Check out why Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa in Bedfordshire is our venue of the week: Image 1 The numerous backdrops include the Rock Garden, Flower Garden, waterfall, fountain, weir and even a silver birch wood.

This venue's spectacular, which is perhaps why it has cast its spell on everyone from Queen Elizabeth II to Hollywood film directors. The Grade I listed mansion house is an impressive looking property, which offers the luxury of a five-star hotel and the surroundings of a stately home. It's history, marble interiors and beautiful period rooms are enough to make any bride feel like a princess on her wedding day.

With 12 luxury wedding suites licensed for civil ceremonies, as well as a former Russian orthodox chapel, the house offers a variety ofbeautiful settings. Many couples love the grand staircase designed by architects Mewes & Davis, who also worked on the Ritz Hotel. Each ceremony space is beautiful – the Faberge has capacity for 120 guests and is located on the lower ground floor. It's named after the famouscollection of Faberge eggs once housed at Luton Hoo. The Churchill room (40 people) boasts stunning views over the front lawn and got its name because of Winston Churchill. On 26th June, 1948, more than 110,000 people were addressed by Churchill in the grounds, thanking them for their support during the war. Next, we have the Sitting Room, which has access to the terrace and views over the formal gardens and lake – one of the most popular ceremony rooms. Lastly, the Library has access to the terrace and offers views over the formal gardens and the front lawn, and houses the venue's original books and fireplace. Each of these spaces can be used for the reception with the addition of the Romanov and the Grinling Gibbons.

The Romanov (160 people) is undoubtedly the most impressive room in the mansion house. Once the chapel of the house, this suite boasts original stain-glass windows and ornate ceilings. Grinling Gibbons (80) is a beautiful room located next to the Wernher Restaurant with breathtaking views over the back lawns to the lake and has ornate wood carvings, which add character to the room.

The venue has a variety of added extras in the wedding package, including complimentary menu tasting for two with wine and a suite on the wedding night.
