Securing a wedding venue is usually the best place to start for any couple and ensuring you choose the perfect venue for you is so important, as it will set the tone for the rest of the day. Using Wedding Planner’s search functionality, you can view a wide range of different wedding venue styles across the UK along with all their prices and availability. We have so many different styles to choose from such as castles and barns, to manor houses, hotels and even pubs. You can compare venues by capacity, corkage and types of ceremonies offered along with lots of other key information.
With all the details in front of you make sure you think about if the venue suits your theme, if it’s big enough to accommodate your guests and what you are actually getting for your money. A lot of wedding venues don’t have ceremony licenses, so you’ll need to factor in the cost of your ceremony at a separate location if this is the case. Once you’ve made your decision you’ll need to get things booked quickly, as many wedding venues get booked by couples well over 12 months in advance. It is always worth considering flexibility around day and time of year as you may be able to get a better deal and have a stronger negotiating position. We also recommend building a strong relationship with your wedding coordinator at the venue as they are in the position to make your wedding planning that little bit easier.
