Top Somerset Wedding Ideas

With weddings becoming increasingly lavish and over-the-top, it is hard to make yours stand out from the crowd. As one of the leading Somerset wedding venues we believe that adding local character into your wedding is the way forward, introducing our quirky Somerset wedding ideas to make it a day to remember.

1.    There’s fun in fondu

Somerset is home to some of the best cheeses from Cheddar, Applewood, Bath Blue, Farleigh Wallop to Black-Eyed Susan. This spectacular smorgasbord of local cheese will really impress your guests. Whether you decide to make a cheese-tower wedding cake or have a selection of fondu for your guests to indulge in, be creative in how you incorporate these local delicacies. But it is important to make sure you have an accompanying mountain of crackers, biscuits, chutney, grapes and apple at arm’s reach.

2.     Sweet not savoury, Somerset style

If cheese is not your thing and you fancy something a little sweeter, and a little less stinky, a traditional sponge might be order of the day. But we don’t want any average wedding cake, we want one that the guests will remember.  Why not add Somerset character by replicating a local landmark such Glastonbury Tor. This quirky centrepiece will definitely be one to remember.

3.     Drink up thy cider

When it comes to selecting the very best local tipples, Somerset has it’s fair share. Forget champagne for some good old fashioned Somerset fun, a couple of kegs of the county’s finest orchard cider and you’re guaranteed a great night! For that extra quirky touch, how about serving your cider in mason jars? Or why not opt for Somerset Sloe Gin and Somerset Cider Brandy as these always go down well.

4.     It’s all about the heritage

Somerset is home to many grand old homes and country manor houses, so how about a delightfully elegant afternoon tea in place of the traditional wedding breakfast? Channel your inner Elizabeth Bennet with a glorious spread of cucumber sandwiches, smoked salmon, scones, macarons, champagne and, of course, tea. This Somerset twist will really get you in the mood for your countryside celebrations.

5.     Seated at local hotspots

Another great way of adding some of that sought-after country charm into your wedding is by naming the tables after local places, perhaps ones that mean a lot to you. Radstock, Midsomer Norton, Cheddar, Green Ore and Priddy are all possibilities, although you might want to go even more specific and choose your favourite pubs, cafes, or walking spots.

So there you go, now that you’ve got plenty of exciting ideas for your perfect Somerset wedding, why not go ahead and give one of the finest wedding venues in Somerset a call?
