A Ledbury wedding venue has been named among the best in the country for an autumn ceremony.

The Orchard at Munsley was named in the top 10 country venues for an autumn wedding, alongside two other Herefordshire venues.

The list has been put together by ethical jewellery brand Sacet, which analysed information from wedding planning website Hitched.co.uk.

Brinsop Court Manor House and Barn, near Hereford, took the number one spot, followed by Stanford Farm in Shrewsbury and Bredenbury Court Barns near Bromyard.

Jayne Pritchard, owner of The Orchard at Munsley said: “This was a very welcomed surprise, seeing ourselves in the top 10 venues in the UK.

“It’s also great to see two other fellow Herefordshire venues make the list. Our wedding season runs until the end of September, which is such a beautiful time in the orchard with all the apples on the trees, giving it a real autumnal feel.”

Sacet looked at all ‘Woodland and Festival Wedding’ venues from Hitched.co.uk.

Once these venues were collected, a leader board was created using that venue’s rating as the primary metric and then number of reviews as a second.

Information about these venues was also collected such as their price and capacity.

The auction is raising funds for #BeMoreFrank, a named fund of the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust that provides grants to the families of children with cancer.

As well as the venue, the prize includes a local caterer, wedding band, cake maker, ice cream trailer, hire wear firm, wedding dress supplier, photographer and more.

“We couldn’t be prouder to support the wonderful work #BeMoreFrank does to offer a vital financial lifeline to the families of local children fighting cancer,” said Jayne.

“That’s why we didn’t hesitate to offer our wedding venue as a prize in this unique auction.”
