Built by the Venetian architect Giacomo Leoni in the early 1730s, the real showstopper here is the gasp-inducing double-height Marble Hall with its intricately carved ceiling.

That's not to say that the rest of this stately wonder isn't impressive. There's also the elegant Tapestry Room for your ceremony and the meticulously landscaped gardens, which equal wedding album heaven.

For larger parties, you can put a marquee on the East Lawn.
