Are you still looking for the perfect wedding venue for your dream day? Your choice of venue sets the tone for the entire day, whether you want a glamorous stately home wedding venue to set the scene for a fancy affair, or a laidback rustic barn wedding venue for a casual and chilled out day.
We’ve rounded up the best types of wedding venue to suit all personality types – what will you go for?
If You’re Traditional
Traditional couples who want their wedding to take place all in one venue should consider a hotel wedding venue. Hotels often provide the perfect blank canvas and a range of packages, which is ideal if you’re looking for an affordable wedding under £10k.
We love the Guildford Harbour Hotel – it’s the perfect example of an elegant hotel setting with a choice of packages to suit your needs.

If You’re Quirky and Cool
Edgy couples need an unusual style of wedding venue to suit their personalities. We love the idea of hiring a blank canvas in the form of an industrial warehouse wedding venue and putting your own stamp on it, whether it’s with creative lighting or a quirky signature wedding cocktail.
Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse is a great example of a quirky and cool warehouse wedding venue – the exposed brick walls and metal columns will really add something to your décor.

Foodie couples should definitely consider a restaurant wedding venue. Getting married at a restaurant will give your big day a cosmopolitan feel, and allow you to share your favourite cuisine with your guests.
Hosting your wedding at a restaurant can be really sentimental too – particularly if it’s where you had your first date or if it’s a place you visit together a lot. We love the Belle Epoque Brasserie in Cheshire, which is famous for its fine wines and award winning food.
