Home to some of Britain’s best landscapes, including the Peak District and Sherwood Forest, there are also some seriously stunning East Midlands wedding venues hidden in the region's countryside.
Check out some of the best country wedding venues in the East Midlands with our round-up.
Mythe Barn, Leicestershire
Being a bespoke wedding barn, Mythe Barn has all the charm you could wish for with every modern luxury too. Traditional brickwork and character timber cladding rubs shoulders with floor-to-ceiling glazing, creating a distinctly modern and incredibly luxurious effect.
Within easy reach of Birmingham and Leicester, this wedding venue is also immaculately planned. There’s an idyllic garden gazebo or Oak Barn for your ceremony, the atmospheric Cart Room for your cocktail hour and the Grain Store for the party of the century.
Throw in the Hayloft Honeymoon Suite and Courtyard Cottages and you’ve got the perfect barn wedding venue from day to night.

Holme Pierrepont Hall, Nottinghamshire
Holme Pierrepont Hall is one of the grandest wedding venues in Nottinghamshire. Set in 30 acres, this Tudor manor comes complete with castle-like crenellations and huge stone arches. It's guaranteed to add a royal feel to your wedding day.
There are three historic ceremony rooms to choose from, each boasting antique furniture, to cater for your wedding party, whether intimate or large.
In summer, the rose-filled parterre is perfect for a Champagne reception, while the topiary yews add interest in winter. When it comes to the dancing, there’s only one place to go – the Ballroom!
Dodmoor House, Northamptonshire
With oodles of old English charm, Dodmoor House promises a characterful setting that is as rustic as it is relaxed. Clustered around a courtyard, the venue feels intimate and secluded. There are two beautiful barns to celebrate in throughout the day.
With stone walls, oak beams and a slate floor, the Courtyard Barn is a warm and romantic space for your ceremony. As the day progresses, move on to the Catesby Barn. This too shares rustic features including beams and exposed brickwork, but with a bright, modern edge and chic mezzanine bar.
Hazel Gap Barn, Nottinghamshire
A red brick barn wedding venue but not as you know it, Hazel Gap Barn is rustic, charming and immaculately sculpted. Offering couples a heart-stopping blend of character and luxury, it’s one of the most sought-after East Midlands wedding venues.
Huge archways add drama both inside and out, while a statement fireplace features in the Ceremony Room and an elegant fountain creates a calming soundtrack in the courtyard. The grounds are beautifully manicured and will wow your guests at night, when fairy lights and fire pits cast the courtyard in an enchanting glow.
The Granary at Fawsley, Northamptonshire
Tucked away in the Northamptonshire countryside, The Granary at Fawsley’s collection of spaces makes it an unforgettable place to say ‘I do’. The 17th-century barns are Grade II-listed and steeped in character. You'll adore the huge oak beams, restored brick walls and bucolic views that seem to stretch for miles.
You really do get the best of both worlds here, because the rustic settings marry with a contemporary style barn. Think gauzy drapes, a twinkling ceiling and dramatic dance floor. There are also 10 boutique bedrooms to escape to for a luxurious night’s sleep. And for couples seeking a religious ceremony, there’s even a church on the estate!
