There are few things more romantic than the exclusivity and luxury of a bespoke wedding. Few wedding venues in the Midlands could rise to the occasion, so if you want to imitate the royals and make your day truly decadent, read on for Rushton’s suggestions.
An inviting affair
Prince Harry and Meghan will have their own dedicated wedding website, just like Prince William and Catherine before them. We think this is a great idea for any couple, royal or not, who are thinking of throwing a regal wedding!
Hosting your own wedding website means that not only can you send out traditional invitations, you can send digital ones too. Don’t forget to add a monogram or a family crest for a truly elegant touch. Guests will be able to see who is attending via the website, and you can keep track of numbers and other finer details. You can even reveal your seating plans, should you wish. After your big day, you could also upload some pictures or videos to share the atmosphere. This brings us nicely onto your location – you could stream your nuptials via your website to friends and families who can’t make it on the special day.
An exclusive location
It’s always important to have a back-up weather plan – even more so if you are wishing to imitate a royal affair. Regardless of what time of year you wish to marry, it is always worth scheduling a backup ceremony spot – nothing will be left to chance for Harry and Meghan’s outdoor procession.
Should the weather turn, you can host everyone in an alternative part of the property if you have hired your space exclusively. Here at Rushton Hall, we have an incredible Orangery that is certain to remind your guests of palaces and other royal properties. Featuring breath-taking stone work and views of our gardens, this impressive space is just one of the reasons why we stand out from all other wedding venues in Northamptonshire. Weather permitting, you can always get married out in the open, too.
When discussing wedding menus, does your mind wander to feasts that are fit for a king? Your special day doesn’t have to cater to a palate of oysters and caviar. Retain a touch of personalization and work with a chef who can deliver your vision. From canapés to gourmet delights, as long as your menu reflects you both as a couple you will thoroughly enjoy whatever is served. We’re sure Harry and Meghan will have their favourites prepared for after the ceremony! Our Head Chef, Adrian Coulthard, works tirelessly to delight and impress all who dine at Rushton Hall. With a 3 AA Rosette menu to his name you won’t be disappointed.
For a classic touch, arriving in a horse-drawn carriage will make you both feel truly royal. Not enamoured by that idea? Never fear, a beautiful vintage car will evoke the same sentiment. If you want to feel thoroughly pampered and relaxed (and not like you have had to plan your wedding at all) then why not indulge in some time at our spa? The StableYard offers a wide range of treatments to suit both male and female guests. Our high spec facilities are just what you deserve before your big day – all presented in a beautifully calm and relaxed setting, of course.
Hire of Rushton Hall’s Orangery includes use of the Civil Ceremony Room, Drinks Reception Area, Wedding Breakfast Room, Evening Reception Rooms and Bedrooms, depending on Exclusive or Non-Exclusive Use.
