Dewsall Court Herefordshire The Twins Wedding Photography 1

Hello lovelies! I’m so ruddy excited about this article because it contains the most insanely amazing giveaway from one of the most gorgeous wedding venues in the UK.

We’ve always prided ourselves here at Love My Dress in hosting the very best giveaways in wedding blog land – and this latest addition to our repertoire of competitions is no exclusion. May I proudly introduce you to Dewsall Court, an exclusive use wedding venue located in the heart of the exquisite Herefordshire countryside.

Part of what makes Dewsall Court so special is it’s idyllic location and sense of seclusion, which provides a real sense of luxurious escapism for the wedded couple and their guests. This isn’t just another wedding venue, it’s a much loved former family home with a special ambience that makes people feel relaxed and welcomed as soon as they walk through the door.  Add to this a reputable and highly outstanding level of service, food, catering and accommodation and a pretty epic space for saying ‘I do’ comes into play.

Dewsall Court is a 17th century estate (originally built in 1644) that has been painstakingly restored and lovingly refurbished by a talented team. Set amidst 12 acres of breathtakingly beautiful grounds, Dewsall Court offers a restored 17th century house, a modern barn conversion, an ancient Church, secret cellar bar and luxurious accommodation.

“At Dewsall Court there are a multitude of places where you can say ‘I do’. The picturesque church at the bottom of the garden or our hand-painted Chinoiserie room within the restored house, perhaps the stone and wooden pillared Wainhouse barn or just the peaceful canopied outdoors.”

“Your wedding celebrations start as soon as you enter the gates to our idyllic corner of the Herefordshire countryside. With views of the Black Mountains and surrounded by 1,000 acres of Duchy of Cornwall land, Dewsall Court is an enchanting destination that your guests won’t forget.”
