The Shoppenhangers Manor looked good but it appears it is part of the Holiday Inn complex now... ;-(
The other suggestion looks absolutely beautiful though I am possibly looking for a more low key venue ...ie may be a village hall with a bit of character to it I can do up. Problem is there are so many choices.
some friends of ours had their reception in a barn, complete with barn dance as the entertainment. It was one of the best wedding receptions I have ever been to. The food was done by the extended family, as were the decorations.
