Three Reasons to Consider a Country House Wedding

The wedding planning process is an exciting and, at times, stressful one. There is a whole host of things to consider, and where exactly you’d like to tie the knot may just be one of the biggest decisions you have to make.


Everything needs to be just perfect, from the setting to the service and the general ambiance needs to really suit you as a couple. There are lots of little personal touches you can add throughout the day such as these suggestions from Buzzfeed, but the venue itself really does lay the foundations.

We think that a country house is a perfect place to get married, so we’ve listed three reasons why we’ve drawn this conclusion in case you need a little bit of inspiration. Read on to find out whether a country house wedding may be right for you!

The convenience

At a country house wedding venue, the staff will usually have a wealth of experience when it comes to weddings, so you can relax knowing you are in good hands.

Wedding packages will include everything you need to make your big day really special, and what’s even better is the ability to have your important guests staying in the hotel with you, which is great if you have relatives coming from out of town.

The photos

A country house offers the perfect backdrop for stunning wedding day photos, and it goes without saying that this is one of the most important elements of your big day. Having memories to treasure is so important, as often your wedding day seems to fly past in the blink of an eye, and you’ll certainly want something to hold on to afterwards.

There will be plenty of opportunities to snap some beautiful memories with a country house wedding, whether that be in the house itself, the grounds, or surrounding countryside.

The peace and quiet

At venues such as the three fantastic Lake District Country Hotels near Windermere, you are able to hire out the whole country house for exclusive use on your wedding day and night, which means you can truly relax without any interruptions from other parties.

Weddings can be such a stressful affair that the ability to unwind and have your own space can be a saving grace. From arriving for your wedding to the wedding breakfast the next day, it will be just you and your loved ones, so you can feel right at home.

And of course, the beautiful Lake District setting is enough to put anybody at ease. Enjoy views of the lake and surrounding fells, and the fresh air of the countryside during your stay and leave feeling truly revitalised and ready to start the rest of your lives together.

We hope this has given you some inspiration and outlined a couple of reasons why a country house makes a really great choice of venue to hold your big day!
