Your guests will be impressed at this venue, 10 miles south of Bath, says Belinda. 'It's like borrowing a friend's country house.' Within the 550-acre estate is an electricity-free church (services are candlelit), set on an island, or you can hold a civil ceremony within the character-packed main house. If you want to make it an overnight occasion, there are also several bedrooms and holiday cottages on hand.
