We can鈥檛 recommend enough.
The setting and food were a big hit with our guests. The team were amazing from our first meeting all the way and so professional on the day dealing with absolutely everything - we didn鈥檛 get one question and just made everything so easy all we had to do was enjoy it. They also went above and beyond and we can鈥檛 thank you enough. If I could give you more stars, I would!

Autumn Wedding at The Orangery

We knew that we wanted to get married at The Orangery from the moment we arrived. The grounds are beautiful with lots of different areas to visit, including streams, small waterfalls and a large lake. The ceremony room is beautiful and the skylights are complimented well by the sun.

Staff at the Orangery were brilliant and able to answer all of our questions about wedding fully and were easily contactable through the planning website we were given. The staff did a fantastic job on the day and set up the dinning hall well according to what we wanted. They were attentive the guests needs throughout the day and made it impossible for any moment to go wrong.
It was a perfect day!

Outstanding wedding venue

If you are considering booking The Orangery for your wedding, and you're wondering whether it is worth the money, or whether they will be up to the task, it is a resounding YES from us. We got married there last Saturday and I can honestly say it was the best day of our lives, it was absolutely perfect. The entire team is on hand, on time, clued up, on schedule and every single last member knows exactly what is going on at all times.
I think the secret to the success of the day is that The Orangery鈥檚 team are very organised in the weeks and even months prior to the day. The online Sonas portal is a godsend where you can upload all your suppliers, requirements, times, guest lists, seating plans, everything! The Orangery help you with various deadlines to make sure you鈥檙e on track and uploading things as and when they need to be submitted. It sounds daunting, but it isn鈥檛! The team are always on hand to answer any questions you have in the run up to the event. You can email or send a message via the Sonas portal and you will have a guaranteed answer within 12 hours. You will also get to meet the team a few times before your big day. The initial meeting, the tasting and the final meetings are all there so you can meet face to face and work out any details that worry you.
On the day, it will be clear that The Orangery do weddings to perfection. It is the obvious that the team know their jobs inside out; they鈥檝e done this before. But it also will feel like your wedding is absolutely the most important event in their calendar. It will feel like your wedding is the only wedding. You have the team鈥檚 full attention, and you will feel like they know you and your wishes inside out. As a bride it is so great to be able to get ready in The Wisteria Suite, right next door, so you can peek at the preparations.
In the lead up to the day, we did not hear a single negative comment about The Orangery. After the day, we have only received positive comments from our guests. As a bride and groom, you might be in your little bubble of love on the day, but all our guests were absolutely delighted. From the food to the service, everyone was thrilled. The waiting team looks a million dollars all dressed in black uniform, entering the room together and in sync, serving tables quickly but professionally.
The Orangery is blessed with close to 10 acres of grounds for your guests to explore, a stream, 3 ceremony area options, a spectacular breakfast room and a fantastic terrace. This truly is a special wedding venue. If we could do it all over again we wouldn鈥檛 change a thing.
I could go on and on but there will be nothing left for you to discover. If you鈥檝e read this far then take our word for it, do something for yourselves and book The Orangery for your wedding. You will not regret it.

Amazing venue, incredible team

We booked the Orangery for our wedding back in September. I went for a show round with my mum and sister the year before and fell in love with the grounds and immediately saw our wedding being outside at the Lappa. The Orangery team are incredible and whenever I had questions I would send them an email and receive a response either same day or next working day. We have two meetings with our coordinator running through all the questions we had. Everything on the day went so smoothly and I didn鈥檛 notice any issues if there were any. The food was amazing, I would say that we didn鈥檛 get offered a food tasting in the lead up which worried me slightly as you obviously want your wedding breakfast to be great. The food was incredible, all our guests said it was the best food they had at a wedding. After the ceremony we walked back down the aisle and were greeted by staff with our drink of choice and shortly after a tray of canap茅s for just us. The on the day service was brilliant. We had a dedicated server for our table that checked on us throughout the breakfast. Our on the day coordinator Bex did a handover when she left to the evening staff which we really appreciated. We had the most perfect wedding day.

Incredible Venue and Amazing Team!

