Ceremony in the City

For couples living in, or near to, a city or town, it’s worth considering an inclusive hotel package. Gone are the days when city hotels were just generic, utilitarian reception venues. Many now offer complete, affordable and stylish packages that can be tailored to individual tastes and budgets. 

Particularly for gay couples, hotels can replace the inaccessible traditions of the church (and the sometimes impersonal setting of a registry office) with a real sense of occasion. 

Having a package has its benefits, too. With a simple (and relatively painless) swipe of a credit card you can have the ceremony, the wedding breakfast, the sit down meal, the evening buffet, entertainment and whatever else you need booked at the same time. Many venues will also offer the service of a wedding coordinator.

We’ve selected three city venues from our directory to give you some inspiration. Remember to visit our website at www.pinkweddingdays.co.uk to search for venues in your local area.

Located in London’s West End, The Marriott Grosvenor Square has the sophistication and character of a country venue, but with the convenience of being in the very heart of the capital. Once guests have enjoyed a ceremony in the hotel's beautiful ballroom, they can dine on Michelin-starred cuisine before dancing the evening away. 

In the heart of the Scottish Capital is The Carlton Hotel. Located on Edinburgh's most famous street, the hotel offers a choice of ceremony rooms holding up to 200 people. Inside, guests will benefit from beautiful d├ęcor which includes an ornate staircase. For overnight guests, there is the choice of 189 bedrooms.

Guests at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Nottingham, can enjoy individually tailored ceremony and reception packages right in the heart of the city. With the help of a wedding co-ordinator and chef, its four ceremony rooms are perfect for both intimate and extravagant weddings and, of course, everything in between.

City hotels are also better connected to national and international transport links and are ideal for accommodating overnight guests: a city hotel is convenient for everyone.
