Hi I just wondered if anyone has been married in Leicestershire and can recommend a venue. I am looking to get married in 2014. I live in South Leicestershire. Ideally we need a venue with accomodation or accomodation nearby.We have roughly 80 guests for the day including children and 140 in total for the evening.
So far we have looked at Ullesthorpe Court, Shearsby Bath and Bosworth Hall. So any experiences of those venues would be great. Thank You.
I have been to weddings in Quorn and Rothley (Rothley Court Hotel). Not in the south of the county but between Leicester and Loughborough. Been for Christmas meal at Ullesthorpe and I didn't think it was very good.
Ruled them out for being a bit stuffy and traditional for the kind of wedding we have in mind but I hear they're quite good if you're after a decent quality hotel wedding. There are two in Quorn, Quorn Country Hotel and Quorn Grange You can get married outside at Quorn grage which is a nice touch but their menus look dull as dishwater (as do most hotel wedding menus IMO)
Ooh now you're almost right on my doorstep with Beaumanor lljkk. Its quite nice if you like the country manor house oak panelled rooms sweeping staircase thing and the grounds are lovely. No on-site accommodation though, you'd have to use Quorn or Loughborough hotels.
What about Kilworth House or we went to a wedding fair and I also have a friend who works at Hothorpe Hall in Theddingworth, the food there is amazing. The grounds are great and they have a woodlands walk. They also have a gorgeous onsite chapel if you wated to get married in there rather than one of the suites.
Ive looked at Kilworth its just too expensive. We have a realistic budget but we don't want to go too mad. I have two children from a previous relationship. I want a beautiful wedding and a day to remember but i don't want to go over the top when i have children as i don't want them to have to feel the pinch money wise just so i can have a nice wedding. Its so hard.
Wow ViviPru. I dont really want to get up to that amount.
Ive looked at abroad Malta its about 900 for the ceremony room etc. Then obviously you book a holiday/honeymoon. But DP says its too expensive for his family and that im being selfish as whats the point of getting married if no ones there hmmm i think he has completely different views on marriage to me.
There is a party barn near Countesthorpe on the A426 (think it might be called Whetstone) but I have no idea what it's like.
If you're near Lutterworth you should look at Brownsover Hall Hotel or Rugby School. Stunning venues, both of them. (Think you can only have your reception at the school though, it's not licensed for civil weddings.) Normanton Church is amazing. I dream of that venue!
<waves to Vivi from last week's BYOB thread. Didn't know there were so many of us hipster bride types round these parts >
