Our Story + Values

Coco Wedding Venues is the first place to kickstart your wedding planning.

We’re the UK’s original style-focused wedding venue directory and an award-winning blog; serving up inspirational wedding venues, helpful articles, and our indispensable digital magazine The Annual.

Since 2013 we’ve been stripping back the noise and overwhelm in those first steps of planning and beyond for discerning couples with an eye for style. We’re big on beautiful imagery, helpful info without the jargon, and an easy-to-use browsing experience that’s designed to tap into your wedding vibe.

For us, it’s about quality rather than quantity. You won’t find beautiful country houses and magical woodlands next to corporate boxes, sporting venues, or conference centres. Our couples trust our knack for finding the most beautiful and unique places to get married - each chosen for their warmth, heart, stories, and individuality.

As Featured On
Our Mission

We bring together couples and wedding venues who share a passion for style, originality, and quality. Like that friend of yours who has a gift for introducing people they just know will hit it off at a dinner party – our mission is to make it easy for both couple and venue to find each other and ride off into the sunset together.

Everyone is welcome here

We’re guided in everything we do by our commitment to representing and supporting equality, diversity, and inclusion.

As far as we’re concerned, anyone in love deserves a wedding experience free from discrimination, prejudice and exclusion. We believe that a bespoke, more individual approach to weddings is the way forwards and we make a point of partnering with wedding venues that go the extra mile to make their clients feel happy and at ease.

Meet Emma

Like many of the best inventions in life, Coco Wedding Venues was founded as a solution to a problem. I’d just married my husband Mark and, with a background in fashion and love of design, our lacklustre wedding venue search had got me thinking…

What if we merged the functionality of a venue search tool with the stylish wedding inspiration that my beloved blogs had so brilliantly provided when we were wedding planning?

I roped in Mark as the techie behind my big idea and focused on creating something for couples who were a lot like us really - design-inspired, creative, individual. It was always important to me that the look and feel of our venue search tool embodied these elements and I think it shows - from the moment you land on the homepage, it feels really very different to other directories.

Now, Coco Wedding Venues has cultivated an enviable reputation for style, quality, and creativity – something I’m pretty proud of! Uniquely placed at the heart of the wedding scene, I also offer creative consultancy to venues looking to carve out their niche in the industry, from branding and social media insights to full editorial and styled shoot services.
