I want something different I hear you say!


In this heat, the only thing I can think to do is hug a giant cube of ice for the rest of the day.

If unlike me, your priority is wedding planning and you are looking for something outside of the norm, maybe something that represents you and your partners unconventional or quirky side then read on for some interesting and cool ideas for your wedding ceremony or reception.


If lighthouses are your thing.


NASH POINT (SOUTH WALES).

Operational lighthouse which can accommodate up to 25 guests over 2 floors.


THE OLD LIGHTHOUSE (DUNGENESS, KENT).

With ample free parking and prices starting from £500 it is worth checking this one out!


WEST USK LIGHTHOUSE (NEWPORT, SOUTH WALES).

So many good points to this one!
Weddings can be held in their downstairs dining room which has sea views and seating for 20 guests or there is the option to has an amazing spiral staircase as your wedding backdrop if you prefer to use their entrance hall.




If being a princess or prince on your big day is your thing.


LEEDS CASTLE (MAIDSTONE, KENT).

Oh gosh!! Just bring me a wedding dress (and a groom! lol) right now!

Absolutely love the look of this one.

PENDENNIS CASTLE (CORNWALL).
What a beautiful idea.

Another absolutely stunning castle and grounds. There are so many options as to where you have the ceremony and loads of extras to choose from.


CLEARWELL CASTLE (GLOUCESTERSHIRE).

A beautiful castle which can accommodate up to 150 guests in the day and up to 250 for the evening.




Just call me captain on my big day!


THE YACHT (LONDON).

With stunning views of the river Thames as your backdrop, this is one of my favs!
The top deck can be raised and used open air! Just imagine watching the sunset with all your family and friends.


HMS BELFAST (LONDON).

Oh gosh!! *note to self! This is not your wedding lol!   But if it was the HMS Belfast would be an amazing venue for a wedding. Imagine looking to your right and seeing Tower Bridge, the Shard or the Tower of London and then turning to your left and seeing Big Ben, the London Eye and of course catching an amazing sunset with your loved one.....Where do I sign up lol.



CHESTER BOATS (CHESTER).

Stunning rural Cheshire views and the ability to accommodate up to 120 guests and complimentary decorations included. 



Beach babes...This is for you!


TUNNELS BEACHES (DEVON).

120-day guests and 160 evening guests can join you for a wedding on a private and secluded beach!
This venue is accessed through a hand carved tunnel through a cliff....Sounds amazing!!


BOURNEMOUTH BEACH (DORSET).

Such a lovely idea to get married on a beach and without all the hassle of flying half way around the world to do so. Ok! so maybe the sun may not be shining and the view might not be so wonderful but I can imagine with a little bit of imagination and a lot of ribbon it could look totally amazing....right!?


SPITBANK FORT (PORTSMOUTH).

Ok. So this one isn't so much of a beach venue!....It's a fort....A whole island at sea!
Warning!! This option may include the use of speed boats and helicopters ...Ah, that got your attention!



Underground maybe?



KENTS CAVERN (TORQUAY).

What a beautiful idea.
Candle lit cave for those of you like me, who don't like the sun or heat lol
Be sure to check out the Bears' Den option....It sounds amazing!


WOOKEY HOLE CAVES (WELLS).

Ok! It does take a moment for your eyes to adjust to the website I'll give you that.
There is, however, something magical about getting married or holding your wedding reception in a cave.
They had me ready to sign when I heard clear water pools and candle light were involved!


I hope you have enjoyed checking out some of the locations.
