The heart of England county of Worcestershire has it all. There’s beautiful countryside, a vast network of rivers and canals and the imposing Malvern Hills. There’s the historic city of Worcester and a number of quaint, waterside towns including Pershore, Bewdley and Stourport-on-Severn, all of which contribute to the varied make-up of this wonderful county. Worcestershire really is the perfect place for Birtsmorton Court to be based.
Holding your wedding at a Worcestershire wedding venue, means that you have great access to transport links, local accommodation, wonderful views and ample fresh air. You only have to look to the back of the Birtsmorton Court estate to see all of the natural beauty Worcestershire has to offer. There’s a completely uninterrupted view over the rolling Malvern Hills, which touch the edge of the estate. This beautiful backdrop is the perfect place to watch the sun set on your wedding day. The Malvern Hills are known for their spring water and the Worcestershire Beacon, which is the highest point, stands at 425 metres, so there’s a really great view from the top.
The lively town of Upton upon Severn is just five miles from Birtsmorton Court and is a delightful place to spend some time enjoying the independent shops and pubs along the river. Travel for a couple of miles more and you will come to Malvern itself. This picturesque town, set on the side of the hills, has a lot to offer. Authors C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien have both gained much inspiration from the area. In fact, it’s largely believed that Worcestershire strongly influenced The Shire, the fictional area of Middle Earth in The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. These authors are not the only notable figures to have been bewitched by the Worcestershire countryside. English composer Edward Elgar also spent many years in this region and composed some of his most recognisable work here.
These days, choosing a wedding venue in Worcestershire means you will also have a great selection of talented wedding suppliers to choose from, who still take their inspiration from the stunning countryside and natural beauty of their surroundings.
