One of, if not the most important decision to make once you’ve settled into life as an engaged couple is where exactly to hold your big day. The locations you settle on for tying the knot and the celebrations that follow will forever hold a special place in your heart and memories, so it’s a huge decision.

And it can be really hard, especially when there are so many amazing venues out there. But if you’re in the Hertfordshire area and are currently looking for some all-important venue inspiration, then we might be able to offer some – in the form of the completely stunning Micklefield Hall.

Micklefield Hall is the perfect setting for the quintessentially English wedding; not only are the house and grounds themselves stunning, but the 16th century Great Barn has recently undergone a renovation – and it’s well worth a look.

To celebrate the renovation of the Great Barn, owners Jamie and Anna Rankin are holding an open day at Micklefield on Sunday 19th April, from 11am-4pm. A carefully curated selection of suppliers (including the likes of The Cake House, Kalm Kitchen, Brides of Berkhampsted, Snappabox and John Nassari) will be there on the day – which will be set up as close as possible to how a real wedding would actually run.

On offer will be live entertainment, wedding dresses to try on, mini makeovers, entertainment for children, personal tours every 30 minutes, free floristry advice, wine-tasting, mouth-watering catering, cake tasting and a comfortable, dedicated consultation area to discuss your wedding.

Anna Rankin says: “The barn will be dressed in shades of lavender for spring, so couples will be able to see how their day might look. All of our handpicked suppliers are creating wonderful displays to inspire brides and grooms and to demonstrate the different options in a fun and interactive way. We are planning a truly enjoyable and memorable day out and cannot wait to welcome brides to our beautiful grounds and to give them a good idea of just how amazing their wedding day can be.”

I don’t know about you, but I can almost taste the Pimms that’s sure to be served in that beautiful courtyard :)
