Manowce Palace named European Best Wedding Venue

Manowce Palace has been awarded the title of the European Best Wedding Venue 2020 by European Best Destinations, the largest European tourist portal. Manowce was chosen from a selection of breathtaking venues located in such fashionable wedding locations as the Greek island Santorini, the Algarve coast in Portugal and even Venice.

Manowce is a historic property uniquely located in northwestern Poland, surrounded by boundless woods, far from residential areas and set right on the shore of a large bay next to the Baltic Sea. Despite its remote location, Manowce is only 2.5 hours from Berlin and its airports, and the property offers a complimentary shuttle service from and to the Berlin airports for the guests and the bride and groom.

European Best Destinations have pointed out that Manowce perfectly matches its exceptionally scenic location with stunning, elegant interiors, and that it has an excellent offer for destination weddings.

For foreign couples, Manowce can handle all the paperwork and get the necessary permissions from local authorities and churches for them to legally marry in Poland. Manowce are open to all wedding planning options: couples can use their in-house wedding coordinator or they can recommend a local wedding planner who knows local suppliers. Couples can choose one of their wedding packages or can customize them as they like. Manowce welcomes weddings of all types and sizes. These can be large parties outdoors for up to 100 guests, or wedding receptions for two, just the eloping couple. Whatever the size of the wedding, Manowce always offers its services on an exclusive-use basis.

If the couple likes, Manowce can infuse the wedding with Polish music, dance, food and wedding customs. They can serve specialities like bigos (sour hunter’s stew), pierogi (Polish dumplings), gołąbki (cabbage rolls), żurek (sour rye meal mash soup) and kiełbasa (Polish sausage). On arriving at the reception party, the newlyweds may be greeted by their parents with a huge loaf of bread, salt and two vodka shots. This tradition represents a wish that the couple will always have sustenance in their life together.

Destination weddings often turn into a little holiday for the guests. If the couple is looking to entertain themselves and their guests during the day, then along with swimming in the bay and mushrooming in the woods, Manowce can organise activities such as kayaking, sailing, fishing, cycling, golf, horse riding and shooting. They have 13 double bedrooms and 3 suites, which can accommodate up to 33 guests in total, or 42 including sofa beds and extra beds in some rooms.
