We hired a private chef, who came to our house and provided a 5 course menu. It was brilliant, very affordable and took masses of pressure off. We provided all the drink and got a local bar person along to help serve. It was perfect x
There are some wonderful small venues. There was a venue near us that was so gorgeous but it was just too small for us, we wanted 50 people it could only accommodate 35. Have a look near you at small boutique hotels/country houses. Just in case you're near Yorkshire, it was Ashmount Country House: https://www.ashmounthaworth.co.uk/
Where are you based? Boxted Hall in Suffolk exclusive hire get the manor including moat for the whole weekend. Have a look www.boxtedhall.com
We had 32 (including us) we had exclusive use of woodhall manor (in Suffolk) and we paid for everyone to stay there overnight (they offer as part of a package) and it was amazing!
