Have you ever dreamed of eloping or honeymooning in a romantic, historic city? Dubrovnik, Croatia – with its stunning seaside views, cobblestone streets, and gorgeous architecture, choosing to elope in Dubrovnik will make for the perfect backdrop for any ceremony or getaway.
I spent a great evening with this darling couple exploring the city. From taking photos at “Kings Landing” near the city gates, walking the city walls, to catching the last rays of sunset from atop a nearby cable car – it was full of adventure! It’s such a precious experience to document special moments like this. If you’re planning an elopement, honeymoon or couples’ session – read on below about how to make this happen.
When you elope in Dubrovnik, planning ahead will help ensure your special day goes off without any hitches. I am here to help you plan any activities for your elopement day & to get you in touch with any caterers, tour guides, picnic planner, florists, etc. I have a list with tons of highly reviewed vendors.
The biggest benefit to eloping in Dubrovnik is that there are a variety of locations to choose from; some more private than others. You can consider the City Walls and Minceta Tower which is situated right by the town walls – it’s perfect for sunset photos, stunning views and romantic moments with your partner! If you’re looking for something even more unique, consider exchanging vows underwater or at Lokrum Island on a private beach. The possibilities are endless!
Before you elope in Dubrovnik, it’s important to familiarize yourself or get help understanding all legal requirements that may be necessary if you plan to get married outside of your home country.

While most come just for their special day when they plan an elopement destination wedding, consider making it into a holiday too! Hotels near Pile Gate stand within close proximity to the main attractions while also offering stunning furnished balconies overlooking beaches as well as luxury amenities fit for a honeymooning couple!
Dubrovnik has so many unique activities to enjoy on your holiday! You can set up private boat trips to tour around neighboring islands. If you’d like a seafood lunch at Lapad Bay Beach, no problem! Kayaking around the city walls is a great way to spend a morning! Overlooking Dubrovnik at sunset at local iconic landmarks like Srđ Hill is so breathtaking. You can either take the cable car or drive your own vehicle –it’s an adventurer’s paradise!
