The best haunted wedding venues for a spooky wedding day!
If you’re planning a Halloween wedding theme, or you just love something a little spooky, then you should definitely take advantage of Britain’s history by booking a haunted wedding venue! Here are some of our favourites from around the country…
As the name suggests, the stunning Coombe Abbey was originally a monastery dating back to the 12th century – it was given to Henry VII when the monasteries were dissolved, and the young Elizabeth I even lived here for a time! With the royal history comes the spooky stories, including the ghosts of monks wandering the hallways, and a resident gypsy girl named Matilda who (according to legend) put a curse on the Craven family in the 19th century. This is a Warwickshire wedding venue with real character and history, which makes it perfect for a wedding with a difference.
This glamorous manor house dates back to the 16th century and is packed with stunning original features and intriguing history. The More-Molyneux family has lived here for over 500 years, and have kept the architecture in such good condition that it feels like you’re walking through history when you’re there. For spook-lovers, Loseley Park is home to a ghostly woman dressed in brown, who apparently makes regular trips over to the nearby Baynards Park to visit their headless horseman!
It should come as no surprise that one of the most famous castles in British history has its own resident ghosts! The most famous of these is Sir Fulke Greville, who was murdered by his manservant and is said to haunt the tower, but if you marry around Halloween then you can take advantage of some of the castle’s spookiest displays and events, including seances and shows. It is a great wedding venue year round, but we particularly love it in the autumn when the evenings are warm but it gets dark early…
This stunning medieval castle is no stranger to the supernatural – as well as rumours of ghosts, spirits and even vampires, Alnwick Castle was also the filming location for Hogwarts in the first two Harry Potter movies! There are three amazing wedding locations to choose from, including a dramatic ruined abbey, which means you’ll have plenty of choice when it comes to throwing your spooky wedding celebration.
This Victorian mansion hotel looks just the part if you are looking for a haunted wedding venue, thanks to its amazing neo-Gothic architecture – in fact, it looks so good that it was the filming location for the 1963 film The Haunting! Ettington Park once held the title of the most haunted hotel in Britain, and spectres spotted here include a servant girl named Mary, Lady Emma, and a man who walks his dog through the library.
