Unique Wedding Venues

If you want an impressive and unusual setting for your wedding, you’re going to fall in love with these unique wedding venues. Most couples find themselves tying the knot around the same period in life as their friends, which means it can be tough to find a venue that feels personal to you and hasn’t been used by one of friends before. The way to find somewhere that stands out is to go for a unique and quirky venue that lets your personalities shine through.

From zoos and working railways to piers, boats, converted churches, wineries, cool museums, alpaca farms, caves, historic halls, cutting-edge barns and far more, you’re spoilt for choice with unique wedding venues in the UK.

Not everything on the list is weird and wonderful, but they all have a non-traditional twist that your guests will love - from majestic staircases where you’ll walk in the footsteps of royalty to magical glamping sites that are completely out the ordinary. Anyone who wants an alternative wedding venue will find exactly what they’re looking for in our pick of unique venues.

Are Unique Wedding Venues More Expensive?

They don’t have to be! Unique doesn’t mean expensive. In fact, lots of these unique wedding venues are rustic and relaxed and many are family-run.

Before you begin your search, it’s worth knowing rough guest numbers and the theme you want. Even if it’s very broadly knowing you want a rustic wedding, a boho wedding, a modern and minimalist wedding, or a vintage wedding. This will guide what unique wedding venue is right for you.

Frequently asked questions regarding Unique and Unusual

What kind of unique and unusual venues can I choose for my wedding?

If you're not sure what kind of venue you'd like to celebrate your wedding at, look no further than the unique and unusual venue category on Hitched. You can find castles, parks, barns, unique historic buildings, extravagant ballrooms, museums, even caves!

What factors should you consider when choosing a unique wedding venue?

Since unique venues come in many shapes and sizes, you may come across unique obstacles or challenges. It's important that when you are considering a venue, that you visit it with your photographer and caterer. If your decorator and musician or DJ can visit, even better. This will allow them to scan the spaces and detect any possible issues that should be handled ahead of time. This may include needing better access to electricity, stairs or areas that make access for suppliers difficult, or any number of challenges. You should also communicate your wedding vision with the venue before booking so that they can let you know what will or won't be possible.

Why choose a unique or unusual wedding venue?

Sometimes a traditional or conventional wedding venue just doesn't reflect your personal style, or the vision you have for your wedding. That's why, lucky for you, we created this special category, so that you can find the most unique location to celebrate your big day, in a way that reflects the exact style and feeling you have always wanted for your wedding.
