4. Mythe Barn, Leicestershire

Mythe Barn in Leicestershire has a reputation for being one of the best modern wedding venues around.

6. Millbridge Court, Surrey

Set in the Surrey countryside but still only a stone’s throw from London, Millbridge Court is a seriously strong contender for modern wedding venues. Enormous glazed walls and windows ensure the purpose-built barns are bright and airy whatever the weather.

Even better, this beautiful venue combines a traditional courtyard setting with a stylish glass atrium. That means if you get married here, you’ll soak up glorious country views during your drinks reception come rain or shine.

7. That Amazing Place, Essex

The clue is in the name for this Essex wedding venue, but how did this 15th-century, former monastery make it onto our list of top contemporary wedding venues? The neutrally decorated Lakeview Lounge creates a chic blank canvas for couples to personalise for more intimate ceremonies. A wall of mirrors makes The Hall a stand-out space. And then there’s the award-winning bedrooms to snuggle up in after the party end. Inside this venue’s historic façade is the ideal location for a contemporary weekend wedding.

8. The Barn At Upcote, Gloucestershire

Defined by a pared-back palette of the Cotswolds’ iconic (and romantic) honey-coloured stone, The Threshing Barn at The Barn at Upcote has all the character without any of the compromise. Invite up to 100 of your favourite people to join you for the celebrations, then make yourself at home in this light-filled space. Fancy something a little smaller in scale? Opt for minimalistic yet charming The Grain Store and style the surrounding pathways with candles, lanterns and lots of flowers.
