Finding the perfect wedding location can be difficult, which is why we’re here to help…
One brides idea of the perfect wedding, is often another’s nightmare … There is no mistaking that every bride and groom to be, has their very own definition of the ‘perfect’ wedding location! One may have dreamt of the fairy tale wedding, all horse drawn carriages and palace venue, (think Disney style) whilst another may have dreamt of tying the knot barefoot on a sandy beach, with flower crowns and a makeshift marquee. What I am trying to say, is there is no one perfect wedding, as they say, ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’.
With that in mind, here at Seen In The City, we know the stresses that ensue when in search of the ultimate wedding venue, from manor houses to barn conversions and skyscrapers, there are so many options to pick from, whether it’s classic to quirky, simple to extravagant, it’s daunting and often people find themselves asking, Where do I start? Where to look? What options are there? Don’t panic, we’ve put together a selection of fabulous UK venues… Whether you decide one of these is the one, or we’ve just shed some light on the task of venue picking … Our job here is done!
