Here are five of the most enviable venues across the UK for a little inspiration:
A Grade I listed stately home, Allerton Castle boasts 45 bedrooms, an 80-foot Great Hall, and stands within 6 protected acres of North Yorkshire countryside. Built in the nineteenth century by the Lord Mowbray, Segrave, and Stourton as a testament to his monumental position within the aristocracy, the building's gothic styling defies description.
You'll enter the Great Hall from the exquisite double staircase, and make your vows beneath the magnificent beamed ceiling, surrounded by carvings, balconies, and the light streaming down through stained glass windows. Afterwards, retire to the Conservatory of Memorial Gardens to celebrate.
Sefton Park Palm House
Built in 1896, and taking inspiration from The Crystal Palace, the Sefton Park Palm House is a wedding venue like no other. This three-tiered dome conservatory is filled with over 300 plants from more than 50 countries, making it one of the most exotic venues in the country.
Positioned in Liverpool's Grade I listed Sefton Park, you'll walk down the aisle amid the scent of flowers and plants from far-off lands, with the sky above you shining down through 3,710 separate panes of glass.
This Victorian country house is nestled amongst 110 acres of rolling countryside. Modelled in the Italianate style of the mid-nineteenth century, the building enjoys luxurious interiors, lavish ceilings, and numerous carvings. Tying the knot in Down Hall feels like stepping into a fairy tale.
With a number of suites available – catering for anywhere from 32 to 190 guests – you can invite all your friends and family, or enjoy an intimate affair. Your needs will all be taken care of by the Hall's dedicated wedding coordinators, while your meal will be prepared by the world-class onsite chef.
Situated within 375 acres of County Durham countryside, Rockliffe Hall is a 5-star resort that boasts one of the best golf courses in Europe, a 50,000 square foot luxury spa, and the renowned Orangery restaurant.
Weddings take place in either the sprawling Rockliffe Suite or the stunning 18th Century Old Hall. A professional Master of Ceremonies provides regal treatment, and your vows may take place beneath either the ivy-covered Garden Arch or in the marble-pillared hall.
Built in the Regency Era – and used as a stand-in for Balmoral in ‘The Queen' - Blairquhan Castle is found in Ayrshire, and built in the Tudor Revival style with crenelated walls and large windows.
With room to entertain 100 guests, Blairquhan has become an incredibly popular venue, you can either stay within the beautiful saloon or take the festivities outside in the lovingly landscaped gardens.
All of these outstanding locations book up fast, so make sure you call early to secure the ideal venue for your big day.
