Event Venues, Resorts and Marquee Hire

Just because you are getting married doesn't mean you have to tie the knot in a church. Destination weddings overseas have become increasingly popular, and at home you can get married on the beach, in a garden, a castle, barn or many other unusual venues.

Different Wedding Venues

Many couples just don't want to get married in a church, often because they aren't especially religious, but also it can often seem old fashioned and unappealing. And many churches just can't accommodate the large number of guests. Increasingly popular is the concept of literally getting married in your own back garden, often to save money and to make it a lot easier for older family members and friends to attend. Given the unreliable British weather you may need to get a marquee for the occasion and marquee for hire in birmingham, London, Manchester and other UK cities have plenty of options. But if you are looking for something different, UK wedding venues include barns, stately homes, castles and palaces, as well as the beach. However, you can also get married in such unique places as a treehouse, submarine, windmill, lighthouse and aquarium. In London, couples can get married on HMS Belfast, at the top of the Gherkin, and at Borough market.

Destination Weddings

Also increasingly popular are destination weddings, which means getting married somewhere overseas, often in a resort or exotic location. This type of ceremony is not only popular with younger couples with a sense of adventure and looking for something out of the ordinary, but also with older couples who have been married before and don't want a church wedding the second time. A destination wedding can actually save you money, as many hotels and resorts around the world specialize in wedding packages, including accommodation, meals and airfare as well as the ceremony itself. Most destinations will also take care of the paperwork and any local regulations or requirements. You can also save time and trouble by getting married and spending your honeymoon in the same place. Destination weddings also tend to limit the number of guests attending, which some couples see as a benefit, as not everyone on your guest list wants to travel or can afford to do so. Popular destinations for this type of ceremony include Mexico, the Bahamas, Hawaii, Florida and Italy; if you really want somewhere exotic, you may want to consider India, Tahiti, the Maldives or the Seychelles.
