Bride and Groom: Bex and Ben
Wedding venue: Poundon House, a private family home, was built at the turn of the century by a follower of Lutyens in the Palladian style and is approached up an avenue of lime trees. There are two Reception Rooms licensed for Civil Ceremonies, and in addition the Terrace can be used to seat guests providing an exceptional outdoor setting for the Ceremony (maximum guests 200 persons). The Marquee is also licensed for Civil Ceremonies, and is an ideal backdrop for large Weddings. After the Ceremony guests can enjoy views of the countryside before going to the Marquee, situated beneath mature beech trees and in a very secluded part of the garden and unique with its hand blocked printed lining, for dinner and dancing. We recommend two local caterers, Passion For Food and Original Kitchen, and we also welcome outside caterers. We have experience of holding Asian weddings, and the marquee is ideal for large weddings. Alternatively, the Reception Rooms provide a classic setting for couples wanting a more intimate Wedding Day. Venue Website
Glorious Venue in Oxfordshire
Poundon House is a private family house in Oxfordshire and the owners have held weddings and receptions there for over ten years. They, therefore, have a wealth of experience for you to draw on. On Saturday 11 March, they are opening their beautiful home for couples to visit and discuss their wedding requirements.
From small and intimate gatherings in the house, to large parties of up to 300 guests at their Reception Marquee, they cater for all needs. They will be on hand to help you whether you wish for a Civil Ceremony, Church wedding or Asian Blessing; or even two ceremonies on the day!

both from One Events
One Events is one of London's leading events companies and we are delighted to have two of their venues on the site. I wanted to write a little bit about them, and the company, as they are certainly extremely special.
One Marlybone, formally Holy Trinity Church, (see main image) was built in 1826-28 to the designs of famous Sir John Soane to celebrate the defeat of Napoleon. Soane is thought of to be Englan's finest architect in the Neo Classical Style. (His best work is the Bank of England). His Neo Classical influence is evident in the portico of the Church and his constant desire to work with light is never more evident than it is in the first floor galleries. This remarkable venue is used for some illustrious events throughout the year, but it is hard to think of a better venue in which to hold your wedding
This celebrity couple thought so as was recently featured in Hello magazine, who were covering the wedding of Emmerdale's Kevin Fletcher and his singer wife Elizabeth Marsland.
And this is it dressed for a another recent wedding at Christmas - isn't just absolutely beautiful.

One Belgravia is the smallest of One Events venues and added to their venue portfolio only a year ago.
