Theme Dream – Choose Your Own Wedding Theme Based on the Venue

by Avid Thinker October 02, 2013

If your wedding is going to have a theme, your choice of venue is crucial: if you’re having a vintage theme, for example, a reception in an old church hall, rambling country house or retro-styled boutique hotel will complement it beautifully.

And if you haven’t thought of a theme yet, the venue itself may be so thematic that it sets the tone for the whole day, allowing you to build your day around it.

We’ve selected 10 such venues; beautiful and inspirational destinations that lend themselves perfectly to the most popular contemporary wedding themes.

Blenheim Palace: fabulous on film

If the happy couple are film buffs, this stately home venue — and World Heritage Site — must be considered: Blenheim Palace is famous for being Winston Churchill’s birthplace, but it also has a place in movie history. The stunning palace and its grounds have been used for filming a huge and impressive list of movies including the Young Victoria, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Black Beauty, Gulliver’s Travels and The Libertine, starring Johnny Depp.

Keythorpe Manor: festival fever

Festival fans can turn their nuptials into a mini-fest by choosing a venue like Keythorpe Manor. There is a bespoke marquee here (a blank canvas that allows you to put your own stamp on the day), with white hardwood exteriors, and the idyllic setting in the beautiful South Leicestershire countryside lends itself perfectly to festival-style celebrations. Take in the view of the rolling hills from the veranda where you could also have a festival-esque outdoor bar and cooking station.

Brighton Music Hall: having a beach ball

Situated right on Brighton’s beach, this cool wedding venue could spark an amazing beach themed wedding with striped décor, retro seaside treats and cute touches like mini buckets filled with candy as favours. There are actually three Brighton Beach venues under the Brighton Music Hall umbrella: the Oh So Social café, the Brighton Music Hall bar and café and the “Tremendous Tipi”, a hip Norwegian structure, perfect for wedding parties.
