Small Weddings in the Cotswolds

24th May 2019

Intimate Cotswold weddings

Whilst our beautiful hotels are often thought of as perfect venues for big white weddings (which they are!) – we also welcome small weddings in the Cotswolds!

When planning a more intimate wedding, choosing the venue is a key part in creating atmosphere on your special day. Traditional venues like ours are full of surprise spaces that might be perfect for smaller celebrations…

The Bay Tree Hotel in Burford is a perfect example of this. Within its charming higgledy-piggledy layout, you’ll find a lovely collection of rooms and spaces from which to host your perfect, unique wedding day.

The Bay Tree is an ideal wedding venue for all seasons, with a garden summer house for warmer weather and a real log fire in the Hawthorne room for cosy autumn and winter weddings. Wedding coordinator Maureen suggests the option to use both spaces to add dimension to your day – and of course to fully show off the Bay Tree’s character!

Small weddings in the Cotswolds allow for all the beauty of a British wedding whilst merrymaking with your very closest family and friends. Maureen recommends inviting all guests to stay for one or two nights for a fabulous extended celebration (where dogs are welcome too!). An intimate wedding also allows for more flexibility, especially when it comes to ceremony times – perfect for those who’d like a more relaxed day.

And there’s still plenty of opportunity to make your day personal with stationery, menu choices, flowers and entertainment (but only if you want them!). What’s more, your money goes further and you’ll be able to spend quality time making memories with every single guest!

Small weddings at The Bay Tree are available Sunday – Thursday, subject to availability. Packages and pricing are tailored to each individual wedding so please contact Maureen to arrange a show-round and chat!
