TOP LUXURY WEDDING VENUES IN ENGLAND
Some of Jessie & Georgia's favourite luxury wedding venues across England for 2020 and beyond.
1. AYNHOE PARK
Where: Oxfordshire, The Cotswolds
Why we love it: What can we say? It's almost like home to us at Aynhoe now, and truly there is no other wedding venue like it in England... or... anywhere! It's full to the brim with the most incredible art work and installations, and the perfect set up for a special party in the countryside. There is plenty of room for guests to stay on site or at nearby hotels, it's close enough to London to be convenient and far enough away to feel like "proper" countryside.
2. BARNSLEY HOUSE
Where: Gloucestershire, the Cotswolds
Why we love it: An rural boutique wedding venue for smaller weddings or larger marquees in the beautiful grounds designed by Rosemary Verey. The restaurant menus are mouth wateringly delicious and as part of your exclusive hire you can take over the bedrooms here are over at The Village Pub in Barnsley. There's also a pink leather 30-seater cinema, an incredible spa (we have tested tje treatments!) with an outdoor heated pool. Visit: barnsleyhouse.com
3. THE NED
Where: London Why we love it: The event space in this private members club is perfect for city weddings, and incredibly versatile with the entire 6th floor dedicated to events. Not inly is this a super stylish spot to get hitched, but it's also fantastic for international guests who are travelling to London, with 250 bedrooms giving access to the private club rooftop pool, gym, spa, hammam and late-night lounge bar. Visit: thened.com
4. LIME WOOD HOTEL
Where: Hampshire Why we love it: Jessie stayed here for her 30th birthday 5 years ago and hasn't stopped raving about it since. A boutique country house set in the heart of the New Forest National Park (there are wild horses!), with the most incredible spa we have ever been to, in addition to the best restaurant and chefs for your wedding breakfast. The rooms are heavenly, the service impeccable and they atmosphere just wonderful. Visit: limewood.co.uk
5. BABINGTON HOUSE
Where: Somerset Why we love it: It's part of the Soho House brand, but a little different to the rest. It feels much more like a traditional wedding venue, but with all the modern amenities, stylish interiors and special touches that the SH team bring to every club they open. Bonus points for the 18th century chapel on site, the cinema and outdoor/indoor swimming pools, plenty of bedrooms on site, and a cracking Cowshed spa! Visit: babingtonhouse.co.uk
6. SOHO FARMHOUSE
Where: Great Tew, Oxfordshire
Why we love it: There is no denying this luxury private members club is one of our most popular venues local to our flagship studio in The Cotswolds. You have to go to appreciate the scale and set up, but it truly is an amazing wedding or private party venue. We've planned and designed weddings, birthdays, engagements, rehearsal dinners and brunch parties here since it first launched 4 years ago.
7. BLENHEIM PALACE
Why we love it: An incredible stately home with so many incredible event spaces to choose from - the orangery is spectacular and so full of light (perfect for photography!), the grounds are extensive and glorious, and it's all not too far to travel from London.
Why we love it: We confess, we have a soft spot for Claridges and the wonderful history and service you experience as you enter it's doors. It truly is a special, more traditional, luxury wedding venue in London.
