The Marriot family of hotels are a name you can really trust, and Breadsall Priory (Ilkeston, DE7 6DL) is the oldest in the world, and one of the most prestigious. Set amongst extensive and exquisite grounds but with Derby city centre close at hand, Breadsall Priory is the ideal venue for those who want all their bases covered. Besides the stunning stately home and grounds - with views that guarantee unforgettable photographs - the hotel is home to golf courses, swimming pool and spa, along with the first class event service expected with a leading name like Marriot. Experienced wedding staff are on hand to take care of up to 140 guests, and a number of rooms and packages are available to suit all tastes. As Marriot state, this “stately home offers a sense of grandeur to all events,” and as such is the perfect place to begin married life in style.
Perhaps you like the idea of a private wedding venue but fancy something a little cosier than yurts and teepees. Darwin Lake (Derbyshire, DE4 5LH) could be the perfect venue for you, bringing the freedom of having 10 acres all to yourself with 18 cottages to cater for guests. The purpose-built Darwin Hall is the perfect setting for functions, overlooking your own private lake and with space for a marquee if required. The accommodation houses up to 102 people, which means the party can go on into the wee small hours and even over an entire weekend! With the Peak District on your doorstep and the chance to make the day your own, Darwin Lake offers views to die for and cosy cottages to call home.
Mapperley Farm (Ilkeston, DE7 6BY) offers all the flexibility you could wish for from a wedding venue. Tucked away in the Derbyshire countryside close to idyllic Shipley Country Park and Lakes, the site is situated on a 160 acre family farm. This peaceful plot offers couples the chance to make the day their own, whether that is the festival feel of yurts and tents or the formal, refined feel of marquees. With space for up to 499 guests, the sky is the limit. Mapperley Farm is also a licensed venue, and many couples make the most of the magical woodland on site to host their ceremonies, and help is at hand from experienced staff where needed. Whatever your tastes, the team at Mapperley Farm “guarantee your day will be everything you dream of.”
