Dream Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Holly & Ali, on 20 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 30 Sep 2016

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.

Thank You

A huge thank you to you all for making our wedding day back in September so perfect. A special thank you to Diane, Charles and Ashleigh too. Everything went so smoothly from the lead up and up until the day itself and that was down to the fantastic organisation and support provided from you all! Thank you again.

Thank you

Thank you so much for helping us to organise the best wedding day and for making sure everything went smoothly. We had an amazing time and all of our guests have repeatedly told us how much they loved the venue and the cottages. The bridal suite was breathtaking and thank you for the lovely fizz and chocolates which was a nice touch. We'll definitely be back!

We just want to say a huge thank you for everything you did for our wedding back in August. We had a truly amazing day which ran so smoothly. We couldn't have asked for a better team of people to organise our special day.

Combermere Abbey was the perfect choice of venue for our wedding, its glorious walled gardens and beautiful Glasshouse made for a spectacular setting. The courtyard cottages were an extra special addition to our package, especially as they were so luxurious and enjoyed by all of our guests, particularly the breakfast hampers! The whole experience of holding our wedding at Combermere was exceptional. The event co-ordinators were so helpful and made the process of organising the big day so easy. From offering advice, putting us in touch with potential suppliers and always making us feel welcome, they allowed us to visit the venue countless times as part of our preparations and were always on hand to help. On the day, Combermere was amazing (despite the rain!). Everything was spectacular and our photos prove what a superb place it is for a wedding. I don't think there is a venue in the area that would rival the setting for wedding photographs. I don't think anyone would be disappointed if they chose Combermere as their wedding venue, it was absolutely fantastic and I would highly recommend it!

Autumn Wedding
Venue Service

By Kokil & Neil, on 14 Oct 2015

We found this venue online and fell in love instantly. The video on their website depicting the grounds had us swooning even before we got to see them in person. And the grounds were even more gorgeous in person. In addition to just how beautiful the venue is itself, what wowed me and my husband is how organized, friendly and helpful the staff was in planning the day from start to finish. They were always prompt in answering questions and giving advice. They provided plenty of guidance regarding suppliers. They had an event coordinator on the day who ensured that everything ran like clockwork... the list goes on... I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

Thank you!

Autumn wedding at Combermere
Venue Service

By Chris and Hannah, on 02 Sep 2010

We have spent many a happy moment reliving the wonderful events of the wedding. We cannot thank you enough - the outdoor blessing was delightful, the marquee looked fantastic and the caterers were truly amazing. The ability to rent the cottages made the whole event more special. We will visit the abbey to show you the photos and reminisce about a truly spectacular day.
