5 Ideas For Unique Wedding Venues

Finding a wedding venue is one of the most difficult tasks when you are planning your wedding. If there isn’t a problem with the size, there’s a problem with how long you get to spend at the venue and, after a while, they can all begin to look very samey. If you are looking for unique wedding venues, then the hunt can begin to feel almost impossible, especially if you want something which reflects both of your personalities. 

But, there are unique wedding venues out there just waiting to be found. From aquariums and iconic landmarks to theatres and national parks, there are plenty of locations for your wedding - you just need to know where they are and what you want. 

Take centre stage

If you and your partner love spending an evening at the theatre, then why not combine this with your wedding? There are many theatres where you can have your wedding ceremony on the stage, with all your friends and family looking on from the audience. 

If you have a big guest list, then many theatres can sit up to 1,000 or more guests and everyone will get an excellent view of you making your vows. With so many theatres to choose from, you can take your pick from period features to statement organs for your pre-wedding entertainment, a theatre is one of the most unique wedding venues you can choose. 

Get married under the sea

Some aquariums offer couples the chance to get married alongside majestic sharks, fish and even playful penguins. If you are animal or ocean lovers looking for unique wedding venues, then this is a perfect choice. If the aquarium has tunnels, where you can look up at the swimming sea life above, then you can look at the possibility of getting married in one tunnel and having your reception in another. 

Zip wire vows

Are you and your partner searching for a wedding like no other? If you both love being outdoors and exploring, then you can get married at an outdoor high rope centre. Set amongst one of Scotland’s most beautiful lochs, this is one of the most fun and unique wedding venues you can choose. Simply put on your harnesses and take a once-in-a-lifetime trip down the aisle - this centre is home to one of the UK’s longest zip wires and sits 22 metres above the ground. 

Farmyard fun

Looking for a family-friendly venue? A farm is one of the most underrated and unique wedding venues you can choose - with an abundance of room which you can make your own and cute farm animals, what’s not to love. Whether you and your partner decide to hire a tipi tent for your ceremony and reception, get married outdoors under strings of fairy lights or even get an alpaca to be your best man!

Real-life fairytale

Have you ever wanted to live out your very own fairytale? If that’s a yes, then there are a number of breathtaking castles around the UK where you can get married, have your reception and even stay with your guests for the night. 

With a number of castles now being used as unique wedding venues, this means that whatever you are looking for, you are likely to find. Whether it’s sprawling castle grounds or romantic castle chambers, you can easily add your own twist to the castle, from marquees or a feast-style buffet.
