Cornwell Manor is probably one of the most romantic places to get married in England and the bliss is that you can have the house exclusively to yourself, to create the day or weekend that is unique to you.
You can either get married in the church on site, (dating back to Norman times), have a civil ceremony in the Ballroom, or even a blessing on the lakeside should you wish! If you would like a marquee reception, we have the perfect setting for you: the croquet lawn in the Italianate gardens designed by Clough Williams-Ellis, with the lakes as a back drop. If you prefer something more intimate, we have various walled gardens to surprise your guests with a hidden marquee!
We also have a beautiful swimming pool, in a peaceful setting overlooking the rooftops and the dovecote, and a tennis court if you have time! There are kitchen gardens to choose your daily veg from and acres of woodland to boost those floral arrangements!
The beauty of Cornwell can be fully appreciated through a festival-style luxury glamping weekend wedding: we can organise Bell tents for all your guests, with outdoor hot tubs & saunas to ensure their complete satisfaction, and an array of musical entertainers & food options to keep you going.
The interior of the house is classical English in style, the main reception rooms being the Hall, Drawing Room, panelled dining room, (dating from 1640) and cosy sitting room, all with roaring log fires. Sleeping up to 24 people, you and your family can celebrate in the total privacy of your own Manor House! The panelled dining room, offers a magnificent place for a feast for up to 16 around the polished mahogany table, or the Ballroom can house a splendid dinner for up to 80.
We offer an in-house cook for breakfast & supper and a daily house-keeping service. We would like to recommend our preferred suppliers for your wedding breakfast and can also suggest some fabulous local suppliers for flowers, photography, entertainment, styling, hair & beauty and marquees.
Cornwell Manor is a well-loved private home that has been in the same family for over half a century. Although we will offer a daily rent of the Ballroom from May 2016, the whole house is only available to rent for a few weeks each year. We are not a hotel or ever open to the public, which makes us a truly unique and exclusive venue for a wedding!
