For a setting of history, romance and natural beauty, this wedding venue in Cheshire is just the place. The gardens and surrounding parkland make Combermere Abbey a true hidden gem.

Combermere Abbey is delighted to announce a breathtaking transformation for 2022. With the Glasshouse and Pavilion being renovated, in-house catering providing the very best food and drink, and exciting new spaces such as Keeper’s Cottage and the Garden Kitchen, there is plenty more for you to fall in love with at Combermere Abbey.

On the morning of your wedding, Keeper’s Cottage is the ideal spot to get ready and spend time with your loved ones before exchanging your vows. Put the finishing touches to your look before entering the picturesque walled garden, just a few steps away.

The characterful Glasshouse sits at the apex of the stunning walled garden, providing an unforgettable and unique setting in which to hold your ceremony. Surrounded by a fruit tree maze, you can tie the knot in this wonderful light-filled space with your guests all around you.

The maze itself is perfect for an al fresco ceremony with views of the idyllic gardens all around. Those who would prefer a religious ceremony will be pleased to know that there are picturesque churches just a short drive from Combermere Abbey.

After your ceremony, the Glasshouse and maze are the perfect place to hold your drinks reception.

A few steps away from the Glasshouse, the Pavilion is sat within its own beautiful and private garden and offers the perfect space for your wedding breakfast and evening reception. This stylish and contemporary space boasts a neutral décor, an al fresco terrace for relaxing and a large dancefloor set under a twinkling starlit ceiling. Couples can really make this place their own by adding decorations and flowers to create a personalised style.

After the festivities have drawn to a close, the North Wing Honeymoon Suite, set within the historic abbey, provides a luxurious and suitably grand setting to relax and let the events of the day sink in. With a private entrance, butler service and views over the mere...you might never want to leave!

There is plenty of accommodation for your guests too, with space for up to 49 in the picturesque Courtyard Cottages. Boasting comfort and style, they can be booked for the night of your wedding.

    An incredible venue

    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.

    Everything went perfectly

    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.

    Every little thing was thought of

    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

    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

    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

    Amazing!

    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.

    Dream Wedding Venue

    This place was literally my dream wedding venue, it is a magical place and a complete fairytale. I’m sad that I don’t have an excuse to keep popping in although I’m sure we’ll be back to stay in the beautiful cottages and I might have to pretend I’m getting married again and sneak to the wedding open days. I want to say a HUGE thank you to all the staff here for their help in making our day perfect. We didn’t have to worry about a thing. A special thank you to Rachel who was there with me every step of the way with my million questions.
