Even better than we could have wished for
We held our wedding at Owlpen Manor on 29 August 2021 and we couldn’t have wished for a more beautiful venue or more fantastic people to help us plan our special day.
Owlpen feels like your own private slice of idyllic countryside, where you are able to create your wedding day exactly as you want it. We loved having the whole venue for two nights and having close friends and family staying on the estate in cottages meant we had time to really enjoy the whole weekend, setting the wedding up the day before and spending time with everyone who had travelled to be there with us.
Hugo, Bella and Theo were fantastic. They helped us to put together a weekend and wedding day which was even better than we could have imagined. They were so helpful in the run up, making sure what they could accommodate our plans, which we had total free rein on. On the day Bella and Theo went above and beyond to make our day special, with Bella even becoming chauffeur for the bridal party at the last minute! And Theo making sure the reception and party went without a hitch and that everyone felt free to let their hair down.. which they did! We had many compliments on the food, by Raoul from Well Seasoned Caterers, which was delicious and putting the menu together was a thoroughly enjoyable part of the wedding planning.
The formal gardens behind the house were a beautiful setting for reception drinks and the newly built Pole Barn was perfect for the wedding breakfast. The Cyder Barn was ideal for the party part of the night, with an expertly run bar in the barn which meant you didn’t have to leave the dance floor, and many people didn’t!
We couldn’t recommend Owlpen Manor enough, we can’t wait to go back and celebrate our anniversaries in this special place. Thanks to all of the team who helped us create such a memorable weekend.Sent on 09/09/2021

a Wedding Photographer's perspective...
A truly stunning place to photograph a wedding. I've been shooting weddings at Owlpen Manor for a number of year's now and and never tire of it's beauty, both inside (the house, Cyder Barn and wonderful new Pole Barn...) and out. There are so many 'wow' shot locations to choose from (my favourite is in front of the Grist Mill with the lake reflections which looks like a Constable painting!) and they're all within a couple of hundred yards or so which is great when timings are tight.
If you are looking for something 'quintessentially Cotswold's' with gorgeous photography locations then Owlpen Manor, with it's wonderful new Pole Barn and brilliant team, is up there with the very best wedding venues in the country.Sent on 17/08/2021

Email I sent following our wedding weekend
The email I sent to the Owlpen team following our wedding:
''First of all an enormous thankyou for the weekend just passed, self induced stress aside, it was one of the best weekends I’ve ever had and a large chunk of that was down to you guys as a team. We had many, many comments about how fantastic the venue was and that the cyder barn looked amazing as well! Furthermore even to the last minute you guys were so incredibly helpful and supportive and we are both incredibly grateful.''Sent on 06/09/2021
