Gay-Friendly / Same-Sex / LGBTQ Wedding Venues in Derbyshire
Reasons to Get Married in Derbyshire
Getting engaged is undoubtedly one of the most exciting times of your life, so congrats! It’s so easy to get bogged down with wedding stress, and at times it feels like you have a million things to do. Cake sampling, colour scheme matching, guestlist composing… it can all get a bit chaotic, and that’s before the day even arrives! At Pink Wedding Venues, we’re on hand to help reduce that chaos. We’ve compiled a list of all the top gay-friendly wedding venues in the UK, so when it comes to choosing a venue that celebrates same-sex marriages, we’ve got you covered. All you have to do is pick the county, and then choose your favourite venue. Have you considered Derbyshire?
Nestled in the East Midlands, Derbyshire is truly magical. A large part of the Peak District is located in Derbyshire: in fact, a large portion of the county is made up entirely of the Peak District, so you can imagine how beautiful it is! Picture a postcard image of a countryside scene – that’s Derbyshire. The gorgeous greenery makes the ideal backdrop for wedding photos, and the number of trees means you can fully go to town when it comes to a colour theme – imagine how gorgeous an Autumn wedding would be surrounded by golden trees, or a Spring wedding covered with blossom?! If a countryside wedding in a manor house - with all the trimmings – is what you’ve got your heart set on, Derbyshire is the perfect choice for you.
It’s not all manor houses and stately homes, though. If you want something modern, there are slick hotels to choose from, where you can sip cocktails and nibble canapes in the height of luxury. Derbyshire is also home to some unique venues. Those who want a waterside wedding are well catered for, as are anyone who wants an outdoors wedding. If your ideal wedding day involves breath-taking views and scenery like no other, then make sure you check out the magical venues that this county has to offer.
Still not sure if Derbyshire is right for you, or need something to convince the other half? Check out our fun facts about it here!
1. We’ve already mentioned its beauty, but did you know that the Peak District was the first National Park in England?
2. The world’s biggest bowl of popcorn was created in Derbyshire in 1991. Incidentally, popcorn makes a really cute snack to serve whilst guests arrive…
3. We love a gorgeous stately home, but few are as icon as the (fictitious) Pemberley estate. Owned by Mr Darcy in Pride and Prejudice, the house was set in Derbyshire.
4. If you love exploring, you’ll have a great time in Derbyshire. The county has seven ‘show caves’ in which you can see a fascinating underground world. Definitely worth a visit!