We got married at The Orangery in September and I can't express how happy we are that we chose this venue! The team were absolutely incredible from the moment we booked the wedding, all the way up to our big day! A HUGE shout out to Beth, she helped to reassure and organise us with everything we needed before and also on our big day. The venue is absolutely beautiful and the food served is out of this world! We enjoyed our food taster night and also the V.I.P events that the venue hosted throughout the year which really helped to envision everything come to life! Would recommend this wedding venue to anyone!!

Just incredible

The Orangery was the first wedding venue we looked around and didn't need to see another! We instantly fell in love with the venue and the grounds. They are just breathtaking. It's looked after so well and everything is just beautiful. During the planning we had a team and Natalia help us with the organising, it made it so easy and calm. We really enjoyed planning the wedding due to this. On the day of the wedding we didn't need to do anything in terms of organising or helping setup it was all done by the team. We had Natalia there for our day and she helped guide us on the timing of the day and was there if we needed her. The waiters and waitresses served and cleared the food so professionally and the food was delicious! We had so many compliments about the venue, the grounds, the staff and food. I would highly recommend The Orangery anyone. It's good value for money, a lot is included, plus it's the most beautiful venue we viewed.

Magical Venue

The Orangery were so helpful and professional throughout our journey up to and on the day!
So many guests complimented the beauty of the venue as well as the professionalism! So many, including ourselves, we're so impressed with the well-oiled machine that was the food service!
The day-of-coordinators Beth and Chips were so on it and ensured we were happy throughout the day.
We came to the meetings with loads of requests to make our day that little more special and staff at The Orangery absolutely performed!
Thanks for contributing to making our day so special!

Amazing wedding day

Where do I start. The Orangery is an amazing wedding venue. The staff are as professional and kind as the beauty of the venue. The food is also absolutely delicious. We had a wonderful day and many guests said it was the best wedding they鈥檇 been to. It really could not have been any better. Thank you all.

The Best Day Ever

We got married here 27.10.22 and it was something from a dream! The team there took the day step by step and I had to worry about nothing. I loved every moment of it.

Beautiful venue with a wonderful team

We were due to get married here in August 2020 but covid got in the way. We have had to postpone again for the same reason but there is nowhere else we would get married. The venue is stunning with lots of gorgeous options for the ceremony. We were fortunate enough to have our menu tasting just before the first lockdown and it was delicious! The team have also been nothing but helpful, kind, patient and understanding throughout our wedding planning, particularly throughout the various curveballs that covid has thrown at us all. I am sure behind the scenes it has been very stressful for them all, but you wouldn't know it. I would highly recommend this venue and am so excited for when the day finally comes that we can marry here!

The wedding day we dreamed of

Honestly could not recommend the team at the orangery more, my partner and I could not believe how smoothly the day was ran from little things such as setting up our table decorations to running the whole day making sure everything fell into place, the staff went above and beyond for us on the day and we couldn鈥檛 be happier with how the day went!

Absolutely amazing

Everything about this venue is beyond words. The food was perfect and we had so many compliments on how great it was. The staff were fantastic from planning to the day itself. Beth was brilliant at helping to keep everything running smoothly until the evening! I wish I could do this day again and it would without doubt be at this venue if I could

The perfect day!

The Orangery

We got married a month ago today and it was the prefect day made completely seamless by Natalia and her team. The venue was absolutely stunning, the food was amazing and the staff were incredibly helpful. Everyone said how wonderful the day was and that I was the most chilled bride they had ever seen, and that is all thanks to the team at The Orangery!

The Best Experience!

Can鈥檛 possibly summarise just how much we loved our day with the Orangery. As a bride I had absolutely no stress on the day. Beth, Harvey and Ella were amazing pre, during and even post! The team is friendly, communication is amazing and there isn鈥檛 one thing we would have changed. The venue is beautiful and food amazing!
The team also helped us reveal our pregnancy to our guests and were honestly amazing the whole way through!
Prices were fair and we really had the best time.
(Beth was also a dream as a wedding planner!!). I recommend you get married here or at least enquire:)

Just Simply amazing

The day of the wedding ran completely smooth without having to think of a single thing, everything was taken care of, big or small. We can鈥檛 thank Bex enough for just being a real life Angel. Our day was complete because nothing was too much to ask. I wish we could do it all over again, I would choose this venue again and again and again
