Fairytale Glamour. Watching all those Disney films as you grew up has inspired your day and you want to feel like a princess. So your venue needs to be picture perfect and have that fairytale element to really wow your guests. Clivedon House is a real winner with its beautiful architecture and intimate wedding gazebo.
St Catherine's Point, Sandrock Road, Niton, Isle of Wight
If you're after something a little more quirky for your 'happily ever after' then The Enchanted Manor on the Isle of Wight is the venue for you. Stunning artwork by world famous artist Josephine Wall adorns the interiors giving it that whimsical touch...and it has the benefit of housing all your guests for that alluring exclusivity!
The Esplanade, Fowey
Coastal Retreat. Do you like to feel a sea breeze and the sound of the ocean waves? There is no better time to make the most of stunning sea views than on your wedding day and with multiple backdrops for those all important wedding photos including the stunning Victorian lift, the Fowey Hotel in picturesque Cornwall is the place to be. Imagine looking out across the water to the ancient fishing village of Polruan and further out to sea on a balmy summer’s evening, as you and your guests relax on the terrace after a wedding breakfast of fresh, local coastal produce.
Hollin Lane, Millhouse Green, Sheffield
Festival Vibes. Festival weddings are becoming more and more popular, with barns and fields offering the blank canvas that allows you to really create something that reflects the personal touches of you as a couple. A festival wedding is the ultimate party and Smallshaw Cottages will not disappoint. With the run of the cottages, space for a traditional marquee or a more festival themed tipi and even an outdoor hot tub, it will provide the perfect setting for your informal day. Go for a modern boho theme or amp up the festival vibe with hay bale seating for your ceremony - the possibilities are endless. When it comes to accommodating guests, lots of venues now allow tents to be pitched too!
The Quay, Cley-next-the-Sea, Holt
Something Unique. Fed up with run of the mill (no pun intended) wedding venues, and want to celebrate somewhere different to impress your guests? Clay Windmill is the perfectly quirky wedding venue with the ceremony usually taking place in the wonderful circular sitting room which dates back to 1713. Or, if the English weather prevails and you want to hold your ceremony outside with the Windmill standing proud in the background, then this is possible too. Dream team Sarah and Simon have a 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude to wedding panning and will make the experience truly one to remember. You can even hire this location in its entirety to make the most of the experience.
North Leigh, Witney
Country Manor Chic. Always dreamed of a beautiful manor house wedding with rolling countryside views and a touch of elegance? Eynsham Hall on the Oxfordshire/Cotswolds boarder will make this dream reality with its Jacobean architecture, peaceful setting and gloriously renovated interiors. It's a delight for all the senses. With your personal wedding specialist and complimentary food and wine tasting you'll feel in the safest of hands and be able to relax on the day knowing that it will be perfect, they will quite literally lay down the red carpet for you.
La Route de la Baie, St Brelade's Bay, Jersey
Destination Wedding. Does a destination wedding make your heart skip a beat but the logistics and expense of the travel and getting all your family and friends there bring you crashing back down to earth? We have the ideal compromise. L'Horizon Beach Hotel and Spa in Jersey. If you still want more than the location right on the beachfront , then the romantic sunset view over the bay from the private terrace will seal the deal. Each room is elegant and perfectly suited to host your dream wedding from an intimate ceremony to a party to be remembered. The attentive events team will be sure to make your wishes their command. For added glamour make sure to book a private plane across the channel and really arrive in style!
43/44 Marine Parade, Brighton

Drakes is one of Brighton's premiere boutique hotels and with this comes years of luxury expertise and a wedding package that covers everything from fine dining to flower garlands and accommodation for your guests.
