Facilities and Capacity
Ceremonies may be held at The Lookout. Couples who choose to tie the knot here can enjoy the breathtaking scenery that dominates this six-acre site. A number of areas are available to host the ‘I-do’ occasion, and each one offers distinctive appeal. In The Orangery, guests can be seated as the happy couple hold hands and swap vows at the head of the room. Alternatively, to-be-weds can make use of the Gardens. Here, a gazebo marks the spot where heartfelt words can be exchanged as two people make a lifelong commitment to one another.

A sparkle of light throughout a tough year.
The first day I met John and Julie was back in summer 2019. I had big ideas to plan a Alice in wonderland themed tea party. Straight away Julie had fantastic ideas of how we could make the venue fit my theme, even though the venue is fantastic as it is. Julie is super warm and friendly and instantly makes you feel at ease. She can also cater for you and from pictures I have seen her food looks delicious. I haven’t had my wedding yet due to covid 19 but have it rebooked for May 21. Throughout this tough year Julie has kept in touch with me with lots of positivity for the new year. I can’t wait to finally have my day at The Lookout! I highly recommend this wedding venue to anyone as I know Julie and John will be there to support you in anyway they can.Sent on 18/12/2020
