Luxe Country Wedding Venues for a Stylish Cotswolds Wedding
Sometimes, having a hundred and one options can be more challenging than having just one. That's often the case with country wedding venues and is the inspiration for this blog.
With an impressive collection of country manors and luxury barns welcoming weddings from Gloucestershire right down to Somerset, it's easy for the venue that is uniquely perfect for your day to get lost in the mix. I've hand-picked five of the best country wedding venues for an elegant celebration to help inspire you.
Pennard House, Somerset
For Georgian grandeur and a true taste of the country, Somerset's Pennard House should be top of your list. The house is home to more chandeliers and roll-top bathtubs than you could count. Wander through the rose garden and spot the historic church at the edge of the grounds, then prepare to fall dizzyingly in love with the renovated Coach House. With white walls and warm beams, it's the country blank canvas you've been waiting for...
Twyning Park, Gloucestershire
Twyning Park is as fairy-tale outside as it is in, with a riverside location, picturesque grounds and even a secret garden for ultra-romantic couple's photos. This country house venue also effortlessly transitions between old and new. The grade-II listed house's period features sit perfectly beside the contemporary Long Room, complete with lighting suspended from a rustic beam.
Eastington Park, Gloucestershire
Eastington Park delivers on every part of the country manor wedding dream. You get the entire stone house to yourself, including 32 decadent bedrooms, a swoon-worthy spiral staircase for photos and the opportunity to have an outdoor ceremony, all with no curfew in sight!
Stone Barn, Gloucestershire
Cocooned in the heart of the Cotswolds, Stone Barn elevates the traditional barn wedding to entirely new heights. The Ceremony Room oozes romance, with honey stone walls and a roaring open fire. On the other hand, the manicured gardens and surrounding fields create a striking contrast with the Dutch Barns' fairy light-lit metal roof, timber-panelled walls and glazed side. This is the barn wedding venue to choose if you love all-things rustic luxe and black tie.
Marquee weddings give you the ultimate flexibility to style the day exactly to your tastes. You get to choose the view, the scenery and the festoon-lit pathways, and that's before you've done anything inside. It's worth investing in a beautifully designed marquee that complements the location. For example, there are round designs, marquees with chill-out rooms and endless options for adding reveal curtains, elegant dance floors and striking bars.
Choosing the right country wedding venues for you is the first step to saying 'I do'. Once you've booked a venue and set the date, you can source the best suppliers to bring your plans to life. Find out more about how I can capture every dreamy detail of your day.
