Picking where you want to get married can be a difficult one! There are so many different options nowadays and also lots to think about! You can choose from places that have everything in house or throwing a complete DIY wedding where you can decide and organise all the little details.
The wedding venue is your first decision to make! Once you have this and a date in place you can start to think of all the lovely other suppliers and details to make your day unique to you.
So where do you start with searching for the perfect place? Think about Location, Style and budget!
Where on the planet do you want to get married? Would you prefer to be close to home or abroad?
Do you want the wedding ceremony to be at the same place as the reception? Or would you not mind travelling to a different location? Some venues don't hold licences so you would need to get legally married elsewhere. There are so many different choices, so speak with your partner and decide what is important to you!
There are so many different styles to choose from! You can go for a woodland festival, a gothic castle, a grand manor house or your relaxed local pub! What style best suits your vision for the wedding? Remember...you can pick anywhere to get married! choose something that makes you both happy.
The venue can take up a huge portion of your budget! Be sure to email and ask questions before visiting! You wouldn’t want to fall in love with a venue that is way over budget.
Within the budget you should consider and research the venues policies on corkage, what suppliers you can use (if they have recommended caterers you have to use) and add ons. This way you won’t have any surprise cost additions.
So we have put together a list of our favourite unique wedding venues:
1. God’s own Junkyard
If you love Neon signs this is the place for you! A shop, bar and wedding venue covered head to toe in bright neon lights! I’ve been here and it is seriously amazing! The venue is small so this would only really work for intimate weddings. Just think of how epic your wedding photos would be!!!
2. The Canary Shed
We absolutely love this wedding venue! The décor is so unique, and the personal touches like the thousands of origami birds on the ceiling look so special. It is dog friendly!!! Which is great if you want to bring your four-legged best friends. Also, they have the most amazing dog Ozzy on site who is the absolute cutest!
One of the best things about this venue is not only does it have some accommodation for you and your guests to sleep BUTTTT it has a bloody stunning Spa where you can nurse your hangover post wedding.
3. The Asylum Chapel
Now this place is ridiculously cool and unique! You could never image from the outside that this is hidden beneath! The distressed chapel dates back 200 years and is a photographer’s dream! This venue is perfect for a romantic and intimate wedding. The chapel is also dog friendly so you can have your best floofy friends attend.
4. Tunnels Beach
This place is breathtakingly beautiful! Not only does it have a hand carved tunnel through the cliff, but it has its own secluded private beach. They also have beautiful accommodation on site and has the most stunning views.
5. Kew Gardens
We absolutely love the epic ‘Temperate House’ at Kew gardens. The stunning green house is filled with 10,000 species of rare plants and it is beautiful! If you want a jungle paradise then this is the place for you! Kew gardens has a lot of different venue spaces to choose from! But we LOVE this one!
6. Victoria Baths
Ever thought of getting married in a grade II listed Edwardian swimming pool? Well, here is your chance! How cool is this place! They have loads of cool rooms to use for your wedding day. The photo opportunities are endless!!
