Getting Married in Leicestershire

Thinking of getting married in Leicestershire? If so, you are in the right place! The information below will help kick start your planning.

Leicestershire – a beautiful landlocked county in the English midlands. Home to the Melton Mowbray pork pie, Red Leicester cheese, Leicester City F.C. (surprise winners of the Premier League in 2016!), and of course, the resting place of Richard III of England. It is a rural county, filled with beautiful landscapes and incredibly interesting heritage sites. These factors make it the perfect wedding location. So, let’s get planning!


Leicestershire is home to a wide variety of stunning wedding venues. There are rural options, nestled in the beautiful countryside (such as Mythe Barn, Willow Marsh Farm and The Woodlands at Hothorpe Hall), manor houses (such as Catthorpe Manor), stately homes (such as Hothorpe Hall and Prestwold Hall), and historic buildings such as Belvoir Castle.


Once you’ve decided on your perfect venue, you’ll want to start thinking about wedding stationery. Leicestershire is home to lots of amazing stationers, such as Rather Lovely Stuff, PYE, Heronswood Stationery and Paperchain Wedding Stationery.
