No time to plan the day of your dreams? By far the easiest option for busy modern brides is the all-inclusive package where all the big things like ceremony room, Champagne reception, evening buffet, and entertainment are all taken care of.

And just because everything is included in one handy price, it doesn’t mean that you can’t personalise your big day, as Emily Button from Country House Weddings explains…


“At Country House Weddings we hold over 900 weddings every year – all on separate days and with exclusive use offered to every single couple.

“We pride ourselves on offering a personal and unique service bespoke to every bride and groom and we know that one of the things couples are most keen to see is a transparency in package price with an agreed cost upfront that suits both their dreams and their budgets perfectly.

“Here are a few other reasons that couples love our all-inclusive wedding packages…”


1. It’ll take the pressure off

“The logistics of wedding planning can be very stressful even for the most relaxed couple so finding a venue that offers so many of the required services in-house, from your wedding ceremony to your evening entertainment, will really ease the pressure and free up your time for the all-important dress and honeymoon shopping!”

2. You’ll have your own wedding planner

“In-house wedding planners are another big hit at our venues and every package we put together comes complete with a personal Front of House Manager to listen to ideas and ensure the day goes perfectly to plan.”

3. Your overnight stay is included

“Most of our brides and grooms choose to take our bedrooms and bridal suit for the night before and night of their wedding. It is such a lovely touch to have everybody in the same place for the duration of the wedding, spending quality time together.”

4. You’ll get the best catering options

“The issue of finding suppliers can be a big challenge in wedding planning with caterers and alcohol being the most difficult ones to choose and source. All of our wedding packages include all the food and drink you need- from Champagne and canapes to midnight munchies and everything in between. With over 25 years of catering for weddings, we know we do a great job every time!” For food and drink inspiration, why not visit our Wedding Catering section?


5. The whole day will be in one place

“All of our venues offer the complete package in one place, the ceremony, the reception, the evening party and bedrooms- there is no need for wedding cars and no time wasted moving between venues so the whole party can just relax and enjoy the day!”


6. You’ll get expert advice

“Our years of experience mean that we are always on top of the latest trends and can include these in our all-inclusive wedding packages to make planning even easier – from wedding stationery to favours and gifts for your wedding party – we really do think of everything!”


7. There are no hidden costs

“Finally and perhaps most importantly our wedding packages are very clear and we agree all costs at the initial booking stage so you know exactly what they will be – there are no hidden extras – just fantastic wedding days tailored to you to create memories that last a lifetime.”

  1. We found the country house of our dreams but was way too expensive. We wanted to stay the night before with our friends and family but they could only confirm this a month before the wedding. Also they were not including the bridal suite the night of the wedding and this was going to cost us an additional £300. With the other rooms starting at £190 a night we felt that our guests would not stay, thus defeating the object. As much as it broke my heart, we have decided on another venue where we can all stay the night before, have dinner together and tumble up to our rooms after the reception.

  2. we’re having our ceremony in a church, but then onto a big country house ( Eynsham Hall) Where everything is done for us really. We haven’t had to worry about choosing a caterer, places for people to stay etc. everything is laid out in the package so theres no extra hidden costs, it’s perfect!! x

  3. A lot of the weddings we are playing for this year are being held at lovely country houses! Rushton Hall Weddings and Events Fawsley Hall Kelmarsh Hall Weddings Ariella String Quartet, Trio & Duo Seems to go in cycles – last year we did more church weddings than civil – this year more civil!
