So, here is my best Herefordshire wedding venues selection for you…enjoy!
In no particular order…
Dewsall Court is a country house and barn wedding venue at Callow, near Herefordshire. Wedding ceremonies are possible inside and outside in a number of beautiful locations, including the church on the grounds. Mingle on the lawns for your wedding reception, or in the lounge. Your wedding breakfast can take place in the recently-restored luxury Wainhouse barn or in the conservatory at the house. Make a whole weekend of it and enjoy the luxury bedrooms. The rustic barns, gardens and the views across the Herefordshire countryside make this a really wonderful wedding venue.
You can see my recently updated review of their different options for your wedding here. This guide takes you through your whole wedding day at Dewsall with the aid of pictures to visualise how your own celebration would look.
Homme House is a country house wedding venue at Much Marcle in Herefordshire. Wedding ceremonies are possible in the main house and also in the gardens by the summer house, or in the church at the edge of the estate. They have put a lot of work into creating beautiful grounds for your wedding photographs and for your guests to mingle in, including a rose garden, dovecot and wildflower meadow. Wedding breakfasts can be held in the dining room or in an adjoining marquee. With such a warm, welcoming and homely atmosphere, you really do feel like this house is your own home for your wedding weekend.

Hellens Manor & Barns
Hellens Manor is an ancient manor house with two barns on the grounds, located practically next door to Homme House at Much Marcle. Wedding ceremonies can be held in the manor house or in the barn. The grounds and backdrops are lovely for photographs, with many different areas to explore. Your wedding breakfast is held in the main barn, with a smaller adjacent barn housing the bar. As the sun sets across the orchards, you can look back on a really memorable wedding day here.

How Caple Court
How Caple Court in Herefordshire is a rustic venue with an elegant concert barn and beautiful gardens set over terraces by the historic house. It is possible to get married outside on the terraces, by a gazebo. You can also get married in the barn or in the church on the grounds. The terraces are wonderful for reception drinks afterwards, and the wedding breakfast and dancing takes places in the concert barn. You’re bound to have a few extra wedding guests in the shape of the resident peacocks who roam about!

Lemore Manor is a country house wedding venue near Eardisley in Herefordshire. They have recently undergone extensive refurbishments to make Lemore a luxury wedding experience – there is now a fabulous Coach House to get married in, a Hen House for getting ready, and a stunning Orangery for your wedding breakfast. I grew up around this area so it’s always a lovely one for me to return to!
Brobury House in Herefordshire is where I got married! This house has lovely gardens and overlooks the River Wye. You can get married in the conservatory, and mingle with your guests in the stunning grounds, which are perfect for photographs. Your wedding breakfast can be held in a marquee. They only do a very small number of weddings per year so it’s a pretty exclusive venue!

Lyde Arundel is a barn wedding venue just outside Hereford, with lovely gardens and a lake by the pretty house. Wedding ceremonies can be held in the barns or outside, and then you can mingle by the lake for your wedding reception. Your wedding breakfast takes place in either a small barn or a large barn, where there are also two bars. The Herefordshire countryside makes a beautiful backdrop for your photographs.

Whitney Court is an impressive country house wedding venue at Whitney-on-Wye in Herefordshire, with amazing views over the Wye Valley from the gardens. Ceremonies are held in the oak-panelled hall, and wedding breakfasts take place in the pretty dining room with views over the grounds. There’s loads of space for guests to stay overnight too.
Broadfield Court is a rustic country estate at Bodenham, Herefordshire. It has recently come into new ownership, and there are lots of exciting changes happening, with weddings being started again in summer 2018. The grounds make a lovely setting for a wedding, and it’s sure to be stunning with all the new renovations inside.
