The Orangery is a stunning reception venue in the far South East corner of Cornwall also known as “the forgotten corner”. The Orangery itself borders the Ocean city of Plymouth by three sides of water, here you will find a unique haven of peace and tranquillity nestled in 865 acres of land, steeped in history and surrounded by pebbles beaches and coastline.
This breathtaking setting and outstanding venue will provide the perfect canvas for the wedding day of your dreams.
Built in 1775, this 100ft Orangery basks in elegance and beauty with floor to ceiling windows and doors that offer amazing views of the water fountain and Italian gardens.
The Orangery operates as a fully licensed bar and restaurant so all of your catering needs are flawlessly met to ensure you can relax and enjoy your special day.
Our receptions are held on Fridays and Saturdays from 3pm till 11pm, you can add additional hours if required. The hire fee for the Orangery is £2,400 plus vat and then you simply add your food and drink options on top. There are no other charges whatsoever and we have everything you need for your day including your table linens, lighting and wireless sound system so you can create your very own playlists.
The Orangery’s capacity is 200 people and we can seat between 40 to 120 guests for your wedding breakfast (your first meal together as a married couple)
We do not believe in set catering packages so we have designed a menu where our brides and grooms can create their own unique package suitable to their budget. All of our food is homemade, locally sourced and created by our in house chefs. We also carry an extensive range of drinks including local ciders, beers, ales and wines.
All of our food and drink options are priced individually so you can work out the exact cost of your reception on our dedicated website.
The dance floor, band area and DJ are set at the other end of the Orangery, so our venue flawlessly transcends into evening without any interruptions. Your guests can party at one end and relax at the other!
If you need a break from the hustle and bustle, you can escape to the Italian garden and sip Pimms and lemonade in the sunshine, or toast champagne under the stars. The Italian garden is yours for the entire duration and offers some wonderful outdoor heart shaped metal seating for up to 50 guests.
We hope to meet with you soon, and thank you for showing an interest in our venue.

Best wedding venue!
We cannot recommend this place highly enough. Michelle and all the staff were truly wonderful and made the whole booking and organising process so easy. The venue is stunning and the food was phenomenal. Easy access from Plymouth also with the ferry stopping right outside the venue. We cannot thank the orangery enough for making our day so perfect.Sent on 17/04/2020

Beautiful Bank Holiday wedding
My husband and I held our wedding reception at the beautiful Orangery last May. I was particularly drawn to the venue since I wanted somewhere by the sea and was completely bowled over by what was offered in terms of the grounds, gardens, buildings and service we received. Michelle was very professional and helpful meeting with us prior to the big day to plan the finer details of our reception. We opted for the BBQ which was delicious - particularly the array of desserts which accompanied this option! I particularly wanted to say a HUGE thank you to the chef for putting the wedding cake together. I had pre-purchased the cakes and decorations and left it in their capable hands. It looked AMAZING, far better than I ever imagined it would! What we especially loved about the Orangery was the huge floor to ceiling windows which allowed in ample natural light (great for photos) and the gardens. We were delighted to find that the gorgeous purple wisteria was in bloom on the outside of the building and in the amazing relic garden - some of my favourite photos of the whole day. If you want somewhere in a beautiful setting with great service then please don't hesitate to enquire. Thank you Michelle and your team for such a magical day!Sent on 01/05/2020
