Today I have been to a wedding of a close friend. But not in a Church (or one of the most amazing churches), and it wasn’t a registry office wedding! No, this was in his back garden. I am no expert on the costs of decent wedding venues, but surely there are better places to get married than your own back garden and it was not like he had a big garden to accommodate us all. If I was in charge of the venue I might have picked one of these…
Ten of the Craziest, Strangest and Most Unusual Wedding Venues
10 – Aquarium
Now we are talking! With the feeling you get from being in an aquarium being one of happiness it seems rather fitting to have your big day in one as well. Then off to a reception hall close by for some fish dinners. (Or maybe just a drink or two.)
9 – Skyscraper
While it does have the rather unfortunate name of “The Gherkin” nothing can take away the amazing views of London that it offers. Plenty of room for everyone and more than enough event rooms to host whatever reception and party you want.
8 – Woodland
While at first, it might seem kind of silly having a wedding in the middle of a forest, I think there is something rather wonderful and enchanted about it. Plus if you look clearly at the image there is a nice lake in the background to have a party around after it as well.
7 – Bridge
This amazing wedding event hall is not some fancy new-age building, this is Tower bridge in London made way back in 1886! With amazing views, a unique and very unusual venue for sure, and one that people will remember for a long time to come.
6 – Bus
This is “The Crazy Bear” in Stadhampton and they have several strange and amazing places to get married, but none more so strange than inside a reception bus! Why to arrive at a wedding in a bus when you could have it inside of it! Not a bad venue at all.
5 – Underwater
Not one for me because I can’t swim. But I do understand how amazing an underwater wedding could be, but what are the odds of everyone you invite to the wedding being able to scuba dive? Good idea, but not very practical.
4 – Wine and Dine
Why not have a wedding and reception inside an old wine cellar or maybe even a cave! The dark and echo style of the venue will add some much needed unique atmosphere and is sure to be a wedding to remember.
3 – Boat
Not only a very cool venue but often this can double up because more often than not the captains of many a cruise ship will have a marriage licence meaning he can marry you! Just make sure that all guests and indeed Bride and Groom have their sea legs.
2 – Bungee
While it is not for everyone having a wedding at a venue that offers bungee jumps it is still a wedding venue to remember. But wearing the right kind of clothes and indeed underpants is essential if you are going to do this.
1 – Rocks
While most marriages end up on the rocks, this one started off on them! I have to say that looking at this my friends back garden wedding venue doesn’t seem so bad after all, and it really was a dry day (if a little cold) and he really does love his new wife a lot which makes it all worthwhile no matter where it was.
