Anyone looking for somewhere gorgeous enough to celebrate their Civil Partnership should get a fast train down (well, up) to Suffolk to look over Yaxley Hall, surely the most sumptuous place in the whole United Kingdom to tie the knot. Don’t go thinking it’s a hotel with some funny people lurking in the corner while you go about the business of promising your life away. This is a private residence – that comes with its own butler! – and if you choose to make it the place where it all began, you and yours will be the only ones there whilst the happy couple can even stay, compliments of Yaxley Hall, at one of the Hall’s chic cottages. With centuries of history and parts done out in the Strawberry Hill gothic style, there will be no shortage of backdrops for the photos, while, if the weather permits, you can even hold your ceremony outside in the ‘Gothick’ temple. Add champagne reception with canapés, full wedding breakfast and evening reception and all you’ll need is someone willing to sign on the dotted line. Go to www.yaxleyhall.com for more details and some lovely shots.
