Couples looking for a seriously stylish wedding location will instantly connect with 13th Century The Manor in Somerset. The owner offers his private; luxurious manor house to select couples who are looking for hip glamour, with Michelin quality dining, sophisticated interiors, a miniature lake and romantic gardens. City dwellers arriving will sweep up the gravel drive and instantly feel at home here in a funky, country house environment with relaxing accommodation. The bride and groom hire The Manor and its private grounds for the whole event so it transforms into a private country house party wedding. Civil ceremonies take place in the ancient, oak-panelled Banquet Hall or Drawing Room. The Banquet Hall also seats up to 60 guests for formal dining or more for something informal. Large open fires and flickering candles set the tone in winter. For couples wanting to marry in church there are two beautiful and utterly romantic churches close by.
In the summer, The Manor's dreamy gardens make it an idyllic setting for a never-to-be-forgotten party of up to 400 guests, with an airy marquee pitched by the lake decorated with chandeliers, Perspex furnishings, white and colour-pop flowers.
With no one around to disturb the wedding for miles, guests can all dance until dawn. Enjoy a firework display.
When it's time for sleep, The Manor offers 11 large, individually styled double rooms and a separate chic thatched barn can also be hired for 10 more guests.
Bose TV music systems, exclusive BVLGARI toiletries, roll-top baths and four poster beds add to the ambiance and keeping in with the house party feel there's an outdoor tennis court, heated pool, games room and pool table to keep the most gregarious guests entertained.
Indulgence is the name of the game and Michelin starred Chef Josh Eggleton creates delectable menus of locally sourced products, like Exmoor venison and Somerset apple Tarte Tatin. The bride and groom discuss menus in advance, choosing particular favourites and The Manor's handpicked list of suppliers ensures the best service.
Before leaving The Manor after a memorable wedding, the newlyweds often like to linger over afternoon tea or drinks with the owner, known as The Knight and reminisce over the day and evening. Many report feeling a real connection with this ancient property and an emotional attachment.
