A WEDDING VENUE FIT FOR ROYALTY!

With the news of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle due to tie the knot sometime next May, we thought we would offer some suggestions of wedding venues in the county that could be fit for royalty. Not only that but with William Shakespeare and Anne Hathaway’s anniversary this week, it’s the perfect time to think about all things marriage, after all, everyone loves a good wedding!

A truly Royal Worcester wedding
Guildhall – Worcester

What better place to tie the knot, than at Worcester's historic Guildhall? The Guildhall, which dates back to 1721, is a perfect venue for both wedding ceremonies and receptions, and can accommodate up to 200 guests. Whilst the guests enjoy the beauty of the Guildhall, they can take advantage of the Royal Worcester shop now being on site and get a souvenir of the day!

Your Wedding, Your Way
Manor Hill House

Manor Hill House is a stunning contemporary venue set in glorious North Worcestershire countryside. This venue offers great flexibility allowing you to tailor the day to your unique requirements. They don’t offer ‘typical wedding’ packages but allow you to design your own day, with all needs taken care of. If, like the royal couple, you aren’t after a long engagement you can opt for the Whirlwind Wedding package, perfect for the couple wanting to get started on their life together as soon as possible. There really is something for everyone here, and how could you go wrong with those views?

Fit For a Prince and Princess
Stanbrook Abbey

With their bar namesakes here, it’s the perfect excuse for Prince Harry to bring his niece and nephew along to Stanbrook Abbey, not that you need an excuse for a wedding at this stunning venue! Nestled in the Malvern Hills the Abbey has a wonderful historic charm and grace, with each of its 19 function rooms providing a beautiful setting, for any part of your big day.

A Royal History
The Wood Norton Hotel

With a royal back-story this could be a top choice for a young couple. Duc d'Orléans Louis Philippe I was exiled in 1793, his great grandson Prince Philippe d'Orléans purchased Wood Norton Hall as a hunting lodge in 1872 for holidays in the country and country house parties. In 1907 Princess Louise of Orléans, Prince Philippe’s sister, was married at Wood Norton Hall. She is the maternal Grandmother of the recently (2014) abdicated King Juan Carlos I of Spain. Not only that but with glamour and setting of The Wood Norton this could be the perfect day to start a new adventure.

Something Different
Avoncroft Museum

If they fancy something a little bit different then Avoncroft could be the answer. Ceremonies are held in the atmospheric New Guesten Hall beneath its magnificent fourteenth century, Grade II listed roof. The Guesten Hall at Worcester Cathedral is now simply ruins but in the 14th Century would have provided somewhere for pilgrims and other visitors to the Cathedral to stay during their time in Worcester. Head over to the Windmill at Avoncroft for photos, have lawn games on the wide open spaces or even have fun playing in the telephone boxes! This unique venue really does have the wow factor.
