Magical Venue

What an incredible venue! From booking our wedding with Lucy, and arranging visits during the ease of lockdown measures, right up to the morning after the big day; Mount Ephraim was the perfect venue for our wedding and Lucy and the team were amazing. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the grounds & house are, as well as the incredible food supplied by Scott Anderson Catering. Lucy made arranging the fine details of our day so easy and stress-free. She really made us feel at home and looked after, in order to have the most perfect day.
Surrounded by our loved ones and friends, our wedding was everything we wanted it to be and more. Our first dance in the reception room by the stairs was a moment we will never forget - surrounded by our loved ones, singing & dancing together. It truly is a wonderful atmosphere in the main house and the gardens during the summer evening was beautiful.
From a very family orientated background, Mount Ephraim and all of its staff feel like (and some are!) one huge family. The bedrooms are beautiful and the bridal party loved their stay on the night of our wedding - even getting a glimpse of the Classic Car Show out on the front lawns the next morning - what a treat! Breakfast in the Tea Rooms was superb and the team were incredible at catering for our guests with allergens and the younger guests (Thank you Sophie & Elliot!).
The venue were so supportive and we were able to have sparklers at the end of the night & our live band fit in perfectly by the dancefloor.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much to all the staff at Mount Ephraim for giving us a magical wedding- we look forward to coming back to visit on our anniversary in the future! - Ellie & Kieran 29th July 2023 Wedding

Wish we could do it all over again

We had our wedding reception at Mount Ephraim in June 2023 and the whole day was perfect.

Us and our guests were welcomed with drinks and canapés on our arrival from the church and were given time to relax and mingle how we wished. Some chose to sit and chat whilst others had a wonder around the grounds, I wanted this feeling of freedom for us and our guests and the gardens were perfect for that. We also used this opportunity to have some photos taken including a group one of all the guests on the stairs at the tennis courts which we will treasure.

Our wedding breakfast was absolutely 5* and everyone commented on how delicious the food was and how attentive the staff were. We were given time and space to say thank you to our guests and do our speeches. Nothing felt rushed or on a strict to d schedule which is something we really wanted.

Some of us stayed the night at the accommodation which was spotless, high spec and felt luxurious which is definitely something you want to feel on your wedding day.

The gardens are stunning and were perfect for wedding photos, the views all around are breathtaking and you get a feel of being somewhere really special. We had so many comments on how lovely our wedding day was and I was so pleased everyone enjoyed themselves. The day was smooth and relaxed exactly as we wanted. Lucy made sure of this, she was so helpful, welcoming and warm and made us feel as if nothing was too much. The perfect person to help you plan your wedding.

I only wish we could do it all over again! Luckily you can go and visit Mount Ephraim gardens to reminisce which is a bonus!

The wedding of our dreams!

There really are no words to describe how perfect our wedding at Mount Ephraim was - it was an absolute dream and so much more than we could ever have expected.

From start to finish, Lucy was fantastic! Always quick to respond to emails and made us feel so welcome! We arrived at Mount Ephraim on Friday with 22 of our guests joining us for extended celebrations. We booked out both the garden wing and B&B the night before & the night of the wedding and this really was the best decision. Not only is the venue beautiful but the accommodation and all of the facilities are just perfect!

The wedding day was amazing! Everyone commented on how beautiful the venue was and how smoothly the day had run!

We would 100% recommend Mount Ephraim to anyone looking for a stunning venue with both a grand house and beautiful gardens! The pictures are too die for at this venue.

We cannot thank Lucy and her team enough for helping us with our perfect day and we can honestly say.. if we could do it all again, we wouldn't change a single thing!

Perfection

Lucy and her team at Mount Ephraim were exemplary. They were so friendly and made us feel as ease straightaway. The venue is magical and quite different from anything else we saw. It’s was so wonderful to have the whole house to ourselves and accommodate all the live music we wished for. The day felt effortless but I’m sure Lucy coordinated this behind the scenes. We have no regrets about booking this venue and we could not have hoped for a better wedding experience, they made our day so incredibly special.

The most perfect day!!!

Our wedding day at Mount Ephraim was absolutely perfect from start to finish and exactly what we dreamt of! Lucy and the team were fantastic - so friendly and accommodating, throughout the planning stages and on the day itself. The entire day ran perfectly, they made us feel completely relaxed and allowed us to enjoy every second. Their caterers (Scott Anderson) are superb, so many compliments on the food. The house and gardens are stunning and the whole team really made our day so magical. Our weekend stay in the B&B and Garden Wing also helped us to spend special time with our friends and family in this beautiful setting. I would absolutely recommend Mount Ephraim Gardens to everyone!

Perfect Venue

We got married at Mount Ephraim in July 23, and it was truly everything we could have hoped for - and more!
Mount Ephraim is a really special place, and Lucy guided us through the whole process of booking our big day seamlessly. The venue itself is beautiful, with plenty of accommodation and set up options.
We used the caterers that came with the venue - who again we couldn’t fault and even a couple of the recommended suppliers who were also brilliant.

Honestly couldn’t recommend a more special place to host a wedding. Thank you to Lucy & everyone at Mount Ephraim - we have the best memories of our day.

Amazing venue & staff!

I do not have enough good things to say about Ephraim as a venue and Lucy as our wedding coordinator. The grounds and interiors were stunning, and it was really special having the whole wedding party staying with us before and after the big day. The B&B catering was also very warmly received by all our guests. From start to finish, Lucy made us feel like everything was under control, expertly managing logistics while still maintaining a personal touch and a warm smile. The whole team at Ephraim were warm and enthusiastic, and genuinely made it feel like our own stately home for the weekend.

Perfect wedding!

We had our wedding here in May 2023 and it was amazing! It was everything we could have asked. Lucy was brilliant! We only had a small wedding but nothing was a problem for Lucy. She gave us ideas of what to do and was always there when we had any questions. The venue is BEAUTIFUL! We got married inside as I HAD TO walk down that beautiful staircase! It really made me feel like a princess! The pictures that was taken in the gardens are beautiful and there is nothing I would change. Thank you!

Mouth Ephraim was beyond perfect

Our wedding at Mount Ephraim was beyond perfect. We fell in love with the venue from the first time we visited and knew straight away it was exactly what we wanted. From the gardens to the ceremony areas and the guest rooms to the breath-taking staircase, it is a fairy-tale venue.

Everything about our day was managed by the team seamlessly, especially Vicky. She worked tirelessly to ensure that our day was perfect and was always on hand for help and advice.

The recommended caterer Scott Anderson provided the most stunning and delicious afternoon tea I have ever experienced - exactly what we requested!

We cannot recommend Mount Ephraim enough and look forward to returning to reminisce in the years to come.

Way beyond our expectations

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for letting us have our wedding at your incredible venue. Everything went way beyond our expectations and every single member of the staff was amazing with us and our guests.
We thought the gardens were absolutely gorgeous – very much delighted our photographer Liam who was like a kid at Christmas – and really, we couldn’t have dreamed of a better setting.

We could not have asked for a better venue!

We couldn’t have asked for a better venue to have our wedding. Lucy looked after us from start to finish and let us do whatever we wanted to do, she was extremely flexible and it meant we could have the wedding that we had dreamt of. The gardens are beautiful and we pretty much has them to ourselves barring a few visitors who looked on and congratulated us as we had our photos. Also the exclusivity of the house is amazing. I don’t think I have seen anywhere where you get the house for pretty much the whole weekend rather than weddings being squashed back to back like other venues. It was a brilliant experience and I would recommend Mount Ephraim to anyone. If only we could do it all over again!
