Did someone lose a glass slipper? Cinderella is a truly timeless Disney classic and we have found a wedding venue that features some of the details from this iconic animation. Situated amongst the lush meadows of Hertfordshire, Ashridge House is an enchanting wedding venue with over 700 years of history. One of their most popular wedding settings is The Grand Hall. This space’s most fabulous characteristic is the stunning staircase; to exchange vows on, or to walk in through a striking entrance. In Cinderella, as the clock strikes midnight, Prince Charming follows Cinderella down a grand staircase, only to find her glass slipper. This venue is perfect if you want a magical, Cinderella-inspired venue for your fairytale wedding. It’s also fit for a Princess!

Imagine having a wedding so fun even the cutlery dances along with you! Beauty and the Beast is another magical Disney classic. The Beast is isolated in his huge, dark castle, situated in the middle of nowhere, but ends up becoming a beautiful, joyous setting for everyone. Grittleton House gives us major Beauty and the Beast vibes! This large manor house wedding venue is situated within 35 acres of Wiltshire parkland and has equally beautiful architectural features and facades. We think this wedding venue would be ideal for a Beauty and the Beast inspired wedding.

Aladdin is another one of our favourite Disney movies. From the three wishes, to the flying carpet, this film is truly magical. Looking for the perfect venue for your Aladdin inspired wedding? Ditton Manor has a stunning walk-way entrance which reminds us of Prince Ali’s grand entrance. There is also a picturesque balcony that mirrors the iconic balcony where Aladdin takes Jasmine for a trip on the magic carpet. Ditton Manor is a unique, sand colour, which reflects the colours of buildings in Agrabah, and of course, the miles and miles of Arabian desert. From the moment you arrive at this Berkshire wedding venue, you will feel like you’re in a whole new world!

Is your partner the Tarzan to your Jane? Maybe, you love the Tarzan soundtrack (who doesn’t?!). Well, the Eden Project in Cornwall is a fantastic location for your wedding day! Their Rainforest Biome is the world’s largest indoor jungle and its lush vegetation and foliage provides a beautiful backdrop for your wedding ceremony. Following the ceremony, you can experience the wide array of gorgeous backdrops for your wedding photos, including a stunning waterfall and aerial rainforest walkway.

Tangled is a magical Disney movie inspired by the story of Rapunzel. Rapunzel may wish to escape her tower, but you’ll never want to leave this beautiful setting! Newcastle Castle is a beautiful, medieval venue, with a lot of history. The tallest part of the castle reminds us of how in the traditional fairytale, Rapunzel lets down her luscious locks from high up in the tower, beckoning her prince to help her. We think this is absolutely idyllic and perfect for a Tangled inspired wedding venue.

Imagine getting married at sea! The Little Mermaid is another magical Disney classic.

Plus, with ability to have your ceremony on deck, you’ll feel like your wedding is straight out of The Little Mermaid. If you’re wanting an Ariel inspired wedding day, then look no further.

“Over the seven jewelled hills, beyond the seventh wall, in the cottage of the seven dwarfs, dwells Snow White, fairest one of all”. Are you looking for a cottagecore wedding venue that resembles the dwarfs’ home in Snow White? River Cottage is perfectly hidden in the countryside on the Devon / Dorset border, waiting for you and your guests to stumble upon your perfect Disney inspired wedding venue. Unlike the dwarfs’ cottage, River Cottage can accommodate up to 70 guests with space for an additional 30 in the summer months! We are in love with the natural beauty of this venue and the lovely walled garden, we know even Grumpy would approve!

Winnie the Pooh is an old-time Disney favourite. While it may not be thought of as a fairytale, the group of characters always come together to support each other and we think that is just as magical. Winnie the Pooh is set in the fascinating Hundred Acre Woods. All Manor of Events offer an endearing space for outdoor weddings, surrounded by the beautiful woodlands of Suffolk. Like Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and the rest of the gang, you can feel close to your family and friends on your special day.

Star Wars fans, may the force be with you…on your wedding day! Jedi must not form attachments such as marriage, and we are not a fan of this Jedi Code! However, Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala took the risk of getting married, and tied the knot on Naboo in the Lake Country, which was the most isolated area of the planet. The breathtaking balcony and scenic views made us go straight to the beautiful Hever Castle in Kent. This wedding venue has stunning architectural features and is surrounded by 600 acres of countryside. So if you’re wanting to get married in a secluded and private venue like Anakin and Padmé, then look no further; this magical venue is just perfect.

Dumbo was one of the first ever Disney films created. This film really does pull on the heart strings as the baby elephant finds a magical ability to fly with his comically large ears. Even though the film does take us on a journey of ups and downs, we can’t ignore that WDP Circus is a fascinating setting, and could inspire many to have a magical Disney wedding. Deene Park Walled Gardens has a permanent marquee within its beautiful grounds, and is perfect for an outdoor wedding in Northamptonshire. If you loved the draping circus tent in Dumbo, then this stunning marquee with a draped ceiling, along with the gorgeous backdrop of the Deene Park Estate, is wonderful for a fairytale venue.

“Magic Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?”. You will certainly be the fairest of them all in this stunningly elegant dress ‘Mila’ from Sassi Holford. This dress oozes power and sophistication, with the high neckline and dramatic long draped sleeves. Disney’s famous villain, the Evil Queen, held a lot of power, despite being hated by many.

If you’re having a Disney inspired wedding, you can find this dress in the Stella York range at Bicester Bridal.
Is a villain really crucial in making a fairytale? Even though sometimes we despise them, they are extremely powerful and have a certain flair about them that keeps us intrigued. In this instance, we’re obsessed with the flared sleeves on Mother Gothel’s dress. We have found this elegant wedding dress ‘Blair’, design F231 by Wilderly which has magnificent flared sleeves. This dress really does all of the talking and if you’re having a Disney inspired wedding, then why not have a breathtaking dress to match. Find this gown at TDR Bridal.
