We offer total flexibility for your wedding breakfast. It can be provided by our preferred local caterer Karen Rhodes who offers fabulous contemporary and quirky menus. Alternatively, you can use your own choice of caterer or something a bit different like a hog roast or a food truck!

Cartmel Priory  

The attractions of a wedding in Cartmel include the opportunity to marry in the spectacular Priory situated in the heart of the village. The Reverend Nick Devenish welcomes couples to marry or to receive a blessing in the Priory whatever their beliefs, whether Christened or not and even if they do not regularly attend church. It may also be possible for couples who do not live locally to marry at the Priory. 
Cartmel Old Grammar is a short stroll through the picturesque village from the Priory. Guests can walk to and from the venue in only a few minutes with the bridal party perhaps arriving in style in a horse drawn carriage drawn by Cartmel's famous Black Fresian Shire Horses.

Our wedding
Venue Service

By Matt, on 03 Jun 2020Date of Wedding - 18 Aug 2019

We got married here in 2018 and it was a great venue. We were married at Cartmel Priory and we were an easy five minute stroll away. The rooms we stayed in were stylish, modern and very clean. It was a sunny day and the terrace was lovely, overlooking the gardens and a great view over the racecourse and fells. There was also loads of space for parking, which really helped a lot of our guests. The staff were all friendly and helpful and everything went perfectly on the day. I would happily recommend Cartmel Old Grammar.
