If there is one thing that the UK does spectacularly well, it's country house wedding venues. We are practically tripping over manors, mansions, estates and halls. And while the beauty of the venue is one thing to take into consideration, the venue also needs to be run really well in order to accommodate your wedding. We have seen many a country house wedding on this blog. But we've managed to narrow down the very best country house wedding venues in the UK. 

5 Reasons to Consider Country House Wedding Venues

It's All Yours

Most country house wedding venues offer exclusive use for your wedding day. Which means you get to swan around like Lady of the Manor for an entire day. You also needn't worry about bumping into anyone other than your nearest and dearest or the venue's expert staff. Need to know more about exclusive use? Visit this handy post.

The Perfect Location

Country house more often than not means countryside. When you're celebrating in Great Britain, known for its remarkable countryside scenery and beautiful estate gardens, that is surely something to be taken advantage of. The fact that there are countless amounts of country house wedding venues to choose from, although we have handpicked the UK's best over on The List, means that you can choose an area of the country that you love or holds special meaning to you.

Peace Before The Party

You get the best of both worlds with a serene backdrop to your morning of getting ready and/or your ceremony. While the venue can turn into one giant (civilised or not) house party once the music gets notched up and the rooms get turned around for the evening. Choosing the right venue will let you decide just how much peace vs party you want on your day.

Embrace The Seasons

With those gorgeous country grounds we've already mentioned, you get to draw beautiful inspiration from the seasons. The gardens will look completely different in Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter, so be sure to ask about how the views or any outdoor spots you're interested in will change with the seasons. Taking this into account is a great way to choose a colour palette or theme.

Photo Ops A Plenty

One of the best things about choosing a country house is that your photographer will be spoilt for choice with backdrops. Most country house wedding venues have an array of rooms, nooks and outdoor areas that can be used for stunning wedding photography, whatever the weather. And you don't need to do a thing to make it more beautiful (unless you want to, of course).
