euridge manor outdoor wedding spaces
There are six indoor and outdoor locations available for wedding ceremonies.
My absolute favourite is the boathouse. Being in the boathouse is like being in the Kingdom of Narnia and an Italian villa by Lake Como at the same time. Look at the photos and I’m sure you’ll agree. The boathouse is licensed to fit up to 20 people. But it can definitely sit a lot more. That’s if you choose to use the space under the pergolas in the Italianate terrace. And if you’re hoping to have a spring wedding, make sure you time it for when the wisterias are in full bloom. Imagine beautiful lilac flowers climbing around the pillars and filling your wedding ceremony space with that fragrant spring scent while you say I do.
Then there’s the iconic castle ruin with a sparkly crystal chandelier hanging in the middle of its arch. Google Euridge Manor and you’ll surely see this as one of the top photos. It’s no surprise that the castle ruin and its signature arch have become such a favourite spot among wedding photographers. It’s the perfect backdrop for both your outdoor wedding ceremony and your newly married portraits.
Just a few steps away from the castle ruins is the most beautiful portico. My advice? Time your wedding around summer if you want to use this space. Trust me, the portico truly transforms into something magical around early to mid-August. Beautiful English roses are in full bloom and delicately cling to each of the pillars lining the portico. And behind the portico is a stunning view of the Cotswolds. What more could you ask for?
the lost orangery
Inside Euridge Manor’s expansive grounds is this beautiful light-filled gem, Valentina’s lost orangery. This room is filled with floor-to-ceiling windows and doors, opulent crystal chandeliers that reflect the abundant light seeping through the generous roof panels, and tall lush evergreen palms in each corner. It really is a magical room that you can use for your intimate wedding ceremony, a fancy rehearsal dinner, or a post-wedding day brunch. But that’s not all. There are two spacious en-suite bedrooms at each end of the orangery and a full-size kitchen in between the bedrooms – perfect for entertaining!
indoor wedding spaces
Ideally for intimate weddings, the wedding ceremony can be held at the boathouse (outdoor up to 20 guests) or the cloister (indoor up to 40 guests) and the reception at the portico (outdoor up to 50 seated guests) or the orangery (indoor up to 50 seated guests). But if yours is a bigger wedding, don’t panic. There are more wedding ceremony and reception spaces for you to choose from.
For bigger wedding ceremonies, there’s the orangery and the grand ballroom. The orangery can accommodate up to 120 seated guests while the grand ballroom can fit up to 150. Both spaces have floor-to-ceiling windows that allow natural light to come through. Tastefully decorated with crystal chandeliers and surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows, both spaces make it easy to bring the outside in. And of course, perfect for having the dreamiest wedding photos. And for bigger wedding receptions, both the grand ballroom and a marquee on the lawn can seat up to 150 guests.
