About The Orangery

Mount Edgcumbe Country Park
Cornwall, PL10 1HZ

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!
Venue Service

By Tom and Hayley Shotton, on 17 Apr 2020Date of Wedding - 10 Aug 2019

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.

Beautiful Bank Holiday wedding
Venue Service

By Philippa Percival, on 01 May 2020Date of Wedding - 04 May 2019

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!

Michelle & the whole team were amazing

We had our wedding at the Orangery last year in August and couldn’t recommend the venue highly enough. Michelle and the whole team were amazing, the food was delicious, the Orangery and the gardens looked stunning and everything ran smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble!

Me and my husband had our wedding there 2 days ago, and it was AMAZING! The food (BBQ) was awesome, the grounds and gardens were spectacular and the staff genuinely couldn't do enough for us, ensuring we and our guests were looked after in every way possible. We have some fantastic photos and memories. Special thanks to Michelle who was the events organiser. She bent over backwards for us, making it seem effortless. So many of our guests commented on how amazing she was and how she kept the whole day together without being at all intrusive. She totally got the kind of day we wanted and made sure it happened. We got so many people saying how they'd never even thought of The Orangery as a wedding venue, but that it was stunning and a brilliant place. Thank you so much!!!

Most Amazing Wedding Reception
Venue Service

By Emma & Philip, on 22 Apr 2020Date of Wedding - 17 Jun 2017

We had the most amazing wedding reception on Saturday and thanks are to the staff especially working in the gorgeous but swelling sunshine and stunning venue itself. From our first meeting to the day we were made to feel relaxed, and that our day would be everything we could imagine - and they certainly delivered above and beyond. The reception was seamless, which allowed for a very happy bride and groom. We will continue to be regular visitors to the Orangery.

They made Hannah & Mark's Wed fest a really special day. The whole day was wonderful from the ceremony up at Mt Edgcumbe house down to the wonderful wedding breakfast & evening at the Orangery. Can't recommend them enough. Beautiful xxx

The most wonderful venue and location
Venue Service

By Ashleigh Round, on 12 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 09 Jul 2016

I had looked just about everywhere in Cheshire but when I stumbled upon The Orangery at Mount Edgcumbe country park I instantly fell in love. We had 80+ guests travel to Cornwall (most of us had a holiday there before) and then it was the wedding day. We couldn't have askedfor a More picturesque location with gardens and looks out over the Plymouth sound. The staff couldn't do enough for us and were exceptional. The food was incredible and such a reasonable cost, especially as it was fresh local produce and tasted amazing. The band were incredible and all of our guests have fallen in love with this place as much as us. Many are already looking to return for holidays. You will not be disappointed. Forever grateful to have chosen this venue

Our wedding reception
Venue Service

By Keren Smith, on 24 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 19 Mar 2016

Our wedding day was made extra special by having our reception at The Orangery. Michelle and her team were amazing. Always flexible, supportive and offering great advice. The food was super, and excellent value. Mostly, I remember Michelle's smiley face, always available, calm and ready for anything that came her way! Our wedding was trouble free and the best day of our lives, so much of that was due to our choice of venue. Many thanks!!!

These guys did everything and more!
Venue Service

By Peter Jones, on 14 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 22 Aug 2014

The Orangery is simply stunning on a warm day like we had and no other venue would have a combination of beautiful maintained grounds on one side and the harbour on the other. The space is open and light and has plenty of room to make it your own. The venue is only half of what you get though. The service and attention to detail from Michelle and her team is second to none and they absolutely nailed it in every way. There were even some small personal touches they managed to add which impressed my hugely. All of this combined with huge value for money makes it a no-brainer. BEST DAY EVER!
