It’s officially wedding Bridgerton season! 

The latest season of the much-loved series is back on Netflix, except this time with a little spin; it’s a two-part series, a dream come true for every fan. To commemorate the return of one of our favourite Netflix series, Crown Pavilions has carefully curated a list of the most exclusive National Trust Wedding venues across the country, offering unparalleled charm and elegance. 

The UK is home to many beautiful wedding venues, from historic castles to breath-taking gardens, many of which are from the Regency era, bringing your Bridgerton fantasies to life. 

Crown Pavilions’ top five National Trust Venues fit for a Bridgerton wedding include: 

Fountains Abbey, North Yorkshire 

A renowned National Trust venue, Fountains Abbey is where historic architecture meets the vibrancy of summer blooms. Couples are married in the beautiful Fountains Hall, before enjoying celebratory drinks and canapes in the private walled garden overlooking the River Skell. Could this be the perfect venue for the budding relationship between Penelope and Colin, breaking away from the conventional country houses or something bolder and more daring?

Stourhead, Wiltshire 

Situated at the heart of the Stourhead estate, Stourhead House is surrounded by breathtaking 18th century landscape gardens, with the Temple of Apollo providing a stunning setting for any wedding ceremony. The House itself epitomises everything we know and love about Bridgerton, a Palladian mansion with a fantastic regency library and an incredible art collection. 

Stowe, Buckinghamshire 

This pick featured in the very first season, where Daphne Bridgerton and the Duke of Hastings saw their relationship begin to blossom despite its bad start. Stowe was used to emulate Vauxhall Gardens, the heart of London’s nightlife in the Regency era. 

The Regency Era is known as a period of intense cultural flowering, and what better way to celebrate your special day by channelling this era through lavish celebrations! You have the venue, the next way to achieve your Bridgerton wedding of your dreams is to focus on the tablescapes, just like the splendour displayed in the series. 

Darren Watts, Showroom Development and Design Director at Wren Kitchens shares his top tips how to create the ultimate Bridgerton tablescapes. 

“Start with a beautiful lace tablecloth as the base. The delicate pattern will evoke the elegance of the Regency era. For an extra touch of opulence, scatter strands of faux pearls along the length of the table or use pearl napkin rings. 

As for the centrepiece, place tall, gold ornate candlesticks as the showstoppers. Opt for ones with sleek designs to add drama and romance against the white candlesticks, these will look great staggered on a kitchen island. 

Arrange bouquets of pink and purple flowers in vintage-inspired glass vases or teacups and scatter them along the table. Roses and peonies are perfect choices. Use delicate China or vintage-inspired plates with floral accents for an extra touch of luxury.

Pair with ornate gold or silver cutlery and delicate teacups and saucers for a truly regal feel. For the finishing touches, consider adding small details like woven placemats under plates, and regal white doily tiered cake stand to display your homemade creations.” 

Tattershall Castle 

Tattershall Castle, England’s finest brick-built medieval castle is an idyllic setting fit for a perfect wedding with ceremonies taking place in the Parlour. The Parlour, with its magnificent high ceiling, intricately carved stone fireplace, and striking stained glass windows, creates a unique atmosphere and intimate ceremony.  It may not hold as many people as the other National Trust Venues on the list, but its beauty and heritage more than make up for it. Bridgerton enthusiasts will find its romantic and historic charm a truly captivating and immersive experience. 

Waddesdon Manor, Buckinghamshire 

Located in the heart of Buckinghamshire, Waddesdon is a spectacular French renaissance-style chateau with an extensive art collection. Surrounded by stunning gardens, this venue is the perfect backdrop for a Bridgerton-inspired wedding. Did you know that the outdoor shots of Kew Palace in Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story are in fact the flourishing gardens of Waddesdon Manor? Is it a surprise that it’s one of our top picks?  

So, if you’re a Bridgerton fan looking to bring your wedding fantasies to life, this curated guide on the most lavish National Trust Wedding venues is a great place to start gathering inspiration. Each location offers a unique and captivating setting for your special day, with each offering their own twist on charm, elegance, and historical beauty. It’s time to party like it’s 1815!
