Whether it's for your hen, honeymoon or the wedding itself, this hotel has something for everyone...

THE ULTIMATE WEDDING VENUE GUIDE

So many places to party

Here your reception options really are limitless. Simply pick your perfect room for the evening do (the luxe sitting room, above, perhaps or the elegant restaurant?) or opt for the Exclusive Use Package, which allows you to hire out the entire hotel. Want something outdoorsy? Enjoy an alfresco picnic or barbecue meal at the restored Deerhouse, or pitch a marquee in the grounds and let guests marvel at the scenery. (An Exclusive Use Package costs from £9,500 for one night, B&B only, while double rooms start at £165)

I do… with a view

Just look at that turret! Swinton Park in North Yorkshire cuts an impressive figure, rising up from 200 acres of deer park, gardens and lakes. Pick your ceremony spot from St Mary The Virgin Church, the 100-seater library, or the elegant Panelled Room, which seats 65. Our favourite is the Lister Room, on the turret's first floor - with space for just 10 guests (Ceremony packages cost from £500, www.swintonpark.com/weddings)

THE BEST STATELY HOMES WHERE YOU CAN WED

Time out for him

If your man's had enough of seating plans, send him to the Bird of Prey Centre, which has 12 hawks, falcons and owls - no stay required. (A Falconry Taster Experience costs from £25 per person, www.birdsofprey.me.uk)

Keep the kids happy

Say thank you to your mini 'maids with a course at The Cookery School. Your little ones will be shown the basics, including how to make bread. Jealous? There are also adult classes, including The Ultimate Sunday Lunch taught by a Michelin-star-trained chef. (A Mini Chefs course costs £50 per child)

RUSTIC ROMANCE: THE BEST BARN WEDDING VENUES

Spa out

Take your mum to reboot those bridal batteries at Swinton's spa. There are six treatment rooms to choose from, as well as a relaxation lounge and small exclusive-use spa on the ground floor, with a cedarwood hot tub, Jacuzzi and sauna. Opt for a Jessica Luxury Manicure, then enjoy a massage, facial and therapy treatment using Thalgo, Daniel Sandler and Perron Rigot luxe products. The Spa is getting  a refurbishment this year - another reason to stop by. (A Day Spa Experience costs from £90,while a manicure starts at £35)

Hire a hut with your hens

A stay in a hut without electricity might not sound like your idea of luxe hen fun but the 'Bivouac' takes glamping to a new level, with six woodland shacks (inset), eight yurts and a 12-bed cabin. Every shack has a toilet and shower (phew), as well as a wood burner to keep you snug. To make the party vibe glam, indulge in a cocktail-making class before relaxing in the hot tub with your boozy creation. (A Woodland Shack costs from £395 for three nights, www.thebivouac.co.uk)
