Your Ceremony at your Reception Venue
Many couples are choosing to have their marriage ceremony at the same venue as their wedding reception. This can make your planning easier and save you and your guests travel time. Why not have everything in the one place, from the marriage ceremony to picturesque photograph opportunities, to a divine wedding reception? This can be a little more expensive, however the benefit is a less stressful wedding day leaving you and your family to enjoy the celebration.
Here's a rough guide on what you may need to discuss with a venue before making a booking:
In most localities there is a church, school or local authority hall available for hire.
For a small wedding you may choose a canape’ catered reception in a creative and arty space. Why not hire a local art gallery or listed heritage building? Alternatively, a fantastic idea could be a country retreat, renting the rooms too so that your select few guests can enjoy a long weekend as well as the wedding.
A garden wedding can be a great alternative to a larger venue and less expensive too. Quiet and intimate in a beautiful setting. It is advisable to make sure that you have some cover; a marquee or even inside the house. There are a great many exclusive holiday homes that can act as both the wedding venue and the reception venue.
You can book a venue such as a reception centre, function room, restaurant, resort, club, cruise, or other venue type that will do all the organizing for you, or you can manage everything yourself and source a venue, caterers, flowers, equipment hire, entertainment, etc, or anything in between. The choice is yours and we are here to help you.
