Hey guys, welcome to our blog … we are the Crawleys – Multi award winning Cheshire Wedding Photographers travelling UK wide and internationally. With many couples now deciding to have smaller weddings, or ‘micro weddings‘ that meet with the current regulations of 15 people or less, we thought it would be a great idea to do the leg work for you and find some Airbnb properties that could work as your wedding venue. Imagine having your close family and friends together for a long weekend of brunches, BBQs, dips in the swimming pool (yes, a number of these feature indoor/outdoor pools), and of course, witnessing you saying “I do” – why not have a humanist ceremony in the garden | by the swimming pool | on the beach | by a river … congratulations on your engagement!
