10 Of The Best
Small Wedding Venues

I've been hunting around for the best small wedding venues and here is my list of favourite picks. After all, small is good.

All the little venues mentioned below are suitable for up to 70 guests and have a great feel about them, whether they're simply chic or terribly cool. Boutique wedding venue heaven, here I come. Oh, and these small wedding venues are in no particular order.

Trevenna, Cornwall

A delightful group of super-luxury converted barns. The barns are available to rent for nuptials as well as other celebrations and they're licensed for marriages. Together the barns sleep 33 guests, but can hold more for receptions. Although the barns are self catering, this is a luxury option, so expect first class service. They'll arrange for people to come in, clean, cook, entertain, whatever and then they'll leave leaving you in privacy to party. Visit The Trevenna website.

Lower Slaughter Manor, Cotswolds

Gorgeous manor, completely opulent and one of the most grandiose venues on this list. It's set in a traditional style and perfect for a romantic, intimate weddings. It's licensed and can hold up to 74 guests for a civil ceremony. Visit the Lower Slaughter Manor website.

Bingham, Richmond, London.

Sitting on the River Thames with stunning riverside views on the leafy Surrey fringe of London. Beautifully decorated with art deco touches, perfect for a vintage style wedding. The minimum number of guests they accept is 50. Visit The Bingham website.

Hotel du Vin, York

Although part of a chain, York's Hotel du Vin offers a boutique hotel experience in a quintessentially British style. There's a hint of Imperialism mixed with modern design with beautiful wall murals throughout. In York they have a beautiful terrace which brings the outdoors in, perfect in the summer months for up to 60 guests standing. Visit the York Hotel Du Vin website.

Babington House, Frome, Somerset

Brought to you by Soho House, this private members club can be hired exclusively for weddings. It's chic, beautiful and available during the week. Unfortunately, it's not for hire at the weekend (we don't want to upset the members). Visit the Babington House website.

The Swiss Garden, Shuttleworth, Bedfordshire

A small licensed wedding venue set in beautiful gardens with peacocks happily roaming around. The small garden cottage seats 20 for the ceremony with up to 60 standing outside. You can also bring in your own caterers, which is a bonus if you're after something particular. The gardens also offer lots of lovely photo opportunities. A beautiful place for small wedding venues. Visit the Swiss Garden website.

Hotel Missoni, Edinburgh

I love this boutique hotel with its colourful decor and the slightly retro furnishings. It's very stylish and deliciously eclectic. It can seat 40 for a sit-down meal and up to 75 standing. A winner for small wedding venues. Visit the Hotel Missoni website.

Adorable farm specialising in relaxed weddings. Three different style marquees, including a Kata tipi and a relaxed party style tent, both perfect for chilling out and mingling. Contacted, awaiting. Visit the Low Farm Weddings and Wellies website.
