About The Orangery Suite wedding venue

Full of character and charm, The Orangery Suite is a stunning venue for intimate and personal wedding ceremonies and receptions.

With exclusive use of the beautifully landscaped walled garden, The Orangery is an idyllic setting for a couple's special day.

The recently refurbished room can seat 75 people for the ceremony; we are now also able to offer outdoor wedding ceremonies. After the ceremony, guests can make their way out onto the terrace for a drinks reception whilst the newly married couple have photographs taken in the elegant grounds.

Our stunning pagoda-style marquee can accommodate up to 85 guests for the reception meal and is included in the venue hire price.

For the wedding reception, a wide variety of catering is available, ranging from an informal buffet, barbecue, hog roast or cream tea, to the more traditional wedding breakfast.

Whilst background music is welcome, the tranquil location means that discos are not suitable for The Orangery Suite. However, there is another venue just a short walk away, or others within a few minutes drive that will accommodate your evening function.

Why not make use of our extensive activities within the walled garden, such as croquet, pétanque, crazy golf, beach volleyball, table tennis, giant chess and badminton? For a real games party theme we can also provide outdoor table football, a giant tumble tower and giant connect four.

The historic setting and spacious grounds make The Orangery the perfect venue for a relaxed and stylish day to remember.

Please contact us for prices, availability, and further information about hiring The Orangery Suite and grounds for your wedding.
