Wedding Locations in Somerset

If you’re holding a wedding in Somerset and plan to use one of our marquees, the county has a whole host of perfect village locations to choose from. Whether you’re looking for a classic market town wedding, a view of the sea, or rolling hills, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Here are five fabulous examples of Somerset villages you could use as the backdrop for your dream wedding:

Crewkerne

Crewkerne’s history dates back to Saxon times and its classic market town has been preserved beautifully. Imagine having your wedding photos taken in front of the village’s stunning nineteenth-century Georgian houses or next to the town’s famous fifteenth-century parish church, St Bartholomew’s, which overlooks Bincombe Valley.

Castle Cary

Castle Cary is another stunning market town and is a popular wedding venue with its golden stone buildings and luscious countryside. Its highlights include the old Horse Pond, the thatched George Hotel, the eye-catching market hall and its eighteenth-century roundhouse building. Your guests may even be able to squeeze in a hobble down the cobbled streets to check out the antiques shops and sample the local produce.

Bridgwater

If you’re looking for beautiful countryside as the backdrop to your wedding, Bridgwater is a fantastic option. Tucked between the Somerset Levels and the Quantock Hills, this town is rich in history and buzzing with life. If you are a carnival fan, it might be worth planning your wedding for November, when the village’s Guy Fawkes Carnival takes place.

Glastonbury

Most famous for its music festival, Glastonbury is also a quirky, mystical town that draws thousands of visitors each year. Glastonbury was a sacred pilgrimage site during the Middle Ages and contains a ruin that many believe to be the final resting place for King Arthur and Lady Guinevere. The Chalice Well and Gardens and the infamous Glastonbury Tor will give your wedding pictures an iconic backdrop.

Bath

If you’re looking for a less rural venue, Bath is an architectural triumph and a city that is renowned for its romantic allure. Steeped in history, its Roman Baths, Royal Crescent and Circus attract tourists from all over the world. However, there are still plenty of green spaces hidden among the Bath stone terraces so you can offer your guests the perfect blend of city life and country charm.
