Choosing wedding reception venues is never an easy thing to do. It plays such an important part in the day, and let's face it, these days the choice is huge! This article takes a closer look at wedding reception venues and highlights some key things to focus on as you look to draw up a shortlist for your dream big day destination.

Rather than using a scattergun approach to whittle away the number of wedding reception venuesyour first task should always be to sit down with your partner and draw up a short-list of potential candidates. To some this may seem and easy thing to do, but for others knowing just where to begin can prove tricky. However, if you focus on the following three key factors when looking to number down your options, then things should start to become a lot more straightforward...




Wedding Reception Venue Licensing

First things first, if you're not looking to hold your ceremony and wedding reception all in the same venue, then don't waste your time hanging around here - instead, move onto our 'Wedding Reception Venue Location' section instead.


Assuming you are still reading this, then one thing you need to be fully aware of up front is that you don't have a completely free choice. In fact, there are a great number of wedding reception venues in the UK capable of hosting such occasions that aren't in posession of a civil ceremony license. This means that whilst you may love the thought of having all of the wedding at a nearby castle, if it isn't on the list of approved premisies, then your wedding ceremony will need to be held elsewhere.

Another thing to know at this stage is that wedding reception venues can be added to, or removed from, the 'approved premises list' at any time. This means that the list can, and does, change on a very regular basis.


So how can you find out which premises have been granted a license?


One of the best ways to find this out is to contact your local Register Office - they will be able to advise just what your options are and who you need to contact.

Alternatively, online wedding directories (such as the one on Weddingsday) hold a comprehensive database of wedding reception venues that are in posession of a civil ceremony license, although we can't stress enough that these do change very regularly!

Your ultimate port of call of course should be the venue itself. Most will outline on their website what capacity they have as a venue, but if not a simple call should solve everything.

Wedding Reception Venue Location

The location of wedding reception venues will naturally be of huge importance to all couples, regardless of whether they are heading down the civil ceremony route or tying the knot in a religious service.


For those wanting a civil wedding or partnership in an approved premise, the venue choice is pretty extensive with no real limitations on location. With this in mind, it is sufficent at this stage to simply have a geographic area in mind, and as this is purely down to personal preference, this isn't something we'll be able to help you on!
