Unusual and Unique Wedding Venues – 5 of the best!

Here is our suggestions for 5 of the best Unusual and Unique wedding Venues from across the uk.

Not every bride and groom want the classic wedding package. For some, the uniqueness of their relationship requires something really special in the way of a wedding day – that’s why we at The Wedding Directory have put together a list of some of our favourites. Take a look at some truly unique wedding venues.

Carnglaze Caverns

Cornwall’s most romantic wedding venue, and almost certainly the only underground one, offers not one but four remarkable places to host your civil ceremony or civil partnership.  The first is inside the Rum Store Cavern, an underground wedding space that hosts up to 400 and has an amazing 80 metre aisle. The second is the intimate Underground Lake, which is a candlelit venue which offers a romantic atmosphere for 35 guests. Then there’s The Enchanted Dell, an outside space for 50 guests, nestled in a stunning ancient woodland and finally The Vine Conservatory which, as its name suggests, is a vine-clad building in glorious surroundings, with a fabulous view over the Loveny Valley.

Yurt Camp

For the perfect outdoor wedding, Yurt Camp in Liverton, Devon is a gorgeously laid-back venue, with forty acres of woodland in which bride and groom can enjoy a civil ceremony in a yurt, followed by a wonderful wedding breakfast and evening reception. Carefully chosen and sensitively built structures such as the barn and giant tipi, as well as elegant and luxurious yurts for wedding guests to stay in, make this wedding location not just unusual but also environmentally friendly.

Llancaiach Fawr Manor

The South Wales valleys are always romantic, and Llancaiach Fawr Manor is perfectly located in this picturesque landscape, offering a peaceful, history-steeped location for a special wedding day. With a range of beautiful rooms on offer, this Tudor venue makes every wedding or civil ceremony special. The Great Hall of the Manor is ideal for a candlelit ceremony, while the oak panelled parlour with its 17th century furnishings is perfect for an intimate wedding. There’s also

the light and airy Visitor Centre in the Conservatory or the Mansell Hall which seats 120, both of which are licensed for civil ceremonies.

Bluebell Railway

Possibly one of the most unusual wedding locations you can imagine, and also one of the most British, the Bluebell Railway is perfect for nostalgia buffs, trainspotters and – of course – fans of The Railway Children! With licensed ceremony spaces in the Birch Grove Suite at Sheffield Park Station or in the Waiting Room on the platform at Horsted Keynes Station, this is an unforgettable wedding venue. And it doesn’t end there – you can host your reception  actually onboard ‘The Golden Arrow’, a glorious 1920’s dining train, with every luxury from that era of style and flair.

Paradise Wildlife Park

Want to get married on safari? Well the closest thing to that in the UK is probably Paradise Wildlife Park, with big cats and primates, reptiles, birds and farmyard animals all on parade.  For over thirty years this family business has been giving families an unforgettable day and today this includes every kind of wedding celebration from traditional white weddings to same sex celebrations and vow renewals. What makes Paradise Wildlife Park so special is the extras they offer – on top of an amazing wedding day, bride, groom and guests can have a complimentary visit to the park or some of the smaller and cuter animals can actually come and meeting the wedding guests!
