Little & Large: The Perfect Venues

When planning a wedding, particularly choosing the venue, size does matter. Little or large, we can help you search for the perfect venue, no matter what size of wedding you’re planning.

From small family-only occasions to large party-like celebrations, we have a wedding venue to suit. Here are some of our favourite venues:

Nurstead Court, Kent

Nurstead Court is a beautiful Grade I listed manor house which is located in tranquil Kent countryside. An impressive property with a striking Victorian Façade and pretty gardens, weddings here are always secluded and intimate occasions.

To say ‘I do’, the Drawing Room, which is licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 75 guests, is an elegant room. With its beautiful Regency bay window that floods the room with light, period artwork and open fire, the room is warm and welcoming.

After the ceremony, reception drinks are served in the oak panelled Library – a room full of character and sophistication.

Depending on the number of guests, there are two beautiful rooms for the wedding breakfast; the Drawing Room that can seat 50 guests and the Dining Room which can seat 30 guests. Each room offers period features and a vintage décor that is sure to inspire guests, reinforcing the house’s grandeur and iconic status.

Bartholomew Barn, West Sussex

This beautiful brick barn resembles a traditional barn from a bygone era yet boasts contemporary floor to ceiling windows and doors, making it a stunning setting for a small wedding.

Surrounded by green fields and woodland, Bartholomew Barn is situated in a wonderfully rural and peaceful location in West Sussex, allowing you plenty of un-interrupted time with family and close friends.

Rustic and romantic, Bartholomew Barn is English charm at its best. The barn is cosy and comfortable with exposed brick walls, oak beams and a large wood burner, and is just right for a relaxed and laid back wedding. With a licence for civil ceremonies, Bartholomew Barn can seat 100 for both the ceremony and wedding breakfast, with the courtyard providing the perfect outdoor space for the drinks reception.

There is even a quaint, pretty potting shed for the bride and groom to use during the day, perhaps to steal some precious moments together or simply freshen up for the after party.

While the current trend seems to favour small weddings, for some couples only a big, lavish affair will do. Here is one of our preferred venues for those that want to put the ‘big’ into ‘big day’.
