A Fan of Downton Abbey?

Nina (Caitlin's mom) here....I'm a HUGE fan of the PBS series Downton Abbey.  If you've been living under a rock, the third installment of the series started on Sunday and we Anglophiles couldn't be more pleased. If you haven't seen it, rent the first two seasons via Netflix before starting the third or you'll deprive yourself of some integral background.

If you have a big budget and can travel to England, a wedding at Highclere Castle in Newbury, the setting of Downton Abbey, is possible!! The historic estate is open to the public and available for wedding venue rentals. However, be prepared to fork over more than $24,000 for the venue alone. You can fit about 140 in the interior, but it's also possible to host a tented event on the historic estate's gorgeous grounds. To get the Earl of Grantham (aka Hugh Bonneville) to show up, you're on your own.

Check out this post on The Knot for some lovely photos of the grounds and interiors. To see a great photo shoot by Arielle Doneson Photography and Firefly Events in Style Me Pretty inspired by Downton Abbey click here.
