Why choose a Shawbrook wedding loan?

Every couple is unique. And, with Shawbrook, every wedding loan is too.

We believe in doing things differently. So, unlike many high street banks, we consider each application individually.

Weddings — and honeymoons — can be expensive but spreading the cost can help you start your married life with fewer financial worries. Having access to cash to pay for venues, caterers, photographers etc. can even help you negotiate a better price.

Applying for a quote

When you apply for a quote, we’ll give you a clear, guaranteed, and personalised rate upfront. But don’t worry, you can shop around for the best deal – there’s no obligation and no impact on your credit score.

If you do decide that we’re the one for you, we’ll give you a fixed monthly repayment plan set right from the start. So, you’ll always know what’s what before you tie the knot.

Wedding Loans FAQs

A wedding loan is an unsecured loan taken out with the specific purpose of covering all or part of the cost of a wedding.

With a Shawbrook wedding loan, you can borrow between £1,000 and £35,000, paid back over a set period (between one and seven years) with a fixed interest rate.

It is up to the borrower what wedding expenses they choose to cover with their loan.

Whether a wedding loan is a ‘good idea’ or not depends on your circumstances.

If, for example, you have a poor credit score, a lender may offer you a high interest rate which means the amount you end up paying back could be costly.

But if you have a good credit score, you may be offered a lower interest rate than other forms of financing, such as a credit card.

At Shawbrook, when you ask for a quote, we’ll provide a guaranteed, personalised rate. This means that you’ll always understand how much you’ll pay back before you agree to take out a loan.

For more information about whether a wedding loan is the right option for you, visit our wedding guide.

An unsecured loan is a loan that’s not secured against your assets, such as your home or car.

Because these loans are higher risk for lenders than secured loans, they’re less likely to be offered to those with lower credit scores. But, as always, Shawbrook makes each loan offer decision on each applicant’s circumstances.

Don't just take our word for it

Thanks to our consistency and customer focus, we have won awards for best unsecured lender and been awarded an excellent rating on Trustpilot.
