Your guide to getting married in Andover

Your guide to getting married in Andover

Whether you want to say your vows in a traditional church wedding, a swanky golf club, or somewhere a little different like the Hawk Conservancy Trust, Andover has a fantastic array of wedding venues for you to choose from if you’ve recently got engaged.

If it’s a more rural setting you’re after, why not venture into the beautiful South Downs National Park and tie the knot here at Southdowns Manor? Whether you opt for an indoor or outdoor ceremony, you’ll have the rolling green hills as your tranquil backdrop. Even better, you’ll have the whole venue to yourself, so you and your guests can relax and make the manor your home for the weekend.

Once you’ve booked your venue, you’ll need to go through the legal formalities of giving notice of marriage to Hampshire County Council. With that taken care of, you can begin planning your wedding in earnest.

Planning your Andover wedding

When it comes to putting the finishing touches on your big day, there are plenty of great wedding suppliers in Andover and nearby towns to help you make your dream wedding a reality. From Robin’s Flowers based up the road in Marlborough to Alex Ramsay Photography in neighbouring Tidworth, you’ll find everything you need to make your day perfect.

A weekend away in Andover

People travel long distances to be at weddings, so it’s likely that some of your guests might want to make a weekend of it. Andover is a great base for a weekend minibreak, with lots to do in the local area. Andover Museum and Danebury Hillfort will be popular attractions with history fans, while petrolheads are sure to love a trip to Thruxton Motorsport Centre. Your guests could also head across to Salisbury to visit its famous cathedral, which boasts the country’s tallest spire, or enjoy a potter around beautiful Winchester, which is also home to a celebrated cathedral.
