With three wedding celebrations there were several things I had to consider not once but three times.
Wedding One - A small affair at my family home... 90 guests. This entailed bringing everything in, Marquee, outdoor heating, electricity, catering, chairs, glassware, linen... on top of everything else that typically goes with a wedding.
Wedding Two - Having worked in events and visited a number of venues I knew that finding a space that already had the wow factor was want I needed. By choosing a place that was already set up the way I envisioned it meant that I could work with their team and concentrate on the finer details.
Wedding Three - The finale had to be an international wedding as I don't like to make things easy for myself. The extra thing we had to consider here was ease of transport, accommodation.
Here are some questions to keep in mind when choosing your wedding venue
1. What date is the venue available?
With our proposal Anaël also stated that we would get married at his home on the bank holiday weekend in August. Fortunately as this is not a holiday in France and as the son of the owner we were able to have his dream date but we still had to act fast, every other weekend that summer was already booked up. When choosing your wedding venue keep this in mind and try to be a little flexible where you can. With our London wedding we held it in April on a Sunday, which worked out perfectly for us, as we wanted a unique, beautiful indoor space for an evening celebration so if it rained it wasn’t a concern.
