My Perfect Venues For an English Country Garden Wedding!

My guest blogger Miss Lady Amy is away for the week today so .. inspired by some lovely sunshine in my own garden this afternoon ... I've decided to look at some gorgeous English Country Garden style wedding venues for you.
Here are my favourites! ....

The first venue is the gorgeous Gants Mill in Somerset ... I came across this venue a while back and just think the setting is so beautiful and picturesque! Your photos will look amazing amongst their gorgeous flower gardens and you can get married in the lovely gazebo and have a reception in a marquee.
Visit for more information

The next venue is the lovely Slaugham Place in Sussex.
The dramatic, four-hundred-year-old, listed, Grade II* ruins of Slaugham Place, a great Elizabethan manor house, have been restored under the supervision of English Heritage an provide a fantastic wedding venue as the ancient ruins are surrounded by twelve acres of grounds including formal gardens, bridges, a river and wonderful old trees... perfect for a marquee wedding reception ( this venue isn't licensed for civil ceremonies).
Find more information at

 Alternatively check out the gorgeous in Devon ... perfect setting for a gorgeous country garden wedding... I love the beautiful wooden seating area and pavilion for civil ceremonies!

And finally for those of you a little further north ... There is the fabulous Holdsworth House near Halifax. You can get married in one of the gorgeous rooms or in the historic garden gazebo in part of the gorgeous gardens.... visit

I hope this has given you a few ideas for your wedding venue.
Visit the blog again on Friday as I've got some fabulous ideas for your wedding cake and dessert tables!

    What a lovely post.I am particularly loving the Gants Hill venue and the lovely maze at Holdsworth House.

  2. Great stuff from you, man. Ive read your stuff before and youre just too awesome. I love what you’ve got here, love what youre saying and the way you say it. You make it entertaining and you still manage to keep it smart. I cant wait to read more from you. this is really a great blog.

  3. Thanks for the lovely compliments 'New Zealand Wedding'

  4. Each garden has its own unique atmosphere, Nikki. I must say, the Japanese garden is a warm and calm garden. While the English garden, on the other hand, shows elegance and majesty. You can tell, by their intricate designs that they both have a noble touch: the bush mazes, the sprawling vast lands and manors.
