One of the most wonderful things about hosting a marquee wedding is the versatility of location. Sure, there are hundreds of stunning fixed venues up and down the country, from stately homes to exquisite churches. But, there’s nothing quite like pitching up your marquee in a position and location that shows our British landscapes off to their finest. To help you with your planning, we’ve pulled together 5 beautiful marquee locations right here in the South East of England to consider.
Brinsop Court Manor House and Barn
This 14th-century manor house has an idyllic moat circling the entire building along with an oak barn and cottages that complete the luxurious scene. It is a well sought-after wedding location with several awards under its belt and 800 acres of farmland surrounding it. With the exclusive use of the house and the grounds around, it is the perfect palace to pitch up a marquee for your dream wedding or celebration event.
North Mymms Park
North Mumms is a hidden beauty nestled in the heart of Hertfordshire. Featuring a 16th-century mansion house with original period features and fine art throughout, it is the ideal place to have wedding photographs shot. Outside, the glass Pavilion provides an ideal spot for summer-based gatherings while the South Lawn remains the perfect spot to pitch up your marquee. From uttering your vows to rewarding your employees, it offers so much for any marquee event planner.
As the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, King Henry VIII’s second wife, Hever castle is a spectacular snippet into British history. It is home to a collection of expansive gardens laid out between 1904 and 1908, which provides a spectacular spot for marquee weddings and events. The Winter Garden Lawn is ideally located next to the moat with outstanding views of the castle and can hold up to 600 guests.
Hampton Court Palace
Sticking to the Tudor era, Hampton Court Palace also provides a truly beautiful wedding venue within their 750 acres of rolling parkland.
