Sunday is the new Saturday

 £9,000 Exclusive Wedding package  at Combermere Abbey

Saturday is the most popular day to marry* but this wasn’t always the case. Sunday used to be the day, as it was the only day on which many folk were not obliged to work. Couples would literally get married wearing their ‘Sunday best’. How times have changed…modern life offers so much more flexibility, as do our wardrobes.

Combermere Abbey is excited to introduce Sundays to their Exclusive wedding package, which was previously available Monday to Thursday. Extremely well priced at just £9,000, the package enables couples to marry in one of Cheshire’s historic landmarks and like each wedding here, have exclusive use of the venue as well. And the savings are a handy sum towards a house deposit, exotic honeymoon or simply save for a rainy day.

Nothing is compromised, aside from the day of the week - the beauty and allure of historic Combermere Abbey attracts couples from near and far every day of the week, seeking somewhere unique, exclusive and unquestionably romantic to tie the knot. Marry with the views of the world’s only fruit tree maze, beautiful during any season of the year.  The lovingly restored Walled Gardens offer brides a chance to integrate current botanical trends into their theme, and to choose if they would like to tie the knot inside or outside. The natural elegance of the venue can be transformed by you and your chosen florist, or wedding stylist to create a magical environment for your wedding day and evening celebrations.

Make it a real occasion surrounded by family and friends and book them into the luxury self-catering accommodation, just a stone’s throw from the Glasshouse.**

The Exclusive Wedding package is based on 60 guests and includes: 

*   Use of The Glasshouse – a unique Victorian glasshouse with 180 degree views of the fruit tree maze, for a ceremony accommodating all your guests.  

*   The Pavilion – a stylish, marquee-style building within the walled gardens, with its contemporary designed bar (run by Gorilla Events),  exquisite lighting and white dance floor. Dining for all your guests.
