If you or your partner are into the more scary side of life, you may be wondering how to incorporate this into your wedding. You may think it’s impossible, but it’s not. A haunted wedding venue is a perfect option to include on your special day.
It may sound strange, but the architecture is usually stunning so it adds to the ambience and it would be a cool and unusual twist.
Here are six haunted wedding venue examples:
– Ohio State Reformatory, Mansfield, Ohio
This Gothic-styled building in Ohio was formerly a correctional facility which housed more than 155 000 men. There are 215 graves outside the building and many visitors claim to have experiences with paranormal entities.
There have been reports of guests being pushed and punched, cellar doors slamming closed, shadow sightings, and voices in the corridors.
While the history of the building is troublesome, the architecture is stunning and makes for a great wedding venue.
– Ackergill Tower, Caithness, Scotland
Ackergill Tower has been standing since the 14th century. It’s lush green grass and wide-open spaces make for a perfect wedding backdrop.
It is said that the ghost of Helen Gunn, also known as the green lady, roams the grounds of the castle. She was abducted and kept in the tower and in an attempt to escape she fell to her death.
– Hampton Court Palace, Surrey
The palace was once home to Kind Henry VIII. You can imagine that it’s interior is extravagant and perfect for a wedding. In fact, the palace is one of the most famous historic wedding venues in the UK.
Apparently, there are quite a few ghosts roaming the halls. Ghosts include Skeletor, The Grey Lady, and two of King Henry VIII’s wives, Catherine Howard and Jane Seymour.

Johnny Cash used to live in this house. HOW COOL IS THAT?!?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It just dawned on me that I never posted anything from this amazeballs destination wedding at @rosehallweddingsandevents in Jamaica.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you’ve been following me for a while and watch my stories you probably saw me post a bunch about this place back in May. Rosehall is a beautiful old estate just outside of #montegobay, #jamaica. It’s at the bottom of the #whitewitchgolfcourse (which you may remember me posting about a few years ago) and is supposedly haunted by the white witch herself. Needless to say it’s old, spooky and hella gorgeous. I did a 5 min happy dance when I found out this was where Mark & Stacey we’re having their ceremony. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #adventureweddingphotographer#torontoweddingphotographer#torontoweddingphotographers#lookslikefilm #greenweddingshoes #theknot #belovedstories#theweddingpic #freespirit#muskokawedding #offbeatbride#muskokaweddingphotographer#guelphweddingphotographer#internationalweddingphotographer#destinationweddingphotographer#theweddingring #oncewed#intimatewedding#weddingphotomag#junebugweddings#kwawesome #kitchenerweddingphotographer #waterlooweddingphotographer #kwweddingphotographers #loveandwildhearts #allthemrealfeels #rosehall
A wedding in a tropical paradise like Jamaica is perfect! Right? This Jamaican venue offers more than what you expect from a Caribbean Island. The wedding venue is home to the spirit of a widow named the White Witch.
In 1820, the house was owned by John Rose Palmer. He married a woman named Annee. The legend says that Annee had black magic powers which she used to murder Palmer, her next two husbands, and many lovers.
People say she still resides in Rose Hall.
– Rockwood Park & Museum, Delaware
The venue offers indoor and outdoor spaces for your ceremony and also does catering. On top of that, paranormal investigation tours are available too! Add an extra twist, and have a paranormal investigation on the eve of your wedding.
The venue claims that you have the chance to meet “long lost family members” who still reside in the mansion.
