Be one of the first to say your vows at historic Osborne, the family home of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in East Cowes on the Isle of Wight. Newly licensed for ceremonies, this nineteenth century Italian-inspired country estate has elegant indoor and outdoor spaces for both weddings and receptions - for the latter, you can have up to 2,500 guests! We love the Durbar Lawn by the house for a marquee party, or head to the private beach where you can celebrate overlooking the Solent. Take unforgettable photographs in the Walled Garden - one of the last remaining parts of the original eighteenth century landscaping. For weddings in colder months, the exotic Durbar Room is a state banqueting hall designed by Lockwood Kipling (Rudyard's father) and used to play host to Queen Victoria's ceremonial dinners and favourite theatric entertainments. Guests will love the ornate Indian-inspired interiors - it's fit for a princess.
