MY TOP UK ALTERNATIVE WEDDING VENUES
Just before we start I would like to tell you. I am obsessed with finding unique places, rustic cute cafes, secret restaurants, oldy worldly pubs in the middle of no-where, with artisan food and great atmosphere. So as you can guess, atmosphere as well as design is everything for me. This approach I use when picking my favourite alternative, quirky or just super beautiful wedding venues. If you are at the beginning of your wedding planning journey and you are non-traditional couple looking for something different, you will definitely find the following interesting :)
UNIQUE AND QUIRKY FARMS
There are many beautiful Farms venues, however I wanted to show you the ones that are really pretty as well as new or they simply caught my eye visually. They have a ‘Raw Rustic’ feel, with endless opportunities to use the space in a different ways ( indoor/outdoor)
A year ago I photographed wedding in The Tree Pools , I was the first to photograph wedding at that venue . It was like a dream location. Very raw and rustic with lots of outdoor buildings. The Farm is run by a few young and talented friends that wanted to create more of the community space for people to enjoy. It is simply beautiful.
- There is a big farm house and a few outdoor buildings.
- Pond, fields and forest
- There is camping on the farm for guest to stay.
- Farm House for a few guests
The venue can fit up to 50-150 people. Great for intimate or larger weddings. Very friendly, creative atmosphere . The space is so versatile you can get really creative with it. Click here to see The Three Pool Farm
I found this wedding venue by chance browsing on Instagram. The architecture of the barn is so unique. It reminds me of an American ranch looking over a lake. The capacity is for 100 people. It can be great for smaller intimate weddings as well as slightly larger weddings.
