Top 3 Reasons to Get Married in the Cotswolds

We love our Cotswolds home, but what makes it the ideal location for your perfect wedding?

We all know that the Cotswolds is a popular destination for holidays and weddings alike, but we have tried to pin down the top 3 reasons why you should choose this beautiful corner of England for your big day…

Just Look at the View!

We think this one probably goes without saying, but one big reason to get married in the Cotswolds is the exceptional scenery. Surrounded by rolling English countryside and the archetypal Cotswolds stone cottages, you can’t help but feel like you have stepped into a fairy tale.

Throw in the perfect dress, a delicious Michelin Starred wedding breakfast and a whole host of seasonal blooms and you have all the ingredients for the perfect wedding. Lords of the Manor provides the ultimate wedding venue in the Cotswolds. With our stunning warm stone manor house and carefully tended gardens, we provide the quintessential Cotswolds venue for your ideal wedding.

A Whole Host of Local Suppliers

We are lucky enough at our Cotswolds wedding venue to have a whole host of incredible producers and suppliers right on our doorstep. From cakes to invitations, there truly is a wealth of talent here in this pretty little corner of the South West. Take a look at our top picks:

The Cotswold Cake Kitchen

Based in Cheltenham, these crafty bakers make some stunning wedding cakes. Tanya Goodacre, the lady at the helm of this sweet ship, grew up just down the road from our Cotswolds wedding venue, in Stow on the Wold, so she really knows the Cotswolds inside out. Every bespoke cake is individually designed and each delicate decoration is crafted by hand. From chocolate masterpieces, to macaron festooned beauties, The Cotswold Cake Kitchen has made them all!

Not only will you be wowed by the outside of these amazing cakes, the fillings are incredible too. With a huge selection to choose from, you can have anything from the classic Victoria sponge, through to lemon, chocolate, carrot cake, coconut, coffee and even salted caramel.

Wildflower Illustration Co.

Wildflower Illustration Co., also based in Cheltenham, are a small outfit producing beautiful hand designed stationery. From your invites, through to your place settings and even menus, Rebecca, the talented hand behind the designs, produces completely gorgeous paper goods.

Want something beautiful to remind you of your special day? Rebecca doesn’t just do stationery, she also paints beautiful bespoke watercolour portraits of either your church or wedding venue, so that you can always keep a piece of your wedding with you.
