Perfect Venues for a War and Peace Inspired Wedding

The ultimate in opulent Romance

War and Peace Wedding Theme

We are all so loving the new BBC adaptation of Tolstoy's War and Peace. Each episode is breathtakingly beautiful; the costumes esquisite, the locations stunning. Our only fault is that it is always over too soon. So why not prolong this gloriousness and create your own wedding based on the Napoleonic Russian aristocracy?

Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire is a masterpiece of 18th Century architecture set in more than 2000 acres of 'Capabilty' Brown parkland. Imagine arriving like Natasha in a carriage wrapped in furs (fake is fine)....

Or if you crave a more outdoor type of affair and imagine yourself being driven through the 'Russian' countryside, you could opt for a more rustic approach...

Olympic medallist Joanna Rowsell's wedding last summer

The 26-year-old gold medallist married Daniel Shand, an accountant and former cyclist, in a civil ceremony held at the countryside venue. Joanna was introduced to Daniel by her Olympic teammate Lizzie Armitstead several years ago. Looking radiant in a pink lace dress, Joanna was accompanied by four bridesmaids, Keeley and Natalie Shand plus two fellow national cyclists Dame Sarah Storey and Lizzie Armitstead. Here are a few pics from her wedding which was in July last year.

Scottish Weddings

Scottish Weddings

You don't have to be Kate Moss to look amazing in tartan - honestly! We just chose this picture because we love it....as we love the idea of a Scottish wedding. I mean, it's just instantly romantic isn't it - without trying. Not just the Gretna Green thing - although how fun would that be? But the dramantic scenery, the bagpipes, the history, even the weather! 

Scottish bride and groom
This Scottish bride and groom don't care about the wet... they positively embrace it - have fun with it. Infact the styling potential is endless.

We have so many wonderful Scottish wedding venues, but one of the most romantic is the Lovat Hotel situated on the banks of Loch Ness.
