wedding venue profile: Poundon House

Welcome to venue week! We’ve dedicated a whole week to providing you with plenty of advice and inspiration when choosing a very important part of your day – your wedding venue. Choosing a wedding venue is about choosing and place and space that reflects you and the kind of wedding day you want. With so many beautiful venues out there it’s often difficult to know where to start – so we’re here to help.

We begin this week with a profile of the beautiful Poundon House

Poundon House wedding venue

As you pass through the gates of Poundon House vibrant lime trees line the elegant avenue with beautifully kept striped front lawns just in view and the stunning period house as impressive from this distance as it is close up. Poundon House is located in tranquil rolling countryside on the border between Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire – just an hour from central London.

The helpful team at Poundon House is on hand as much or as little as you need, making this venue very much about what you want and need to make your day special – they love to say yes! We love that they recognise and appreciate that every single day and wedding couple are unique and go to great lengths to help couples express that uniqueness.

In their words

Poundon House is renowned for its welcoming atmosphere as a wedding venue and has many years experience in hosting private events. We pride ourselves as being the opposite end of the spectrum from a hotel – flexible, creative and personal. This is your wedding day and we work with you to achieve the day that you are dreaming of. We give you the time to settle into Poundon, with full access the day prior to the wedding to dress the property and the option to return for a family lunch the day afterward.
