Country House & Stately Home Wedding Venues FAQ's

As with all wedding venues, costs for stately home and country house weddings vary, but you may be surprised at how affordable some of the options can be! You don’t always need to have an A-list budget to get your own country house for your wedding. If you’re looking to cut costs, then consider a midweek wedding or marrying in the low season, such as early spring or late autumn. Winter weddings work perfectly for stately homes too, as they often have large fireplaces and cozy wood-panelled rooms.

Many country house wedding venues will offer you venue hire on an exclusive use basis. This means that the venue is yours alone for the duration of your wedding. Sometimes this will be for your wedding day alone, and in other cases, you can hire your wedding venue for an entire weekend for you and your guests. This may incur an extra charge, but if you want a truly luxury getaway for guests with catering staff on hand, then this could be the perfect wedding weekend for you.

Country houses come with plenty of original features, such as sparkling chandeliers, sweeping staircases and romantic statues. Play up the drama of your surroundings with an equally glamorous wedding dress! Long trains, cathedral-length veils and ballgown skirts look right at home in the ballrooms and art galleries of a manor. Vintage details and classic fabrics like lace are perfect too, as they're reminiscent of English socialites.
