About Orchardleigh House & Estate wedding venue

The South West’s ultimate fairytale Wedding Venue!

Nestled at the heart of 500 acres of private parkland, Orchardleigh House is situated on a family owned estate near Bath. This elegant stately home provides the ultimate fairytale setting for your wedding day, surrounded by a breathtaking countryside landscape, beautiful gardens, a Croquet lawn and an 18 hole Golf Course; and offers luxurious accommodation for up to 85 guests.

The enchanting array of backdrops make Orchardleigh the perfect spot throughout the seasons, with stunning gardens for basking in the Summer sunshine and cosy open fires in Winter.

Exclusively yours and offering the grandeur of a traditional 19th Century Stately Home; from the elegant Ballroom that can hold up to 162 guests, to the cosy Morning Room, the impressive full sized Billiard room and the regal surroundings of the Great Hall, Orchardleigh welcomes you to use the spaces however you wish to create your perfect wedding day.

Orchardleigh House is fully licensed to hold civil ceremonies both inside and out, with the addition of two brand new outdoor ceremony spaces in 2019. If you’re planning a more traditional service, there are two beautiful churches within the estate. Neither church requires you to be from the local parish to use the facility, so it is open to all. St. Mary’s Church is ideally located on its own private island. As there is no electricity supplied to the church's remote location, all wedding ceremonies are conducted purely by candlelight for a magical, romantic setting.

There is plenty of accommodation for your guests to stay, with 41 opulent rooms in the main House sleeping up to 85 guests.

Orchardleigh offers its very own fleet of Wedding Transportation for hire on your Big Day, ranging from a Bentley Continental GTC to the Bell Longranger Helicopter and provide dedicated team of wedding coordinators who will be on hand to help throughout the planning process and on your Big Day.

Additional details:

You will enjoy complete exclusivity at Orchardleigh House.
Our aim is to allow guests to experience the enjoyment of the House as if it were their own.
Orchardleigh couples are also exclusively offered a two-night luxury Minimoon package. The package includes two nights static charter on a 60’ Sunseeker Super Yacht in Weymouth’s stunning marina or on a second super yacht moored in beautiful Cannes.
