Featuring your Wedding Venue with Pink Wedding Venues gives LGBTQ+ couples the assurance their enquiry will be welcomed with open arms....
"It's not really about advertising for us, it's more about customer confidence - we feel our listing with you could mean the difference between a same sex couple choosing us or going elsewhere because they're unsure whether they would be welcomed. It's a no brainer really!" ~ Donna Newman | Director | The Granary at Fawsley Wedding Venue.
Ensure your venue is seen as totally inclusive to all couples and let us recommend you, as a Gay/LGBTQ+Friendly Wedding Venue, to our same-sex wedding couples across the UK.
Studies have shown that LGBTQ+ communities tend to favour gay-friendly businesses such as ours. Let’s make sure your venue is a business to be favoured too.
Unlike other wedding sites in the marketplace we don’t want to be a “one stop shop”. We believe one of the biggest investments a couple can make for their big day is their venue. It needs to be right for both the couple and their guests. We focus purely on LGBTQ+ friendly wedding venues, nothing else such as cakes, cars, photographers or Google Ads that may distract the user away from your page.
We have created a site that is dedicated to LGBTQ+ friendly wedding venues who would like to reach out to LGBTQ+ couples. If you consider yourselves gay-friendly, welcome same-sex marriage and can ensure our couples are met with the utmost welcome and respect from their enquiry, we would be delighted to feature your venue across our site, recommend and showcase it to our LGBTQ+ community.
Nothing else...just amazing, inclusive, wedding venues such as yours!

"We've been hosting weddings for 10 years and although we've always been open for ALL couples, we've found that this information isn't apparent to prospective couples looking for a venue, unless we tell them!
Our listing on Pink Wedding Venues provides the perfect platform for same sex couples to find us and know that they will be welcomed and celebrated with no awkwardness.
In addition to this, the advice from Elaine has been invaluable in ensuring that not only our listing, but also our website are inclusive.
We've been listed with Pink Wedding Venues for 3 ½ years and have seen a clear increase in bookings for same sex couples during that time.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Pink Wedding Venues to other venues, it could be the difference between a couple choosing you or going elsewhere because they are unsure whether they will be welcomed" – Donna Newman | Director | The Granary at Fawsley

“As a venue (Nailcote Hall Hotel) we have been featured with Pink Wedding venues for a couple of years now, and feel it’s imperative to align your wedding venue with the same sex wedding market. As I was personally planning my own same sex wedding, I found the question “do you allow gay weddings?” being asked by myself and husband to be far too many times. Featuring your venue on a site as well founded as Pink Wedding Venues, shows that you welcome all weddings, and can really help couples make that first step to coming and visiting you, and can help stop that question from having to be asked.” - Weddings Manager ~ Nailcote Hall Hotel, Warwickshire.
"In general, marketing for same-sex couple weddings is a vital step forward in the wedding industry.

We really admire Pink Wedding Venues because it’s clear that all venues listed are proactively reaching out to the LGBTQ+ wedding market and want to appeal to all. For us, marketing with Pink Wedding Venues is an important step forward to proactively show that we welcome all couples." - Groups, Conference and Events Sales Manager ~ Hilton St Anne's Manor House, Berkshire.

"The world is progressing positively which is fantastic news and wedding venues are quickly following suit. However, not every venue is suitable for a same-sex wedding so we feel it’s important to offer a location that’s LGBTQ+-friendly. Same-sex weddings have a few different options in how they proceed. They could hold a civil ceremony conducted by a registrar which is legally binding or another option is to hold a blessing. This is not legally binding but gives the couple an opportunity to celebrate their love with family & friends. Whichever option a couple chooses, they need a venue that is able to offer one or both of these options. We feel that is important to offer these ceremony choices to all couples and by using the right marketing avenues we can ensure that same-sex couples are aware of what we can them for their big day, may it be traditional or quirky. Feedback from our couples tells us there is limited information out there for the LGBTQ+ community so we want to ensure that we make it known that we are a suitable venue to celebrate that special day and this is why we have now chosen to advertise our venue on Pink Wedding Venues." - The Barns at Hunsbury Hill, Northamptonshire
