    Hello Ladies,

    I am getting married in 2015, uncertain of the date yet but we know we want our venue and honeymoon to be unique!

    Is anyone else planning on getting married in a unique venue or even a different country?!

    Please let me know, ideas are needed haha!

    Lauren! :D :D XXX

    I'm near Manchester :) Got married in 2011 - time has flown by since then!

    So are you thinking of getting married abroad?

    We got married in Canada, my cousin got married in Thailand, we both had small weddings but big UK receptions afterwards. We both had amazing times and really recommend getting married abroad and having a reception back here, that way you get two days!

    There are a few interesting venues about in the UK too, lots of places like museums and caves now have places you can get married as well as places like National Trust properties and big houses and castles. Some of them are very expensive to hire so it does depend on your budget :)

    If you're in the midlands then Gloucester shouldn't be too far and therefore, neither should this place: ELmore Court

    I think we are going to take it for September 2015 as well. They are such nice helpful people and what they have to offer is unique. Check out the specialised venue part out the back... its called The GillyFlower. They can do all sorts of things and are very open minded if you want to do something different with the space.

    hope that helps! x

    I'd love to get married abroad, although I have no idea where to look or even where to start. So any pointers would be fab :)

    Once we decided to go abroad we then narrowed it down by choosing countries where you can have outdoor weddings (as that is what we really wanted). Then we decided we wanted the ceremony in English, not another language so that narrowed it further. Then we just chose what we fancied from that list and we both chose the same!

    We are getting married in treehouse, located just 22 miles from seattle, Wash. In fact we are very much excited to say "I do" on the forest floor and want to strung together with wooden bridges. It will be our unique wedding venue. You can also choose this type of unique venue for your wedding. :wub:

    I considered a tree house after reading about one. It was just the practicality of getting older guests up the steps!

    We looked at getting married at Alnwick Gardens or Bamburgh Castle. I know they are far from you but somewhere like that. They are amazing, just a bit costly depending on your budget x
