If you are looking for a stunning medieval location for your wedding then take a look at this venue, The Manor in Somerset . It’ a one of England’s finest examples of medieval England and is privately owned and run by the Lord and Lady of the Manor. Nothing is too much trouble, and they really set out to make your day as relaxed and special as possible, which is exactly what you want for a perfect wedding day.
The Manor dates from AD1235, and has recently been luxuriously refurbished. Situated in extensive grounds on the Somerset/Devon borders, by the Blackdown Hills, we are under 2 hours from London by rail and positioned for easy access via the M5 or from major airports – and just 35 minutes from the coast.
The Manor is an idyllic setting for weddings offering the ceremony, reception and (if required) accommodation in one beautiful location.
You have the exclusive use of The Manor – no hotel reception, no other guests. Just you, your guests and your own country manor house…
The Dining Room and Drawing Room are both licensed for civil wedding ceremonies (up to 70 guests) and receptions (up to 200 guests). You may start with drinks on the croquet lawn before moving to a marquee overlooking the lake for dinner and dancing.
To make a grand entrance you can arrive by helicopter or for a cheaper option, by romantic horse and carriage or even in a Range Rover.
The features editor of OK had her wedding at this venue and she said:
What an amazing venue to begin our married life. … the most perfect place we could have brought our families & friends for this very special occasion.
Your attention to detail and ability to make everyone feel welcome is truly unique and has left a lasting impression on us.
Rosie Nixon ,Features Editor, Hello!
I love venues like The Manor, it has so many wonderful qualities, it’s history, it’s character and warmth just blend together, along with its beautiful location to make it a fantastic wedding venue.
I think it would suit a rustic, traditional or medieval style wedding, I would love to see a autumn or winter wedding here with the log fires lit and mulled wine being poured to warm your cockles. Yum!
I did have some other photos to add to the post but they don’t do the property justice, the brochure shows it in all it’s glory:
