There is always so much to consider when choosing your wedding venue. You want a place that compliments you and your style, gives you the space you need, and has all of the extras that are important to you.
If, like many couples, you are planning a civil or celebrity-led ceremony, look for a ceremony room that will provide a wonderful backdrop for the centerpiece of your day.
When browsing the extraordinary selection of wedding venues in the Love My Dress directory, you are spoiled for choice. To help you with that, here are eight wonderful locations for your wedding ceremony that are sure to make the occasion even more memorable.
1. Iscoyd Park
Iscoyd Park is a real gem, an exquisite wedding venue located right on the Welsh-English border. Not only is the team really committed to providing each couple with a perfect experience, but the spaces available to you are more than brilliant.
We love the light-flooded ceremony room and the magnificent arched windows that give a real occasion. If you are looking for a church wedding, St. Mary’s is close by and the beautiful grounds are ideal for a celebrity-led service on a summer day.

2. Egton Manor – North Yorkshire
Egton Manor is a historic country house discreetly situated in the charming village of Egton Bridge on the banks of the beautiful River Esk in the North Yorkshire Moors.
The manor itself is a beautiful Grade II listed building that was built in 1869 and sits in the heart of the 6,000 acre Egton Estate.
This is an absolute gem of the wedding venue, tucked away in the magical setting of the countryside.

For an intimate and secluded wedding venue with a real home-to-home feel that makes you feel warm and fuzzy from the time you arrive to the time you leave, Low Hall The Lakes must be on your shortlist. Described as “a hidden and happy little world to make your own”, you can really make this place anything you want, and it’s entirely up to you.
For ceremonies, choose your favorite spot – there is a beautiful old barn and library, or you can have a ceremony outside with a view of the Lakeland Fells or venture into the magical woods if you prefer. A really special place.

7. Clearwell Castle
Clearwell Castle really is a great wedding venue in the Forest of Dean with everything you could want to give you that romantic castle wedding vibe. From a stunning 75 foot corridor and stately interiors to lead windows, manicured grounds, and a cocktail deck and croquet lawn.
But let’s get back to your ceremony and the ballroom is a lovely setting for your vows. It has a real atmosphere and definitely gives a sense of occasion in an environment that you will never forget.
8. Old Royal Naval College
The Old Royal Naval College is a London wedding venue that will always impress. The Painted Hall is a stunning backdrop for your wedding ceremony with high ceilings, huge windows and those iconic panting walls.
There is also Admiral’s house if you want a different feel, but both ceremony venues are mind-bogglingly fabulous. If you want to make a statement and be part of the story, this is the place to say “I do”.
