5 Ways to Get Inspired for Your Summer 2022 Wedding

Written 18th August 2021

With weddings now back in full swing after a tumultuous year with Covid restrictions, we’re looking ahead already to the preparations for our summer weddings for 2022.


Whether it’s the first date you’ve booked or your postponed date, we understand the excitement of being able to wed in front of your family and friends.


Here are our top 5 ways to get inspired for your summer 2022 wedding:

It’s Never Too Early to Start Planning

With just a year to go until your big day, now is the time to start putting together your ideas and plans for organising your dream wedding.


We have a variety of options including decorations, music, and food, and would be only too happy to meet with you to discuss your ideas and help make your vision a reality.


We have a generalised guide for timings and room layouts but can adapt these to suit your plans.

Host Your Summer 2022 Wedding Under One Roof

Our newly refurbished rooms make for the perfect stopover for your guests. We have different room options available so your family and friends can make the most of your wedding and enjoy a night away. This means there’s no pressure to leave the dancefloor early, and they can join you in toasting your nuptials. 


From the ceremony to the morning after breakfast, we can help make your wedding weekend truly magical.

Flowers, Gardens and Topiaries

We can help you plan everything – even down to your florist – but why stop at floral arrangements? Our stunning grounds make the idyllic backdrop for sharing your wedding vows. 


We’re licensed to host your ceremony for up to 110 people, and if the weather permits, taking your marriage outdoors is a beautiful way to seal the deal. Our topiary garden offers a quirky, beautiful setting to lead your guests through to witness your wedding.


Your photos on our sweeping lawns and floral gardens, with the hotel standing proudly behind you, will cement the feeling of being Lords and Ladies of the manor for the day.

Get Swept Up in the History

Period dramas saw a small rise in the demand for historical touches at weddings, but with season 2 of Bridgerton set to air on our screens soon, we’re expecting period features to storm the 2022 wedding season.


Here at Billesley, we’ve got you covered; the manor was a regular haunt of Shakespeare, who penned some of his most famous lines between our walls. It’s said that he himself was married on the grounds of Billesley Manor. 


So, we can help you celebrate your own (less tragic) Romeo and Juliet style romance. We even have love letters adorning the walls in one of our rooms – we can arrange for your photographer to capture images of you in this room after your vows for an extra special touch.

Unwind in the Spa

Whether you’re looking for a pre-wedding spa break, wedding preparation treatments, hair and makeup on the day or all of the above, the spa here at Billesley Manor offers many different treatments and packages to suit your needs.


Wedding planning can be stressful, although we do our best to help alleviate the pressure and ensure things run smoothly for you, but why not book yourself a massage to ease the tension and help you feel calm ready for your big day?


You can also book treatments prior to the ceremony, where our team will help you and the wedding party look and feel your best.
