan and vegetarian guests will also be taken care of. Plus, the food will be incredibly fresh.

A far cry from formal, awkward dinners, the hearty Valencian cuisine will encourage everyone to relax and socialise, creating a happy atmosphere for your celebrations.

Sustainability credentials

It might not be something you’ve considered, but your wedding does have a significant impact on the planet, especially if you’re travelling to your destination by plane. From your transport to the clothes you wear, you’ll be creating a carbon footprint, just as you do in everyday life.

Fortunately, once you get here, you can relax knowing that you’re in a place that’s been certified as a European Green Capital for 2024. The city of Valencia boasts almost five million square metres of green space, including parks, gardens and leisure facilities. It’s easy to walk and cycle here, so whilst you might not want to travel to your ceremony by bike, you can utilise this sustainable transport during the lead up and on your honeymoon adventures.

Lively entertainment

Once you’re officially married, you’ve eaten your way through a table of scrumptious food, and the plates have been cleared away, it’s time to get the party started. Whether you want the intimate atmosphere that a guitarist can create, or the lively fire of traditional flamenco dancers, Valencia has it all.

Make sure to reach out to a local wedding planner or events coordinator who can ensure you have a truly authentic, wonderful entertainment experience on your wedding day. That way, all you have to do is turn up and celebrate.

Valencia truly is a wonderful place to get married and create memories with your loved ones. Whether your wedding party is 10 guests or 100, you’ll find a warm welcome.
