Possibly one of the most important decisions when you’re planning your big day is the venue. There are so many options available, ranging from the low-key to all out glitz and glamour! There’s also the choice of staying home or breaking out the passports and getting married abroad! Whatever you choose, at The Insurance Emporium, we want to try and help you find the best possible location for your big day! That’s why we’ve put together this list of 15 of the most beautiful wedding venues!
1. Spitbank Fort, Portsmouth
Located in the sea between Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight, Spitbank Fort is a private venue with a roof top hot tub, three bars and much more! Plus, there’s no neighbours to disturb!
2. The Ritz, London
Surely one of the most famous and glamorous venues in the world, The Ritz is known for fine dining, afternoon tea and all out decadence. This could be the place to make you feel like royalty!
3. Schloss Prielau, Austria
Just 200 metres from the banks of Lake Zell in Austria, you’ll find Schloss Prielau, a typically Austrian wedding venue surrounded by natural beauty. This castle has a dedicated team onsite to help make your day unforgettable.
4. Icehotel, Sweden
Hopefully this won’t be a prelude for a ‘frosty’ marriage but Sweden’s Icehotel could be a beautiful setting for your wedding. With their Ice Ceremony Hall and an ice bed (with soft reindeer skins!), it could be a truly unique day!
5. Ludlow Castle, Shropshire
This castle dates back to 1086 and might be the ideal place for those hopeless romantics, history buffs or even Game of Thrones fans! With its large lawn marquee, you could find yourself outdoors and surrounded by history at Ludlow Castle!
6. Wentworth Club, Surrey
This could be ideal for the golf fans out there! Celebrating your nuptials at one of Britain’s most famous golf clubs is not just for golf-lovers though, the Wentworth Club might also be the perfect place for a lavish wedding!
7. Angkor Wat, Cambodia
This Buddhist temple could be the ideal place for a serene ceremony! With the smell of fresh jasmine in the air and beautiful beaches close by, escaping Britain for something different at Angkor Wat could lead to a truly unique wedding!
8. Speke Hall, Merseyside
If you’re looking for a beautiful setting, heading to the National Trust’s Speke Hall could be a place to start! This Tudor manor with its Victorian gardens offers plenty for couples to get excited about!
9. Alnwick Castle, Northumberland
The well-known setting for the first two Harry Potter films, Alnwick Castle might be the ideal venue for lovers of wizardry! Even if you’re not mad about movies, this venue might be magical thanks to its picturesque grounds.
10. One & Only Reethi Rah Resort, Maldives
If its true luxury that you’re looking for and you have no concerns about budget, the One & Only Reethi Rah Resort in the Maldives could be ideal. At around $7,000 a night, this private island has 130 private villas for your guests!
11. Le Castel, France
If you’re looking for a traditional French chateau wedding, Le Castel could be ideal. This Napoleon III chateau is located in Normandy, meaning that it’s an hour’s drive from the port of Cherbourg, so travel from the UK could be relatively simple!
12. Merchant Adventurers’ Hall, York
It’s perhaps no surprise that one of the oldest venues on this list is based in the historic city of York. Having stood since 1357, the Merchant Adventurers’ Hall is steeped in history and could be ideal for those who want a hint of the past during their big day.
13. Tunnels Beaches, Devon
The rugged coastline of Devon might be Britain’s answer to overseas coastal destination weddings. The bespoke Tunnels Beaches venue building includes a roof terrace, private beach and room for up to 160 guests!
14. Mara Bushtops, South Africa
If a marriage overlooking the plains of Africa appeals to you, the Mara Bushtops resort could be the perfect place for a wedding on the wild side! The ceremony takes place on a private deck with infinity pool and includes exclusive use of a safari four-wheel-drive vehicle for the day!
15. La Maltese, Santorini
The sea views and white houses of Santorini could be one of the most visually stunning and romantic places to tie the knot in Europe. With views of Santorini volcano on one side and the idyllic coastline on the other, La Maltese could be a fairy-tale venue for your dream day!
Picking from so many magical and beautiful venues could be a tough task but might make for the perfect wedding day!
