In celebration of the first year anniversary of the Same-Sex (Marriage) Act, The Gay Wedding Guide has partnered with VisitBrighton, VisitLondon and VisitManchester to produce an infographic highlighting some of most stand-out wedding venues that are not only unique but, crucially, are openly supportive of same-sex marriage.

Hugh Wright, the spokesperson for The Gay Wedding Guide, said:

“Marriage is the formal recognition of the love and commitment of two people; inevitably it is one of the most exciting times in a person’s life.

No-one wants to get married at a venue where they feel an element of hostility or disapproval.

They want to be treated equally and don’t their experience be marred at any stage of the wedding planning process – not by venue staff, potential suppliers or wedding night or honeymoon hotels.

Any venue or supplier featured on The Gay Wedding Guide has made a considered, thought-through choice to do so.

Couples using The Gay Wedding Guide can do so reassured by the fact that they will be welcomed and treated just the same as any other couple. And that reassurance means a lot.”
