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.
