One Venue, Three Stunning Ceremony Options
The Orangery is licensed for both indoor and outdoor civil ceremonies, and you’ll have the choice of three stunning options:
The Gazebo is our outdoor ceremony option, suitable for up to 150 of your friends and family. Nestled within the immaculately landscaped grounds, it provides an unforgettable setting to exchange your vows. There are numerous choices for you and your bridal party to make your entrance, including across the bridal bridge or alongside the lake and waterfall.
The Lapa is our second outdoor ceremony option, suitable for up to 150 guests. Couples choosing The Lapa for their ceremony will be able to make their way through the woodland walk for their grand entrance. Surrounded by trees dating back hundreds of years, The Lapa’s thatched roof is open on all sides to maintain magnificent views across the lake to the boathouse.
The Garden Room is our indoor ceremony option, suitable for up to 150 guests. The elegant Garden Room is an all year round stunning location for your civil ceremony. Five double doors span the front facade, providing guests with a perfect view of the beautiful garden and the bridal party as they make their entrance across the bridge.
Stunning Orangery with Views across the Grounds
Connected to The Garden Room is the magnificent Orangery, which is suitable for up to 170 day and 250 evening guests. With its simple elegance, The Orangery is aesthetically designed to incorporate all the elements required for both comfort and grandeur.

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!Sent on 04/02/2021

To Toni, Bryony, Don and All The Team, Your expertise, kindness and attention to detail has been invaluable in making this special day a complete success. Toni - When I handed everything to you last Thursday I was confident you would organise everything and you exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much.
