Blenheim Palace provides a spectacular setting for your wedding.

With facilities for a seated meal, a dance floor, live entertainment, and more, you'll find everything you need for an unforgettable milestone event.

New wedding space for 2024 - The opening of the refurbished Orangery

Elevate your wedding experience further with our newly restored Orangery. In January 2023, we embarked on an innovative conservation endeavor aimed at reinstating the roof of The Orangery to its original robust slate composition and is the first Grade 1 listed building to do something of this kind.

Today, the culmination of our efforts unveils an extraordinary transformation. The Orangery, restored to its former glory, now embraces a captivating bar area and seating arrangement catering to up to 120 guests. This harmonious merger of contemporary chic with timeless charm amplifies the allure of our historic venue, creating the space for your special day.

The experienced wedding specialists at Blenheim Palace would love to bring your vision to life for your special day. Couples can enjoy exclusive access to the venue and its idyllic grounds, with gorgeous photo opportunities. In-house catering can be provided by the esteemed culinary staff, who will work with you to create a delectable menu.

Wish we could do it all again!

We loved the day - it was more then we could ever have expected. I am ever so grateful for the team's hard work. The execution on the day was faultless, I felt like I didn't have to worry about a thing. And the MC well.... he made things happen I just don’t know what we would have done without him, he was fantastic. The food was amazing too everyone commented on how delicious all the courses were. The day was just perfect and everything around it also. They really did do a fantastic job and we were so grateful to have the support and help along the way.

I wanted to thank the team much for everything they did to make the wedding day such a special occasion for us all. We really could not have asked for more - the Orangery looked wonderful (just as the Bride had imagined) and it was great to be able to rely on the professionalism and kindness of all of the Blenheim Palace staff

Just spectacular!

We are still on a huge high and have had so many comments about how spectacular the venue was, how delicious the food was and how pleasant all the staff were. Thank you to the Duke of Marlborough for keeping the Palace, Orangery and grounds open for people like us to celebrate our special days.
