Versatile ceremony options
Where you choose to tie the knot is up to you. Just a few steps from the Bridal Changing Room is the Orangery – a bright, airy and exquisitely decorated room with views over the verdant grounds. Impressive arched windows and hand-painted frescos bring the beautiful gardens inside, no matter what the weather. When the sun is shining however, you can’t beat tying the knot outdoors in the Walled Garden. Say ‘I do’ in this picturesque setting as your guests watch on from the lawn and enjoy the best that the summer has to offer. There’s even a church within the grounds for religious ceremonies too, just a short lakeside stroll away.
After you’ve exchanged your vows, the gardens and grounds are yours to explore. Sip cocktails and sample canapés next to the flowing water fountain, wander through the manicured trees and flowerbeds and discover a wealth of secret nooks to capture memorable photographs.
