Hotels are one of the top choices for couples in Northamptonshire, and it’s easy to see why. Hotel wedding venues come hand in hand with modern features, often priding themselves on luxurious guest rooms, on-site catering and plenty of expert staff on hand to help make your dream day a reality. Hotels are the perfect choice for any couple, whether you want a city wedding with easy access on public transport or a country hotel wedding with beautiful grounds in Northamptonshire.
Plenty of hotels in Northamptonshire offer easily customisable wedding packages to make wedding planning as easy as possible. Hotels often have a professional wedding planner, who will be your point of contact from the day you book your wedding date until the day itself. Another plus to having your ceremony and reception in a hotel is that your guests can easily roll into bed after dancing the night away only to meet you for a delicious breakfast the next morning.
Having your wedding at a hotel is the perfect idea for you if:
- You have lots of guests travelling from far away who need accommodation.
- You wish to have in-house catering.
- You require a venue with a large capacity to fit all of your guests in.
- You want to easily provide your guests with bedrooms.
- You want a wedding coordinator to help plan your wedding.
Frequently Asked Questions - Hotel wedding day Venues
What type of hotel should I book for my wedding day?
We have hotels of all types and sizes on Guides for Brides. Ranging from large city hotels to small boutique country hotels. Our venue finder lets you select filters to narrow it down to exactly what you want, whether it's boutique, large or a small hotel. It also lets you filter through different capacities, prices and facilities that the hotel has. This should help you find the perfect hotel wedding venue for you in Northamptonshire.
Small hotels usually have between 10 and 50 bedrooms, so if you’d hope that your wedding guests are the only hotel guests on your wedding night, then a small hotel may be the perfect choice for you. This also means that you’re less likely to encounter other guests on your day, if you don’t already have an exclusive use booking.
Boutique hotels often have 100 bedrooms or less, and are often decorated in a modern, stylish way. Boutique hotels tend to be located in the city, so if you’re marrying in the city and want your guests to have super chic accommodation, then a boutique hotel is a great choice.
Larger hotels can have hundreds and hundreds of bedrooms, so if you’re having a big wedding day with plenty of guests, then you may find that a big hotel will suit you. Large hotels often have more wedding day spaces to choose from, such as outdoor marquees, ballrooms or purpose-built wedding day suites, and are a good choice for Asian wedding days in particular.
