    Hi

    I am looking to get married on Friday 28th October 2011, but no matter how much I look I cannot seem to find a good enough venue. I am looking for something that includes the ceremony, wedding breakfast and buffet for about 90 people (78 adults + 12 kids) for £2500 max.

    Can anybody suggest anywhere that would fit my budget. Am looking in Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire or Warwickshire.

    Many thanks :)

    Have you tried any of the hotel offers like Village etc. They do the whole wedding for £1,000 for 50 odd guests??

    Hey

    I actually live near blaby and I think I know where you are on about. I have read some pretty bad reviews online about them (although a few good in there too) so I am giving them the benefit of the doubt and I'm going to see them on Friday with my h2b.

    Keep an eye on group... on Some fab deals on there and if you can broaden they area make sure you check every day for Leics, Cov, Notts and Derby. Most of the ones that they advertise have been for less than 2k but sometimes there are only a few so get in quick

    There is a place in Tamworth called the castle hotel just up from Tamworth castle that is nice for photos and I think the venue is £999 and that includes drinks cake and sit down meal with eve buffet too. Its called the castle hotel. I think there are a few girls on here getting married there. If you didn't want to get married there you can get married in the castle I think then use that as the evening reception.

    We live in Derby and are using the M1ck3ov3r c0urt H0t3l which we can highly recommend it is a classic case of don't judge a book by its cover. If you are in Nottingham Katie you could look at 5wancar farm or even the university I think its Trent that hire out their venues.
