Destination wedding

Barcelona is one of Europe’s most romantic places! This Spanish city delights with vibrant energy, unique architecture, and a rich Catalonian culture and history. For a dreamy destination celebration, there are so many Barcelona wedding locations where you can celebrate in style, enjoying the city’s endless sunshine, famous Spanish wine and cuisine, and beautiful hospitality. 

The city itself offers many charming hotels and resorts, but there are also plenty of historic villas and castles just outside the city that are ideal for weddings with passion and romance — ideal for cinematographic photography. There are so many gorgeous options to select from, each with a unique history and vibe, and often with a rich history and backstory that adds such a fun dimension to your event. 

If you’re planning a destination wedding in Barcelona, you’ll love these beautiful locations, each selected because they offer something special that will elevate your wedding to an unforgettable Spanish fairytale!

1. Villa Catalina 

Villas Catalina is a private Spanish mansion, set across 400 acres and dating back to the 18th century. Offering rustic luxury, this venue overlooks the rolling hills of the Penedés vineyards and is surrounded by lots of tree shade and lush gardens, creating such a relaxing, breezy locale for your ceremony.

You’ll love the laid-back Spanish style here, complete with arched doorways, exposed ceilings, and an inviting swimming pool, plus a large courtyard space, set up with long communal tables for your alfresco reception dinner. This Barcelona wedding villa will also make the perfect backdrop for your stunning wedding photography, thanks to its natural tree archways and vibrant flowers, sunbleached stucco walls, and bright, airy design. 

A Villa Catalina celebration is ideal for destination weddings, as they can host up to 250 guests, but there’s also villa accommodation that can sleep up to 30. 

2. Castell Emporda

For grand, romantic Barcelona weddings like no other, Castell Emporda is such an unforgettable space. Dating all the way back to 1301, this historic stone castle is so charming and special, with a large olive garden ceremony space and plenty of exterior and interior spaces for you and your guests to enjoy. 

With a hilltop location, your Castell Emporda wedding photos will include those sweeping countryside views, capturing the dramatic, unique beauty of the Spanish countryside alongside the fun and romance of your celebrations. We can also make use of the lush green gardens, swimming pool, and understated decor to add some editorial flair to your image collection. 

This venue can handle up to 250 guests and also has 57 suites, so plenty of room for all of your friends and family to come along, share wine, and make memories together all weekend long! It’s seriously relaxing, with so many places to make the most of quality time with friends and family, enjoying amazing Spanish cuisine and wine. 

3. Casa del Mar

If the ocean is calling your name, Casa del Mar is one of the best Barcelona wedding venues. This family-owned Mediterranean villa, with its minimalist whitewashed walls and creatively designed spaces, showcases its epic sea views and feels so serene and inviting. 

A Casa del Mar wedding will have more of a modern style but still feels beautifully Spanish. There’s a breezy, relaxed courtyard space right by the sea for your outdoor ceremony, surrounded by nature and hosting up to 200 guests. Or, plan a low-key beach ceremony, shoes optional, as you share your first kiss with sand in your toes — so carefree and romantic!

There are also plenty of places to enjoy with your guests here, including an infinity pool, and open-air patios — think palm trees, clean design, and afternoon cocktails in the sunshine! 

Six suites, along with a sauna and gym, make it easy for your bridal party to spend the night here before your big day. Casa del Mar is near Sitges, a location about 40 minutes south of Barcelona. 

4. Masia Can Tosca

Dreaming of a rustic farmhouse wedding? For couples who love heritage properties, one of the top wedding venues in Barcelona is Masia Can Tosca. This 16th-century farmhouse, in traditional Catalan style, has striking, ivy-covered stone walls and fairy lights that sparkle as you dance all night under the moon!

This wonderfully preserved property has been hosting weddings since 1992, so their hospitality is impeccable, with the wedding team taking great care to deliver a personalized, unrushed experience, hosting only one wedding per day. 

