Sudeley Castle and Gardens

Having been hailed as the most romantic castle in England, Sudeley Castle and Gardens boasts a rich heritage with royal connections, offering a stunning setting for wedding celebrations, with the glorious gardens providing a memorable backdrop and great photo opportunities!

Guests can enjoy canapés and Champagne within the castle’s award winning gardens, while there’s also the option to take full advantage of the glorious grounds and have a marquee on the spacious lawns, with views of the majestic castle completing the picture.

Painswick Rococo Garden

Named by The Independent as one of the top 50 wedding venues in the UK, Painswick Rococo Garden provides a peaceful and romantic setting for intimate weddings, with its six-acre site featuring characterful buildings, a maze, a leafy woodland walk and horticultural delights.

Originally designed in the 18th century, the natural haven is the country’s only surviving complete rococo garden, making it a truly unique venue – and with the garden specifically designed for partying, it’s no surprise that it remains a popular venue!


A unique venue in the heart of the Cotswolds, Matara offers a serene setting complete with formal gardens, rolling parklands and three small lakes which allow guests to soak up the picture-perfect surroundings and reconnect with nature.

From The White Garden with box hedged flower beds and a fountain; to the quintessentially English Herb Garden which is hidden behind an eight-foot Cotswold wall, Matara gives couples plenty of beautiful choice and endless photo opportunities.

Manor by the Lake

An impressive manor house surrounded by seven acres of award-winning gardens, Manor By The Lake offers a wonderful ambience for wedding celebrations, with picture-perfect scenery for those all-important wedding snaps.

Couples are able to say their vows by the lake and have a Champagne reception on the lawn, with the mature woodland, manicured gardens, beautiful lake and Italian walled garden an incredible and memorable backdrop.

Cogges Manor Farm

A unique wedding venue located in Whitney, Cogges Manor Farm is perfect for pretty, rural celebrations, offering two stunning 17th century barns and a manor house, as well as a sprawling lawn, walled garden and orchard.

Boasting more than 15 acres of naturally beautiful grounds, the venue is perfect for nature lovers — and with the chance to snap photos with the farm residents too, it’s also a treat for animal lovers!
