5 Things to consider when choosing your wedding venue

Here in the South West, we are extremely lucky to have a huge number of stunning locations for weddings – from romantic castles and rustic farms to luxury hotels and stately homes. But how do you know which one’s the right one for your nuptials? 

We found one that ticks all the right boxes for a romantic wedding venue, Aldwick Court Farm & Vineyard, located just south of Bristol, where we held the autumn West Weddings photoshoot. We recommend you visit their wedding fair on Sunday 11 October (11am-4pm) to check out for yourself if it meets your wedding dreams.
