Grand Country House Wedding Venues

Large Country House Wedding Venues

Published Jan 2020, Updated Feb 2021 - The search for large capacity manor house wedding venues, stately homes or country house wedding venues is never an easy one to undertake. If you are conducting such a search and looking for the best places to get married, you will have discovered that the vast majority of country house weddings cater for up to 100-120 guests for a sit down meal, without you having to hire a marquee separately and at great additional cost.

The truth is, it can take weeks to find a handful of large wedding venues big enough to seat 200+ family and friends indoors for dinner. And frustratingly the situation is not made any easier by the country houses and stately homes themselves. I'm sure you will have noticed that lots of big wedding venues boast about catering for 150-200+ wedding guests, yet fail to stipulate that the quoted figures relate to outdoor wedding ceremonies and standing receptions! And in order for you to discover the actual seated dining capacity you must waste precious time delving deeper into their websites, inspecting brochures and terms & conditions or even calling them up. That was until now!

Below you will find a sample selection of large country house wedding venues and amazing stately homes, including some of the biggest and best wedding venues in the UK. Please note that we have many more properties besides these, so if you don't see one that ticks all the boxes, do let us know.
