Alternative Wedding Venue Ideas

They say ‘variety is the spice of life’, and this is very true. These days there are just so many cool and quirky Wedding venue options to choose from, and as professional Wedding musicians, we relish the opportunity to perform in unusual settings. Its not like “back in t’day ” where your only option was to get married at the local Church, followed by a party at the Village Hall, with your Uncle Colin playing the role of barman. Times have certainly changed, but by just how much? Lets see…

In this Blog we look at a fabulous selection of alternative Wedding venue ideas. We love playing at unique Wedding venues with our acoustic duo. So much so, we’ve popped a song suggestion from our current Wedding Duo repertoire in each section, to really help bring the Wedding setting to life!
So, which type of alternative Wedding venue would you choose? Lets explore the options together…


Wow! Imagine soft sand between your toes and saying “I Do” with the perfect sea view. You could even combine your alternative Wedding venue with your Honeymoon destination.
