The 3 Best Outdoor Wedding Venues in Leicestershire - Hoesh International Ltd

If you are reading this article right after it was published, chances are that the scenery outside your window does not scream “grab a drink and go sunbathing”. But all is not lost! We have something prepared for you that will make you dream of a warm, sunny afternoon, sipping prosecco.. in your wedding dress! It’s time to fantasise – and hopefully get something in your basket – about your outdoor wedding venue.

Are you on the lookout for a dream venue to host your outdoor reception in the Midlands? We have narrowed down the choice for you! Whether you are thinking of a beach ceremony (I know what you are thinking but, do you really need the seaside when you have beautiful lakes in the Peak District?), a forest wedding or a farmhouse venue, we have listed 3 spectacular places just to spear you time for an extra cup of tea.

A little disclaimer: the dream of an outdoor ceremony should always be accompanied by an inside backup solution (we have learnt from UK weather unpredictability). For this reason, our selection comprises only those locations that are licensed for both indoor and outdoor ceremonies.  


Strong points:

  • Guests accommodations
  • Luxurious cabin in the woods
  • Fully inclusive wedding breakfast
  • Garden Cottage for overnight stay before the wedding
  • Alternative indoor space

Have you ever dreamed of spending your first night as a newlywed in a treehouse? This venue will make it happen!

Easily reachable from both Leicestershire and Northamptonshire, The Woodlands will surely get your attention. The limit between indoor and outdoor space never felt so ephemeral, thanks to the extensive glass doors and windows erasing the boundary between nature and home interior. This also translates into three rooms filled with always-guaranteed natural light, even on the gloomiest days. Choosing this venue means that the eventuality of an unpredicted indoor re-organisation will still meet your dream of an outdoor ceremony. If there will be no need for an alternative setting, your outside civil ceremony will be held in the so called Hideaway, a cosy nest accommodated between the thriving trees surrounding the area.

But let’s get back to this venue’s premise: the Treehouse. Pass the guests accommodation, get lost into the woods and you will spot a luxurious cabin, ready to cuddle you for the night. Top it up with a fully inclusive wedding breakfast and this venue will beat your expectations.



Strong points:

  • Organisation assistance
  • Hosting only one ceremony at a time
  • Accommodations available for up to 12 guests
  • Dedicated team available for organisation

The quintessential rustic yet elegant wedding venue is just an alternative way to name The Willow Marsh Farm. If this is the first time you hear about this splendid location, we highly recommend a weekend getaway to experience what it has to offer. A quick visit will be enough for you to tick that venue box off your organisation schedule.

Especially suitable for a bucolic wedding, this dream venue stands out as the most romantic farm barn you can wish for. Delight yourself and your guests with breath-taking panoramic views over the countryside at the border between Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.

This picturesque venue will surely make an impression on your wedding photos. A strong attention to details is what makes this place so unique! The blend of lakes and pastures with rustic materials like stone brickwork and wooden panels bring a particular photogenic feel to your photo souvenirs. Pack your dress in your personalised garment cover and you are good to go. A team of specialists will take care of all the little details for you. Such a cuddle!



Strong points:

  • Great capacity
  • Private lake
  • Two large function rooms
