The World’s Most Instagrammable Holiday Destinations
The Wedding Ideas team share their top places to snap for Instagram. Here’s their edit of the world’s best Instagram holiday destinations…
Editor, Danielle Wilkins in Marrakech
“Oh, Marrakech – where the garden game is strong and the taxi rides are ever-so slightly terrifying, but it’s the hustle and bustle of this beautiful city that brings cultured couples back year after year.
“It was a hit in the eighties, when Yves Saint Laurent was so inspired he bought the colonial Majorelle Gardens, and it’s since enjoyed something of a renaissance, with the likes of Kate Moss and Matthew Williamson spotted partying into the early hours, and Poppy Delevingne and James Cook transporting their friends and family over for their wedding.
“When you’re not exploring the sights, sounds and smells of the Medina, there are mountains and greenery to be enjoyed, delicious food to be tasted in rooftop restaurants and traditional Moroccan hammams to be had.
“And while you’re spoilt for choice with plenty of romantic riads to stay in, nothing says honeymoon luxury quite like a five-star hotel.
“The Movenpick Mansour Eddahbi Marrakech is a terracotta-tiled oasis with three dreamy pools, a yoga studio, gym, vibrant gardens lined with lemon and orange trees, a dreamy spa, restaurant and more, all within walking distance from the Medina.”

Creative Director, Chloe Collyer in Sri Lanka
“From the scenery to the people, Sri Lanka is the most beautiful place.
“Whether you’re up close with wild elephants in the national parks, or doing sunset yoga on the beach, I cannot say enough… you have to go!
“It’s total escapism in the most awe-inspiring way – just wow!”

Editorial Assistant, Annie Quinton in Venice
“Often marketed as one of the most romantic places in the world, Venice is, quite simply, otherworldly.
“Crossing over the bridge from mainland Italy is almost like stepping back in time; boat is the only method of transport here, with gondolas, water taxis and vaporettos vying for space in the narrow canals that snake up and down the city.
“But, for all the hustle and bustle of tourists and locals, it is possible to find a quiet moment – put down your map and get lost in the winding streets, back passages and alleyways and you’re sure to find a hidden courtyard or deserted canal path as a reward.”

Digital Content Producer, Ruby Norris in Nice
“Nice really is the heart of the French Riviera and an all-time favourite destination of mine. I’ve been coming here since I was a child and every year I love it even more, as the rustic buzz of Provence mixes with the luxe and glamour of the Côte D’Azur.
“After a long day of perusing the promenade and dipping in and out of the Med in between sips of the coldest, palest Rosé on the beach, you can lose yourself in a maze of cobbled streets and hidden squares as the Old Town comes alive at night.
“A city break on the sea, it’s perfect for a long weekend away.”

Digital Editor, Jennifer Read-Dominguez in Talum
“This picture was taken at a gorgeous beach bar in Talum, Mexico. I went for a friend’s wedding and it was just an unforgettable experience.
“If you want a beautiful destination wedding on a budget – the idyllic white-sand beaches, crystalline water (and constant flow of strawberry daiquiris for your bridesmaids) make Mexico the perfect place to go.”

Sales Executive, Kat Mcilroy in Méribel
“The amazing Méribel offers a combination of large area of amazing slopes to ski and even better aprés!
“Recharge after a morning of skiing in the beautiful hidden-away mountain restaurants in peaceful surroundings.
“If you’re looking for something a little more lively, La Folie Douce is the place to be for daily after parties and champagne showers before returning to your charming wood chalets.
“Whether you are a skiing enthusiast, lover of mountains or just looking for the perfect Instagrammable getaway, you’re bound to fall in love with Méribel.”

Digital Content Producer, Kelly Green in Paris
“There’s a reason why Paris is one of the most romantic destinations in the world. You have to see it to believe it.
“If it’s not the romantic, instagram-worthy architecture and tree-lined streets that will have you swooning, then it is definitely the rich, indulgent food at endless, classy bistros and bars.”

Senior Digital Executive, Jenny Choo in Corfu
“If you love clear blue skies, white-sandy beaches and cocktails by the pool, Corfu is the perfect destination for you.
“But Corfu offers a lot more than just sun and sea – there are old fortresses to admire, boat trips to explore the island and plenty of restaurants serving traditional Greek food – my favourites being homemade moussaka and mussels saganaki.”
