The festive period is one of the most popular times of the year to pop the question and if you are one of those lucky ones, congratulations! Now the fun of planning your big day can begin, and usually one the first things a couple will consider is the venue. You may already have an idea of the type of wedding you would like, whether it be a rustic country wedding, or an elegant hotel wedding.

Trawl the internet, blogs, wedding magazines and as many other sources of inspiration as you can to get a feel for what sort of venue you would like and what you can get for your budget. You may uncover a hidden gem if you dig a little deeper as well! Once you have created a ‘favourites’ list, arrange viewings to see the venues in person.
