5 advantages of a country wedding


by Quendon Hall

Considering whether to go for an urban, city centre wedding or a beautiful country wedding, can be a difficult choice. Below we take a look at 5 reasons that make a country wedding the wedding of choice for the most discerning of couples.

Country weddings are beautiful

Without a doubt, the one major benefit of a country wedding is the beauty of nature that will surround you on the big day. The stunning scenery will provide a beautiful backdrop for the wedding photos, as well add rustic charm and traditional beauty. Having a wedding in the country will make the exterior surroundings every bit as part of the day as the interior. Guests can enjoy the immediate environment, especially in the summer time where you may decide to serve drinks out of doors, in the vast amount of space. At Parklands, we have 100 acre Deer Park to look onto!

Plenty of parking

 This may seem like a small thing but it’s a major advantage of a country wedding venue such as here at Parklands. Whilst you may think that many would people would find a city centre wedding easier to get to thanks to good public transport links, the fact is most people drive to weddings these days and they may be put off going if there is going to be difficulty parking or if it is going to be expensive. Here at Parklands we have ample parking facilities making thing stress-free for all of your guests.

The photographs will be great

Thanks to wedding venues such as Parklands being in more rural settings, it means that there is a great choice available for couples when it comes to the photographs. The variety of countryside shots available the grounds means that you will have wedding photographs to remember and cherish for a long time to come all of which will be stunning.


A classic wedding with contemporary service 

Don’t be fooled into thinking that the service at country weddings is a bit old fashioned compared to more modern city ventures, the reality couldn’t be further from the truth. Country weddings are far more popular than city weddings and at venues such as ours, our wedding planners and staff are dealing with weddings every week of the year and have their fingers on the pulse of everything wedding related from dresses and outfits to design styles and modern customer service. With a country wedding, you get the classic look and feel of a country wedding but with the service you would expect at the most modern of venues.


Accommodation on site

There really is nothing worse for bride, groom or other members of the wedding party than getting home or to a hotel after the wedding reception. It may not be too bad if you have the wedding cars still but if you are relying on taxis then it can put a bit of a damper on the night. Imagine instead being able to stay at the venue, simply slipping away upstairs at the end of the night, easy and stress-free. That’s much better isn’t it? It’s something you can do at almost all country wedding venues and is one of their biggest advantages. Parklands has 21 Guest Rooms on Site, so there is no worries about trying to get home after your wonderful day!
