An incredible venue
Venue Service

By Paul Hurst, on 01 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 18 Apr 2019

We were married at Combermere Abbey in April of this year, and from the minute we first stepped in the venue, we knew that it was everything we wanted for our wedding day. It is a beautiful venue, with a true English country garden feel. A little off the beaten track, but close enough to everything you need to plan a perfect wedding day. The courtyard cottages are absolutely ideal for having guests stay on site - great accommodation, and excellent value considering the quality. Diane, Ashleigh and the rest of the wedding team were absolutely amazing, and went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly. The accommodation team - both at the cottages and in the North Wing - made sure our guests had everything they needed throughout the stay. The estate team work so hard all year round to keep the gardens looking immaculate. We also have to give a special mention to Sarah and her family, who have put so much time, love and money into the Abbey and the whole estate, to create a true gem of the English countryside. Whether you're looking to plan your wedding, or just somewhere to stay for the weekend, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Combermere Abbey.

It was the most perfect day!

Son and daughter in law's wedding. Beautiful setting for a wedding. Everything went perfectly. The cottages are so homely and comfortable. The glass house and pavilion so unique for the ceremony and reception. I would love to come back for a long weekend. I have nothing negative to say. Combermere surpasses all expectation.

Amazing and perfect!

Such a beautiful venue and fantastic staff from the very first enquiry to the end of the wedding day. Every little thing was thought of and felt like all the staff had a genuine interest in our day. This is high praise as I am an event coordinator myself so expectations were high but Combermere surpassed them! An unforgettable wedding and memories to last a life time. Huge thanks from Mr & Mrs Senior xox

The team were so helpful
Venue Service

By Amy, on 16 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Sep 2017

We got married here on 1st September and cannot speak highly enough of the venue and staff. From day 1 the team were so helpful, very prompt in answering queries and seemed as though nothing was too much trouble. The venue is a real gem, it has so much character and is beautifully maintained. We came across it by chance but couldn't have found a more perfect place - our whole wedding party stayed for 2 nights in the cottages and had a fantastic time! Thanks Combermere!

We had the most amazing day

By Emily, on 16 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2017

We got married at Combermere on the 26/08/17 and we honestly couldn't recommend the venue and all the lovely staff enough. From all the help with preparations, to the support throughout the day it was fantastic and we had the most amazing day. Special mentions to Bev, Rachel, Ashleigh and of course Stefan who went out of their way to make sure everything was stress free and perfect! Emily X

Thank you a million times over!

By Laura, on 16 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Aug 2017

We got married on Sunday 6th August and booked all the facilities including the glasshouse, pavilion, stone lodge, the north wing and the cottages for two nights. From start to finish everything was coordinated and organised to perfection. We had a great welcome with breakfast hampers and wine for ourselves and all the guests, the staff were on hand the entire day to guide us from our arrival to the day and then upon leaving. The guests absolutely loved having partying to the early hours of the morning at the cottages both before and after the wedding whilst taking lovely bike rides through the grounds before the ceremony began. The venue speaks for itself absolutely gorgeous! Stunning! We can honestly say we had the best day of our lives and in no small part thanks to everyone at Combermere. They were worth every penny and then some.

Thank You

We had the most amazing and special wedding day at Combermere. We wouldn't have changed a think. Thank you for giving us a lifetime of wonderful memories of our wedding day. Diane was fantastic through the whole process. She was calm and reassuring and nothing was too much trouble. She gave many useful suggestions in the run up and on the day was brilliant, professional and unobtrusive. Thank you.
