Country weddings on-trend for same sex marriages
Same sex couples tying the knot this year (2017) are going for rural venues like ours.
This year we're seeing more bookings for same sex marriages than in previous years.
We've become a bit of a magnet for same sex couples who wish to host their engagements and nuptials with us. In the past year, we've seen a 20% increase in bookings and customer feedback is very much that people want to have a rural wedding in a country setting.
We have provided the venue for more than 100 weddings in the past seven years and have a private marquee seating 78 people, or 140 for a buffet, within its own private walled garden.
We get lots of out-of-town bookings and one of the benefits of our set up is that we have 16 rooms, so most of the main wedding party can stay in the hotel and it's like having a big house party with everyone together. It's fabulous fun!
We provide the perfect setting for a country-style wedding with lovely backdrops for photos. The inn is 18th century and is set in a pretty cottage garden with a huge weeping willow and sweet peas and roses in the summer.
We create menus that let the quality of our local produce shine through, we only use free range meat and Westcountry hens lay our eggs and our own bees work hard to make us honey.
We offer a beautiful venue away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It's perfect for a simple, yet sophisticated party in a beautiful, quintessentially English setting.
Each celebration is tailored to the wishes of the couple, not an anonymous package. We allow flexibility, so couples can make it their own thing!
We can cater for a wedding breakfast or reception, whether a bijou affair or something a bit grander.
