The ultimate blank canvas wedding venue

Blank canvas weddings venues are without doubt defined by their versatility.

There is a reason they have risen in popularity over the past few years.

They afford you the opportunity of having complete creative freedom, staying in total control and producing something remarkable on your special day.

But what exactly is a blank canvas wedding venue you may ask?

Blank canvas weddings allow brides to customise the venue and transform the space to match almost any colour scheme. They don’t come with any required suppliers so you are responsible for the chairs through to the decorations. You have complete freedom to build the look of your wedding from scratch. 

Blank canvas weddings cover stunning venues that act as a backdrop or empty shell to celebrate your nuptials in.

Choose from fabulous venues such as a rustic barn, a heritage site, lush country fields, a woodland wonderland or even an urban warehouse. A really great blank canvas wedding venue will offer you all the foundations of style and character that reflect your unique taste without compromising on the basics. 

Some venues will even allow you access a few days before your big day so that you have plenty of time to transform it into what you envisioned.

Another positive aspect of a blank canvas wedding are the endless options for exclusive and unique venue décor.

Let your imagination run wild with personalised décor, dreamy floral arrangements and colourful lanterns. It’s totally up to you. Your wedding style is about making the day all about you and your fiancé so make it personal to both of you, giving you and your guests an experience to remember.
