As a Wedding Caterer working across the East Midlands, I get to visit some of the loveliest wedding venues the area has to offer. I often get asked for advice or questioned about my favourites so I wanted to write a blog to list just a handful of the best (in my opinion!) Wedding Venues in Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire…
East Bridgford Hill
East Bridgford Hill is a quirky little, family run venue on the outskirts of Nottinghamshire. Furnished in authentic, chic antiques, set in pleasant grounds and with several function rooms available for a variety of different types of wedding celebration, East Bridgeford Hill is perfect for couples looking for a personal, unique venue.

They offer a variety of options for Marquee and Tipi weddings in their grounds and provide a support package to ensure you are looked after for entirety of the weekend of your wedding.
