Unique Wedding ideas

Have you had enough of cookie-cutter weddings and are looking for something extraordinary for your special day? Whether you’re after something endearingly quirky, wonderfully whacky or simply one of a kind, you’ll be surprised with the variety of our unique wedding venues. Dreaming of a bohemian warehouse space, lush rooftop garden or romantic riverside spot? Or perhaps you’re on the hunt for a designer loft, an atmospheric vaulted cellar or an elegant historic home. Whatever it is, we’ve got you covered. Get inspired by our cherry-picked unique wedding venues. Using smart venue search service at Tagvenue, you’ll find the perfect one in a blink of an eye.

Finding the ideal, unique wedding venue for you – what to consider:

  • Find out whether the unique venue you like has the right wedding license. Some wedding venues are licensed just for wedding ceremonies, others can only accept wedding receptions. We have also found venues that are happy to host both the reception and the civil ceremony at the same place.

  • Make sure the wedding venue has the appropriate space and the right conditions for any activities you might be planning. For example, not all venues allow fireworks, especially not the ones in central London. Of course, check if there’s enough space for dancing, too!

  • Planning a unique celebration is more than just picking a unique wedding venue. Choosing an uncommon date (ex. during earlier hours or mid-week) might be a good idea. It also helps you save money, as some wedding venues offer an off-peak discount.

  • Think of what you have in common with your significant other. Do you share the same love for British alternative music? Choose from our unique wedding venues in Camden Town or other hip districts of London. If you’re both movie lovers, how about getting hitched in a vintage cinema? The possibilities are endless, and with Tagvenue finding the best option is as easy as 1-2-3.

Unique wedding venues in London – Tagvenue favourites:

  • Wedding with a view – Not many cities can boast a skyline as stunning as London’s. If you’re throwing your unique wedding party in the capital, then why miss the opportunity to enjoy a view to remember? This choice will leave your guests talking for months.

  • Secret gardens - Tie the knot surrounded by finches, quails, exotic fish and more than 2,000 species of tropical plants and trees, then celebrate in the adjoining Garden Suite, which has fantastic views of the city and the Barbican Lakes. All this is possible in the Barbican, a tropical oasis tucked away in the heart of the city. This is one of the most magical places to say ‘I do’ in London.
  • Industrial vibe – Forget regular wedding venues, think outside the box and pick something truly unusual. Many industrial spaces have the right space and acoustics to host wedding receptions and ceremonies. Want to customise the space? Add some creative decor to top it all off.

  • Pub weddings – If tying the knot in a less formal setting is what you’re after, a unique pub wedding is a right choice for you. Such wedding venues are usually located in very photogenic neighbourhoods, which is brilliant for your wedding photos, too! If you prefer a pint over a glass of wine, the choice is obvious.

Here at Tagvenue, we’re sure to have something that’ll charm your special guests. And the best part? It’s quick and easy to search, so you can find a unique or unusual wedding venue in a snap.
