How to Choose a Wedding Venue

Whether you’re looking to plan ahead for a 2021 or 2022 wedding, or need to organise your special day fast after your wedding was cancelled due to Covid-19, choosing the perfect wedding venue will be at the top of your to-do list. Traditionally, couples would have their ceremony in one venue and their wedding reception in another. But as we’ve proved, hosting your entire day in one stunning setting is certainly the way forward.
Still not convinced? Here we take a closer look at the reasons why you should host your wedding ceremony and reception at the same venue.

There’s more choice

By opting for a civil ceremony here at Mere Court Hotel, you get the choice of three fantastic and utterly stunning indoor and outdoor settings. Our arboreum, conservatory and garden are used to host wedding ceremonies, which means you can choose a beautiful place that lives up to your big day vision and complements your unique wedding theme.

The day just flows better

By having your ceremony and reception in one venue, there’s no need to have a huge void in your wedding day schedule to ensure everyone has plenty of time to get from your wedding ceremony venue and reception venue. As a result, a one-venue wedding tends to flow better.
It’s also easier and more relaxing for both you and your guests. There’s no rush to get from A to B by a certain time, no waiting around, and no need to frantically organise transport for guests.

It’s more budget friendly too
As well as saving money on venue hire, you won’t have to foot the bill for additional transportation either. Many wedding venues, including ours, also provide night before and wedding night accommodation for both the happy couple and their guests, meaning you don’t have to dedicate any of your wedding budget to transportation.
Thanks to the simpler logistics, out-of-town guests who are unfamiliar with the area will have a much more relaxing experience too.

Planning is made easy

Planning your perfect day isn’t a walk in the park, but it’s made simpler by opting for a one-venue wedding. As well as not having to make provisions for wedding transport, you don’t have to waste time or money searching for, viewing and decorating two venues, which will work wonders for those wedding planning stress levels.

We’re the only venue you need
