Machu Picchu Wedding Planners

Love Rocks at Machu Picchu!  Are you willing to go to the ends of the Earth to affirm eternal devotion to your betrothed? Til death do you part? Machu Picchu ruins are not the most extreme location for a wedding, but they are one of the most impressive.  Whether you want to shout it aloud for all to hear, or whisper tenderly in your loved one's ear, we make it possible to express your message of adoration in a world-class, picture perfect setting!  Machu Picchu and the Andes Mountains provides one of the most magnificent backdrops for your destination wedding.  

We are expert organizers with access to authentic local resources needed for any size wedding in Peru. We know how to organize tours to Machu Picchu that will blow your garters off!  We have guided over 6000 people to Machu Picchu.  Including wedding parties & honey-mooners!

Want to do a hike after the wedding? How about the 4-day Inca Trail?  Even the easy 1-day hike is doable by most active people.  We can split your group up to better accommodate different abilities. 

Organizing a wedding is similar to organizing a trip-of-a-lifetime.  It's special.  It's unique.  And each traveler/bride/groom has a vision of what their special trip/event should look like.  It should have character all it's own.  It's possible for the bride & groom to separate from the group after the wedding and continue their trip as honeymooners. 

Machu Picchu Wedding FAQ

  • Can we have our wedding ceremony inside the Machu Picchu National Park? 
    It's not permitted to have ceremonies inside the park.  One of the best things about the Machu Picchu National Park is that they don't allow vendors or development anywhere near the ruins.  That's why they look so authentic.  They are!  But it is permitted to bring your wedding party inside the park.   We recommend that the ceremony take place in the Sacred Valley the day before you visit the ruins.
  • Can we get married by a local shaman?
    There are many special outside places to stage a wedding ceremony.  In the Sacred Valley, we can hire a local shaman to officiate at your wedding.  It can be as elaborate or as simple as you choose.
  • What if we want to get married by a Catholic priest?
    In Peru, Catholicism is embraced by many.  It is not a problem to be married by a Catholic priest
