A country estate near Bromyard has been named one of the popular wedding venues in the UK.

Bredenbury Court Barns has been included on the roll of honour compiled by Hitched, a wedding planning service.

Hitched reviewed its web activity over the past 12 months and named Bredenbury Court Barns as the second most popular venue in the UK.

Giving couples the run of their very own 29-acre country estate, Bredenbury Court Barns is set in the grounds of a manor house that dates back to 1726.

Despite only opening as a wedding venue in June 2019, it has already secured a host of awards.

Bredenbury Court Barns’ co-owner and managing director, Simon Steel, said: “We are over the moon to be named as one of the most sought-after wedding venues in the country.

“The venue’s stunning location and the flexibility we offer has proved to be a winning formula and it is testament to our wonderful couples, their guests, lovely reviews and our down to earth, professional wedding team behind it all too.”

'Incredible views'

Head of housekeeping Elisa Clark added: “When we serve breakfast to couples and their wedding guests the following morning, guests consistently say what a great celebration and what fun they had at the Barns.

“The venue continues to go from strength to strength as more and more people discover the Barns, graced with incredible views and a connection with the surrounding countryside.”

Boasting views of the Malvern Hills, Bredenbury Court Barns caters for smaller gatherings of 40 guests and larger sit-down meals for up to 180 people.

Its current use as a wedding venue is apt, as Bredenbury Court and Estate was gifted as a wedding present in the 1800s.

It later operated as a school until 2016 when St Richard’s School closed.

Bredenbury Court Barns also featured in the list of the UK’s Most Popular Venues last year, as compiled by Hitched.
