Does anyone know any wedding venues that allow us to have our own catering/decorations etc in the Leicester/ Leicestershire area
Hi I don't live in your area but you could look on line for whats available :)
I haven't found one yet most seem to have very limited info online just be a case of viewing your favourites and asking in person I reckon
Have you looked for B&Bs or fancy pubs? Often they are in beautiful countryside settings and in my experience looking around, they tend to be good value and open to putting your own stamp on the day!
Try function rooms at golf clubs and football clubs. Having mine at a golf club but using their caterer
I think the best way around this is to have your ceremony at an approved venue like The Guildhall and then find a separate venue for your reception that will allow you to do your own catering.
Foxton Village hall allows this. You can decorate, cater and bring your own drinks if you would like. :-) I've also DJ'd for a wedding there if you are looking for entertainment. DJ Pavey
Give Normanton Country Park (its near Thurlaston) a try you can find them online
