In the process of organizing your wedding, you may find it necessary to think about civil wedding venues. Bearing in mind a few aspects will help you to determine which option is right for you.

In the first instance, it will be necessary to consider whether it is actually possible to hold a wedding at the venue that you desire. If you want the wedding ceremony to take place in a location a little more special or unique than a town hall or county court, you will need to make sure that weddings are allowed there. Licences are required by venues to permit them to carry out weddings so you must ensure they have the relevant authorization in place.

In addition to requiring permission, many civil ceremony wedding venues will be limited to hosting only a specific number of wedding ceremonies per year. Bear this in mind when considering different venues to ensure that the venue will be available on the date of your wedding.

The cost of hiring the wedding venue will vary greatly depending on the actual location and whether the ceremony will cause disruption to any existing business that takes place there. You are likely to find that you are able to get a better deal if your wedding date is not within a period traditionally known as a wedding season.

Be aware that there will be certain limits and rules that you will need to abide by in order to use certain locations as a civil wedding venue, so you must ensure that this will not interfere with the wedding. For example, you are unlikely to be able to throw confetti of any kind at a zoo and a marquee will not be able to be erected on a football pitch.
