Deserted Building

Monroe Abbey Wedding Venue


Old warehouses or factories, schools and churches, there are some amazing pieces of architecture with unusual style and personality that are being turned into unique wedding venues. There are abandoned train stations, spaces that are more rubble than buildings, and even spaces that have been completely abandoned without a proper clean-up since the split. But that’s what makes these venues so appealing – there is so much character that is added to your day (and less decisions in terms of decor that would need to happen).
