A Fine Example of a Glastonbury Wedding
Glastonbury, known as a major pilgrimage site for neo-pagans, King Arthur, the Tor and of course, Pilton’s world-renowned Glastonbury Festival, is also an ideal area for getting married in the countryside!
Today, we’re looking at an example wedding that is occurring in the Glastonbury region, and have collected a number of our favourite wedding businesses from www.theweddingsecret.co.uk, based in the nearby area. If you are thinking about getting married somewhere else in Somerset, the same can be applied!
Situated just south of Shepton Mallet, and in the tiny village of East Pennard, lies the idyllic country manor that is Pennard House. This stunning stately Georgian home is just a few miles away from the site of Glastonbury Festival- the heart of Somerset!
If you want to get married away from Glastonbury, then look north to the foot of the Mendip Hills, and adjacent to the lovely Blagdon Lake, where you can find the luxurious vineyard and wedding venue Aldwick Court Farm. Offering an exclusive 5% off overall venue hire when you book them via The Wedding Secret, they put forward a fantastic opportunity to get married in the countryside.
If you have a large space or a field at your disposal, you may want to create your very own wedding reception venue! Abbas Marquees, located just up the road from Pennard House- mentioned above – and in the same village that Glastonbury Festival is hosted within- these experts have festivals and tents at their very hearts.
Those who want to marry out in the countryside will either want a classical, traditional white wedding dress, or something that’s a little different.

Flowers are synonymous with nature and the countryside.

The Walled Garden at Mells, near Frome, is a florist perfect for such a cause.
