Weddings are all about garnering memories that can be remembered and cherished forever. Getting married in a venue that’s a little less ‘run of the mill’ than traditional church and registry office venues can certainly help craft a magical and memorable wedding. If you’re looking to tie the knot in a quirky location, the following nine most unusual places to get married might give you the inspiration you’re looking for.
1. Themed castle weddings
If you’ve always dreamt of a fairy-tale wedding, where you are the princess and the groom is the prince, getting married in a castle will certainly fulfil your wedding dreams. Why not add a quirky twist to your castle wedding by making it a themed castle wedding? From recreating a dramatic scene from Harry Potter to crafting a modern adaptation of a Disney classic, having a themed wedding in an imposing castle location will certainly garner the invigorating, memorable wedding you are looking for!
2. A beach wedding
With the sun on your face, soft sand underfoot and the sound of the waves gently lapping on the shore, there is something incredibly romantic about getting married in a beach location. What’s particularly appealing about a beach wedding, is the fact that apart from the surf, sun and sand, all you need is a few chairs, a couple of witnesses, someone who is qualified to marry people, and you’re almost there!
3. Get married whilst bungee jumping
Not for the faint-hearted that’s for sure, but if you aspire to have an adrenaline-filled, ultra-unique wedding, and you have a penchant for bungee jumping, why not tie the knot with your loved one whilst hurtling through the sky on a bungee cord?
It’s been done before and it will be done again, couples getting married on a bungee jump platform before plummeting 130ft on the same bungee cord! Definitely one to tell the grandchildren!
4. Married under water
From soaring with the birds to swimming with the fish, why not take the plunge and get married under water? Equipped with a mask and scuba unit, saying ‘I do’ underwater is perfect for divers, surfers, snorkelers, or anyone who loves the ocean and wants a wedding that is truly unique and invigorating. Can you imagine the cheer from friends and family waiting on the shore and you and your partner emerge from the water as a married couple?
5. A wedding in a cave
Being surrounded by beautiful rock formations, enchanting chambers and an atmospheric glow lit up by flickering candlelight, cave weddings are magical, memorable and romantic. If you plan on inviting a lot of guests, make sure the cave is big enough to fit them all in!
6. Submarine ceremonies
If a mask and snorkel doesn’t tickle your fancy but saying your vows amongst the fish does, you may want to consider tying the knot in a submarine. These one-of-a-kind wedding ceremonies can be tailored to your individual wedding requirements. For example, one submarine wedding firm in the Barbados can accommodate up to 48 guests in one submarine!
7. A vineyard location
If you and your partner are self-confessed wine lovers, a vineyard wedding might be on the cards! As well as having top-notch wine on tap, vineyards are often situated within stunning natural surroundings, providing a beautiful and romantic backdrop for a wine-inspired marriage ceremony.
8. Get wed in a tipi
Tipis are another romantic yet unusual place to have a wedding. Getting married and celebrating the occasion in a giant tipi will certainly provide a unique and memorable alternative to a traditional wedding. As tipi weddings are becoming more popular, there’s plenty of tantalising tipi sites in the UK alone to take your pick from.
9. A woodland wedding
Being able to say your vows under the boughs of trees as the sunlight trickles through the leaves, having a striking woodland wedding is unique for many reasons. Why not turn your woodland wedding into a themed occasion, such as woodland fairies with treehouse accommodation?
