When you’re choosing your wedding venue, there’s always so much to consider. You want somewhere that complements you and your style, that gives you all the space you need and also includes all the extras that are important to you.
If, like many couples, you’re planning a civil or celebrant-led ceremony, you’ll also be looking for a ceremony space that provides a wonderful backdrop to what is sure to be the focal point of your day.
If you browse the exceptional selection of wedding venues in the Love My Dress directory, you’ll be spoilt for choice but to help you along, here are eight wonderful locations for your wedding ceremony that are sure to make the occasion even more memorable.
1. Iscoyd Park
Iscoyd Park is a true gem, an exquisite wedding venue sitting just inside the Welsh/English border. Not only are the team truly committed to giving every couple a perfect experience but the spaces available to you are beyond brilliant.
We love the light-filled ceremony space and the glorious arched windows that give a real sense of occasion. If you’re looking for a church wedding, St Mary’s is nearby and the gorgeous grounds would be idyllic for a celebrant-led service on a summer’s day.

Egton Manor is an historic country house discreetly located in the charming village of Egton Bridge and nestled on the banks of the beautiful River Esk in the North Yorkshire Moors.
The Manor itself is a beautiful Grade II listed building that was built in 1869, and lies at the heart of the 6,000 acre Egton Estate.
This is an absolute gem of wedding venue, hidden within the magical surrounds of the countryside.

Clearwell Castle really is a magnificent wedding venue in the Forest of Dean with everything you could want to give you those romantic castle wedding vibes. From a show-stopping 75ft long aisle and stately interiors to leaded windows, manicured grounds and a cocktail terrace and croquet lawn.
