Dunton Hot Springs
Number of people: 2-42
Rent an entire old mining town as the setting for your mountain-based nuptials: this one’s aspen-accented and surrounded by peaks, alpine springs, rivers, lakes and meadows. For the ceremony itself, hotspots within the resort are the cute wooden chapel, waterfall or meadows.
Need to know
There’s an event co-ordinator on hand to help as much or as little as you’d like. The chef will create bespoke menus based on the produce of the local organic farms, and the wine list can include offerings from nearby Sutcliffe Vineyard. Casual barbecues can be arranged, as can formal sit-down dinners.
Get active: pre- and post-wedding parties can involve heli-skiing, horse riding, snow-shoeing and cross-country skiing; plenty to keep guests entertained.
