5 Reasons to Choose a Country House Wedding Venue


You get so much space with a country house wedding and most venues will offer an additional marquee facility on the grounds if you're expecting large amounts of wedding guests. The grounds are usually huge that surround a gorgeous Country or Manor House which gives you room to let your wedding planner design whatever needs be for your wedding day.

Long Weekend Weddings

As most Country House Venues offer exclusivity for their couples, they often only take on a certain amount of weddings per year. However, this is fantastic for those of you who want a 3 day wedding to really get your guests and family involved in the celebrations. Your luxury wedding planner will work with you to create timelines for each individual day of the celebration. This can involve a relaxed first day with food and entertainment for guests whilst you prepare for the big day ahead, the main wedding day itself, and a final day for winding down. How about an exquisite breakfast that you and your guests can tuck into whilst you sit back, relax and think about the wondrous details of your wedding day!


Most Country House Venues will offer accommodation on site so your guests don't have to stay elsewhere and can relax. It can be handy as you won't even need to arrange any transport! Everything is all in one place for you and your guests to feel as if you're having a mini-holiday. Why not go along to your local Country House Venue and scope out the accommodation facilities they have there? It's always exciting to see a big and royal bridal suite that you and your future partner will be in!

Wedding Photography

Think about the amazing background you will get in those wedding day photos. There is always plenty of landscape to create different images and your wedding photographer can help you with this. Whether you are whisked off your feet in front of your Country House Venue, running through the South Downs in heels or even walking hand in hand by a water feature? The possibilities are endless and each wedding venue will be completely individual from the next. Pinterest is a great place for inspirational wedding photo ideas, you can even ask your Country House Wedding Planner for ideas on where would be the best location on site to do this!


Ultimately every Country House, Manor House or Regal Town House you see will be elegant, timeless and sophisticated. You want a wedding that is clean, design-led and full of details. Imagine those elegant floral installations you could create above your tables, fresh flower bouquets created by your florist and even those divine place settings created for your guests by your Country House Wedding Planner.
