Reasons to get married in Hertfordshire

You’ve popped the question, decided on a date, thought about who to invite (and possibly disagreed!) – now you need to pick a venue. It’s a crucial part of the day, as your guests first impression will be formed around it, and it’s the setting for the most important day of your life. If you want a wedding in a picturesque, rural setting – why not get married in Hertfordshire?

Firstly, Hertfordshire is home to rolling hills, green fields, and gorgeous trees, meaning you can have the countryside wedding of your dreams. Picture this: an outdoor wedding, sipping champagne with your partner in a stunning marquee, before tucking into an exquisite meal and then dancing the night away. Sound good?

If you don’t want a wedding that’s as ‘countryside’, Hertfordshire is full of stately homes, manor houses and hotels, so you can tie the knot in some of the fanciest settings in the country. How do you fancy saying your vows in a classy hotel, beautifully lit and full of gorgeous flowers?

Geographically speaking, Hertfordshire borders lots of counties, including Greater London, Essex, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Buckinghamshire. In practical terms, this makes it easily accessible for guests arriving from other parts of the country. It has several motorways, and is in close proximity to several airports including Luton and London Stansted – this makes it great for flying in guests from abroad, and these airports tend to be less busy than Gatwick or Heathrow, making it less stressful for them arriving.  

Hertfordshire is a magical place to host your special day, no matter how big or small your wedding may be. Here are some facts about Hertfordshire to help you make your minds up:

 

1.   Several big name celebrities are from/have lived in Hertfordshire, including Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell, Elaine Paige and gay icon George Michael.

2.   Planning a wedding takes the patience of a saint… Speaking of which, St Alban – the name sake of St Alban’s in Hertfordshire – was the first British saint, way back in the 3rd century!

3.   Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejuidice was reportedly set in Hertfordshire, and includes some of the most romantic quotes of all time. 

       4.    If you’re thinking about food, it’s worth noting the Hot Cross Bun originated in Hertfordshire! Not the most conventional wedding snack, but perfect for an Easter wedding…

 

If you live in Hertfordshire, you must give your notice of marriage to any register office in the county. If you live outside the county and are getting married in Hertfordshire, you need to give your notice of marriage to the register office in the district you live in. Notice can be given up to 12 months before your wedding and no less than 28 days before. You must have lived in the area more than 7 days before giving notice. More information can be found on the Hertfordshire County Council Website
