The most romantic English wedding venue?

The birthplace of a celebrated romantic poet… on the edge of the Lake District… a National Trust property with endless charm, Wordsworth House is a beautiful wedding venue for a romantic ceremony.

Wordsworth House wedding venue makes history

Wordsworth House & Garden was the childhood home of William Wordsworth in the 1770s and the gardens inspired many of his poems. The house was licensed for weddings on the 6th of August 2012 and is the first National Trust property in the county to be licensed for civil ceremonies.

Natalie and Ian O’Neill jumped at the chance to make history by being the first couple to tie the knot at the unique venue. Theirs was the first ever wedding ceremony at the childhood home of the 19th century Poet Laureate William Wordsworth.

Bride Natalie said, “The ceremony in Wordsworth House was really intimate and the gardens were looking beautiful so the photo opportunities were amazing. By getting married on a Friday when the house is closed, we had it to ourselves so there were no other people running around. It was so special.

“We held the reception at the Trout Hotel, which is right next door to Wordsworth House – it wouldn’t have been any easier even if we had had it all in one place. It was perfect.”

Sue Eccles, The Trout Hotel’s Managing Director, said: “It was a real honour for us to host the wedding breakfast of the first couple to tie the knot at Wordsworth House. Our staff really enjoyed playing a part in not only a special day for Natalie and Ian, but a marriage milestone for Cumbria with Wordsworth House being the first National Trust property in the county to be licensed for civil ceremonies.

    It looks lovely, Claire! I suspect that it was quite an easy decision to choose this place?
