in the UK
Getting married in the UK is a dream for so many couples considering a destination wedding. From the charm of the honey stone villages and pastoral scenes of the Cotswolds, to the glamour of central London’s Marylebone and Mayfair, and the centuries-old castles and private estates that decorate the countryside of Scotland and Wales, destination weddings in the UK promise something for everyone.
You could choose a romantic Christian ceremony in a stone chapel on a private estate, filled with flickering candles and personalised readings. Alternatively, opt for a civil ceremony, which can take place under any licensed roofed structure, from open-air garden pergolas to enchanting orangeries, grand halls of country houses to exclusive hotel venues.
Wedding venues in London
Surprise your guests with an unexpected London wedding event location, like the magnificent Natural History Museum, where ancient treasures frame the occasion and offer plenty of talking points for guests. One Marylebone is also certain to surprise. This venue has an enchanting setting beside the famous Regent’s Park, but it’s the picturesque exterior of stone columns and ornate turrets that is truly remarkable.
For a location that exudes classical elegance with world-class service to match, then icons like The Dorchester and Claridges could set the scene for your wedding events. These quintessential British venues have stood the test of time for centuries. And with its panelled ceilings, duck egg blue walls and chandelier lit spaces, The Lanesborough is another excellent option. This venue promises a Regency fairytale for a timeless wedding on the doorstep of Hyde Park.
Because weddings in the UK traditionally occur over one day, arranging pre- and post-wedding events is especially appealing. We suggest a Champagne reception high up the iconic Shard. Your guests may enjoy views of the city skyline from the tallest building in the UK. After the wedding, reminisce over afternoon tea at The Ritz, or a private dining experience at a luxury hotel.
Garden wedding venues in the UK
England‘s reputation for beautiful gardens is celebrated worldwide, and you can even get married in them! Both the Royal Horticultural Society’s Kew Gardens and Wakehurst allow you to celebrate in the midst of the botanic gardens. We recommend their elegant buildings including glasshouses and orangeries for a backdrop that brings the outside in.
In the serene countryside of Wiltshire, manor house and walled garden venue Syrencot delivers true exclusivity. The garden’s curving stone walls, fragrant pathways and luxurious country house accommodation make it perfect for all-inclusive weddings.
Castle weddings in England & Scotland
Leeds Castle in Kent lies in the south east of England, within easy reach of guests travelling from London. Inside, the dramatic halls with high ceilings are a vision of wood panelling and period features for your ceremony and reception. Beyond the ornate grand doorways, beautiful gardens stretch out before you in all the seasons. Take a walk together as newlyweds for photographs or host the Champagne hour outside on a sunny afternoon.
Across the border in Scotland, the twirling pink turrets of Craigievar Castle will take your breath away. Make a fairy-tale entrance in a horse-drawn carriage along the long driveway. Then, entertain all your guests with a private guided tour of the magnificent castle after your ceremony. Complete the proceedings with a tasting of local whiskies that your guests will never forget.

Weddings in England typically take place over one romantic day. On the wedding morning, the bride and groom will prepare separately with their bridal party and groomsmen. It is considered bad luck to see each other before the ceremony. In addition to the main venue, let us organise luxurious accommodations for both bride and groom on the wedding morning, as well as for your guests.
As part of these preparations, the bride will wear something borrowed, something blue, something old and something new, with a sixpence in her shoe. These British wedding traditions bring the couple good luck – as does rain on the wedding day, which tightens the knot the couple will tie.
