We’re constantly tinkering, improving, developing and designing these pages. Hopefully in a non-intrusive way and in fact, I almost hope you don’t notice our subtle changes but instead just feel like this is one of the best directories you just happen to have stumbled across in your planning…
Our latest addition comes in the form of 9 NEW venue types to search from!
- Accommodation Onsite
- Church Onsite
- Late License
- No Corkage
- Pet Friendly
- Supplier Flexibility
Now most of these details can already be found within The Need to Know sections on each venue’s listings page but actually, it’s pretty useful for you to be able to search this criteria too right…?
We’ve loved taking all of your feedback on board from the survey (more to come on this soon!) and I thought we’d take a little look at one of these new venue types in a little more detail – the No Corkage venue!
This is such a key tick in the box for some couples, so we wanted to share with you just a sprinkling of the venues from this search selection. All of the venues below are no corkage wedding venues, so explore and discover!
