Follies flourished during the 18th century when it became a fashion among the wealthy to add them to the gardens and parklands of their country houses. Today they make splendid, bohemian wedding venues. Not all follies are licensed for the ceremony but they are superb places for romantic wedding photographs.
Many are tucked away in the countryside. Other follies are to be found in cities, including London, so believe it or not they can be urban wedding venues too. These wedding venues could be gothic towers or diminutive castles. They can be mock ruins, classical temples or even a Bedouin tent in the unlikely location of Surrey! When looking at folly venues, expect the unexpected! You could get hitched in a belvedere near Exeter or an island temple in the Thames near Henley.
