  •  Looking for somewhere a little unusual to get married? If you are planning a rustic wedding, take a look at our list of five of the best venues in England. Each location offers character, charm and a memorable experience, far beyond what you could expect from a hotel or restaurant.


    1. The Tudor Barn, London

    Finding a rustic wedding venue in London is a hard task. The city is awash with luxurious five star hotels, but something a little more characterful is more difficult to come by. Tudor Barn, tucked away in Greenwich, is a Grade II listed building, with original flooring, exposed beams and stained glass windows. Built in the 16th century, the barn has links with Sir Thomas More and King Henry VIII. This beautiful wedding venue overlooks local parkland, offering a romantic setting both inside and out.  


    2. Caswell House, Oxfordshire

    This simple, understated stone barn is a blank canvas for your rustic wedding. Transform the interior with fairy lights and candles. Our large natural tree lantern with heart cut-out will make the perfect table decoration, adding a touch of nature to the room, to soften the hard look created by the building's stone construction. Outside guests can meander through the walled gardens and ancient orchard, or simply sit down and enjoy views across the moat and surrounding countryside. Caswell House can provide outdoor wedding ceremonies in the landscaped gardens, with couples exchanging vows beneath a beautiful stone arch.


    3. Folly Farm, Bristol

    This unusual wedding venue boasts eco-friendly credentials. You can exchange vows under the shade of the apple orchard, in the courtyard, or in one of the converted 18th century barns. Situated on a 250 acre nature reserve, Folly Farm is peaceful, beautiful, and inspirational. All the profits from your wedding day are ploughed back into the charity that runs the nature reserve, to support their work in wildlife conservation.


    4. Alpheton Barns, Suffolk

When you hire the venue you will have exclusive use of all the barns and surrounding grounds, so your guests can spread out. If you'd like a church wedding, the parish church of St Peter & St Paul Alpheton is just next door.


    5. Clock Barn, Hampshire

    Head up the long driveway in the heart of the Hampshire countryside, and the first thing you will notice about this historic barn, is the distinctive thatched clock. The interior is charmingly rustic, and outside there is plenty of space to enjoy, and views to take in. Best of all, the venue is just 15 minutes from Newbury and Winchester, giving you a sense of seclusion, without the hassle of a long and complicated journey.


    And finally...

    When choosing your wedding location, don't be seduced by external shots of historic buildings. The interior needs to be just as charming, but with all the mod cons you'd expect from a well appointed venue. Converting a historic building for use as a party venue takes skill and care, The best venues have been renovated and restored sympathetically, with all the charm and history remaining in tact.

      Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day I heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
