It’s the traditional home of holiday romance – a place where millions of people have found the partners of their dreams.
Dancing cheek to cheek in the magnificent Blackpool Tower Ballroom; walking hand-in-hand along a moonlit Promenade; sharing a boat made for two on the River Caves at Blackpool Pleasure Beach or a Cinderella carriage beneath the world-famous Blackpool Illuminations….
Now Blackpool has launched a new online portal to celebrate its status as one of the UK’s top destinations for couples tying the knot.
The UK’s most popular beach resort has some of the most iconic licensed wedding venues including:
The seafront Wedding Chapel, yards from the beach and with the most spectacular coastal views
Historic venues such as The Blackpool Tower, the Winter Gardens and Blackpool Pleasure Beach
Major hotels including the majestic Imperial and the brand new Boulevard Hotel at Blackpool Pleasure Beach
And, if you are that way inclined, you can even get hitched in the Blackpool Tower Dungeon or while you are swimming with sharks in the SEA LIFE Centre!
Blackpool’s wedding registrar team can also create bespoke ceremonies for couples where they can get married in a venue of their choice (including the beach) following a legal ceremony in a register office and then enjoy a ceremony tailored specifically to them.
The newly-launched website at visitblackpool.com/weddings, includes details of everything you need for your special day including details of all licensed wedding locations, reception venues, honeymoon hotels and specialist local suppliers of photography, cakes, decorations and dresses.
Dawn Titherington, Superintendent Registrar at Blackpool Council, said: “There is nowhere like Blackpool in terms of the range of venues that will set the scene for the most memorable of wedding days.
“Our own Wedding Chapel is as close to the sea beach as it’s possible to get, with magnificent views of the Irish Sea on one side and the famous Blackpool Tower on the other.
“A number of our main attractions are licensed for wedding ceremonies meaning that couples can exchange their vows in the most unique of settings.
“So many people down the years have found true romance in Blackpool. Now we can give them the ultimate happy ending with a bespoke wedding experience they will never forget.”
