There are lots of places in which to hold a traditional wedding ceremony. You can go full-on traditional with a church or lovely old building, or perhaps a hotel or hall for something more modern, but what if you are looking for somewhere more unusual – an unexpected place to get married? This article covers a few of the more unusual places to tie the knot in the Somerset area.
Ancient and historic
Most of us have heard of Wookey Hole, with thousands of us visiting there every year to look around the impressive caves, but did you know that you can hold your wedding ceremony on site? You can exchange you vows in a choice of caves, including the cave featured in Doctor Who – but watch out for the witch!
If you would like somewhere historic to hold your wedding ceremony, what about the Roundhouse Gaol at Castle Cary? For an intimate service, this small cylindrical lock up, built in 1779, could be just the spot. At just seven feet wide, it will be a bit of a tight squeeze; however, it is certainly a unique place to take your vows.
What about the Roman Baths and Pump Room in the historic city of Bath? Slip back to an ancient time with a sunrise or sunset wedding on the edge of the steaming bath waters. This is an amazing place for the service and you will end the day with some very unique wedding photographs.
Taunton venue hire
You could get married in style at The Castle Hotel in Taunton, while fans of flora could plump for somewhere such as Hestercombe House and Gardens. A venue such as http://www.countygroundtaunton.co.uk/ is another interesting and different option if you would like to hold your big day in the capital of the county.
When you are considering your venue options, Somerset County Council helpfully has a list of all the approved venues in the area on its website for you to peruse at your leisure.
Whatever type of wedding ceremony or celebration you are planning, Somerset has many beautiful, stylish and unusual venue options from which couples can choose when they are planning their big day, ensuring you end up with nothing but wonderful wedding memories.
