If you are desperate to say ‘I do’ but your current plans are on hold in these uncertain times, it might be time to reconsider your options. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. You can use this time to hone your wedding into a more bespoke and meaningful experience for you and your partner. This is your big day, and you only plan on doing it once, so it’s important to get it right. If you are eager to have a more unique wedding than the usual church or register office ceremony, you need to consider quirkier venues. Take a look at these unusual venues that you might want to consider for your big day.
If you are a movie buff couple, think about getting hitched in an arthouse cinema. The art deco styling of the cinema screen can create a theme for your big day. Getting married in a theatre within a cinema creates a readymade aisle and seating for your guests. Having your nearest and dearest around you in the cinema as you say your vows can be intimate in an arthouse cinema. Go with the 1920s styling, and you could have an impactful decor and vibe for your wedding. With the big screen available, you could have a montage of photos of you as a couple, or perhaps some video testimonials from your loved ones commenting on how great you are as a couple. This can make your ceremony so much more bespoke. Many arthouse cinemas open up their doors to ceremonies and are willing to cater complete with popcorn and champagne!
If you fancy an outdoor wedding, a beach can be perfect. When considering how to plan a luxury wedding, the heat of the sun, the sensation of soft sand underneath your feet and having champagne on tap can be the height of elegance. Outdoor weddings in exotic locations are luxurious but can be tailored to a very bespoke ceremony. With an official celebrant, you could have a religious or secular ceremony on the beach. A beach can create a stunning backdrop for your photographs, generating plenty of memories for your big day. If you don’t like the idea of the midday heat, a sunset ceremony can be more atmospheric and special given the landscape, scenery and temperature.
While it might not be the most thrilling destination to get married, it can be the most special. If you have lived together for a little while and you love your home, you might want to forego the big and expensive ceremony, to opt for something a little more intimate. Getting married in the garden of your home can be extra special. You can welcome your loved ones into your home to share your special day. Keeping it all in-house can save you money, and you can create a new memory for your home. You can decorate your garden with your wedding flowers, invite a documentary photographer to take some candid shots, and enjoy being in your home environment, making you feel more at ease.
