I got married in a presbyterian church- so it is a very simple church, but I thought it was just stunning.

I’m so envious of those of you who are marrying in gorgeous cathedrals! WOW!!  It was my dream, but we decided on having a (sort of) destination wedding in the countryside/mountains so it’s just not happening.

We are getting married in a small medieval stone church. As far from cathedral as it gets, but charming in its own way, I think.

I think it’s gorgeous! I love chapels. If it weren’t so difficult to reach, I would have got married here:

A different view of it in winter — just because it’s almost Christmas:

It’s small, and high up in the mountains, and I would have loved it. I don’t have a connection to the parish though which would have made it difficult. I think your chapel is absolutely lovely! You have no reason to be envious. May I ask where the chapel is located?

PositiveThinking:  Thanks! I feel lucky that we were able to get married there. It was one of only two places where I wanted to get married, and the other place wasn’t possible because of logistics. It is a very pretty chapel, and was perfect for us because we had a small-ish wedding. There actually weren’t as many empty seats as it seems in our picture. Those are all empty because nearly all of DH’s relatives were late for the ceremony —  ha, ha! I still love the chapel and grounds and have wonderful memories of our wedding there. It was a pretty perfect day.

To all the Bees who have posted in this thread so far: Wowza!! Every venue is incredible and beautiful, both in appearance and in the special meaning and memories they hold for you guys. I have enjoyed coming back to this thread and reading through all of the responses.

BurlapnLace:  Thanks! I feel really fortunate that we were able to marry there. It’s one of my favorite places in our previous hometown. Plus, it was a great value as a venue because people could be there for the ceremony and then just walk a little ways down a lovely garden path to the reception. Kind of like getting two venues for the price of one — LOL.

My first choice would have been to marry in my childhood church. But that wasn’t possible because of logistics. It’s in a very small town, and there was no where to host the reception without having to ask guests to get in their cars and drive 30-60 miles. So this worked out much better.

Our wedding day was really lovely. It was October in S. Texas, so the weather can be a bit unpredictable. But it wasn’t too hot or too cold, so our outdoor reception went off without a hitch. That night, though, it started raining — hard. It rained for about the next five or six days, and the whole venue was completely flooded by the next weekend. We got so, so, soooo lucky. O.O

(EDIT TO ADD: Sorry for the double comment, everyone! I couldn’t get everyone tagged into one post. *user fail* >.O)

It looked like the lack of availability worked out better for you in the long run. 

I am so envious of the beautiful cathedrals on this thread.

When we met and were dating my fiancee and I were going to separate churches. His church is fairly new and they do their services at a theatre that they rent out on the weekend. We want his pastor to marry us. My childhood church is beautiful, however, if you want to get married there only the pastors at that church can marry you. The chapel we picked is very close to my house and it was the first place I thought of. It is not affiliated with any religious organization and its only used for weddings, baptisms, bar mitzvahs, and other things like that. We loved it because not only is it beautiful on the inside and outside, but also because the price is great and they basically let us do whatever we want! 

 

We are not the couple in the picure!

Persephone:  It’s in the Norwegian countryside! (we live in Oslo) 

I kind of want to change to a stave church in the area, but it’s a little too far away from the venue. I’m not sure how much I’m willing to make my guests drive, but I like the way it looks.

I got married at St Coloman in Schwangau in Upper Bavaria. It’s a beautiful baroque church, and as it is my mother’s childhood parish and the church where I was baptised as a baby, I have a very special and personal connection.

However, the second set of pictures is where I would have loved to get married. It’s called Maria Gern near Berchtesgaden. It’s a pilgrimage chapel in the mountains. There is very limited parking, and you have to walk uphill which would have been a problem for some elderly members of the family. My UK grandma was already in her 80s and not that steady on her feet anymore. I have no reason to gripe though as I had a beautiful wedding in a lovely church.
