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.
The Gherkin - London
Affectionately known as “The Gherkin”, this iconic building is one of London’s most unique venues and prestigious landmarks boasting a stunning 360 degree panorama. Accommodating up to 144 guests for the wedding breakfast, with the mezzanine level bar hosting up to 260 guests for an evening reception and dancing. Guests journey to the top of the building at incredible speed and arrive to Level 39 for the wedding ceremony. After the ceremony, guests will be invited 180 metres from ground level for drinks and canapés under the glass dome of the Gherkin. Doesn't get much cooler than that! Searcys
