There are several websites dedicated solely to the promotion of wedding venues. Whilst most feature dozens of venues in a wide range of styles of varying quality, one or two go a step further by assessing the quality of the venues featured.
When it comes to selecting the style of venue, your personal and individual personalities, likes and dislikes will dictate to a large extent.
There is a wide range of different styles to choose from, from restaurants to rustic barns or boutique hotels to former palaces. Be warned that unfortunately, as is so often the case, you tend to get what you pay for. You can also choose Weddings & Events at Golf the Bull.

Furthermore, peak season Saturdays will usually be booked up 9 months or more in advance, so in order to secure the best venues, it is important to either be flexible with the wedding date or start your venue search a year or so in advance.
However, if you use an online resource that assesses the quality of the venues featured and offers a wide range of criteria in which to focus your search, your venue search should be reasonably straightforward!
The venue's room format is an often forgotten consideration when venue searching and can lead to huge disappointment, especially if you have traveled to view the property unaware of such considerations.
It is sometimes the case a venue requires you to have both the ceremony and the meal in the same room. In such instances the room will be 'turned around' whilst the drinks reception takes place in another room, outside or in an annex, so you won't be able to see the tables laid after the ceremony.
