Finding the perfect wedding venue can be a difficult task, particularly when we realise that hotel function rooms often lack the magic that we hope for. Unusual wedding venues are the perfect option to create intrigue and excitement around your big day. The venue is the biggest decision you will make during your planning, so it is important to find one that fascinates you from the moment you enter and leaves your guests talking long after it has finished.
Elegant Wedding Venues proudly present a number of the UK’s most unusual destinations. From fun-filled zoos to historic landmarks, there is something to suit all personalities and interests.
Beaulieu in Hampshire is set in the enchanting New Forest and is home to the National Motor Museum. For those with an interest in cars, there is no question that this is the venue for you. The museum can accommodate up to 150 people for a wonderfully unusual wedding breakfast.
Our two fantastic zoos: Edinburgh Zoo and Bristol Zoo Gardens are a dream for animal-lovers. Bristol Zoo Gardens offers the opportunity to host drinks receptions in the animal houses, interact with the tame species at the zoo and even the option to visit Zooropia, where guests can swing alongside gibbons, gorillas and lemurs. Edinburgh Zoo offers private Giant Panda viewings, a rare opportunity that is not to be missed!
Feel like royalty at Leeds Castle in Kent, as you wed in a fantastic destination that is described as ‘the loveliest castle in the world.’ Its history dates back over 900 years, but what makes it truly unusual are the activities on site for guests to enjoy: a scenic golf course, falconry experiences, Go Ape, and even a Segway tour!
