Looking for somewhere a little unusual to get married?

Here are 5 of the best and most original places to get married in the UK.


1. Tunnels Beaches, Ilfracombe, North Devon

Offering unspoilt rugged coastal views, this is an stunning and unique venue for your wedding.

Access your private, secluded garden overlooking the sea and beach via hand carved tunnels through the cliffs and then take in the breath taking coastal views to Lundy Island.

You can choose to get married within a thatched gazebo overlooking the sea, with no worries about the weather.

This historic location is an ideal venue for your special day - fantastic scenery for your photos, private secluded beaches with spectacular romantic sunsets and all arranged by attentive and flexible staff.

They even have a semi-resident Seal who loves to show off in the shallows when the music is playing!!!


2. The Treehouse, Scotland

If you want a romantic and intimate wedding ceremony with just your closest friends and family then this is the venue for you.


Nestled between the shores of Loch Goil and a majestic backdrop of mountain scenery, The Lodge is an intimate luxury wedding venue in Scotland. Opulent furnishings and decor ensure the five-star venue is the perfect setting for couples and their families to enjoy their wedding celebrations. Brides can relax and luxuriate safe in the knowledge that every detail of their special day is tailored to their wishes.


3. Polhawn Fort, Cornwall

If you want a wedding venue with its own beach, then Polhawn Fort is perfect for you. Just over the River Tamar from Devon, it's only four hours from London.

The secluded venue is "yours" exclusively, for your weekend or mid-week; minimum two nights. You arrange the wedding ceremony and reception as you wish.  During extra days in your stay, enjoy relaxed walks around the headland, tennis and croquet. Bathe in the sea or just chill with friends and family. 

Hidden in a small cove on the Rame Peninsula, Polhawn Fort is untouched by the ravages of civilisation. From the moment you walk across the draw-bridge into the Fort and down the spiral staircase into the eighty foot long vaulted Hall, your wedding at Polhawn Fort is spectacular, yet intimate. Wedding ceremonies can be inside the Fort, but can also take place in the garden Summerhouse overlooking the sea. A short path with steps leads from the Fort garden to the beach. A big open log fire, central heating throughout and a cosy interior make the Fort a stunning winter setting too.


4. The Church Restaurant, Northampton

With a strong historic and cultural heritage, The Church is the oldest secular building left in Northampton. As you walk through the doors the transformation will leave you in awe – the inside has been modernized with exquisite, glittering and romantic décor.

Whether you want a small and intimate candlelit dinner for 10, or an exclusive hire with up to 250 evening guests, this unique venue is the perfect place for the most special day of your life. The dedicated and experienced management team will look to make your dreams come true at a budget that suits you.

The Church promises fabulous food freshly prepared by French Head Chef Michael, as well as spectacular service and a breath-taking backdrop – so all you need to worry about is enjoying yourself!


5. The Gherkin, London
