    A magical setting, the best day ever!

    A magical setting, steeped in history made it the best day ever! The Abbey Chapel made it extra special for us & then having the courtyard & grounds to ourselves to celebrate with all of our friends & family was perfect. We rented the cottage in the abbey grounds which was ideal, as the bride I could walk to the Abbey on the day. The grounds are a perfect setting for fabulous photos & just being in the one place for the whole event was great. All of the arrangements leading up to & on the day were handled brilliantly by Chelsea & her team.

    Absolutely Perfect

    Our wedding day at Newstead Abbey was perfect from beginning to end, with staff doing everything to make sure our guests and us had everything we needed, the venue is just the most perfect setting and we knew from when we got engaged this was where we was going to get married. I fell in love with the grounds and the ceremony room the first time we visited and knew it was 100% yes!!!

    Breathtaking

    Newstead Abbey will always be a special place to us – it’s medieval monastic architecture and grounds makes for some breath taking backdrops for wedding photos, and we’ll certainly treasure ours forever. Our wedding day was everything we could have hoped for. The team really went the extra mile to make it a day to remember and we have some incredibly happy memories that will be with us always. Thank you so much!

    Perfect Wedding

    I don't know what to say other than thank you! Our wedding was perfect, it couldn't have gone any better. I know there would have been lots of work behind the scenes so could you please thank everyone involved on our behalf.
    I only wish I could do it all again, it went too fast.

    Brilliant

    We chose Newstead Abbey as our wedding venue as living locally, we consider it our favourite place to visit for walks, picnics, it’s tranquillity and the beauty of the house and gardens.
    The Orangery has a real wow factor and was perfect for our wedding ceremony, with guests entering through the historic cloisters.
    Reception drinks in the Garden room and a confetti shower in the adjoining garden before photographs in the Spanish garden and the many superb locations around the house.
    We held the Wedding Breakfast in the West Front Suite which was ideal for our number of guests, with evening entertainment in the Courtyard.
    The Newstead Abbey staff were brilliant having helped us with the initial planning, itinerary, seating and decoration then they ensured the whole day went to plan.
    To complete our celebrations we took our guests on an organised tour of the house which was thoroughly enjoyed as the staff were so knowledgeable and passionate about the history, particularly relating to Lord Byron’s association.
    We escaped for a quiet wedding night to the serene Garden Cottage.

    Couldnt wish for more

    Our wedding day was fantastic. Newstead Abbey was the right decision, it’s such a breath-taking venue and our photographs are truly wonderful. The staff were brilliant on the run up to our wedding and on the day itself. Everything ran so smoothly and we couldn’t have wished for a more perfect day.

    Cannot be more grateful

    We couldn't have chosen a better venue for our wedding. Every last detail was catered for by the wonderful team and it couldn't have gone more smoothly. We were given tours of Newstead before we chose, and we had the option to go back as many times as we liked and view the rooms before the big day. Chelsea and Steve were fantastic and didn't spare any detail on making sure it was perfect for us.

    All of our guests were blown away with how beautiful the Abbey was. The orangery was stunning and we decorated the West Front Suite exactly how we wanted it, to be given the final details the morning of the wedding. When we got married there in June, the gardens were in full bloom and maintained to the highest levels, making for an unbelievable set of photos. We ran through the details for the day about a week before, and there were staff on site all day to keep everything in order. On the day, the team were fantastic and it ran so smoothly. Thank you so much for looking after us - it was a day we will never forget and we cannot be more grateful.

    Fantastic venue for a beautiful wedding.

    We had our wedding here in May 2005 in the Orangery and I can't imagine a better settting. Although they have up to 7 weddings here each day we were not rushed or told we had only a set amount of time. The gardens were reserved for our guests after the ceremony and I didn't see any other wedding parties so it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves!
    Beautiful gardens and building and fantastic staff who made the planning really easy. I would highly recommend Newstead Abbey for your wedding.

    A fantastic place to get married

    We got married in the Orangery, which is a lovely room which is for Civil Ceremonies. Pros - fantastic grounds for photos - make sure your photographer takes you round all the grounds, not just the lawn outside the Orangery. Cons - only 20 minutes per ceremony, and on our day, there was a wedding in the chapel next door and we could hear their organ!
