This question is the big one! Your venue selection is arguably the most important decision of your whole wedding planning experience. It determines as many of the practicalities of your day – location, accommodation, capacity – as it does the stylistic elements.
I love venue searches. Finding the right space for a couple that will suit their style and personality, and prove to be just the right sort of canvas on which they can express their love story is always a challenge, but it’s one that brings huge rewards.
If you’re at the beginning of your wedding planning journey and feeling a little overwhelmed with all the choice that’s out there, this post should help. Today I’m looking at a range of different countryside venue types, and some of my favourite examples of each.
THE COUNTRY HOUSE
The UK does elegant country manor houses like no other. If you’re looking for a signature English venue, nestling in gorgeous grounds, including sumptuous accommodation onsite and boasting a wealth of period features, then a country house wedding might well be the right choice for you. There’s an enormous range of options available throughout the country – from majestic lakeside properties to opulent historical gems set in acres of sweeping lawns – here are some of my absolute favourites.
