4. Preston Court
Arguably one of the top destination wedding locations in the UK, Preston Court offers three unique locations for soon-to-be newlyweds to say their vows. Couples set on marrying in a church have access to the Saxon Church of St Mildred’s for their traditional ceremony. Those open to more avant-garde venues can opt for either the Kent Barn, Long Barn, or Juliana’s Island.
The large location offers unique and natural photo opportunities for your big day. This includes a functioning carousel and lighted yard that come to life at night. Both you and your guests will have an unforgettable taste of vintage luxury by the end of the night.
5. The Cove
Few wedding venues match the luxury of a beachside marriage. They’re classic, timeless, and gorgeous enough to make anyone love weddings. This makes the Cove one of the most popular destination wedding locations in Australia.
Adding a beachside view to any ceremony, the Cove resides inside Booderee National Park at Jervis Bay. At this location, brides and grooms alike will have access to indoor and outdoor reception areas, along with dozen ceremony backdrops. Newlyweds and their guests also have admission to a recovery breakfast for the day of or after.
You can also choose to stay at the Cove’s resort during your honeymoon or the days leading up to the wedding. Either way, all guests can access the location’s hidden luxuries, including their spa.
6. Highclere Castle
You’re royalty every day of the year, especially on your Wedding day. If you want to live your princess (or prince) dreams, Highclere Castle is the wedding venue. This castle is the iconic Crawley house in the period drama “Downtown Abbey,” but for one night, it can be entirely your’s.
At Highclere, you will have access to the building’s bedroom for wedding preparation and your ceremony or reception grounds. If you’d rather spend your wedding day inside the lavish interior, you can choose to do so as well. The castle has rooms set aside for your big day.
You also have access to the location’s grand staircases and architecture for private wedding photoshoots or entertainment. This venue’s mixture of grace, tradition, and regal living will make your life the best fairytale yet.
