Top Tips For Finding Your Perfect Wedding Venue

Katherine Grant

If you are starting to plan your wedding then ‘find the perfect venue’ is going to be at the very top of your list!

But with so much choice, it may feel like the World Wide Web is a haystack hiding away the dream wedding location.  No-one knows this better than’s very own venue guru Rachel:

“Your wedding will be the best day of your life, but the joy of it starts now, as you begin to make exciting and personal decisions about the big things and the details; here are some of my top venue finding tips to set you on the right path…”

1. What’s your style?

Your perfect venue should reflect both your tastes, so take some time together to think about what kind of venue suits your personalities.  Are you both bananas about the beach, or love to delve into history?

Perhaps you can’t get enough of the remote countryside or the buzz of a big city?

2. Location, location, location!

If you have an idea of where you want to get married then take a look at venues in the vicinity.  Check out the ‘browse by region’ search on for inspiration and up-to-date details of the best wedding venues in the UK. There may be locations right on your doorstep that you never knew about!

3. Let’s talk money honey!

Time to be realistic.  Stick to your budget, and remember to check if the prices are suitable for you BEFORE you commit to a visit. If you find a venue which is a bit beyond your purse strings don’t be afraid to ask for off peak packages.

4. Road trip!

Now for the fun part: use venue viewing as an excuse for a romantic day out.  Take your time together in the venue, and try to visualise the day.

Can you see yourselves tying the knot here, and will all your guests be comfortable? Ask as many questions as you can!  And you can always re-visit your top venues before you sign on the dotted line.

5. Think outside of the box

The most important tip by far when location hunting, is to keep an open mind. You may end up falling in love with a venue you’d never considered when you first started your search.  There are so many unique wedding venues available today. How about a wildflower meadow wedding at Roulotte Retreat in the heart of the Scottish Boarders?

Or maybe your perfect venue is in a chic and stylish Art Gallery like The London Institute of Contemporary Arts?
