You may already have a dream wedding location in mind or you may be starting with a blank page. Either way, choosing your wedding venue is one of the first and most important decisions you will make.
Church Or Civil
There are likely to be two parts of your wedding to organise, the wedding ceremony and the wedding reception. You may have your heart set on a traditional church ceremony, which is still a favourite choice for couples. If this is the case then the reception should be planned around the church’s location. You will need to consider ease of transport for your guests from the ceremony to the reception venue. The second option is a civil wedding where your ceremony and reception will be held at a licensed venue.
When you have decided on a Church or Civil Ceremony, there are certain factors to consider. Firstly, the venue must look and feel right to you. You may have a particular style of venue in mind for example, a Castle, a Manor House or somewhere dramatic or chic. The choices are endless and where you choose will help you dictate the style and theme of your wedding.
Size And Location
The venue must be able to accommodate the number of guests you are inviting so you should have a good idea of numbers before you start looking around.Importantly the cost of the venue must suit your budget. Castles, country houses and stately homes are among the locations many dream of for their big day but consider your budget carefully.Properly planned, your reception will become one of the most joyous parties you will ever host, so remember to savour every minute and enjoy it!
