Wedding Venues with Beautiful Country Gardens

A gallery of our wedding venues showcasing stunning country gardens and outdoor space.

Cain Manor offers stunning country house gardens to enjoy

There are so many benefits to booking a wedding venue with a truly wonderful country garden. From celebrating an outdoor ceremony to enjoying memorable photographs on the lawn, wedding venues with beautiful country gardens look stunning all year round and even if you aren't so lucky with the weather on your big day, there’s no reason as to why you can’t still enjoy the grounds and gardens under an umbrella, even if it is only for a short while. 

Wedding Ceremonies in a Country Garden 

If you’re planning on saying your ‘I do’s’ outdoors, it is best to search for wedding venues with stunning country gardens so that you’re not disappointed upon your arrival. Check to see that the venue has a license to perform outdoor wedding ceremonies and ask if there are restrictions on guest numbers when it comes to your outdoor wedding ceremony. The location of the outdoor structure when it comes to getting married in a country garden may have an effect on the style of footwear you choose. Plus, don’t forget to ask the venue what they plan to do in the instance of bad weather if you’re booking an outdoor wedding. 

Country Garden Wedding Photography 

Whether you tie the knot outside or not, there will be plenty of photographic opportunities for your wedding photographer to embrace when it comes to post-ceremony photography at your venue. Country garden wedding photographs will make for a stunning addition to your wedding album and there’s no doubt that your guests won’t love to take part when it comes to including everyone in that essential group shot. 

A gorgeous field or country garden backdrop could make for the ultimate selection of ‘couple’ wedding photographs; a collection to frame as the perfect memory of your day.

Some wedding venues may have particular garden hotspots – locations where you simply must-have a photograph of you as a newlywed couple. 

Bijou Wedding Venue Country Garden Hot-spots 

Botleys Mansion

Standing on the grand stone staircase with the stunning Surrey parkland views as your backdrop. The stone structure in the Temple Gardens is also a great spot for a romantic snap. 

Cain Manor

Under the wooden pergoda, looking out across the far-stretching views of Surrey’s Golden Valley. Or, inside the metal gazebo within the parterre garden area. 

Notley Abbey

There are so many nooks and crannies to take advantage of at this historic Buckinghamshire wedding venue, not forgetting a multitude of walled gardens, a quirky gates and a turret; ideal for the ultimate fairy tale photography. 

Silchester House

The gardens are green and vast at Silchester House but we particularly love it when couples pose for a photo on the romantic love seat (like Amy and Richard) or simply have the dreamy country house as their backdrop. 

How to Decorate a Garden for a Wedding

Some country house gardens are stunning as they are, but if you’re keen to add your own personal touches, you might gain inspiration from the 5 ideas below: 

Fairy Lights

They may not need to be switched on until the evening, but fairy lights can have a beautiful effect on the way a country garden looks. Speak to your chosen venue about the option of hiring fairy lights to be displayed. 

Lanterns

Lanterns hanging from posts or stood on stone stair cases make for a lovely addition to garden wedding décor. 

Floral Arch

Bijou Partner Sonning Flowers have a fabulous floral arch available for you to hire for your outdoor wedding or drinks reception. We find this the perfect accessory for romantic couple’s photography or simply as a back drop for guests to snap for social media. 

Garden Games

Ideal for guests young and old, garden games could be a great addition to your wedding drinks reception. 

Welcome Signage

Whether you’re having an outdoor ceremony or not, welcome signage is always fun to have dotted around a country garden or driveway.
