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.
From 29 March, gay men and lesbians can celebrate gay marriage in England and Wales, thanks to new legislation.
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.
