The iconic Blenheim Palace in Woodstock is one of the best-known wedding venues in the UK. This magnificent Baroque palace in set in more than 2,000 acres of Capability Brown landscaping, and can host weddings of up to 2,000 guests. There are six spaces to choose from, and the local church can accommodate 230 guests for a ceremony. However, no matter the size of your wedding party, Blenheim Palace lends a sense of true grandeur to any occasion.
For selected remaining dates in 2019, Blenheim are running an incredible 50% off on room hire. This could net you amazing savings on hire of The Great Hall, which usually costs around £19,044 midweek and £27,600 at the weekend, or the Saloon and Long Library, which usually costs £36,294 for up to 300 guests midweek, or £42,090 for weekend hire.
For just a few couples looking to marry in 2020, there’s an opportunity to host your reception in Blenheim’s glass marquee on the South Lawn. It will only be there for a few months from April and demand will be very high, so this is the perfect time to book your date.Get in touch with Blenheim Palace here.
