Large Country Houses and Mansions for Weddings and Wedding Receptions

weddingAnyone who has got married recently will appreciate the difficulties involved in finding just the right venue for a wedding reception. 

You may just be looking for a suitable place which can supply a certain quality of catering and service or self-catering accommodation for your guests and a large hall where you can organise your own catering. 

Attractive grounds with enough space for a marquee may be another requirement.  Or, a pretty setting for photographs.

At certain licensed houses and mansions it is possible to hold the wedding ceremony at your venue, do take a look at the large houses and mansions which are licensed for weddings listed above.

A self-catering venue is excellent for the smaller wedding. Usually only about 22-30 can be accommodated in a large country house or mansion but it is always possible to find additional accommodation in nearby holiday cottages, B&Bs or hotels.  You will most likely have to marry in a local church or registry office and hold the reception in a large country house or mansion although certain houses are licensed for wedding ceremonies. Some of them have extensive grounds which are suitable for marquees.


Also do take a look at cottages for honeymoons where you can enjoy something special - that touch of luxury! Every newly-wed couple has their dream honeymoon location; for some it's turquoise sea in an exotic paradise a long way distant, for others with less time and perhaps budget for a faraway destination may prefer a fairytale location closer to home. It helps to go somewhere beautiful with awe-inspiring views and to rent that small cottage for 2 in a secluded setting.

Recording your wedding and precious moments

A good photographer is the difference between ordinary snapshots and works of art. Looking back on your wedding photographs in years to come, you will appreciate those well-arranged photographs of your special day and the guests who came to celebrate.
