Identifying the best wedding venue in the United Kingdom is an extremely difficult task. each couple will be celebrating in their own way – and both the ceremony and reception be a reflection of their individual tastes. The perfect venue must combine professional wedding organisers, a fabulous setting and be accessible to the many guests – some of whom would have travelled some distance to share in the celebration. Ideally, it will have accommodation available – or at least available in the immediate vicinity.
Here are some great wedding venues from across the U.K that might be the perfect fit for your nuptials.
- Adlington Hall, Chesire.
If you are looking for a wedding venue that boasts incredibly professional staff and a setting that will simply take your breath away it can be found on the 200 acre Adlington Estate. Adlington Hall recently received recognition as the ‘Best Heritage Wedding Venue in the UK’ – partly due to its simply magnificent gardens – and that staff. The venue has a choice of four different areas to choose from. Two are indoors and two are outside – perfect for the sun-drenched wedding (those outdoor areas are available from April to September). Combining indoor and outdoor experience is highly recommended. Adlington Hall makes use of Barretts Event Caterers who have built an enviable reputation.
2. Barnsley House, the Cotswolds.
The majesty of the Cotswolds should never be underestimated. It has made the area into one of the prime wedding destinations in the U.K. For those who want to revel in the beauty of this region a great choice of wedding venue is Barnsley House. This is the perfect venue for mid-sized parties of around 100 guests. The gardens are spectacular and the on-site ‘The Potager’ restaurant has an impressive menu with much of the produce being grown in the House gardens. For a relaxed evening prior to the ceremony pop over to The Village Pub which serves some great food in a convivial atmosphere. If you’re in the mood for even more relaxation take in a movie at the private 30 seater Barsley House on-site theatre. The Hall’s spa can also help with those re-weeding jitters. This is certainly the venue for those with romance on their mind.
3. The Roman Baths and Pumphouse, Bath.
there are very few wedding venues as steeped in history as this one. The tranquility of the baths and the amazingly preserved nature of the structures simply provide an air of both romance and permanence – the perfect way to embark on a life of married bliss. As the evening falls the waters of the Baths are lit by the soft illumination of torches – making it a welcoming and warm destination. Drinks around the tranquil waters are the perfect way to start off the celebration – and there are two reception areas available – the Pump Room and the Terrace. The Pump Room can accommodate around 160 guests while the terrace is more suitable for intimate gatherings.
Your choice of wedding venue is one that is a reflection of both your past experiences and the celebration is a foundation on which future dreams are built. Find your dream wedding venue today.
