Looking for a wedding venue in Oxford that has bags of character but won't bust the budget? Worton Park, in a rustic-chic setting just outside the city centre, is offering 50 per cent off hire of its Blue Room, for bookings made by June 30 2011 (the wedding can be any date). The 100-capacity room has a new conservatory that opens onto a poolside terrace - great for champagne receptions, barbecues and gorgeous photo opps. Catering facilities are provided (though you can organise the food and drink yourselves, should you wish). Indoor furniture and bistro furniture in the Italian courtyard and terrace are also included, and a member of the wedding team will be on hand to help you plan your day. There's room for up to 40 guests in cottages on the estate (from £650 for 10 people) - so you can always make a weekend of it. For more information, call 01865 882644; or visit www.wortonparkweddings.co.uk.
