Where to get tie the knot

If you have recently become engaged then you’ll be busy trying to decide on the best venue for your celebrations. There are so many options available these days that it can be a bit of  a minefield as you can now get married in many places not just churches or registry offices. Let’s take a look at some of the different venues available:

In a barn – for a touch of real rustic country chic then opt to celebrate your big day in a barn decorated to your exact requirements for a relaxed and unique affair.

Castles – if you want to splash the cash and fancy being treated like royalty for a day then there are many castles across the country where your dreams can come true.

Stately Homes – there are hundreds of these up and down the country and similar to a castle, they will offer you a touch of class and some splendid backdrops for your wedding photographs. Be a Lord and Lady for the day.

Outdoor – there are many venues now that can offer an outdoor ceremony, maybe in a lakeside location. If you love nature and wildlife then this option will really appeal to you and you can carry on the party under the cover of a hired marquee.

Countryside – there are farms that offer ceremonies and even venues that come with outdoor activity centres attached. One such countryside setting is the only wedding venue in the UK with it’s own 250m zip wire.

Sporting venues – these are great for offering large venues, great facilities and run a very professional show due to their experience with large numbers of people. Fantastic backdrops for your photos and many are in useful central locations. For Taunton venue hire, visit http://www.countygroundtaunton.co.uk/

Coastal – weddings can now take place on beaches so you can say your vows to the gentle lapping of the waves.

City – hire a chic inner city hotel or restaurant for a party that the paparazzi should be attending.

Landmarks – if there is a special landmark that has a personal meaning to you and your partner, maybe a spot where the proposal happened then find out if they have a licence to conduct ceremonies or hold your celebrations nearby and have your photos taken at the landmark.

How many guests you want to invite will have a big impact on the type of venue you will choose. Then you will need to consider what type or style of wedding suits you both best. Setting a budget is also an important step and so is booking in advance as some venues have to be booked 12-18 months in advance of the wedding day due to popularity. If the venue you desire has a long waiting list then discuss the prospect of maybe having your wedding on a Thursday or Friday. This should enable you to receive significant midweek discounts and a chance to get in at your chosen location.
