Gay Wedding Venues and Services
Everything you need to plan your gay wedding
Choose from over 800 gay-friendly wedding venues and suppliers across the UK and abroad.
Thanks to new legislation, same sex couples can now celebrate gay marriage as well as civil partnerships in England and Wales.
We have lots of articles covering all aspects of planning a gay marriage, including questions to ask a wedding venue manager, choosing catering, flower decorations and wedding rings and how to entertain wedding guests.
We give tips on creating a timetable, setting a budget and choosing the wording of a civil partnership ceremony or gay marriage.
We feature stories of same-sex marriages so you can learn from other people's experiences.

We, Nicola and Laura, (picture above and top right) set up this directory when we were planning our own civil partnership in 2005. We wanted to find wedding venues and suppliers that would welcome gay men, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people on their special day.
