Reasons to Get Married in Nottinghamshire
Congratulations to everyone who’s just gotten engaged! If you’re beginning to plan your wedding – or are months into it and still can’t decide on a venue – we’ve got you covered. At Pink Wedding Venues, we’ve compiled a list of all the best gay-friendly wedding venues, and they’re nicely organised into counties. All you have to do is pick your favourite! To make this process even easier, we’ve written blogs with all the reasons to get married in each county, so you can decide which one is best for you. If you haven’t got your heart set on somewhere, why not consider Nottinghamshire?
Affectionately known as Notts, Nottinghamshire is a county in the East Midlands, sandwiched between South Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire. Due to its location, it’s ideal for anyone who’s keen to tie the knot up North, but still wants somewhere that’s fairly accessible. Nottinghamshire is a county steeped in history, linking way back to Roman times, with several Roman settlements being based there. Since then, it has been key in British history – even being linked to Robin Hood!
As a county, it’s full of beautiful countryside, but also has a fair few cities, meaning there is something for everyone no matter what type of wedding you want to host. So, at the end of the day, it all comes down to what type of wedding you’re after. If you’re after a glitzy affair with 500 guests, you’ll be pleased to know there are a number of stunning stately homes in which you can tie the knot, located in Nottinghamshire. Fancy something cosier, with a rustic vibe? Nottingham’s got you covered again, with a range of venues that offer bespoke weddings to fit your every need. Don’t want to stray too far from the city? Don’t worry, there are inner city venues to choose from – with great connections for transporting guests to the big day.
Still not sure if Nottinghamshire is the right place to tie the knot, or need some good conversation prompts for the big day? Check out our fun facts about it!

2. Also in Worksop, you can visit a real-life time capsule! Mr Straw’s house has been largely untouched since the 1920s, so tourists can delve into what life was like nearly 100 years ago.
3. The biggest antique fair in Europe is held in Newark. It is held a whopping six times a year!
4. Every literary fan knows about D.H. Lawrence – but did you know he was born and raised in Eastwood?
