Intimate Cave Wedding

Cave Wedding anyone?

Getting married in a historical cave or a spectacular underground chamber seems to be all the rage at the moment. I asked our Alice in Weddingland followers if they have been to any really unusual wedding venues and a Cave Wedding seemed to be the favourite.  I have chosen a just a few options to share with you, one of which is truly breath taking, so keep reading!!

The first Cave Wedding venue is The Edinburgh Caves, absolutely amazing for a wedding, atmospheric, romantic and so dramatic.

Every room has a story to tell and a special place in Scottish history – from vaults that served as the stables to the French Cavalry who were at one time body guards to the Royal Family, to remains of the houses that pre-date the Bridge itself – with the original terracotta floor tiles still intact! This amazing and fantastically unique venue will wow your guests and is licensed for civil, humanist, religious and hand fasting ceremonies.

Today, after over 100 years of being lost, the hidden vaults were rediscovered and the original stone vaults of the Old Town Edinburgh have been magnificently restored by father and son team, Norrie Rowan senior (Scottish rugby internationalist and Grand Slam squad member) and Norman Rowan junior.

You really could make this Cave Wedding venue look like a fairytale with the use of candles and flowers, but if you prefer, you could always keep things simple and let the venue speak for itself.

The second Cave Wedding venue is Carn Glaze, Cornwall.

Surrounded by breathtaking gardens these Cornwall caverns offer three cathedral proportions venues that were hand created by local slate miners. From a crystal clear subterranean lake of blue/green water to a spectacular terraced gardens and valley you will be spoilt for choice where to stay the longest. The caverns can cater from between forty and four hundred wedding guests – Wedding Chaos

I think having any wedding underground would be unique and very unusual, it creates a totally different feel to a wedding in a hotel.  Having backdrops with beautifully lit pools of water and amazing rock formations, candles making a romantic atmosphere really is a spectacular way to have a wedding ceramony.

My third choice for a Cave Wedding is Ash Cave, Columbus, Ohio.

Ash Cave — the largest recess cave in Ohio— is perhaps the most awe-inspiring feature of Hocking Hills State Park. With a horseshoe-shaped rim that spans 700 feet, Ash Cave is, in a word, enormous and open on one side. It measures 100 feet from front to back and 90 feet from the rim’s edge to the floor below. Adding to the dramatic visual impact of Ash Cave is a waterfall that cascades over the rim of the cave. Those lucky enough to visit Ash Cave during an especially cold winter may enjoy a rare treat, as the Ash Cave waterfall has been known to freeze from top to bottom.

This location in Ohio is truly breathe taking, if you are looking for a one in a million for your cave wedding ceremony then this has it all and more.

As you can see from the pictures above a cave wedding doesn’t mean wearing wellies and a mac, you really can have your magical day in an awe-inspiring wondrous place.  It seems these days you can get married any where, which makes your wedding dreams a lot easier to achieve!

There is also a venue called Tunnels Beach in North Devon which has stunning scenery and caves for spectacular photos, check it out!
