Five Of Our Favourite Wedding Venues
8th Feb 2022
It's no surprise that after the recent easing of covid restrictions, weddings are back in full swing. After two years of changing plans and moving dates, wedding parties are rushing to book venues and transport and are making sure that everyone is invited!
With the 7-14th of this month being marriage week, we wanted to share some of our favourite local venues.
From grand country houses to blooming riverside gardens, we have delivered brides to them all! We don't have a top venue as each wedding is unique to the people who plan it, but we do know that all of them look great with one of our vintage vehicles or modern executrive coaches outside, making the day as memorable as possible.
Holmewood Hall - Holme
The building has been here since 1644, with the current version dating back to 1873. Holmewood Hall has a rich history serving as a base for the training and supply of resistance fighters during World War II, and as an agricultural research centre by British Sugar.
It offers luxurious accomodation and spacious grounds to cater for large wedding parties. With 10 acres of beautiful grounds and a personal wedding manager that comes with the booking, we are sure to be here a few times this wedding season.

Bassmead Manor Barn - St Neots
Bassmead provides the perfect setting for a dreamy, romantic country wedding. It has been owned by the Squires since 1845, when Sir Peter Squire, the royal chemist to Queen Victoria bought the farm to grow herbs for his apothecary business in London.
Elegant indoor spaces have been designed with weddings in mind, with the beautiful countryside playing a huge part, with an outside kitchen for evening food and garden games to enjoy. The gardens are beautiful all year round and the years of experience creating beautiful days, shines through at this venue.
