5 perfect intimate wedding venues for your 2020 COVID wedding
It’s fair to say Coronavirus has well & truly messed with your expectations for life in 2020, let alone your wedding plans. One minute you were writing out a list of everyone you’ve ever met to invite, the next you were being told that your wedding might not even go ahead. Enter, intimate romantic weddings!
Current guidance is that smaller, more intimate weddings have the green light to go ahead, although the exact guest numbers is an ever changing figure.
BrideFinds have put together a list of perfect venues for your more intimate wedding with fewer guests. And remember, a smaller wedding doesn’t necessarily mean it’s any worse than a bigger wedding, just different. Having to change your plans may mean you look at things you wouldn’t have previously considered and who knows it may end up being more memorable than you could have ever imagined
These venues are all based within 2 hours of Leeds, West Yorkshire
