An outdoors Cavtat wedding: Amanda & Darren’s wedding day

An outdoors Cavtat wedding: Amanda & Darren’s wedding day

Amanda and Daren got married in Cavtat, they are happy to share their story with you today. We will show you some of their wedding day images and share the thoughts of our wedding couple with you. Their outdoors wedding ceremony overlooked the idyllic bay of Cavtat, framed by mountains and sea. What more could you wish for?


1) why did you pick to have a destination wedding in Croatia?

We chose Croatia because we visited when i was pregnant and fell in love with the place. We saw a couple getting married and decided that when we tied the knot that is where we would do it.

2) where did you both meet & how long have you been together?

We met when we were 17 and used to go clubbing in London. Then did not see each other for the next 18 years until we met in a local bar 6 years ago. Within a year we had bought a house and were expecting a baby. Once you know you know!

3) were you very nervous or rather relaxed during the planning stage or closer to your wedding day?

We were not nervous leading up to the wedding, we are both very laid back people. With your team doing all the work there was nothing to be stressed about.

4) how did you feel walking down the aisle, seeing the ceremony and of course: the groom!

Walking done the aisle I was excited. The place was beautiful, the sun was shining and all my family and friends were there.

5) in retrospect, are you happy with the venue choices?

We were so happy with the venue it was amazing.

6) what are your thoughts about the wedding planning and photography services?

Loved everything about the planning relaxed and easy. The photography was great we hardly noticed he was there so we got some lovely natural shots.

7) do you have any tips for other brides and grooms?

Just to enjoy your day and let the team do the work because they know what they are doing!



The ceremony venue: a terrace overlooking the bay of Cavtat. Panoramic views are an understatement….

After the ceremony, guests walked to the dock where their boat was waiting. of course…. Amanda and Daren had other means of transport in mind! 🙂













Dinner was served at the Alverde Terrace, which is one of the few outdoor terraces which offers welcome shade on those hot summer afternoons.








And here our photographer said goodbye to our bride and groom, the party continued, but maybe, possibly, those images are better left unpublished….

    Hi there,

    We have recently returned from a holiday in Cavtat and we decided this is where we want to be married. We fell in love with the place!

    We are really interested in the possibility of the Villa Benach for the ceremony and the Hotel Spinaker for the reception. We are also really keen on having a drinks reception on a boat in-between.

    Please could you send us some more information on costings and details, as you did for Aine above.

    It would be great to hear back from you!

    Best wishes

    Claire and Andy

    • Hello Claire and Andy,

      we are happy to hear you had a nice holiday. Cavtat is a quaint and fairly quiet seaside town, really lovely to spend your holidays, we could not agree more.

      We are sending you more information to your email, as well as a sample budget.

      Kind regards,

      Dubrovnik Weddings

  2. Hi,

    These photos are amazing!! This is exactly what we are looking for in June 2018. We would be a party of 35-40 and I think the boat cruise with drinks is just fab! Where did the bridal party and other guests stay? Would you be able to send me some more information/costs?

    Thanks in advance!


    • Hello Aine,

      The guests for this party were staying in Dubrovnik, Mlini or Cavtat. It really is not that far, especially Mlini and Cavtat are two regions that are combined a lot. Plus, if you stay there, it is often cheaper than staying in Dubrovnik.

      I will email you a full wedding day budget and also send you some more back ground information on getting married in Cavtat!

      Kind regards,

      Dubrovnik Weddings
