Need help finding the BEST wedding venue in Belfast?

You are in the right place

As a Belfast girl, I know a thing or two about this beautiful city. I’ve watched it grow, watched it flourish and I am super proud of what Belfast has become.

As a wedding photographer, I’m also pretty clued in when it comes to Wedding Venues in Belfast. I’ve been in them all at least once, growing up with many of them, and enjoying the new ones as they arrive.

We have so much on our doorstep, indeed you could say we are spoilt for choice. However this can make it hard to narrow down your options.

From 5 star hotels to historic university buildings, from quirky music halls to boutique hotels, intimate restaurants to boats on the river, heck, you can even get married in a Gaol!

Choosing the right venue can be a minefield, but this list will bring you one step closer to choosing your perfect wedding venue in Belfast.

Once you have narrowed your ideas down, it will always be essential to visit the wedding venue in person. This will give you a better sense of the space, give you a feel for the vibe and the chance to discuss all the options with the venues wedding coordinator.

“Choosing a Wedding Venue is HARD.”

Belfast has many hotels, catering for a wide range of budgets. The great thing about holding a hotel wedding is convenience. Many hotels offer complete wedding packages that include everything from the ceremony and reception, to catering and decorations, taking a lot of stress out of the planning process.

Having your wedding in a hotel also allows you and your guests to stay overnight in one location, making it easier to continue the celebration and reduce travel time for everyone.

We have numerous Castles in Northern Ireland, and they make for incredible Wedding Venues.

One of them belongs to Belfast

Celfast Castle stands proudly in the grounds of Cave Hill Country Park. This impressive castle, belongs to the city and is managed by Belfast City Council.

Whilst it doesn’t have any accommodation on site, there are many hotels close by.

It’s impeccably maintained and offers spectacular views across our beautiful city.

The jewel in the crown of North Belfast, it is an ideal wedding venue, and in a location that is amazing for photos. It’s just perfect.

Small Wedding Venues Belfast

Its OK to want a small or intimate wedding.

Covid made them a ‘thing’ as it was all you could have. But it was a turning point in the wedding industry. Lots of couples realised that they could have their wedding their way and that having a big family shindig was no longer considered a ‘requirement’. I absolutely love small weddings.

The list below features many I have already spoken about, as many of them have options of smaller rooms to hold a more intimate affair.

Stormont Hotel

Now, on the subject of wedding photographers. You spend a lot of time with them on your wedding day so you need to get along with them.

Like wedding venues, look around their websites first and then schedule time to meet up with a few of them.
