From country estates to stunning private homes, these venues provide the perfect backdrop for your special day. With stunning gardens and courtyards, you’re sure to have a wedding that will be remembered for years to come. A Manor House Wedding can accommodate both small and large weddings and often these venues offer beautiful, well-maintained gardens all year round and on-site accommodations for your guests to stay and enjoy the celebrations.
Here are a few of my favourites in the south-west.
Brympton, a house noted for its beauty, is believed to have been founded in the 13th century when the land was purchased by the D’Evercy family. Set in 33 acres of stunning parkland with a magnificent lake that perfectly mirrors the South Front this stunning medieval manor house offers gorgeous terraces and Elizabethan grandeur for dining. At Brympton House, you can choose to get married in either the beautiful Castle House within St. Andrews Church or outside on the South Terrace, enjoying views of the lake.
Depending on your chosen wedding style and number of guests, three different spaces are available for the wedding breakfast: the whimsical light-filled Ballroom, the more intimate State Dining Room with its red silk-lined walls, or the grandiose Great Hall.The stables have been transformed into a perfect evening function space with a chill-out room, dance floor area, and bar – the perfect place to party the night away. As the sun goes down, serve your guests a feast on the courtyard or in the firepit as they watch fireworks overhead and roast marshmallows over the fire. It’s an ideal ending to your most special day.
