The Great Wall of China

Say “I do” alongside the Great Wall of China, Symbol of Love and Freedom

If you are looking for a truly unique wedding venue, with an unforgettably beautiful view, consider the rooftop of the Commune, a collection of villas run by Kempinski hotel group. This is a luxury, five-star resort with food and views sure to please everyone. From this hotel, you will be afforded views of the wall and the mountains beyond it. The wedding reception can be held at the clubhouse, which can accommodate a party of up to 500 individuals and is therefore appropriate for large affairs. If your party is smaller, you can be served traditional Chinese food, by a butler, in one of your own villas or a chalet. The Great Wall of China is a wonderful location that has, over time, witnessed many love stories. Many of the legends surrounding it include tales of love, and it is therefore considered a highly romantic wedding location. If you are considering a destination wedding, it might be just the location for you.

The Great Wall of China, in the Shuiguan Mountains, rests on private land and is a one-hour drive from the BeijingInternationalCapitalAirport, or 20 kilometres away from the main train station nearby (Qing Long). Rooms at the Commune include breakfast, and prices range widely depending on room desired and the time of year. There are less expensive hotels in the area as well, so all of your guests will be sure to find something they can enjoy without worry.

You and your guests can, of course, combine the event with a trip around this beautiful country. China has endless possibilities for exploration and, depending on time and finances available to you, there are numerous options to choose from in planning your trip. Your guests will also be able to enjoy this splendid country and all that it has to offer. River cruises, shopping, fantastic cuisine, and exquisite countryside views are just several of the gems China has to display.

China has vast-ranging climate conditions, so to ensure maximum enjoyment of your special day be sure to plan the trip around the type of weather that you enjoy. The spring typically affords very pleasant weather, and the vegetation surrounding the wall is lush and green, but will allow you to avoid the masses of tourists who flock to China during the summer months.
