Weddings at Highclere Castle…or a Wisconsin B&B

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Fans of the incredible PBS series “Downton Abbey” most certainly spent last Sunday evening glued to their TV sets for the season premiere.  At last, the wedding of Matthew and Mary!  And a wedding for Edith on the way.  Did you know you can actually book a wedding at Highclere Castle where the series is filmed?  Well, if that’s not in the (bridge) cards for you, then you’ll be pleased to know that many elegant Wisconsin B&Bs also host weddings.   Or perhaps an elopement is more your style, in the spirit of Lady’s Sybil’s runaway marriage to the chauffeur.  It’s all so thrilling, isn’t it!

More than a walk down the aisle, here comes this Bride down on a garden path, fragrant with flowers. Experienced wedding planners at the Oscar H. Hanson House in Cambridge do the work, so you can treasure every moment.

Weddings at Willow Pond B&B & Events in Weyauwega promise to be nature-inspired. Gardens and water features are the stage for wedding vows, while tents or the festive converted barn shelter the celebration.
