Oh my, there's a moat! As if you need more!

OK, somewhere for your ceremony would be useful, and here at Birtsmorton Court you can choose between a church just steps from medieval Birtsmorton Court's grounds, the Garden Room for up to 200 with a 28-metre aisle for civil ceremonies, or the shaded pergola for an outdoor 'I do'.

The gardens are manicured, the marquee is in situ and the family-run ethos of the venue means there's an 'anything is possible' mindset. Arrival by helicopter? You've got it. Fireworks? They would look marvellous reflected in that moat…

Ceremony capacity: 200; Packages per person: £53

This medieval manor house was painstakingly restored by a couple who will devote just as much care to planning your day.

With the bespoke service, you can add anything from an arrival by helicopter to a fireworks finale. A civil ceremony can take place in the Great Hall, Garden Room or under a gazebo in the White Garden.

For a religious service, a nearby 14th-century church can be reached via a gateway on the grounds.

Ceremony capacity: 200; Food cost per head: £52; House wine: £20; Corkage: £15; Marquee available; Countryside setting
