Superb, couldn’t have asked for a better venue

Arniston is a really up and coming wedding venue. The offer of exclusive use of the estate for up to 5 days was a game changer for us as it allowed time for our families to catch up after the pandemic before the wedding itself.

The Orangery is a stunning setting for a ceremony. It’s bright and has great acoustics. We were also given the flexibility to have the ceremony outside or in a marquee.

The estate is immaculate and has plenty of space for families and wedding party to stay (we had 25+ and room left over!).

Kim is a wonderful host and super organized. No request is too small and she really does go out of her way to make sure the day runs smoothly (even to the extent of gathering weather reports so we were fully prepared!).

We had a wonderfully special time at Arniston for our wedding and wish it every success in the future.

Arniston House Wedding Team go above and beyond to make your special day perfect for you!

We had our wedding ceremony and reception in the Orangery at Arniston House.
The day was perfect from start to finish, we cannot praise Kim, Henny and the Arniston team highly enough.
There running of the day was smooth and stress free as was the setup the day before.
Throughout the planning and organising Kim was incredibly helpful and understanding, and responses to our queries were received very promptly.
The team went above and beyond to make our wedding both unique to us and enjoyable for all our guests.
