571 Same Sex Venues
With the arrival of Civil Partnerships in this country gay weddings, or at least since that first stage started things rolling, celebrations of gay unions – have happily become pretty commonplace, with few bar the zealot and the odd retired brigadier now raising even an eyebrow about such events. Wedding venues have tended to embrace the concept with open arms, some like those listed here making particular efforts to attract and meet the demands of gay couples. And sweeping cliché though it may be, like so many of those couples said venues tend towards the stylish and the smart. But they don’t tend towards any sort of uniformity – in this section you’ll find everything from castles to barns to country pubs and – the brigadier reaches for his green pen – high end golf clubs keen to host gay partners marking their lifetime commitment to one another.
