Beautiful Spots for a Destination Wedding around the UK

Guests Throwing Confetti Over Bride And GroomIt’s the best day of your life together. It’s what many young girls and boys dream about since they first learn exactly what a ‘wedding’ is.

But everyone’s doing it. Our friends and family are tying the knot on a monthly basis and to be honest, all of the events look the same. Cute country churches, marquees in a field and stately homes are all well and good but how do you make your perfect day a day to remember?

Gone is the day when a buffet and a free bar is enough to ensure your guests as well as you and your partner have the time of your lives, but there is a way to make your wedding as creative and individual as your relationship.

So without further ‘I do’, here are three breathtaking wedding venues that will make your day really special.

If it’s an urban wedding with a modern twist that you’re looking for, then Battersea Power Station is the venue for you.

The view of London’s finest landmarks is breathtaking, especially when you peer through the floor-to-ceiling windows. A summer wedding would certainly benefit from the lawn and decking on the terrace.

It’s a blank space for you to do with whatever you like, so be as creative as you want to be, while your guests can sleep off the festivities in one of our London hotels.

A very Jurassic wedding

If you’re a big Jurassic Park fan, or just have a penchant for the dramatic, then the Great North Museum in Newcastle is for you.

Say your vows in the shadow of a T Rex or kiss the bride among the ancient Egyptian artefacts – it’s up to you.

With every room in the building licensed, you can mix and match the ceremony and reception as you see fit. And of course our Newcastle hotels offer the perfect place for you and your guests to base yourself during and after the nuptials.

A wee dram

Like a tipple? Want a Scottish wedding? Edinburgh’s Scotch Whiskey Experience can help you combine the two.

You can celebrate in and among the world’s biggest collection of whiskey, under a Swarovski crystal chandelier. The venue will even put on a traditional Scottish ceremony and reception if you’re that way inclined.

Our hotels in Edinburgh are the ideal place to lay your head after testing all that whiskey, while the city itself is a beautiful and romantic place to get hitched.
