When you’re planning your wedding, there are so many things to think about, what to wear, who to invite, what to do during the day and – of course – where to have your wedding. To help you make your decision, here are our top reasons to get married in Wiltshire.
Incredible places to visit
There are so many amazing places to see in Wiltshire that it can be a great opportunity for your guests to make attending your wedding part of a longer holiday or even the chance for you to have your honeymoon there or perhaps a ‘mini-moon’ as a quick way to recharge your batteries after the big day. Highlights include Stonehenge, Old Wardour Castle and Stourhead. There are also many places with historical significance, if you would prefer to visit Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s work with the Great Western Railway or The Museum of Computing from the more recent past.
Wiltshire contains the prettiest village in England, which really sets the tone
Castle Combe has often been named the ‘prettiest village in England’ and was the set for many films, including Stardust and The Wolf Man. You and your guests can take some time to explore this beautiful place while you’re together for the wedding, and it’s great to know that the rest of the county doesn’t disappoint in the way of beautiful scenery. But don’t just take our word for it, come visit Wiltshire to see it for yourself.
Beautiful grounds and landscapes
Wiltshire is a very pretty county, with lots of beautiful outdoor places to explore. There are many lovely walks in the area and it is a very scenic place, making it perfect for those looking to take or feature in photographs. Weather-permitting, you will be able to take lots of photographs to treasure for years of your big day, and even if the weather isn’t perfect, it will still be beautiful outside for a great backdrop or some outside shots for those brave few.
