All about Combermere Abbey

The characterful Glasshouse sits at the apex of six acres of stunning Victorian Walled Gardens, and provides an unforgettable and unusual setting in which to hold your ceremony. Surrounded by a unique fruit tree maze, you can tie the knot in this wonderful light-filled space, with your guests all around you. It's perfect for smaller, more intimate ceremonies and larger celebrations alike, and the fan-shaped building allows for a range of different seating plans, accommodating up to 120 guests.

If the weather is fine, then why not exchange your vows outside in the heart of the maze itself? It's a wonderful way to celebrate in the great outdoors and take in your breathtaking surroundings while you say ‘I do'.

Those who would prefer a religious ceremony will be pleased to know that there are picturesque churches just a short drive from Combermere Abbey, the closest of which is located in the quaint village of Burleydam, just two miles away.

After your ceremony, the Glasshouse and Fruit Tree Maze are the perfect place to hold your drinks reception.

A few steps away from the Glasshouse, the Walled Garden Pavilion is sat within its own beautiful and private garden. The Pavilion offers the perfect space for your wedding breakfast and evening reception, accommodating up to 150 guests. This stylish and contemporary reception space boasts a wonderful neutral décor, an al-fresco terrace to relax al fresco and a large dancefloor set under a twinkling starlit ceiling. Couples can really make this place their own by adding their own decorations and flowers to create a personalised style.

After the festivities have drawn to a close, the North Wing Honeymoon Suite, set within the historic Abbey, provides a luxurious and suitably grand setting where you can relax and let the events of the day sink in.

There is plenty of accommodation options for your guests too, with space for up to 49 in the picturesque Courtyard Cottages. Boasting comfort and style, they can be booked for either one or two nights.

Combermere Abbey also offers a delightful place to stay the night before your wedding. Stone Lodge, situated on the edge of the estate, is ideal for relaxing and pampering yourself before the big day. You and your bridal party can prepare in comfort on-site and avoid having to travel on your special day.

When are you thinking of getting married?

Combermere Abbey is beautiful all year round, but which is the ideal season for your special day?

A blanket of bluebells stretches across the floor of the enchanting ancient woodland in early spring while new buds begin to appear and bloom in the flowerbeds. Delightful pink apple blossom covers the trees and dances on the breeze like natural confetti. The gardens become a floral paradise.

The scent of roses fills the garden and these blooming flowers set a tone of romance and love throughout your whole day. Tie the knot amid the vibrant fruit tree maze in the summer sun and take in your idyllic rural surroundings. Enjoy drinks on the sun-kissed Pavilion terrace.

Enter the Walled Gardens to a magical autumn scene. The woodland turns shades of orange, red and gold while the fruit trees are laden with apple and pears, ready to be turned into juice and preserves to treat your guests. Enjoy any sun in the gardens or celebrate in the inviting pavillion.

A crisp frost on the trees and lawns brings a magical feel to Combermere Abbey. Fairy lights twinkle amongst the shrubbery and fruit tree maze, providing an enchanting backdrop to your ceremony and reception. Plenty of candles and the starlight ceiling in the Pavilion creatin an inviting atmosphere.
