Getting married is one of the most exciting times in anyone’s life, so the venue that you choose has to be perfect. Choosing your wedding venue can shape the style and direction of your whole day and choosing the venue is very often the first step in the planning of the big occasion itself.
Here are some great tips and advice on how to choose your wedding hotel in the Lake District.
Location, Location, Location
As you already know; you have chosen the Lake District to get married in, so the question then becomes where exactly in the Lake District should you go. The answer to that comes down to personal choice, but if you are looking for the best combination of facilities, access for suppliers and beautiful Lake District views, then there is nowhere better than the area surrounding Windermere. Close enough to local amenities so you can find all the wedding suppliers you need, and easy access by road and plenty of places for your guests to stay. The shores and fells around Windermere are some of the most beautiful in the Lakes and Broadoaks; nestled in Troutbeck, just outside of Windermere Town is the perfect location for your wedding.
Wedding Party Size
The venue you choose for your wedding must be able to accommodate your wedding party numbers. So, make a realistic list of the family and friends you would like to invite to your wedding, set a maximum number and use that as your benchmark. As it is your wedding, remember that it is up to you whom you invite so don’t get swayed by thinking you have to invite extra extended family or your entire workplace, because you don’t. Broadoaks can accommodate up to 130 guests for an evening reception, up to 100 for a sit-down meal and has smaller more intimate rooms for more modest wedding parties.
Wedding Venue Features & Facilities
The facilities and features at a wedding hotel can make all the difference to your big day. Photographs are a huge part of any couple’s wedding so having a stunning backdrop and interesting places to take pictures is a real plus for any couple getting married in the Lake District. Fortunately, Broadoaks is a stunning Lake District country hotel situated in six acres of grounds with lovely fells and trees surrounding it. With traditional features and interesting aspects surrounding the whole hotel, whatever season your wedding is in the backdrop to your photographs will be stunning.
