Planning a wedding at Cornwell Manor is so much more than a celebration; it’s an experience, a whole journey. It’s a beautifully British estate that offers luxury without pretentiousness, and it retains an exclusivity few venues can truly boast. I’m shining a spotlight on Cornwell Manor in the Cotswolds, and I hope you’ll see and love its magic and potential as much as I do.
Sprawling across 200 acres, the estate is an oasis of quintessential English life just a stone’s throw from London. Privately owned, a wedding at Cornwell Manor can be booked between June and September with a minimum hire of 3 days. In other words, it’s the perfect Cotswolds wedding venue to extend your celebrations and party all weekend with your loved ones. From the moment you arrive you’ll almost feel like you own the place, with every one of its photogenic spaces ready and waiting to charm and thrill you. Its beautiful Georgian frontage gives all the English country manor vibes you and your photographer could want, and everywhere you look there are impressive landscapes and rolling views to enjoy.
Cornwell Manor is a perfect choice for weekend destination weddings. Set in 2000 acres in the heart of the beautiful Cotswold hills, Cornwell Manor is a private house with a “home away from home” feel available for 3 day minimum hire during the summer months. The gardens and grounds offer the most beautiful setting for you wedding, with a marquee either in the field overlooking the lakes, the pretty walled garden next to the Ballroom or the croquet lawn next to the fountain. The house sleeps up to 24 guests in 12 bedrooms and the gardens have capacity for a marquee wedding for up to 300 guests.
Cornwell offers an impressive array of options for your ceremony space, allowing you to truly tailor your day the way you imagine it. Its Ballroom has the classical yet light and airy interior you come to expect from its facade, and is a wonderful ceremony space filled with natural light. For a more traditional indoor option, take advantage of the Norman church just 200 metres away or one of the local village churches within a 10 minute drive. If you imagine your wedding at Cornwell Manor as an al fresco affair, you’ll be spoiled for choice…imagine manicured gardens, a neat croquet lawn complete with fountain, a pretty walled garden and a sprawling lake. Each space is available for you to say your ‘I Dos’, and afterwards you can enjoy your drinks reception looking out over undulating countryside that seems to go on forever.
Cornwell Manor’s grounds are made to host marquee and tipi receptions, and your only problem will be choosing where to set up for your dinner and party! They work with selected marquee and tipi providers to ensure you get the best possible outcome, so whether you’re looking out over the lake or partying poolside you’re sure to be basking in newly-married glow. If you’re struggling to decide which type of marquee or tipi to choose, I have a helpful guide you can refer to.
What better way to round off your wedding at Cornwell Manor than a pool party on the Sunday? Relax and unwind, rest those sore feet (and heads!) and enjoy a long, steady day with your loved ones. The best part? Check out isn’t until 5pm, so the venue really is all yours for the whole weekend.
