If you're one of the growing number of couples who have a big budget but only a small guest list for your wedding day and want to create a truly intimate and memorable family affair away from the glitz and loud music of other weddings you've been to, then look no further than Gidleigh Park. A five-hour drive from London, this stunning Tudor mansion set in 107 acres of grounds in the Dartmoor National Park, is an incredibly stylish hotel which can be hired out for a fully private function and can cater for anything between two and 48 guests. Foodie couples among you take note: with their 2-Michelin-Star chef Michael Caines MBE overseeing your wedding breakfast, food will certainly be a talking point - they recommend an eight-course taster menu. Gidleigh also have a local registrar to perform your ceremony on site and a host of local suppliers from florists to cake makers on hand to complete the finishing touches for what could be a truly unique celebration. As for where to spend your first night - we'd recommend the amazing spa suite, set away from the main house and incorporating its own sauna, steam room and underfloor heating and surrounded by breathtaking countryside.
