While all some brides have ever dreamt of is the traditional church wedding followed by an elegant hotel reception, others desire something more unusual for their ‘I do’ setting.

Thanks to relaxed wedding laws, the options for couples are now pretty much endless – from cinemas and art galleries to barns, warehouses and even treehouses; there really is venue to suit all styles, personalities and interests.

And in celebration of this choice and freedom, we’re catching up with one of our out-of-the-ordinary Sponsor venues on the blog today, Yorkshire-based aquarium, The Deep.

Perfect for marine fans out there, or those that simply want to stray on the other side of tradition, this spectacular venue promises ceremony and reception spaces like no other, with couples able to take their vows in-front of rare sea-life filled tanks, or even have a waddle of penguins observe their ring exchange. And don’t even get us started on the photo opportunities!

We’ll now hand over to The Deep’s events team to find out all that this extraordinary venue has to offer…

How would you describe the look and feel of the venue and what style of weddings does it suit?

the deep say: With amazing aquaria, stunning corals and bold architecture, The Deep is one of the most unique venues in Yorkshire. From traditional to romantic, or even a little bit quirky, any theme can find a home with us.

Can you tell us about the ceremony and reception areas and how many guests the venue can cater for? 

We can accommodate celebrations of varying sizes – whether your wedding is a small, intimate affair or something much bigger, we have some great spaces for you to celebrate.

The Deep is licenced to hold civil ceremonies around the attraction, and so couples can choose from a range of locations to say ‘I do’.  These include Endless Ocean alongside majestic green sawfish, sharks and rays, the dark and intimate Cool Seas, or in front of the quirky Gentoo penguins. We can also host ceremonies in the fourth-floor glass Observatory, which boasts views over Hull and the Humber.

What makes The Deep a special wedding venue and sets it apart from others?

The Deep offers unusual and distinctive locations for wedding celebrations and the photographs. Couples can be captured walking through the underwater tunnel, with the beautiful jellyfish or maybe a catfish or two! Then head to the Observatory at sunset to capture romantic moments like no other.
