Art Wedding Venues
From Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel to Andy Warhol’s iconic soup tins, we all have our own taste in art. Galleries too come in many different shapes and sizes, from small and intimate to grand and majestic. Historic to modern they can all offer their own variety of style to a wedding.

The main image is from the Compton Verney art gallery in Warwickshire. A fantastic setting for a wedding and a unique venue for a reception.

Manchester Art Gallery Wedding venue

Manchester Art Gallery provides an exclusively modern yet classically romantic setting for your wedding, but they only take one booking a month so book up early if modern art on a grand scale is up your street.

NmeM art gallery wedding venue
NmeM in Bradford is five floors of award winning gallery space with lots of interesting things to keep your guests entertained throughout the day including an Imax cinema and the Kodak Gallery set in the style of an Edwardian drawing room and hosting some of the worlds first photographs .

The Ashmolean Museum wedding and reception venue
The Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology in the heart of Oxford is set in the style of a 17th century pallazo with red silk damask walls, chandeliers and old masters to set the scene for a very romantic day.

Aston Hall wedding venue
Aston Hall in Birmingham is a Grade I listed Jacobean house set in 50 acres of parkland and housing the acclaimed Astonish Gallery in the grounds converted stable buildings.

If you want to take the art theme further, you could add some little touches to your day, like using easels for table planners and palettes for canapés, and you could consider hiring a portrait artist to paint guests throughout the day.

Have a love affair with art.
