2. Tylney Hall Hotel

Tylney Hall Hotel

Tylney Hall Hotel is ever so romantic. Even as wedding venues go, it’s a cut above many. There are many wedding venues on one estate in which to get married. The mansion boasts the baronial-style Tylney Suite, which has high vaulted ceilings and exposed wooden beams. The room has a minstrel’s gallery for musicians to play from as you walk down the candlelit or flower-lined aisle. For something more intimate but alfresco, couples can opt for the incredible stone gazebo in the Italian Garden, full of beautiful blooms and luscious greenery.

Despite the modern commodities and amenities at Tylney Hall Hotel, this wedding venue has a real sense of old-world charm. Even though you might have a band playing live, followed by a DJ with a light show, you’ll still be swept up in the history of this building. And you’ll be glad you did.

4. Mercure Box Hill Burford Bridge Hotel

Mercure Box Hill Burford Bridge Hotel

You might have thought that getting married in a barn would be the last thing you’d ever want, but we’re here to assure you that this refurbished barn venue is the place to say ‘I do’. Mercure Box Hill Burford Bridge Hotel is a rustic but beautiful building. Long gone are the animals, the hay, and the farm yard smell! During the day, you can exchange vows beneath all that remains – high ceilings, original 17th-century exposed beams, natural light, and an aisle awaiting your walk. Or, if an evening ceremony is more your style, vow yourselves to each other under a blanket of twinkling fairy light. No matter which, it’s sure to be a magical moment.

The Tithe Barn also has its own private bar for you and your guests, licensed to serve until 1am, so nothing is stopping you from enjoying the day and night with your guests.

You don’t have to get married in a castle for a fairytale wedding, right? But it sure helps! Farnham Castle is the place to make Disney Princesses green with envy! If you choose to say ‘I do here, you’re sure to have the beautiful wedding of your dreams and a day your guests will remark upon with glee for years to come.

Exchange vows in Lantern Hall with its impressive stone arches and beautiful lancet windows. Choose a gorgeous garden ceremony on the East Lawn or Great Lawn. There are also two historic chapels to choose from – The Norman Chapel and The Bishop’s Chapel – each beautiful in their own way.

Afterwards, enter the great hall as a ‘just married’ couple and celebrate amongst the stained glass windows, magnificent gold-framed portraits, grand fireplace and inviting dance floor (open ‘til late, of course) and rest assured your guests will be impressed!

6. Grim’s Dyke Hotel

Grim's Dyke Hotel

Grim’s Dyke Hotel is a 19th-century country house on an estate of 40 rolling acres of stunning gardens and natural woodland. It is the perfect place for a countryside wedding, that’s not too rural and is well connected enough that all your guests can arrive with ease. It is a true oasis of calm and serenity in bustling northwest London.

This four-star venue reminds me of the beautiful Shibden Hall of Gentleman Jack fame. That alone should be enough to get you dialling their number! It’s a beautiful red brick building with bright white accents and exposed wooden beams. Inside, it is elegance and refinement. The beautiful venue sports wooden panelling, high ceilings and grand open fireplaces, yet there’s a simplicity to the place that is beautiful. It invites you to put your stamp on your special day.

7. The Talbot Ripley

The Talbot Ripley

The Talbot Ripley is a lovely ivy-strewn red brick hotel with an adjacent refurbished barn. It’s the epitome of rustic romance. Whether you wish to get married amongst the hay bales or beneath a shiny chandelier, it’s all possible, and in the barn, no less!

Or say ‘I do’ in the hotel venue, which boasts elegance and beauty by the tonne. It’s hard to imagine there is a dream wedding scenario in your head that isn’t possible here at The Talbot Ripley!

This venue has a late license too, which is great because if you can dance until the early morning hours, there’s no need to rush through dinner. You’ll get to savour every moment of this dining experience with your friends and family.

Inside, the wedding suites are lined with windows so that you may enjoy oodles of natural light and panoramic views throughout your special day.
