Choosing Your Wedding Venue

When choosing your wedding venue, first and foremost choose the type of wedding that you want as that will be the basis for setting your budget. 

If you have a theme for your wedding it is helpful to pick a venue that is going to compliment the whole theme and styling. The venue that you pick will also determine how many guests to invite.

A rule of thumb is to go out and look around and book your eventual venue approximately 12-18 months ahead of your wedding date.

There are so many options out there for the modern bride ... so whatever you decide enjoy the process the venues will help to cut down on the stress of planning your big day.

Hellens Manor - Herefordshire

Hellens is a beautiful historic manor house in Much Marcle, Herefordshire. A totally unique and exclusive venue for a tailor-made wedding in an idyllic setting. It has beautiful gardens, acres of wildflower meadows, ancient woodland, apple orchards, a labyrinth and a dovecote. We think you won’t find a lovelier venue for your wedding ceremony and reception! You can choose between two fabulous venues for civil ceremonies. Our oak-panelled Music Room in the Manor House is licensed for 60 guests, whereas there is plenty of room for up to 120 guests in the Great Barn. With its beams and vaulted ceiling, the Great Barn is just right for you to add your personal touch – so your wedding can be as individual as you are. What’s more, our beautifully renovated Georgian Stables is ideal for your overnight stay. We can provide the perfect venue and professional planning so that all you need to bring is your imagination!