Dine indoors in a stunning banquet hall, lined with ancient frescoes, or enjoy sunset wines in the inviting garden — this laid-back Spanish finca is ideal for couples looking for a relaxed wedding space with a strong connection to the land, a dreamy setting to celebrate and connect with loved ones. 

5. La Casa de la Seda

If you’re looking for Barcelona wedding venues in the heart of the city, La Casa de la Seda is one of the most unique choices. An 18th-century historic Guild house known for its elaborate exterior facade and Baroque-inspired moldings, this venue delivers so much elegance and luxury that it really transports you back in time. 

It’s available for private wedding hire, ideal for smaller weddings. The ornate Main Room, decked out in historic silks, artwork, and sparkling chandeliers, can host up to 84, banquet style, but more intimate spaces, such as the wood-paneled Living Room or Library would suit a smaller elopement. 

With a grand marble staircase, black and white tiled entryway, and priceless art as your backdrop, your La Casa de la Seda weddings will be so chic, with a dramatic and striking editorial flair. Located in the city’s Ribera district, known for its narrow streets, striking architecture, and artisan history, we can also take a walk around the area to capture some candid wedding portraits. 

6. Xalet del Nin

A coastal Mediterranean mansion, Xalet del Nin is a recently refurbished oceanfront residence from 1913, thoughtfully designed with grand stone archways and balconies that connect the luxurious interior with the waterfront, just steps away. With firepits, an infinity pool, and comfortable outdoor lounges, there are plenty of places for quality conversation and laughter with your loved ones. 

With immaculate lawns and gardens, inviting stone patios, and inspiring views, a Xalet del Nin wedding has plenty of choices for an outdoor ceremony and reception that will impress your guests! However, they also have a stunningly unique modern greenhouse space that’s ideal for an indoor reception, but with floor-to-ceiling views of the magical space all around you. 

For your wedding images, we’ll take advantage of the golden sunset and all of the gorgeous light that streams into this space, creating ethereal, classic wedding photos that capture all of the fun and love of your beautiful celebrations. 

7. Marimurtra Botanical Garden

For a completely unique wedding venue, the Marimurtra Botanical Garden is a beautiful outdoor space where you can say your vows overlooking the dramatic Costa Brava cliffs. Just an hour from Barcelona, this is one of Europe’s oldest botanic gardens, with several thousand species of vibrant plants, flowers, and trees.

The venue’s Linnaeus Pavilion is one of the most breathtakingly romantic places for your ceremony. Imagine walking down the aisle, the soft Mediterranean sun shining down, as you then say your vows overlooking the ocean, hand in hand under a small rotunda. Then, toast and celebrate your love in Lloret Square, a waterfront courtyard space where the venue’s banquet team can set up cocktails, formal dining, or canapes to savor. 

With so much lush vegetation, your Marimurtra Botanical Garden wedding photography will be bright, happy, and colorful, with the magical garden spaces here the perfect backdrop for your love! 

8. Masia Cabellut

What is a wedding without wine? For an unforgettable Barcelona wedding, Masia Cabellut offers the rustic luxury of a historic farmhouse with the fun of getting married at a working winery. Producing traditional Cava wines, along with olive oil, this venue is wonderful for foodies, as Cabellut’s locally sourced degustation menus will be such a hit at your wedding reception. 

For your ceremony, you have a choice of several romantic outdoor spaces, including the Vineyard, the Enchanted Forest, or the Almond Tree Garden, or there’s also a historic chapel, dramatically perched on a cliff. Then, as the sun sets, get ready for your reception, either indoors in the Luxury Ballroom or outside at the Pergola or Private Courtyard. 

Designed in an elegant, underrated style, your Masia Cabellut wedding images will be dreamy and stylish, with lots of areas where we can shoot — I love the textures and colors of the venue’s 3000 square meters of gardens, full of aromatic rosemary and thyme, the well-worn stone walls of the villa, and the rolling hills of the vineyard. 


I know it’s hard to decide on your venue, as there are so many incredible options! You might also love these secret Barcelona spots too.
