It is such a broad topic to talk about hotel wedding venues in England because from Devon and Dorset to London and Manchester, the breadth of style and opportunity is as vast and diverse as the couples planning their big days.

English hotels come in all shapes and sizes, that will come as no surprise, but when you’re trying to choose one for a wedding, the details become all the more important.  England’s history comes to life in some of its spectacular country house hotels such as Hartwell House in Aylesbury, which was once the home of an exiled Louis XVIII of France, while somewhere like Budock Vean capitalises on a contemporary seaside renovation, spotless hospitality and a spectacular waterside location.

Style and numbers are invariably the starting points when planning a wedding, and England’s hotels offer variety in both.  Whether you’re planning to get married at the hotel in question or simply have your reception there, intimate environments somewhere like centre of Oxford or sweeping estates on the remote cliffs of Devon are all opportunities worth exploring and many of them have wedding planners within their teams who can help to make the planning processes that much easier as well.

Food is a high priority at any wedding, juggling cost and quality is a headache most of us would rather avoid, and once again this is something your hotel can help with.  Delightful details such as locally made wines (English wines appear to be having their moment in the spotlight) and local delicacies such as seafood in the South West at hotels including Burgh Island are the details that make these hotels stand out as wedding destinations.
