Your jaw will drop when you step inside the original chapel on this superb estate. Previously, it wasn't possible to get hitched within the house itself, but, late last year, the Marquis and Marchioness of Landsdowne opened their doors for wedding blessings in the chapel, in which generations of the family have been wed.

THE ULTIMATE STATEMENT SETTINGS

From November to March, receptions can be held in the Sculpture Gallery (up to 32 guests) or the Orangery (up to 100 guests). If you want a larger event, however, a marquee can be set up on the terraces all year round - simply divine. 

Ceremony capacity: 100; www.bowood.org
