First off, it is important to consider what type of wedding you want. Do you want a traditional ceremony with a church service followed by a reception? Or do you want something more unique and fun? There are many different options available to suit every bride and groom.

Once you have decided on the type of wedding you would like, it is time to look at specific locations. Herefordshire and the counties around have many beautiful places that can be used for your wedding.


Shustoke Barn wedding ceremony

There are many benefits to having your wedding at a barn, including the following:

  • Barns are beautiful and rustic places to have a wedding.
  • They are often large enough to accommodate a large number of guests, yet intimate enough that you and your guests will feel like family.
  • Barns often have outdoor spaces that can be used for ceremonies or receptions.
  • Barn weddings can be more affordable than weddings at other venues, since they don’t typically require the same level of infrastructure (such as an indoor dance floor or catering kitchen).

Not a big fan of barn weddings? No problem! A stately home offers a number of advantages that can make your wedding day truly special and memorable.

  • First, a stately home provides an elegant and prestigious setting for your wedding. Guests will feel impressed by the beauty of the property and will appreciate all the effort you put into planning your special day.
  • Second, stately homes often come with large ballrooms that can accommodate up to 300 guests. This means you won’t have to worry about running out of space during your reception or having to rearrange tables or chairs mid-ceremony. 
  • Many stately homes also offer stunning views that can be enjoyed from their grounds.

In our time doing weddings at stately home wedding venues Herefordshire and in the Cotswolds, one of our favourites have been Dewsall Court and Brinsop Court. Both are stunning and unique in their own way and offer so many options to the couples for both rainy and sunny days.

Castle estates can be a beautiful and unique venue for weddings. They come in all shapes and sizes, so it is important to consider the size of the estate before choosing it as your wedding venue. Some estates may be too large for a small wedding ceremony, while others may be too small and lack features that would make them ideal for a larger event.

It is also important to consider the surrounding area, as some estates may be in more rural areas while others may be in more populated areas. Ultimately, it is important to choose a castle estate that will fit your wedding vision and needs. Here are just a few castle wedding venues Herefordshire and in the surrounding counties.

  1. Clearwell Castle
  2. Hampton Court Castle
  3. Eastnor Castle
  4. Rowton Castle

When choosing a location for your intimate wedding, there are a few things to consider. First, think about what type of wedding you want. An intimate ceremony in the privacy of your own home may be the perfect fit for you, while others may prefer a more public setting with family and friends in attendance.

Once you have decided on the type of wedding you would like, it is important to think about your budget. Do you want to spend a lot of money on an exclusive venue or do you want to find a less expensive option? Once you have decided on the type of venue and budget, it is time to think about what kind of vibe you would like for your wedding.

If you are looking for something rustic and vintage, then a rural location may be the perfect fit. If, on the other hand, you are more interested in something more modern and sleek, a city center may be better suited. Regardless of the location you choose, make sure to consult with an experienced event planner to ensure that your wedding will be exactly what you envisioned.

The Green Man is one of our favourite intimate wedding venues Herefordshire, because of the amazing food, the charm of their rooms and the proximity of some great views.

When choosing a wedding venue, it is important to consider a few key factors. First and foremost, the venue should be able to accommodate your specific needs and desires. For example, if you are looking for a large space in which to hold your ceremony and reception, then a traditional wedding venue like a church or hall may not be the best choice for you. On the other hand, if you are interested in hosting an intimate affair with just your closest family and friends, then a private residence may be more ideal.

Some wedding venues Herefordshire and in the Cotswolds may be more affordable than others, but it is always worth checking out various options before making a final decision. Additionally, some venues may have cheaper monthly rates if you are willing to commit to a longer term agreement.
