The Coach House Wedding Venue
The old coach houses and stables have been renovated into a magnificent banqueting hall with seating for 130 people and a spacious mezzanine floor upstairs, where wedding ceremonies for up to 100 guests can take place.
The restored Coach House is a dramatic combination of ancient and modern, with the main hall dominated by a beautiful French tapestry and overlooked by a mezzanine floor with glass balustrade, itself reached by a glass and oak staircase; the mezzanine is ideal for wedding ceremonies for up to about 100 guests and the tables downstairs can be then be laid up and decorated in advance.
At the one end of the mezzanine floor, French windows lead to a balcony overlooking the historic carp pool with a stunning 30 foot floodlit water feature.
The Coach House is light and airy, as the huge original archway, through which the horse drawn carriages would once pass, is now glazed, giving magical views over the lawns and gardens and the 17th century dovecote. So many choices are here for those memorable wedding photographs - even a pretty, shaded arbour complete with a two seater swing! Most of the illumination in The Coach House is from spotlights in the roof, creating gentle reflected light; there are also two huge chandeliers, which can be decorated with flowers and trailing ivy.
The three original coach house doors are now glazed and, on warm summer evenings, slide open onto a flagstone terrace, bordered by the original cobbles, saved during the restoration of the courtyard; the original clock in the clock tower, made by Thomas Blakeway of Rushbury in 1753, still accurately chimes the hours. The Italian limestone floor is warmed by underfloor heating and part of the original stabling has been converted into a modern kitchen.
Fees for exclusive use of The Coach House include the spectacular Bridal Suite, overlooking The Coach House and the lakes, for the bride and groom for the wedding night. A commercial kitchen, tables and chairs are also included in the price.
