Beautiful and unusual wedding venues: the illustrated guide

Finding the perfect wedding venue can be tricky, particularly if you're looking for something truly unique to you and your partner. After all, no matter how much bunting they string up around the place, there's only so many ways to dress up a hotel function room.

Thankfully, help is at hand.

We've teamed up with the clever folks at Wilderness Reserve to round up some of the most weird and wonderful wedding venues from around the world; think dinosaurs, underground caverns, gently bobbing hot air balloons, and plenty more besides.

It's time to bypass tradition in favour of a confetti-littered road less travelled: scroll through our illustrated guide for wedding venue inspiration now...
