Top 25+ Nottingham Wedding Venues in 2021

Updated 23rd April 2021

Getting engaged is so exciting – congratulations!! Figuring out where and when to get married is certainly not. Luckily for you, there are a tonne of Nottingham wedding venues – the hard part is figuring out the perfect one for you! Luckily for you we’ve compiled a list of the best wedding venues in Nottinghamshire and a separate blog for Derbyshire.

Having planned our wedding in 2015, we absolutely understand the struggle. Amy and I originally looked at Nottingham venues, before checking out a couple of Cornish wedding venues and eventually settling on our beautiful hometown of Salisbury. We spent forever trying to find the perfect wedding venue but it was absolutely worth it.

Having worked in the wedding industry for years now, we knew how hard it would be to find the perfect venue. We hope this list, helps to make the process a little more straightforward for you, inspires you, and shines some light on some of the most awesome local wedding venues.
