Every hopeless romantic who has planned their wedding has been able to close their eyes and imagine it. While it is a poetic term, at Easy Weddings we don’t think that romantics are hopeless at all. On the contrary, they are very hopeful and with very good reason. Love is real, and love stories can come true. You can find your soul mate and then marry them just the way you always imagined it in your head.
In our experience, there is one thread that runs through all of our vendor partners, and that is a love for bringing someone’s dream day to life. They adore it when a hopeful romantic meets with them and describes how it has always been in their head; because now this venue and the people that work there get to bring this to life.
There is nothing quite like the look on a couple’s faces when their day turns out to be everything they imagined.
But how do you find the perfect venue to make that happen, and uncover a place that doesn’t just look like everybody else’s wedding day?
You step outside the city, and into the undiscovered country.
We like nothing more than finding new ways to make our couples happy, and this list is all about that. These venues are the ones that are hidden secrets so far and that have the talent and facilities to bring wedding dreams to life if people only knew about them. The settings are unique and sublime, the hospitality is first-class, and the attention to detail is worthy of awards, but not many people know that yet either.
