Gay-Friendly / Same-Sex / LGBTQ Wedding Venues in Northamptonshire
Reasons to Get Married in Northamptonshire
Congratulations – you’re getting married! Once you’ve finally told everyone the news, and settled into engaged life, you’ll need to start thinking about the wedding venue. While wedding planning can be stressful, at Pink Wedding Venues we aim to reduce some of the stress, by compiling a list of all the best gay-friendly wedding venues in the UK. This means no more stressing about whether or not your venue will be accepting of your love – all you need to do is pick your fave! In order to make it even easier, we’ve arranged them into counties. If you’re unsure of which one you want to pick, why not choose Northamptonshire?
Northamptonshire might not spring to mind when you first picture your wedding venue, but it is actually a very beautiful place. Nestled in the East Midlands, it borders Warwickshire to the west, Leicestershire and Rutland to the north, Cambridgeshire to the east, Bedfordshire to the south-east, Buckinghamshire to the south, Oxfordshire to the south-west and Lincolnshire to the north-east. This means if you live in any of the neighbouring counties, it will be really easy for you to get there! Aside from practicalities, it is a stunning place, full of quaint villages, green spaces, and classy stately homes. There really is a huge range of venues, meaning you can find the perfect wedding venue to match your relationship.
For example, if you are a ‘champagne and caviar’ couple, there are a range of gorgeous manor houses that you can choose to tie the knot in. Imagine this: stepping out of a manor that’s straight out of Downton, arm-in-arm with your loved one, while your family and friends look on sipping champers. Sounds like a perfect day, right? If you fancy something more low-key, how about saying your vows at a country spa? It’s perfect for relaxing, and the ideal place to begin your honeymoon! There’s also a selection of hotels, golf clubs and countryside retreats, so no matter what you’re after, Northamptonshire has it.
If you’re still not convinced, check out our list of interesting facts about Northamptonshire:
