Country Wedding Venues

It’s easy to understand the appeal of a country wedding: the scenery, the privacy, the timeless grandeur. Stately homes, manors and country hotels will compliment your big day with the finer details that might seem coldly absent in a more modern, urban setting.

They have the space, too, and the opportunity to have photographs taken without crass neon signs, streams of cars and voyeurs watching carrier bag in hand from across the street. A rural venue doesn't just provide the four walls for a ceremony; it provides the sense of setting to create an unforgettable occasion.

Below, we’ve selected some of the country venues from our same-sex wedding directory. If one takes your fancy, then feel free to click through to find out more.
