About

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.
    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.

    The Orangery's reply:

    Hey Hannah, awww thank you so much for your lovely review. Much much appreciated.
    It was an absolute pleasure to host your amazing day and we are so pleased you and your guests loved it. Such a special day. Thank you so much for choosing us as your venue. What a pleasure! Thank you! Lots of Orangery love from us all 🍊❤️

    Beautiful venue and service was sometimes very good, but in other cases could be improved

    The Orangery is a beautiful venue by the sea and has beautiful gardens. The quality of food is very good, particularly for so many people. Michelle is a good host and knows how to make you feel special on your wedding day. She also responded quickly to my queries prior to the wedding.

    However, the staff who took over once Michelle had finished her shift were not very friendly. Furthermore, we sent over some separate music for the wedding breakfast and for the evening reception. However, the breakfast music was played at the evening reception. When some of the guests asked to change the songs they were told we only have one hour left at the venue. In the end the music was changed though to songs we preferred.

    It would also be nice if the Orangery could offer more than a choice of 2 types of desserts, though the desserts we chose were lovely. It was also a shame that none of the wedding cake had been left, or remains put in a takeaway box, as had been requested.

    Overall, we had a lovely wedding breakfast and party here and it was a very memorable and special evening, in a beautiful 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.

    The Orangery's reply:

    Awww thank you so much guys!

    Absolute pleasure hosting for you! Thank you for sharing your amazing day with us.

    Hopefully see you both soon.

    Lots of Orangery love ????

    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!

    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!

    Amazing!

    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

    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.

    The most wonderful venue and location

    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

    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!

    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!
