This time last week I had the pleasure of attending a family wedding at the wonderful Brinsop Court Estate.
Brinsop Court is a Grade 1 listed 14th Century moated manor house just outside Hereford City. As well as a spectacular house it is surrounded by its’ own 800 acre estate. Available for exclusive use this venue is spectacular.
Sleeping up to 33 people, this venue offers a simply magical place to have your wedding yet offering a homely feel, there is no wonder the venue has recently been named Guides for Brides Best Stately Home/Mansion.
Your wedding ceremony can be an outdoor or indoor affair, as can your celebrations. There are plenty of options to consider with expansive woodland, the courtyard, or in the 3 licenced rooms within the house. We had the pleasure of experiencing the Wedding Ceremony in the Panelled Library, complete with a full library of books, ornate stucco ceiling, wall to wall oak panelling. This was a really intimate room and had spectacular views of the surrounding estate and woodland.
The wedding breakfast was without a doubt the best hog roast I have ever experienced in the magnificent 12th Century Banqueting Hall. The hog roast was complete with apple sauce, roast potatoes, crackling, mediterranean vegetables, salad and coleslaw. I am a massive foodie and must say this menu has definitely made my top 5 wedding breakfasts of all time!
This is the oldest part of the house with exposed vaulted ceiling, a solid oak floor from trees felled on the estate and a secret door. It was quite dark outside when we sat down to eat which only made this room even more spectacular, the room was lit by candlelight and almost felt like dining in the Hogwarts Great Hall!
Dessert was a choice of gigantic homemade cheesecakes. They were so good that I noticed a few people nipping up for cheeky seconds. Once all fed we were delighted with the speeches and toasts, then made our way downstairs to the Games Room ready to dance the night away.
One thing I loved about this venue is there were some really lovely areas to relax as well as enjoy the celebrations. While everyone was dancing away, you could retire to the Oak Parlour and sit by the roaring fire, or grab some fresh air out in the courtyard. As they say on their website Brinsop Court is more than just a country house wedding venue, its a home for all the family to enjoy.
I genuinely cant recommend this venue enough, it really would be perfect for a wedding any time of the year. Even if your not planning a wedding the house is available to hire for Holidays and Corporate Events. I wouldn’t hesitate to go back.
