Congratulations on your engagement – let the fun begin.

Over the past 20+ years, the Bijou Wedding Venues team have welcomed thousands of couples to their unique country houses and seen the most incredible celebrations take place both inside and out.

Below are 5 expert tips from the Bijou Wedding Venues team on why they believe hiring a wedding venue on an exclusive use basis is the way to go…

 

Privacy

Weddings are private for so many reasons and by booking an exclusive use wedding venue, you’re guaranteed complete exclusivity and privacy from the moment you arrive at your venue on the morning of your wedding, until you leave as a married couple the following day. The venue team managing your day (and any suppliers you hire to decorate your venue) will be the only people on site aside from the family and friends you choose to be there. There’ll be no danger of any unwanted guests appearing or the fear of bumping in to another couple as an exclusive use wedding venue will only be focusing on your special occasion throughout the day.

Flexibility

The beauty of hiring a wedding venue on an exclusive use basis is that you can transform it in to whatever style you want, for the duration of your event. The planning team at the venue can advise and point you in the direction of the right suppliers who can help make your day look spectacular. The timings of your day will be your decision but it’s advisable to take the advice of the venue team as they will know what works best when it comes to food, drink and making your guests comfortable.

Budgeting

No one likes talking about money, but when it comes to booking a wedding, budget must be discussed and agreed by everyone. Every wedding venue will offer something different, but when hiring a Bijou Wedding Venue the team will ensure that your guests have everything they need to enjoy your very special occasion to the full. Aside from the venue hire, a Bijou Wedding includes all of the food, drink, accommodation, tables, linen and service. You can also keep track of the cost of your day via an easy to use, proprietary, online wedding planner, shared with all couples who book a date at a Bijou Wedding Venue.

Personal Service

At an exclusive use wedding venue, all of the attention and focus will be on you; from the moment you request a brochure until the day of your wedding and throughout. Our team ensure that every requirement is taken care of and if there’s something bespoke that you simply must have on your day such as a particular dish or advice on pairing wine, we’ll do our very best to make it happen. For 24 hours, treat one of our venues like it were your own home.

Recommended Suppliers

Exclusive use wedding venues tend to have a selection of wedding suppliers who they work with and trust. So, whether you’re planning a last-minute wedding and are in need to book suppliers in a hurry, or you have plenty of time to plan your day but want to book suppliers with a good reputation, see if your exclusive use wedding venue can point you in the direction of suppliers they’ve worked with closely and seen perform time and time again in the past.
