Reasons to Get Married in Wiltshire
Congratulations – you’re getting married! The first few days after engagement are always bliss – until you start thinking about the organisation that goes into planning a wedding. We believe that planning your wedding should be as stress-free as possible; after all, it’s a celebration of love. In order to make the process of choosing a venue less stressful, at Pink Wedding Venues we have a directory of all the best gay-friendly wedding venues. All you need to do is pick a county! If you’re struggling to pick one, why not choose Wiltshire?
Located in the South West of England, Wiltshire is a hidden gem. It’s not the most obvious place to consider when you think about the West Country, primarily as it often goes under the radar when people picture Devon and Cornwall. However, Wiltshire is a gorgeous county, with lots of beautiful scenery – all of which make the perfect backdrop for wedding photos! Due to the amount of green spaces in this stunning county, there are a number of manor houses and country homes that you can tie the knot in, to really feel like Queens or Kings for the day. If you want to go really fancy, there are also a couple of castles that you can say your vows in. Just imagine how amazing it would be to sip cocktails with your loved ones in a spacious castle, steeped in history.
Are you or your partner animal lovers? You’ll be pleased to know that Wiltshire is home to Longleat, the U.K.’s number one safari park. Not only does this make for a great activity, but you can actually tie the knot there! As well as the safari park, it also has a stately home and a landscaped parkland, making it the perfect place to become Mr and Mr, or Mrs and Mrs. As well as country houses, castles and Longleat, there are also spas, lodges and hotels, so there really is something for everyone.
Still not sure if Wiltshire is for you? Check out our list of fun facts about Wiltshire:
1. Longleat is home to one of several Centre Parcs, which are ideal for staycation honeymoons.
