As any princess bride will tell you, it's all about making an entrance.

Sweeping up Cliveden's near-endless drive (we think a horse-drawn carriage or a vintage Rolls will do nicely), past the bubbling Fountain of Love and up to the majestic house itself is about as memorable an arrival as they come.

Inside isn't any less impressive either. Exchange vows in the Rococo splendour of the French Dining Room, shimmering in gold and mirrors, before moving outside for champagne on the Terrace - the views over the Berkshire countryside will wow your guests.

With 376 acres of National Trust gardens and parkland, there's no shortage of photo opportunities.

Ceremony capacity: 120; Packages per person: £59
