Quebec City, Canada

If getting married in the sunshine is not your thing, why not go for a destination that’s on the cooler side. The predominantly French-speaking Quebec City is one of North America’s oldest settlements. From its 17th century houses to its quaint cobbled streets, it’s the perfect place to hold a wedding. With so much heritage, culture, and creativity, it’s hard not to be drawn to this incredible city. But what really sets this destination apart is the Hotel de Glace. Made from snow and ice and complete with it’s own chapel, it’s the ideal setting for a winter wonderland wedding day. So revert from the thousands of beach weddings many couples have and go for something truly out of the box.

Walt Disney World, Florida

For couples who are truly young at heart, what better place to get married than Disney World in Florida. Not many people realize that the Walt Disney company can help you plan and organize your wedding day.
