Weird & Wonderful Wedding Venues

When choosing a wedding venue you want it to really stand out from the crowd.
A wedding has a lot of expectations to live up to, so finding the right venue is crucial. Couples are increasingly abandoning the castles, stately homes and golf courses and are opting for more memorable and extravagant settings which will amaze and delight the guests.
Depending on the space you have to work with, you can do some pretty amazing and unique things.
The venue should reflect you and your future husband’s personalities, whether that’s bright and energetic or reserved and classic. Wherever you choose you don’t want to look back and think “was my venue actually right for me?”
