“The ethos behind Coco can be summed up using these words; “Luxe, stylish, unique, quality, bespoke and cool”. These words capture the spirit of Coco Wedding Venues and all that we look for in our wedding venues…”

Since launching in early 2014, Coco Wedding Venues has captured the imagination of Brides and wedding industry professionals alike. This beautiful, style-focused wedding venue directory and blog has carved a special niche in a crowded marketplace and won numerous fans along the way.

Curated by editor Emma Hla, who left her career with brands such as Michael Kors and Links of London behind, Coco Wedding Venues has already been shortlisted for the prestigious ‘Best Design’ title at The Wedding Blog Awards and has featured extensively in print and online. Emma has been asked to speak on branding & start-up businesses and has enticed some of the most stunning wedding venues in the UK to join the Coco family.

It offered everything we wanted on one site - outside and inside, hills, a lake, a barn, wooden function room, marquee, quaint cottages and a big party house – and all exclusively ours for the weekend. Thanks to Coco Wedding Venues, it was easy to compare to similar venues and make our decision..."
