Best Wedding Venues in Bedfordshire (2022)

and how to choose the perfect one for you

When you're doing some wedding planning and trying to choose your venue there are so many considerations, can you get married there? How many people can come? Is there in-house catering? How much will it cost?

It's a huge list of questions and when you're searching across the internet, it's so easy to get "wedding blind". You've seen so many beautiful wedding venues over so much time, that they all start to blur into one.

So, I thought it might be helpful for me to give you a breakdown of all my favourite places to have a wedding in Bedfordshire, and give a really simple breakdown of what each one includes, whether that's in-house catering, a licensed ceremony room or free corkage.

The venues in my favourite list are:

With a bit more information within easy reach, it should be a lot simpler for you to find your perfect venue!
