Choosing a wedding venue is a pivotal moment in the wedding planning repertoire.  it’s the dictator of numbers, style, and often the date as well, depending on availability.  The question of whether you’re a country bride or a city bride, a Devon bride or a Scottish bride, all come into play as you navigate a world of gourmet dishes and rustic interiors, country house hotels and historic pubs with rooms.

The beauty of a hotel wedding of course is that these are people who have the talent and skill set to make the whole process easy.  Food is taken care of, all you have to do is choose the dishes you want from a ready and waiting menu; accommodation merely needs to be reserved, and more often than not there’s a wedding planner on site to help you navigate the whole process with ease, leaving you to think about the dress and the guest list.

Across the UK there’s a whole variety of hotels offering an entirely unique and characterful experience.  So often we hear from couples that it is difficult to find a location that means something to them and that represents their own sense of style and character.  These are the hotels that are unique, different and where there’s a boutique hotel it adheres to the true, historic meaning of the term.

Surrounded by beautiful places and things to do, delivering design alongside personalised customer service and more often that not serving up locally sourced cuisine that’s a literal taste of the area in which you have chosen, they are places that we ourselves would choose to celebrate in, and we have collated them to make them easier for you to find too.
