When choosing your wedding venue, the decision to marry in the city or the country is one of the first you’ll need to make as an engaged couple. Whilst the hustle and bustle of a centrally based location is a plus-point for many, with the travel links of the city offering optimum convenience for the bride, groom and guests, there really is nothing like a British countryside wedding.

In this blog post, we take a closer look at just some of the reasons why you should head to the country to find your wedding venue.

So many timeless venues to choose from

The choice of wedding venues may be a little thinner on the ground than in the city, but where the countryside lacks in quantity it makes up for in quality. Our collection of hand-picked country house wedding venues offers plenty of food for thought as well as a number of charming locations to say “I do”.

The CHW collection spans the very best of the British countryside to bring the ultimate timeless touch to weddings big and small. Explore our country wedding venues right here.

A scenic setting for your nuptials

Whether you’re planning an ultra-cosy autumn or winter wedding, or have your heart set on the outdoor wedding ideas that a spring or summer wedding date is made for, a country wedding venue delivers beauty both inside and out for you and your guests to enjoy. This means that whatever the weather, you’re certain to have the celebration of your dreams.

As well as having the opportunity to enjoy all your wedding venue has to offer on the day, the scenic settings that each and every one of our country houses promise a wedding album that you’ll be proud to look at for years to come.

A big day built on experience

Making your wedding day dreams come true isn’t easy. In fact, it takes the average couple around 12 to 18 months of rigorous planning to prepare for their wedding. Your first task is of course to pick a wedding venue that you love, but your choice of wedding venue could be the ticket to a smoother, more enjoyable wedding planning experience.

By booking one of our country houses for your wedding, you’ll benefit from collaborating with a family owned and run business with more than 30 years’ of experience. Every couple will have one of CHW’s Personal Wedding Managers to support them from the moment they book their venue to the end of their special day.

Be inspired by your surroundings

Each and every season offers endless inspiration that could enhance your wedding day in more ways than one. A quintessential country wedding venue is surrounded by the natural beauty that can influence everything from your wedding décor and entertainment to your wedding menu, flowers and outfits.

Autumn in particular is a stunning season to take inspiration from, especially considering the views of surrounding countryside from our beautiful venues. Here Wedding Planner details how the colours of this season could play a crucial role in your wedding day:

“Autumn brings a collection of absolutely beautiful colours, which can add a real sense of laid back luxury and bring the seasonal element into your special day. If you start by looking at the flowers that are in bloom from late September onwards, you start to get some beautiful darker pinks and berries. There is a lot of foliage available and reds are also another striking choice. Mixing these in with navy and hints of gold or silver can create a lovely mood and setting.”
