Frequently Asked Questions on Country House and Stately Home Wedding Venues in Gloucestershire

How much do country house venues charge for wedding hire?

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! An extravagant budget isn't essential to get your own stately home in Gloucestershire 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. Country house venues are ideal for winter weddings, as they often have large fireplaces and cozy wood-panelled rooms.

Can I hire a country house in Gloucestershire for the wedding weekend?

If you're looking for exclusivity from your venue then many country house wedding venues and stately homes can offer you just this. 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 an exclusive, private retreat for guests with catering staff on hand, then this could be the optimal choice for your wedding weekend. You will be able to find exclusive use country houses in Gloucestershire using our venue filters.

What style of wedding gown will suit my wedding in a stately home?

Stately homes in Gloucestershire 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! Elegant trains, long veils and ballgown skirts look right at home in the ballrooms and art galleries of a manor. Romantic fabrics and vintage lace are ideal, as they're reminiscent of English socialites. Whatever dress you decide to wear on your wedding day, you will be able to find your dream country house in Gloucestershire on Guides for Brides.
