There are thousands, perhaps even tens of thousands of extraordinary wedding venues in the UK, though there are not many venues that can cater to the larger Indian, Nigerian, Jewish wedding or Bar Mitzvah. These days it is not unusual to want to invite 300, 400, 500 or even 1000 guests to your wedding so the big question where do you hold a wedding for such a number of people? In no particular order, here is my exhaustive list of large wedding venues for the extended guest list:
