Top 20 – Balaton Wedding Venue

Hi, thank you for stopping by. Im a wedding photographer in Hungary. Throughout the years I have photographed many weddings by Balaton and I love the whole area. I wanted to make a list for you to help you to decide among all the gorgeous wedding venues by Balaton.

Balaton has gained a lot of popularity in the last couple of years, and not only as a holiday location but many Hungarian couples and more and more engaged couples from abroad are having their wedding at one of the fine Balaton Wedding Venues.

As popularity grew new venues opened and older ones have been renovated and reopened. Balaton is not only gorgeous but by carefully choosing the best Hungarian wedding venue for yourself you will have the time of your lifetime there. Balaton is nostalgic and also new and trendy. Gastronomy is constantly developing and many of the best chefs of the country are moving down by the lake for the season and beyond.

Wine is – besides the lake – of course the the most attractive aspect of this region of Hungary, so you can definitely organise you vineyard wedding here.

Badacsony wedding venues are the most seeked after and it is for a good reason. The history and the pure beauty of the area speaks to itself. Balaton Felvidek is also a highly recommended destination, its rolling Tuscany like hills are just gorgeous.
