5 reasons to book your wedding venue
Without a doubt, one of the most important tasks when it comes to wedding planning is picking out your wedding venue. Your wedding venue will set the tone of your big day, and it’s key to make sure you pick one that suits your requirements as a couple. But what makes a good wedding venue? Brandon Hall Hotel & Spa in Warwickshire shares the main reasons why brides book them, to help you inspire you on your wedding venue hunt…
1. A stunning location
The first thing you should take into account when searching for a wedding venue is location, location, location. How far away do you want to travel for your big day? Once you have the practicalities of your wedding location sorted, then the next thing is to find a venue that makes the most of that area. Beautiful grounds, picturesque surroundings and lots of photo opportunities are big draws to wedding venues.
Brandon Hall Hotel is conveniently located in a small village in the heart of Warwickshire, and offers the perfect setting for a wedding. The hotel boasts 17 acres of gorgeous grounds and gardens to enjoy, and the surrounding woodland makes for amazing photo locations for couples’ portraits.
2. The right ceremony and celebration spaces
Wedding parties come in different shapes and sizes, and it’s important to get the right space for your big day. Have an idea of numbers before you go looking at your wedding venue and you’ll be able to decide whether the spaces available work for your celebration.
Whether you’re planning a larger party or a smaller, more intimate affair, Brandon Hall Hotel has three suites to suit all wedding sizes. The Beech Suite is ideal for smaller weddings and features lovely views across the hotel’s beautiful gardens and grounds. The Brandon Suite, with its delightful period features and direct access out to the gardens, is another option. For larger parties, the Woodland Suite has its own bar and lobby, which gives you a one-of-a-kind exclusive space for you and your guests.
3. Bespoke wedding packages
Not every wedding venue offers wedding packages, which is fine if you’re happy to plan every element of your wedding day from the ground up. However, if you’d like your catering and drinks all taken care of by your wedding venue, or you want to save money on combining key suppliers, wedding packages are extremely useful. Even more important is whether your wedding venue offers a bespoke wedding package – one that’s easily tweaked to suit your exact needs.
Brandon Hall Hotel has three wedding packages to choose from, each of which can be tailored to meet your needs. The packages include everything from food and drink to decor and entertainment, down to the smallest detail, such as free menu tastings and keepsake cake knives. What’s more, all of their wedding packages include the services of a wedding coordinator, who will be on hand to make sure that everything runs smoothly. Speaking of which…
4. A dedicated wedding coordinator
Regardless of whether you choose an all-in-one package or you want to DIY every element of your big day, having a wedding coordinator can really help lighten the load when it comes to wedstress. A dedicated wedding coordinator at your wedding venue is an excellent resource, as they’ll help everything run to plan and know how to handle all the suppliers. If it’s important to you that no-one is bothering you with the niggling details on your big day, then book a venue with a coordinator as part of their service.
Accommodation is one of the biggest added extras when it comes to choosing a venue. Having rooms on-site can be very important, particularly if you have guest travelling from afar or there’s not a lot of accommodation nearby. On-site rooms also means that you and your bridal party can potentially stay the night before the wedding and get ready at the venue to avoid early morning starts.
Brandon Hall Hotel and Spa has 120 comfortable and stylish bedrooms, all with their own ensuite facilities. Hotel guests also have free use of Brandon Health Club and the venue’s award-winning spa, so your guests can relax before (or after!) your big day.
