YAY you're engaged! Huge congratulations! Now, once you've finished admiring your ring at every possible opportunity, you may be starting to think about planning your big day. Let the 'wedmin' commence!
A good starting point is choosing your venue. But with so many venues to choose from it can be a little overwhelming. I'm super lucky to have had the opportunity to photograph at some absolutely wonderful wedding venues, so I have put together this guide with some of my favourite and recommended wedding venues in The Midlands area. I really hope you find it useful!
Living in Rugby means I'm pretty much in the middle of England. Warwickshire is surrounded by Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Oxfordshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and also not far from Shropshire. Rugby is right on the main road network, so lots of places are easily reached. Travel within 50 miles of Rugby is included with all my packages and all these venues are within that radius, so no extra travel costs apply. I do of course travel all of over the UK - just get in touch for a millage quote if your venue is more than 50 miles from CV22.
Before you start looking for the perfect venue, it's a good idea to think about your budget. Also, make a rough guest list so you know how many people you need the venue to accommodate and think about possible 'themes' and pick a venue that suits your personalities!
If you are planning your wedding for 2019, 2020 or even 2021, I'd love to hear about your plans! 2019 is already shaping up to be a brilliant year and I have some amazing weddings booked in! I do have some availability left for the year, so if you're getting married in 2019 get in touch to see if your date is free. 2020 is proving to be a popular year too and I'm now taking bookings for 2021. Request a brochure here.
Of course, there are lots of great wedding venues in The Midlands, but these are just some of my favourites...
