The UK is blessed with a whole host of magical wedding venues, and with lockdowns easing and the prospect of big, beautiful weddings making a comeback, plenty of couples choosing to remarry are busily trying to find the best venue for them. On average, venue hire was the greatest outgoing for UK couples according to the Hitched 2019 National Wedding Survey, so choosing the right one matters. To help, we’ve brought together some particularly special venues to provide inspiration for what’s out there.
What to check before remarrying
If you want to remarry you must also be legally able to, so be extra sure your divorce proceedings are in order before you wed. There are a number of different legal and financial matters you and a divorce solicitor will want to consider and go over with a fine-tooth comb to ensure that your divorce is final, but once you have gone through all of these and agreed that remarriage is something that you want to do, it’s then time to decide on a budget, how many guests you want to invite (this will influence the size of the venue), and the sort of surroundings you want to be wed in. All that’s left then, is to find a venue!
Palm House, Liverpool
Located in Liverpool’s pretty Sefton Park is the Palm House, a Grade-II-listed Victorian greenhouse home to 200 rare and beautiful plants. Brilliantly lit and airy, the venue offers a one-of-a-kind atmosphere, rain or shine, and the building’s large central area offers plenty of room for large ceremonies and receptions.
Carlton Towers, Goole
Epic in every single way, Carlton Towers’ soaring state rooms are the perfect location for remarrying couples wanting to put a stately stamp on their special day. Able to accommodate hundreds of guests, this 17th-century mansion, surrounded by hundreds of acres of picturesque parkland, is a fantastically decadent choice that will be remembered for all the right reasons.
Alnwick Garden Treehouse, Northumberland
Surround yourself with nature with a wedding held at the Alnwick Garden Treehouse in Alnwick, Northumberland. A slightly topsy-turvy location filled with woodland character and sparkle of fairy magic, the Treehouse can accommodate a few hundred guests across its various function rooms and comes with fun features like rope bridges and treetop views.
Don’t let the family-friendly name fool you; Barnutopia in Shropshire is one of the best locations in the UK for a festival-style wedding. Set amidst stunning British countryside – woods, fields, and rolling hills – the venue is particularly suited to summer, and offers fantastic glamping for guests staying the night.
Chicheley Hall, Buckinghamshire
If you’re searching for Pride-and-Prejudice-style surroundings for your big day, look no further than Chicheley Hall near Milton Keynes. A Grade-I-listed building steeped in elegance, each room in the venue is like stepping back to the 1700s, and outside, manicured gardens make for uniquely gorgeous wedding photography.
