Why You Should Consider A Country House As Your Wedding Venue: Wedding Wednesday

Picking a venue is both one of the most important and daunting decisions during the wedding planning process. Even if you have a rough idea in mind of the sort of venue that would suit your personality, you’ll still want to consider all the options and do plenty of research before deciding. This is also one of the first things you’ll do when starting the process. In fact, experts recommend finding a venue at least 12-18 months in advance of the big day.

For many people, a classic country house remains one of the most popular options. Tying modernity in with tradition, these majestic spots can contribute to an atmosphere of enchantment and romance that few other venues can replicate. Whether you’re already sold on a country house or are still weighing up your options, here are three reasons why it could be the right choice for you.


If you’ve always wanted to get married in complete privacy with only the eyes of your nearest and dearest on you, a country house venue is an excellent choice. While city weddings can be just as beautiful, there is ultimately a lack of privacy, with more members of the public likely to be lingering in the background. However, when you hire a country house, you will have multiple acres of land all to yourselves for the day, adding to the romance and charm of the magical occasion.

What’s more, having this space gives you the opportunity to capture the most beautiful photos for your wedding album, with no one else around to get in the way. Lean on the rural aesthetic in your photos and make the most of having your own corner of the countryside all to yourselves.

Support with suppliers

As anyone who has planned their own wedding will testify, trawling through endless lists of potential suppliers and vendors can be a tiresome part of the wedding planning process. When you decide to get married at a country house that’s a recognized wedding venue, they will be able to support you every step of the way.

Often these venues have their own lists of recommended suppliers from in and around the local area. Not only will this save you time, but it can be reassuring to know that your entertainment, food vendors, florists and other suppliers will be familiar with the venue so there are no surprises on the day.

It could perfectly align with your theme

If you’re dreaming of a rustic wedding then a grand countryside manor is the perfect option for you. Without adding any decoration, the venue in itself will provide you with the perfect backdrop for your traditional countryside wedding. But if you really want to lean into the theme, tie the rustic and rural aesthetic into your attire, decoration and entertainment. Draw inspiration from your surroundings and embellish the venue with autumnal colors, a floral inspired cake and wildflower decorations.

Again, the staff at your venue will be well versed in adding some natural finishing touches to bring the venue to life, so make sure to ask for their advice and suggestions.
