Looking For That Special Wedding Venue? Then Look Here!

File:Metropolitan opening reception.jpgIf you've been following us on Twitter recently, then you may have noticed that we've been highlighting a few of the venues from our directory. 142 characters however, can't do these hotels justice, so we thought that we'd feature them on here, too.

We've written before about the vital role of a venue in a wedding. More than just a space with four walls and a roof,  it adds a real sense of occasion to a ceremony and whether you want awe-infectious detail or simple, intimate elegance, a venue can amplify that perfect atmosphere we all want when say, I do.

We're fortunate enough to feature 7 hotels from the Principle Hayley Group, and we think you'll agree that their venues are superb examples of elegance, charm and splendor. And even better, they're eagerly waiting to host your wedding or civil partnership.

All the hotel information below is taken from Pink Wedding Days, and all the descriptions are in the venues' own words. If you click the name of the hotel, then a link will take you through to their listing and, from there, you'll find their contact details.
