And so this is to let you know about another wedding open day from the wonderful Country House Weddings stable. This time it's the glorious St Audries Park in Somerset. We absolutely love this one especially the stunning Georgian orangery (pictured below). Also, rather fantastically, they offer exclusive use of the entire house and you can invite up to 250 guests for the evening reception and party. Not only that, there are 31 luxury bedrooms reserved exclusively for the night of your wedding!! You can make the celebrations last for the whole weekend!
This is an opportunity to see the extremely lovely St Audries Park in all its glory. They are open from midday until 4pm and no appointment is necessary. If you are thinking of getting married in Somerset, do not miss this open day! There are still some available dates in 2015 and 2016....
How beautiful does it look??

The great British seaside can be a fantastic inspiration for your wedding, and there are endless ways to interpret the theme, for example with food you could go with fish n chips, icecream vans or, if you're feeling flash, oysters! (not forgettting you could always order your own seaside stick of rock with both your names printed through it...). There are also so many props to give your wedding a seaside spin - deckchairs, surf boards, shells, seaweed garlands and vintage metal buckets and spades. The British seaside has such a distinct look and what could be prettier than pastel beach huts and seaside bunting. And although Punch and Judy might not serve as your inspirational couple, they could be your wedding entertainment - for adults and kids alike.
If you don't want to go the whole hog and hold your wedding on a beach, but still want to adopt this lovely theme, you could always consider a venue close by. We've got two great (and very different) venues on the site that we would recommend. Portsmouth Guildhall has the most beautiful exterior and as you can see, grand steps leading to its bronzed doors which would make an incredible wedding photograph. It has a variety of rooms, both elegant and spacious, but our favourite is the Zodiac gallery which has the largest acid-stained mural in the world! Located minutes from the sea, you could easily adopt a seaside-flavoured theme.
