Finding THE wedding venue can be the hardest nut to crack on your wedding plan. Proximity to home/elderly relatives; ambience; cost; capacity; funny little rules venues dictate, can be enough to put any bride/groom into a spin. As more and more weddings these days are becoming less corporate hotel chain affairs, couples tying the knot are increasingly on the hunt for a venue that fulfills big dreams. Not necessarily of the princess variety, but of a personal, meaningful to the newlyweds kind.
This ‘holy grail’ can also entail the need for unique, never-done-before and a wedding people don’t stop talking about. High ambitions require some pretty far-out options, and for those of you quirky, adventurous and non-conventional types out there, here’s our top ten unusual wedding venues around the UK.
