depends on availability and when you want to get married. We booked ours almost 2 years in advance to give us plenty of time to save!

We booked ours 2 years in advance, only becaue I didn't even know if venue would have a wedding! It's an old georgian house that's converted into a B&B. I just wanted to use the grounds and perhaps a marquee or something. So I made an appointment to see them and talk about it when they showed this fab restaurant they had converted from the barns. It wasn't running yet, but it was all laid out, tables & chairs etc. So the thoughts were to hire a carter, but they've opened the restaurant since last year with a top class chef, so it's all fallen into place all by itself! And we ended up booking the date there and then with them 2 years ago!
