Gone are the days where getting married constituted going down to your local church followed by some merriment in the village hall or pub. Weddings now are only restricted by the scope of the bride’s imagination you can have your special day exactly how you always dreamt it. Or can you?

The day is here and the festivities are in full swing, enter stage right a group of party-goers in full voice: “sorry, we’ve got the wrong room”’. It all seemed too good to be true; all of a sudden you’re sharing your wedding with strangers. The answer is an exclusive-use venue. Your wedding day can be all about you and your guests. After all, the wedding should be all about the bride and groom with none of the compromises of everyday reality.

Here are six reasons for going it alone… with just your family and friends for company of course.

1. Hiring a venue for exclusive use truly allows you to realise your dream day, uniquely styled and created by you.

2. You can be king and queen of the castle whether that is a real castle nestled in the rugged mountains of Scotland or a more informal kind of royalty in a stately home, all with complete privacy with no outside disruptions. It’s that one day where all your nearest and dearest from the far-flung corners of the world are all gathered together to celebrate you.

3. Hiring a venue exclusively not only allows for the unique opportunity for your guests to stay in the same location but also provides the space to rekindle old bonds and for two families to create new ones in the privacy of your own home away from home. A relaxed and private space to realise this seems natural.  So why not take over a property for the weekend so everyone can really get to know each other in a less formal setting? A large private house works perfectly for this.

4. The logistical element of planning a wedding is often overlooked, everything from providing a quiet space for elderly guests to controlling the antics of small children are quintessential factors in achieving a seamless wedding. Exclusive use of a property takes away these unknowns, freeing up the space for you to use the venue as you wish.

5. Private use of the venue also ensures the staff are all focused on you, without any distractions from other guests, allowing you to get hitched without a hitch.

6. Picking the venue is the hard part, everything from the period of the property to the décor to the location can help set the mood and atmosphere for your wedding day; the venue is your stylised blank canvas on which you will paint the unique masterpiece you and your guests will remember for the rest of their lives. Exclusivity gives you a freedom to indulge your creativity, irrespective of the constraints usually associated with shared wedding venues.

* The experts at Exclusive Use luxury venues offer an independent free service to save you hours of searching for the ideal venue. They can provide venue suggestions and guidance based on what you want out of your wedding. Exclusive Use has a selection of fabulous properties from opulent stately homes to country hideaways with a venue for all tastes.
