Approved venue weddings

Why a wedding at an approved venue could be for you.

Why choose an approved venue for your wedding?

Beautiful venues
With over 130 approved venues across Suffolk, we're sure to have a venue for every style and budget. From grand to boutique. Most of our venues have excellent transport links to London, Cambridge and the North, making Suffolk the ideal wedding destination!
Personalised wedding
Put your stamp on your wedding. Write your own vows and readings, include bespoke touches with personal meaning or even go for a fancy-dress themed wedding! Our experienced celebrants are on hand to assist with your planning.
Outdoor wedding
Woodlands to meadows to tipis - our approved venues have fantastic settings for outside ceremonies. And in case of inclement weather, backup options are available so you can relax knowing your wedding will be beautiful regardless of the weather.
Owls as ringbearers, dogs walking the bride down the aisle and entrances on horseback - have your pet share in your day. Please check with your venue beforehand if they allow pets.

Venue choice

Wedding barns and stately homes, internationally renowned music venues, bridal arrivals by boat or evening weddings in tipis – with over 130 approved venues to choose from, finding a venue that suits your style and budget is easy.

Include friends and family in your ceremony, or even have a fancy dress wedding! 

Our friendly and experienced celebrants are on hand to help every step along the way.

Outdoor weddings

Meadows and beaches. Woodlands and reed beds. With Suffolk being in an Area of Outstanding Beauty, you're spoilt for choice on creating the perfect setting for your wedding.

Outdoor weddings are incredibly memorable and a perfect backdrop to your special day.

Have your pet by your side

If you have a pet who is a part of your family, have them with you on your wedding day. They could act as your ring bearer or walk the bride down the aisle. We welcome your four legged (or two winged) friends to participate in your ceremony.

Please check with individual approved venues to see if they allow pets.
