The Wiltshire countryside is perfect for an intimate wedding day. We had the most incredible April sun and being from Cornwall, it was so good to get a fix of the South West after locking down (because I can’t even remember how many we got up to in the end?!).
Larmer Tree Gardens is a fantastic intimate wedding venue nestled in the countryside on the Wiltshire/Dorset border. It offers a vast range of locations for every aspect of your wedding day, which means there are many to explore for your couple portraits too. It’s a beaut!
The website description says it all:
//Our wonderful 11-acre gardens are set in the heart of Cranborne Chase, an area of outstanding natural beauty on the Wiltshire/ Dorset border. Well away from the hustle and bustle of busy modern life. The Larmer Tree Gardens, created by General Pitt Rivers in 1880 are an extraordinary example of Victorian extravagance and vision, the perfect country wedding venue. The gardens hold a unique collection of ornate buildings, ranging from the spectacular Singing Theatre to the magical Roman Temple. The majestic trees and intimate arbours create secrecy and surprise, whilst the open lawns provide a perfect setting for reception drinks and a relaxing game of croquet. The magical garden welcomes guests to wander through hidden walkways, unwind on the lawns and to discover the unique charm of this beautiful setting.//
Above all, one of my favourite features about the venue was the quirkiness of each and every location. Some of them were hidden away and it was so lovely to come across them later on! Consequently, it added a magical touch to a venue that already took your breath away. Oh, and the peacocks were the icing on the cake.
“The most beautiful place for our perfect day. This was everything we dreamed it would be for our wedding.”
In conclusion, I can tell you Larmer Tree Gardens will not disappoint if you’re considering getting married and having an intimate Wiltshire countryside wedding there!
