All romantic ramparts and turreted towers, Belvoir Castle, with its almost laughably ideal hilltop setting, cuts a dramatic figure from its privileged position.

WED IN ONE OF THESE STATELEY SETTINGS

The castle is still home to the Duke and Duchess of Rutland and their family, who are more than accommodating in making it feel like yours for the day. For your ceremony, they'll let you use the Rutland family chapel in the grounds - and even lend you the Duke's sword to cut your cake.

Ceremony capacity; 120; Plate cost per head: £100; www.belvoircastle.com

Belvoir means 'beautiful view' in French and you certainly get that at this magical turreted castle - still the home of the Duke and Duchess of Rutland.

Say 'I do' in the high-ceilinged Guardroom or, for a religious ceremony, opt for the stately family chapel. Follow in fine banqueting tradition with your wedding breakfast in the State Dining Room and continue the party 'below stairs' in the Old Kitchen.

Ceremony capacity: 130; Food cost per head: £97; House wine: £17; Corkage: £15; Countryside setting
