Maybe you’ve been together for years, maybe it’s a whirlwind romance – but either way you’re head over heels in love.
They’re the one – the best thing that’s ever happened to you, the incredible dream soulmate who’s transformed your life, as you’ve transformed theirs.
So when it comes to making that big commitment and taking the next step together, you want somewhere that truly understands you – and what all this really means to you both.
Finding the right venue for your wedding will always be a very personal choice – and you don’t want to compromise. Everything absolutely has to be right for a day as important as this.
Plenty of venues will talk about hosting same-sex weddings and civil partnerships. And their facilities may look good.
But the most important factor will always be the warmth of the welcome from everyone working there, every member of staff – from the team at reception, to the event managers, to the waiters and waitresses pouring your champagne for the toasts.
That welcome has to be right, it has to be special and it has to be genuine – that’s the truest test of any wedding venue.
Three years ago Britain’s first same-sex wedding couples walked down the aisle together and made legal history – a triumph for the LGBT community.
Cast your mind back even further to December 2005 when same-sex couples celebrated the first civil partnerships.
Since then our team at this historic five-star coaching inn has been privileged to host ceremonies for lots of same-sex couples. We’ve had the honour of organising some glorious wedding breakfasts and throwing some great evening parties for them – it’s been wonderful.
But then we’ve been making people feel welcome for nearly 900 years. So we’d like to think we’re rather accomplished at creating the very best day that you can dream up.
Experience the unique ambience of the Olde Bell’s Victorian Malthouse or Tudor Tithe Barn for yourself – our next wedding fairs will be on November 26 2017, February 4 2018 and September 30 2018 (all Sundays).
Or see us at the Wedding Fair at ExCeL, London on Saturday October 21 and Sunday October 22 2017 – or the Gay Wedding Show at the Holiday Inn, Camden Lock on Sunday February 25 2018.
