Same-sex symbolic ceremonies



Do you want to celebrate your same-sex or lgbt+ elopement, destination wedding, or vow renewal extraordinarily while you feel accepted and safe? We hand-picked the most open-minded Europe destinations to organize your dream love celebration.

A wedding abroad is a unique way to let your love shine against a stunning backdrop. Europe is the continent of romance, home to the greatest love stories of all time, and for a reason! Full of history and multi-faceted, unique locations are plenty and waiting for you.

Some cities have been historically wedding and holiday destinations for LGBT+ people, such as Sitges and Mykonos, but this doesn’t mean you can’t experience true love in other Europe destinations as well, where gay and lesbian marriage is accepted, and there are laws against LGBT+ discrimination.

You deserve to celebrate your love story. We will make it happen.


To make things easier for you, we have designed a unique user-friendly system that enables you, in a straightforward look, to choose all three elements to make your ceremony a successful one: the type of ceremony your want (elopement, destination wedding, or vow renewal), its location and the price package (including the different services you would like included). The price of those all-inclusive packages may vary depending on the destination.

We have designed these very affordable wedding packages thanks to a decade-long experience in celebrating symbolic ceremonies. On top of that, you are included in our expertise in choosing the right vendors (whether you would like a car, a wedding photographer, or a video-maker) to fulfill your unique needs. We love to think about our activity as a great way to design your dream day. To do that, we will take all the time we need to get to know you and your honey so that we can plan a one-of-a-kind ceremony.

So join us here; we will be happy to be at your side for the creation of this leisurely, flowing, and magical day you are about to celebrate!



The Love Gracefully team has organized weddings in Europe for 15 years. Pierre, the founder and one of our celebrants, started this business in Paris, France, the city of love, and he is passionate about love stories: no matter where you come from, who you are, or who you love, he believes everyone deserves to celebrate their relationship freely.

That motivated him to create a fantastic team of wedding coordinators, celebrants, and other vendors aligned with his vision for gay and lesbian weddings around the most welcoming European cities.

Our celebrants and coordinators are locals, so they know the cities where you will organize your lgbt+ wedding or ceremony. They will be there for you to support you at any step to make sure your day is only about you. Our coordinators will find the best vendors and offer our secret wedding spots to ensure you get the best backdrop without annoying crowds.

And the most important: they all speak good English in countries or cities where the natives might not understand it very well. They’ll gladly help you navigate the customs and particularities of the European city of your choice.

A little further down south, in Spain, we can organize your wedding in Sitges. The biggest gay-friendly beach destination in Europe, Sitges is a great spot to soak up the Mediterranean vibes, sun on the beach, and destination weddings.

Not only that, but Sitges is only 30 minutes from downtown Barcelona where you’ll find everything you can think of. So, Sitges offers both the advantage of a small town on the sea with all the benefits of a big city. Check it out and see if the Spanish vibes are for you!

Create your perfect ceremony

The best LGBT ceremony is the one that you are dreaming about!

Feeling overwhelmed about organizing your elopement in Europe is expected, so many questions arise. But that is why we are here, to answer all your questions and disappear your fears. Let’s start organizing your same-sex marriage.

Chose your destination

As we said, all our wedding destinations are LGBT+ friendly, and you will feel celebrated and welcomed. Of course, if you want to feel in the heart of the gay and lesbian communities in Europe, Sitges and Mykonos are your best choice.

Otherwise, you can pick a location with another criterion. Maybe your ancestors were from Europe, and you want to honor them on this special day. On the other hand, you might want a specific vibe or aesthetic, and that’s a great reason to choose one place or another. You might want to consider your budget and loved ones if you plan to have guests – some destinations can offer the same comfort and greatness while being more affordable.

If you are still in doubt, don’t hesitate to reach out, and we will help to find the perfect place for your LGBT+ elopement, destination wedding, or vow renewal.

Book your special day

Dates at Love Gracefully book very quickly, so once you are committed to getting married in Europe, you should block your day and wedding package as soon as possible to ensure your planning goes smoothly.

You can decide on a date that is significant in your love story or convenient for your trip. Keep in mind weather conditions or the affluence of tourism crowds. We can help you with that, but ultimately, all decisions are alright!

With your date defined, it is time to pick a wedding package. We created five ceremony packages that accommodate most couples’ basic needs but will be personalized to make your vision come true.

We create together the best day of your life

With a location, date, and wedding package chosen, it is the moment to have fun: design your wedding!

The ceremony must speak about who you are and your love story. That’s why our celebrant will contact you in advance to get to know you better and ensure your day is only about you. This way, they can build a script that touches your heart and work with the coordinator to offer you the best ideas for this unique day.

Once we get to know you, we will help you personalize all the details in your package. If you want some extras, we can add them for an extra cost. No matter what you wish, we will make it happen.
