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.

Beautiful venue with exceptional service and delicious food.
The Orangery at Mt Edgcumbe was such a dream wedding reception venue. Beautiful, historic orangery, stunning gardens and right by the sea! The Orangery itself is filled with lovely natural light from the huge windows, with gorgeous views of the garden.Sent on 31/03/2021
Michelle was incredibly helpful and flexible admist all the covid madness which meant cutting guestlists and altering plans to make it covid secure at the very last minute.
She is so warm and accomodating and all her team were very professional and friendly. They set up our decorations to my specification and took it all down for us afterwards. The service is brilliant with thoughtful attention to detail, such as all the staff vacating the room during speeches to give privacy.
The food was amazing! Guests said it was the best food they ever had at a wedding and we certainly enjoyed it!
I am so very glad that we chose the Orangery for our wedding reception and whole-heartedly reccommend it.

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
