As BIG fans of Downton Abbey, we couldn’t wait to see the movie! And WOW what a treat it was! We drank in the stunning introduction of steam trains and countryside vistas until we ended up back where we wanted to be, in the comfort of Downton Abbey.
Feasting our eyes on the big beautiful house situated in those generous grounds my mind leaped off (just for a moment or two) to some other beautiful houses that we have been lucky enough to take a photo booth along to in the South West. Many, in my mind that rival the splendor and Wow Factor of beautiful Downton Abbey (aka Highclere Castle)!
So what do we have in our region that offers glamour, statesmanship, grounds and history in other words a wedding venue to give Downton Abbey a run for its money?

Our Downton Abbey style wedding venue number 6 is the formidable St Audries Park
For the last seven years Yellowbooth have been supplying photo booths to weddings up and down the south west. From Lands End in Cornwall all the way up to Tetbury in the Cotswolds. We have amounted quite a bit of inside info on the venues we’re mentioning here and are more than happy to share it with brides and grooms to be as they sail on their journey across the good sea Wedding Planning.
One more contender for the title of “South West Wedding Venue in the style of Downton Abbey” is Hotel Endsleigh near Tavistock in Devon.
How we fell in love with a local venue and what’s on offer here!
