Welcome wedding venue

A private country house wedding venue should combine style and elegance with stunning surroundings, whilst delivering plenty of WOW factor.

If you are looking for the height of luxury for your wedding celebrations then there is many a country house wedding venue to choose from across the UK. 

Whilst the beauty of the venue is of course important, it also needs to be run impeccably if you want to guarantee that your big day goes smoothly. 

Exclusivity and Privacy

With a long sweeping drive and secluded private grounds, a country house wedding venue should offer complete exclusivity to you and your guests throughout your entire wedding celebration.  The house and its grounds being private to you and only you. A peaceful haven where you can truly relax. 

However, consider whether your venue is conveniently located with good transport links to provide you with the best of both worlds.

A Grand Entrance

Country houses come in all shapes and sizes but ideally should have a grand entrance hall to welcome your guests, hinting at the elegance of the day that has yet to unfold. Draped with flower garlands or sparkling with candlelight it will also provide the perfect backdrop for the Bride to showcase the dress of her dreams.

Ceremonial Spaces Galore

Large historical houses should combine English style and tradition with romance, elegance, and stunning surroundings. You should expect to find ceremonial spaces in abundance, providing stunning locations, both indoors and out for a magnificent setting at any time of the year.
