These days, it's impossible to ignore the effect that social media has had on wedding planning, whether you're making a moodboard on Pinterest or getting inspiration from blogs. If you're the kind of bride who can't resist snapping a picture of your wedding breakfast, then you're going to want a venue that'll have your guests hash tagging like crazy. Here are our top picks for wedding venue interiors that'll look great on Instagram...
Mill Barn at Gaynes Park, Essex
Gaynes Park is bursting with picturesque ceremony and reception locations, from the glass Orangery to the open-sided Gather Barn. Our favourite is the huge brick-walled Mill Barn, with its floor to ceiling windows and huge tree trunk pillars. Once your guests have got over the size of the space, they'll be reaching for their phones to snap a shot of the fairylights and fresh flower decorations.

The Great Hall at Adlington Hall and Gardens, Cheshire
If you're a history buff who loves a little bit of grandeur, then The Great Hall at Adlington will take your breath away. This huge wood-panelled hall, complete with carved angels, mullioned windows and medieval paintings, has been at the heart of the Adlington estate for over 500 years, and is where decades of the manor's lords would have sat. Perfect if you want to feel like king and queen for the day!

Victorian Orangery at St Audries Park, Somerset
St Audries Park is undoubtedly one of Somerset's most beautiful wedding venues; set in 100 acres of stunning parkland, this stately home has more than its fair share of gorgeous interiors. For an elegant summer wedding, however, we particularly love the airy, bright space of the Victorian Orangery. As well as fantastic views of the grounds, the Orangery features an arched glass ceiling to let in sunlight, and picturesque all-white pillar wound with ivy – perfect for a romantic photo or two!
The Rickety Barn at Bassmead Manor Barns, Cambridgeshire
Bassmead Manor Barns strikes an excellent balance between rustic and modern, but our pick for most Instagrammable interior is the lovingly restored 300-year-old Rickety Barn. This traditional barn with solid oak beams and wrought iron chandeliers is warm and cosy in any season, providing the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos.
