Situated in Tetbury, Gloucestershire, Westonbirt House is a magnificent wedding venue set in 210 acres of glorious parkland, formal gardens, and terraced lawns. Originally built in 1665, this Grade I listed building boasts captivating architecture and ornate rooms that bestow it with impressive historic grandeur. Beginning its life as a humble 17th century home, this Victorian-style manor has evolved into a beautiful 19th-century venue that brings a timeless elegance to every wedding event. Newlyweds-to-be are invited to celebrate their milestone moment in a magnificent setting that is destined to leave lasting memories.

To-be-weds can enjoy exclusive use of Westonbirt House and its incredible grounds for the entirety of their celebrations. For outdoor weddings, the heritage Italianate Gardens provide an enchanting setting for receptions and photography sessions.

Getting married at Westonbirt was a dream for us. Upon viewing the venue and walking around the numerous stunning rooms and grounds, we knew we didn't need to look any further. The team at Westonbirt were organised, helpful and kind which made planning our day a lot less stressful. Our guests described the day as showstopping in such a beautiful and unique venue. The food was outstanding and we felt really looked after. Highly recommend!

Breathtaking house, incredible food and great flexibility to tailor your wedding

We got married at Westonbirt house in October 2023 and had a brilliant day! The team were amazing throughout the whole planning, very accommodating and flexible and no request was too much. On the wedding day the food was incredible. This was really important to us and our guests and Westonbirt did not disappoint! The house and the grounds are beautiful and unique and we were able to make the venue our own with personal touches and tailor the day and set up of the rooms exactly how we wanted. The staff worked tirelessly to ensure everything ran smoothly. I’m so glad we picked Westonbirt for our wedding and wish we could do it all over again.

The perfect venue and the best team!

Thank you so much to David, Camilla and the whole Westonbirt Events Team for the most magical wedding day! David and Camilla, we cannot thank you enough for your support, your kindness and friendship throughout the whole process. From the moment we stepped into Westonbirt School we knew we'd found our dream venue and you both have been more than amazing from the very beginning. Thank you for going above and beyond in bringing our vision into reality. We can’t wait to come back and visit soon and relive our wedding day!

Incredible venue and staff

We had an amazing experience planning our ceremony and wedding breakfast with David and Camilla. They were so hands-on during the entire process leading up to our big day and we were blown away by how smoothly our big day went! Even with a last minute rain shower! I’m American and not only were all the American guests stunned by our venue but the British guests as well. Not only is the school beautiful and atmospheric (inside and in the grounds) but the food, service and organization is impossible to top. It was an absolute perfect day.

Amazing Venue

There is so much to say about this incredible venue…stunning building with equally stunning grounds. We held our wedding at Westonbirt house in July 2021 after rescheduling from our original 2020 date due to the pandemic.

David and Sue at Westonbirt are so incredibly helpful, accommodating and friendly which always helps with the stress of wedding planning. They both ensured our day went exactly how we wanted and as smooth as possible.

We love Westonbirt so much that we needed to go back and visit again shortly after the wedding and,as always, David and Sue welcomed us back so open heartedly.

Stunning location, beautiful scenary, catering and service excellent.

A wonderful truely memorable day for all the right reasons. The Grade 1 listed building with breathtaking architeture made for a stunning backdrop for our special day. We had a choice of a civil ceremony in the library or to take our vows in the church within the grounds. You can even hire a creche facility for the younger guests. Catering excellent with good menu choice. Highly recommended and superb value.
