Best Bishopstrow Brides
Stuck for wedding inspiration?
You’ve been to all the weddings fairs and scoured every bridal magazine, but can you picture how will it all look in real life? Here are five of our fantastic Bishopstrow weddings held at our Wiltshire wedding venue to bring you some big day inspiration…
1. Bride and Groom: Emma and Ben Day
Guests: 82 adults, 10 children
Photographer: Tony Mulholland
Theme: Inspired by Italy
The wedding breakfast tables were inspired by cities in Italy that Emma & Ben would be travelling to during their honeymoon and their favours were mini cornettos. The path down to Doric Temple for the ceremony had a line of home decorated jars sat on circular shaped wood with jars filled with candles and arrangement of flowers. These decorations were then used as the table centerpieces along with a framed map of the city the table was named after.
Beetroot and Citrus Cured Loch Duart Salmon, Horseradish and Lemon Cream, Fennel Ceviche

2. Bride & Groom: Ingrid & Simon Weeks-Smith
Photographer: David McGirr
Theme: Elegant & Intimate
The ceremony room had a cream carpet aisle runner with pink rose petals either side. The main colours were pink and white in which the table had a pink table runner that matched the order of service, table plan and favour boxes.

3. Bride & Groom: Jeanette & Chris Daroczi
Guests: 59 Adults and 3 children
Photographer: Betty Bhandari
Theme: Winter Wonderland Ball
Each guest attending the wedding brought their own Christmas tree decoration to add to the main house tree which then the bride and groom kept as keepsakes. Each guest received a glass jar favour which included hot chocolate powder, marshmallows and a flake so they could have a hot chocolate before bed. Above the door to the restaurant was a large arrangement of mistletoe and each door of the main house had a garland with small Christmas trees in each public room. The tables had a table number enclosed in a glass bell jar with holly, ivy and pine cones scattered on the tables with black table Linen instead of the traditional white colour.
