Hilles House is a famous arts and crafts masterpiece on the western edge of the Cotswolds escarpment with views over five counties – from the Severn Bridges to the Shropshire hills – built by Detmar Blow. The Blow family now offers a unique bohemian boutique wedding venue with its 350 sq. m Palace Yurt for up to 250 guests, and has a civil ceremony license for a 100. There is no accommodation in the house, but nearby village, Painswick, known as Queen of the Cotswolds, offers accommodation to fit every budget and a churchyard with 99 yew trees.
Hedsor House is an absolutely amazing place,’ according to Johnny Depp – which doesn’t even start to sum up the beauty of this Georgian house, designed by the architect responsible for Somerset House. Comes complete with its own half-mile-long drive.

The Gillyflower, at Elmore Court, Gloucestershire, was built and soundproofed with parties in mind.
Cowdray Park is set in 110 acres of landscaped gardens and parkland, Cowdray House has heaps of choice for your big day. There’s the magnificent Buck Hall (pictured), the Tudor Manor House or even the golf Clubhouse, plus 22 bedrooms for all your favourite people.
The Badminton Estate this is the Duke of Beaufort’s estate, and you can have your wedding toasty warm inside or in a marquee by the deer park. A set by Bunter’s prog-rock band, the Listening Device, is sadly not part of the package.
Goodwood – The Earl of March and Kinrara, heir to the Goodwood Estate in West Sussex, is v. good-looking. If you’re reading this though, you’re probably already engaged: oh well. But that’s not to stop you from getting married on the estate’s 12,000 acres, which, tbh, are even prettier than him.
Sorn Castle – How’s this for romance? When Lord Sorn married Madeline Moncrieff in 1923, he had a stained-glass window depicting an Edinburgh cobbled street positioned on the main staircase to remind her of her home town. Remember to point this out to your husband; it will make your honeymoon demands seem positively tame.
Belvoir Castle – They have a castle piper! A real-life piper who can, if you want, lead your merry gang from the reception to the dancefloor or rose garden or lake… isn’t that what you always dreamt of?
The ICA Nash and Brandon Rooms. There’s not much smarter than having your reception just up the road from Buckingham Palace. Except, perhaps, having it catered by the marvellous Arnold & Henderson in the divine Regency Nash and Brandon Rooms above the ICA. We’re talking the most fabulous seasonal British feast – sharing plates or three-course service – followed by a cheeky Welsh rarebit at midnight. And lots of columns. Inside and out.

The band were booked for the wedding reception of my son and new wife. The guys were brilliant, music was excellent, they were very smartly dressed and so pleasant to deal with. From the initial booking of the event I was kept updated, the manager Gary responded straight away to any queries I had. Overall a very professional band. I would not hesitate to recommend them. Price wise, they were also one of the best and charged only half of what other bands quoted.

We saw Steelasophical at a friend’s wedding, they were so good, we felt that we had to book them for our special day at Hintlesham Golf Club.

Thanks guys, you did an amazing job, an awesome collection of songs created a great atmosphere for our drinks reception. All our guests loved you and we loved seeing you again to enjoy a unique sound that really started our wedding reception off in the best way possible. Book these guys, they are amazing!

Love the new Mrs & Mrs Clark, Felixstowe.


Steelasophical steel band played at our wedding. We were only expecting a solo performance but were delighted when a duo played. Throughout their performance they went that extra mile. Would highly recommend this band for any occasion. Many many thanks for making our day even more memorable.

Vicky and Rupert Claxton 10/10


I was chosen to appear on c4 come dine with me in april. It was a Caribbean themed evening and I thought what better way to entertain than to have a steel band. Gary was amazing. It was like we were really in Barbados. I honestly believe that it was because of his amazing performance that I went on to win. Thank you so much Gary.

One of the highest blessings in being considered by many to be amongst the best Caribbean musical entertainers in the UK, is the opportunity to be invited to perform at the very best venues around the country. I can honestly say that this venue sits within that category. (wonderful in-house team) – A pleasure to perform here and very much highly recommended… Gary (Steelasophical Steel Band)
