You hear of the plans of fellow fiancées, who are going to get married with the beautiful backdrop of sand, sea and the setting sun. But you’re staying in the UK for your wedding … but don’t think of it as a bad thing. The beaches may not be as golden, and the weather not as warm, but there are plenty of wedding packages uk based to ensure that you have a dazzling day. Rather than going exotic, why not try eccentric? There are many venues that will make sure your guests never forget your wedding.
Nash Point Lighthouse – South Wales
If you’re looking to make your venue to high point of your big day, why not try a lighthouse? Nash Point is one of the few working lighthouses that are licensed to do weddings.

Kempton Park – Middlesex
For those who love horse racing, Kempton is perfect. It’s not all about the race track, as it’s also a great venue.

What makes it great is that you can have your wedding on a race day to have an amazing atmosphere, or not to just revel in the beauty of the venue.
Alton Towers – Staffordshire
It may be well known as a theme park, but the grounds that the rides are built around are simply breath-taking.

The big kids who are getting married can enjoy an event run smoothly by professional staff and then a day of fun at the theme park itself.
The Subterranean Lake – Cornwall
Cave weddings are becoming one of the largest trends in unique venues. In Carnglaze Caverns, the Underground Lake can hold up to 35 guests for an adventurous occasion.
