Leicester is a wonderfully diverse location to host your wedding, with options that range from modern hotels to authentic, working farms and majestic castles available for both religious and civil ceremonies. Leicester is conveniently close to home, but also offers the luxury you have dreamed of for your special day. Here are 3 wedding venues in Leicester that we recommend.

Mythe Barn

Mythe Barn is a countryside wedding venue that offers both indoor and outdoor locations for your reception and ceremony. A wedding coordinator and seating for up to 250 guests is available. Indoors, the barn has a rustic, traditional style with exposed beam ceilings and a neutral color theme.

Outdoors, the property features a gazebo for ceremonies, fire pits for barbecue-style receptions and a courtyard that is perfect for warm weather weddings. Food and beverages, including alcohol, are provided by the in-house caterer. Mythe Barn also offers seven rooms and a honeymoon suite for an all-in-one wedding and honeymoon package. This is a favourite of Lee Glasgow Wedding Photography who has many shots of Mythe Barn wedding venue in his portfolio.

The City Rooms offers a choice for three suites for the ceremony and reception, including a formal ballroom. The City Rooms is a flexible location for an ethnic wedding, such as Asian weddings.
