When you’re planning a wedding, the biggest decision is the ‘where.’ You might be dreaming of a traditional white wedding, or perhaps you’re considering something more contemporary. If you’re tying the knot in Nottingham, you have so many options, so we decided to weigh them up in this article…
1. Modern: Crown Plaza
This hotel is ultra modern with 210 refurbished bedrooms, not one, not two but 17 venue rooms with capacity for 400 guests and an ideal location, right in the centre of town. There is even a spa on site for some R&R after the busy day. Because it is such a modern venue, rest assured everything works and everything has been designed to accommodate you and the modern day wedding.
2. Classic: The Belgrave Rooms
Or you could opt for something a little more classic. Built in the 1800s, the Belgrave Rooms has a licensed chapel within with extensively carved pillars. What you get with an older, more classic venue is more experience in hosting weddings and a more classically beautiful style. This one even comes with a wedding coordinator!
3. Modern: Goosedale
What’s better than an old barn full of character and charm? A new one that has retained the charm whilst being purpose built for weddings in mind, making it super practical and incredibly beautiful. Goosedale in Nottingham is a beautiful modern barn with stunning views across the surrounding countryside.
4. Classic: Bestwood Lodge Hotel
This stunning Victorian country house in Bestwood Lodge Country Park offers all inclusive weddings for up to 150 guests. It’s in a romantic location and features an on site gothic chapel. Another great benefit to traditional venues is that they’re usually surrounded by acres of parkland and large in size.
5. Modern: Gusto
This beautiful modern Italian restaurant is flooded with natural light and can cater for 20 to 100 guests making it an ideal location for a more intimate affair. Rest assured, the food will be incredible with Italian menus selecting only the best fresh ingredients, and you will have your own event planner on the day too.
6. Classic: Ye Olde Bell Hotel
A 17th century coaching inn with a spa, this intriguing venue seems to combine modernity with its classical style. It has an AA Rosette for its kitchen with its many years of experience, there are 59 rooms for guests to stay in after the party, and there’s a handcrafted oak pavilion and stylish garden bar for outdoor weddings too. If you really can’t decide between beautiful classic spaces and practical modern ones, going somewhere in between like with this venue is a great idea.
7. Modern: DoubleTree by Hilton
Back to a modern choice now, and Nottingham Gateway’s DoubleTree by Hilton is ticking all our boxes. It’s a four star wedding venue on the outskirts of the city with city glamour and rustic charm. There’s a dedicated wedding coordinator to help you every step of the way, and stunning interiors thanks to a £5,000,000 refurbishment!
