Venue Guides

I’ve said it before but I’ll say it time and time again… we are so spoilt with beautiful wedding venues in the UK. And one of the areas that houses many of those stunning venues? The Cotswolds.

The Cotswolds, encompassing Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and parts of surrounding counties, is an utterly charming part of the UK. Comprising of quaint villages and picturesque landscapes, it’s no surprise that this is where many of my couples choose to hold their big day.

In and around the Cotswolds you’ll find some of the best wedding venues in the UK. From beautiful country houses to historic stately homes and luxury hotels. The area is a hotspot for stunning venues, so I wanted to round up a few of my favourites in this post. Enjoy!

Kirtlington Park is one of those venues that takes your breath away from the moment you drive up. This incredible Palladian mansion is located right in the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside and offers stunning gardens and show-stopping views.
