#5 Chicheley Hall
Chichely Hall is an 18th Century, Baroque style, English country house in Buckinghamshire and is a wonderful venue with great interiors and amazing grounds with lots of little areas where you can go to get some beautiful images of you and your partner. There is a small church to the rear of the property, so for those that want to do everything at one venue, this is ideal. The church is a small church, so this would suit a more intimate wedding but the main house itself is much larger to suit your evening reception for family and friends.
