Top 5 Most Unusual Wedding Venues in Hampshire for 2021
With Lockdown measures lifted and guest restrictions gradually easing, happy couples are able to begin planning their big day again. For those looking to make their unforgettable day extra memorable, we’ve rounded up our favourite unusual and quirky wedding venues in Hampshire.
- Milestones Museum
The Milestones Museum is a vintage lover’s dream. This immersive historical experience features vintage vehicles, a historic high street, ye olde sweet shop, a Victoria printing press and even a functioning 1940’s pub! Milestones have recently opened the venue for wedding ceremonies and couples can now tread the cobbled streets, exchange vows in the replica bandstand and celebrate with guests in the realistic town square. This living museum is the ideal venue for history looking for a quirky and memorable venue.
- HMS Warrior
Definitely one of the most unique reception venues in Hampshire, if not the UK! The HMS Warrior is the ultimate experience for couples looking to treat their guests to something special. A fully licensed venue, couples can marry in multiple locations onboard the Victorian vessel. From the grand décor of the Captain’s cabin to insta-ready gun-deck, HMS Warrior is the dream wedding location.
- Three Choirs Vineyard
Who says you need to travel abroad for exotic wedding locations? The Three Choirs Vineyard offers a stunning backdrop for your ceremony and wedding pictures and can be found at the foot of the Meon Valley in Hampshire. This unique location offers 40 acres of venue and the option to exchange vows within its infamous vineyard. Impress guests with the breath-taking location and homemade produce – another obvious benefit of hosting your wedding in a vineyard!
- Southampton Art Gallery
Another of Hampshire’s unique wedding venues is the Southampton art gallery. Couples can say ‘I do’ amidst masterpieces within the venue’s expanse of coloured stone arches. Art lovers will cherish the stunning gallery window, which floods the light with space and acts as the perfect ceremony backdrop.
- The Grange Estate and grounds
The Grange estate is possibly one of the most surprising venues on our list. The style of the estate’s main location is reflective of stately homes from bygone times and the silver screen– in fact, you may recognise the Grange mansion as it is often used as a filming location. However, the building’s grandiose appearance gives way to a rustic, deliberately dishevelled venue that is perfect for couples looking to experience alternative glamour. The estate also houses other ceremony locations, including an auditorium and stunning lake house garden!
