Kim and Craig chose The Lost Orangery at Euridge Manor – voted the best country wedding venue in the 2020 UK Wedding Awards – as the setting for their wedding, but tracking down the perfect spot from four thousand miles away wasn’t exactly easy.
“As we are based in Dubai but wanted our wedding to be in the British countryside, I was limited to searching online for wedding venues,” Kim explained.
“It took about three months of trawling the internet and contacting venues before I came across the The Lost Orangery at Euridge Manor and we booked it straight away. It was quite nerve wracking booking a venue before viewing it, but we were not disappointed when we went back to the UK a few months later and had the viewing as it was everything we imagined it would be from what we had seen online.
“We chose this venue because we wanted an outdoor wedding and the stunning architecture, water features and gardens against a backdrop of the Cotswolds countryside were perfect for the type of wedding we wanted. It also had lots of locations for different stages of the day – we had the ceremony in the boathouse, the drinks reception on the lawn overlooking the boathouse and the wedding breakfast in the rose garden.
“The other major pulls were the exclusive hire (you hire and stay there for three nights) and the fact that it was a dry hire meant we had full control over all the suppliers we used and the type of set up we wanted.”
