12 best venues and palaces for weddings in Asturias

Finding the best venues and palaces for weddings in Asturias can seem like a difficult task, since there are so many palaces and fincas to choose from that without visiting them it is very difficult to know which is the ideal place. The first step is to decide the type of wedding we want to have: How many guests are you going to be? If you want to do everything in the same place or not? If it is going to be civil ceremony or religious? If for you the exteriors or the interiors are more important? If you prefer to be able to choose the catering or do you care to take the kitchen of the place? Etc etc…

Resolving these details before beginning your search will help make things clearer.

En estos 10 años que llevo como fotógrafo de bodas en Asturias he trabajado en un montón de sitios y cada uno tiene sus puntos fuertes. Así que para haceros la búsqueda más fácil he decidido hacer este listado de los que para mi son algunos de las mejores fincas y palacios para bodas en Asturias.
