I've only ever been to one wedding on a pier. It was my cousin Harry, who married the beautiful Holly on Southwold Pier nearly 8 years ago. It was a truly lovely affair and I have always been drawn to Pier Weddings ever since. We've got an absolutely fabulous one listed on the site, and it's big!
Grand Pier in Weston Super Mare was orginally opened in 1904
It doesn't look like this anymore - it burnt down completely a few years ago, so this building is brand new and marvellous, offering number of versatile rooms suitable for civil ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and evening receptions. The panoramic views, as you would image, are breathtaking.
One of our loveliest venues has an open day this bank holiday Monday. You'll be able to seee this charming Edwardian-era country house and discuss your wedding plans over a glass of champagne.
Poundon House is set within beautifully landscaped grounds, and is available for hire on an exclusive basis. Lovingly restored to its original splendour, this Oxfordshire gem features nine bedrooms, three large reception rooms, a handsome library and an intimate wood-paneled study. Designed in the classical Queen Anne-style, the house is an ideal setting to celebrate your wedding. The house is situated in open countryside with far-reaching views across towards Waddesdon. And while the house may be situated in splendid isolation, it is easily accessible from all directions. Poundon is only a little over an hour away from London and Birmingham by car ; just an hour away from Heathrow airport; a mere ten mins from Bicester Village outlet shopping centre; and the culture and heritage of Oxford is only 30 minutes away.
The Southbank is one of our absolutely favourite parts of London and so when, last year, the Southbank Centre decided to celebrate the fact that same-sex marriage became legal, and created the Big Wedding Weekend, we were extremely excited. 70 couples - gay and straight, young and old - got married or renewed their vows in what was an amazing weekend for everyone.
And as it was such an incredible success, that they are going to do it again!
