Guide to choosing your perfect wedding venue
Best Wedding Venues | Wedding Venues UK
When choosing your wedding venue it will undoubtedly be one of the biggest decisions you’ll make when getting married so it’s good to start considering your options as quickly as possible as the best wedding venues get booked up to 18 months in advance. If you’re not sure where to hold your wedding, it could be a beautiful wedding venue in Bedfordshire or a destination wedding in Ibiza, I have a few tips and suggestions for you.
Imagine the bride walking down the last steps of an old stone road of the perfect wedding venue in Bedfordshire. As a wedding photographer in Bedfordshire, my job is to catch all the right moments like the sun bouncing off her like a joyous dance, the way she smiles, the way she slowly approaches the ceremony. All the details of the perfect wedding venue add up to your dream. My job is to capture that story for you.
Having a perfect wedding venue is every bride and groom’s dream. Finding the right location is obviously key, whether the venue is chosen because it has meaning to the couple or it is simply to their liking. The location you chose can have important significance when it comes to wedding photography.
When looking to find the best wedding venue there are things you should take into consideration and check with each team. Make a list of question to ask at the venues so that you are prepared and keep on track.
-Do they offer a coordinator?
-Do they have a list of trusted suppliers or work with certain suppliers?
– Are certain parts of the grounds off-limits?
– Do they have accommodation in case you have guests traveling?
Here are just a few of the best wedding venues I love to shoot and where Gary Nunn Photography is recommended:
Elmore Court Weddings | Gloucestershire Wedding Venue
If you are looking for a beautiful wedding venue in Gloucestershire with history then this is the place. The house dates back to around 1580, though the Guise family have lived on this spot since 1274 and it is still first and foremost the family home. Anselm Guise, the current owner, spent several years scheming to turn Elmore Court into what it is now.
Elmore Court is a wonderfully eclectic mix of different architecture, from Elizabethan through to Victorian and almost all of the alterations over the years were done specifically to entertain, an intention we are faithfully continuing. The same family opened it up for fun and games in 2013. It’s one of the top wedding venues in the UK.
It includes a historic house and it’s gardens, a rammed earth building, amazing food, fine wine, boundless music and a large slice of love. I really enjoy shooting here.
Eggington House Weddings | Bedfordshire Wedding Venue
Built in 1696, it is a very fine example of late 17th century architecture. This location is surrounded by 35 acres of its own land, making it remote and quiet. Eggington House is one of the best wedding venues in Bedfordshire.
With its 5 acre beautiful gardens and St. Michael’s Church being a short yet beautiful, 4-minute walk away it offers perfect photographic opportunity’s.
Eggington House weddings offers preferred suppliers, they can supply a party planner, and they offer beautiful accommodations for your guests. Suzie and her team will look after you.
Chicheley Hall Weddings | Buckinghamshire Wedding Venue
Set within 80 acres of beautifully kept grounds, Chicheley Hall is one of the most popular wedding venues in Milton Keynes, and regarded as one of the top historic wedding venues in the country.
This Grade I listed building is complemented by the extensive gardens that can accommodate marquees for up to 300 guests.
Licensed for civil ceremonies, the Main House and its bar, sitting room, and dining room provides the ideal venue for intimate and exclusive wedding receptions.
Elixir Shore Club Weddings | Ibiza Wedding Venue
Set on a beach front on the West Coast Cala Codolar of Ibiza is Elixir. This is one of the best wedding venues in Ibiza.
Really beautiful and quiet location which I must say has truly stunning views and oozes class and luxury as soon as you arrive.
Gorgeous bars, chill out areas, stylish everything and the food is so good, it really is the perfect wedding venue in Ibiza and for any destination wedding.
