Top 10 Alternative + Unique Wedding Venues in Yorkshire

It’s is a pretty big place, so to pick just ten places was a challenge in itself. We decided on what we hope are ten very different and unique wedding venues. Here we go, in no particular order…


1. Camp Katur

Woodland and meadows, perfect for an outdoor celebration.

2. Stephen Joseph Theatre

The first wedding Emma ever shot was here. They only have a small window each year when they can host weddings so get in touch asap if this is your dream venue!

3. York Maze

Perfect for an informal wedding, just outside York but in the beautiful countryside.

4. The Forbidden Corner

If you know, you know. If you don’t know – take a trip and have your mind blown.

5. Woodstock Weddings

A unique space all on one level, with an amazing indoor space with so much room for activities.

6. Millenium Gallery, Sheffield

This is a very modern space and would be perfect for art lovers.

7. Science + Media Museum

Holy shit the games lounge looks awesome. There’s cinemas and a photograph gallery too, but TETRIS chairs guys!

8. Wildwood + Eden, Scarborough

Not in a wood nor the garden of Eden, but don’t let the name fool you. One of our favourite local tipi venues.

9. Yorkshire Wildlife Park

Imagine getting married while hearing lions roaring in the distance. AMAZING.

10. North Shire

This place looks AMAZING. If you are a fan of all things magical – this is definitely the place for you.
