Spoilt for choice

Let’s face it, it can be hard to know exactly what we want when it comes to big day celebrations. Sometimes we think ambient, cosy settings would work best – especially in poor weather conditions, other times we’re dreaming of an outdoor celebration full of fun and sunlight.

At Leez Priory you’ll be spoilt for choice. The venue offers up a whole host of options for your wedding and lets you pick and choose the right settings for each part of your day. In fact, there are six options available for your civil ceremony including the stunning Tudor Great Tower, pretty outdoor Carriageway and majestic Great Archway.

You may wish for a traditional and ambient indoor ceremony, followed by drinks and games out on the lawn and then a wedding breakfast in the beautifully restored Coach House – which can accommodate up to 110 guests. Come evening, you’ll have even more spaces to explore, including the oak Drawing Room, Cocktail Bar and Cellar – perfect for your evening disco. Each setting has its own unique character, but brings with it the true beauty of a Leez Priory wedding.

Food glorious food

Good food has never been so important at a wedding. The wedding breakfast is one of the things that both you and your guests look forward too and at Leez Priory you certainly won’t be disappointed.

Upon arrival your guests will be greeted with an array of homemade cakes and teas, ahead of your ceremony. You’ll also have plenty of choice when it comes to your reception drinks and canapés. From traditional Pimms to delicious pink English sparkling wine, straight from the Priory’s very own vineyard, your choices will be sure to impress!

If a three-course sit-down wedding breakfast isn’t your thing, you’ll also be able to choose something a little less formal. But whatever you choose we can guarantee it will be free range, ethically sourced, as local as possible and absolutely delicious!

A place to stay

Weddings are a great time to get all the family together. With guests often sprawled out over the UK, finding a central location for your big-day can be hard – which is why onsite accommodation is so important to today’s brides.

Leez Priory has 15 bedrooms on site that can accommodate up to 34 guests on your wedding night. There are also plenty of wonderful hotels and B&Bs nearby for any other guests looking for local accommodation.

If you’d like to stay the night with your bridal party before your wedding day, you’ll be granted full use of The Fisherman’s Cottage. This quaint property can be yours to use the night before and on the morning of your special day, before moving to the luxurious Granary Bridal Suite with your husband at the end of your wedding day.
