Get married in a theme park - every big kid’s dream!

Loved-up couples looking for a quirky alternative to traditional wedding venues can now exchange vows at Drayton Manor Theme Park after it gained a licence to hold civil ceremonies.

Wedding ceremonies will take place in the park’s Tower and Hamilton Suites, each of which are big enough to accommodate hundreds of guests, who can be part of the happy couple’s big day. These suites also have their own reception, bar, parking and dance floor, so guests can dance the night away. Couples could also choose to get married in the Tower Lounge and Victoria Room, which is perfect for those looking for a more intimate affair.

The granting of the civil ceremony licence comes as Drayton Manor, located near Tamworth, Staffordshire, prepares for the grand opening of its 150-room hotel on 15th August, which will enable the bride, groom and wedding guests to stay overnight and enjoy their nuptuals and celebration all in the same setting.

The Drayton Manor Park Hotel will include a large hospitality suite, which can also be hired for wedding parties, accommodating up to 150 guests.

Jo Arrowsmith, Hospitality Manager for Drayton Manor Theme Park, said: “For decades, Drayton Manor has been a popular venue for wedding parties and celebrations. But the combination of having a wedding licence, hotel, hospitality suites, as well as on-site catering, will make Drayton Manor the ideal venue for any couple looking to tie the knot.

“Drayton Manor’s hospitality team works to ensure that every part of a couple’s day goes smoothly and will assist in the planning of all aspects of the occasion. The park also provides a fantastic setting for wedding pictures, whether it’s against a stunning woodland backdrop, or on the carousel.”
