The Lady Lever Art Gallery
The Liverpool Museums network hosts weddings in many of their historic buildings - but set in the iconic surroundings of Port Sunlight, the Lady Lever is my favourite for places you might not have considered checking out!
You can hold a small ceremony of up to 30 guests, before inviting up to 150 to the grand hall for a wedding breakfast and 400 for your evening celebrations.
With striking architecture and glass-domed rotundas that look out onto a beautiful fountain - The Lady Lever is perfect for an elegant and unusual celebration.

The Secret Bunker
Have you seen this amazing venue yet? It's hidden away in a former civil defence nuclear bunker in Nantwich and is one of the most unusual places you'll find for your wedding day.
The team at the Secret Bunker are wonderful, and have different spaces on their site to host different sized weddings with different, quirky vibes depending on your personality. From their Cinema space for up to 30 guests (anyone want an intimate wedding?), to the 'War Room' for up to 150 guests (and also licensed for ceremonies)... click the link below and have a look at their photographs to get a true feel for how different it really is!

How about living your fairytale fantasy and getting married in an actual castle?
Boasting no less than FIVE licensed ceremony rooms, hosting weddings for between 2 and 150 guests - Peckforton Castle has everything on site that will make your actual dreams a reality. With a Great Hall for a big grand affair, a cosy Wine Cellar for a romantic candlelit celebration, and more - you're bound to fall in love with one of their spaces for your wedding day.
Despite the fact that they have so much space available to use, they only ever book one wedding a day too - an added bonus for you and your guests.

You can't get much more unusual than getting married at the swimming baths!
Victoria Baths is a stunning Edwardian heritage site in Manchester, that has been nominated recently for Best Wedding Venue at the UK Heritage Awards. They have 5 different spaces for your wedding ceremony with a twist, including 3 different stunning empty swimming pools to tie the knot in - and they are licensed for ceremonies and receptions so you can host your full day all in one place.
With stunning architecture and original features; if you are looking for a dramatic space to really wow your guests - you must check them out!

The Wellbeing Farm is the PERFECT venue for a super cute and quirky farm wedding. Hosting up to 170 guests at your ceremony and wedding breakfast, and up to 300 guests for your evening party - the farm also has lots of little spaces for micro weddings if you're after a smaller celebration. You can also hold your ceremony at the outdoor pavilion if the weather is good!
Set against the backdrop of the Lancashire moorlands, and with lots of quirky features for amazing photo opportunities - The Wellbeing Farm should definitely be top of your list of venues to check out...
