We offer three stunning options for your civil ceremony at The Orangery. During British Summertime, weather permitting, you have the option of having your ceremony in the beautiful Gazebo, which is nestled within the immaculately landscaped gardens. The Gazebo provides an unforgettable setting for you to exchange those all important vows. Alternatively you can choose our new Lapa which is located alongside our beautiful lake.
Couples choosing the Lapa for their ceremony will be able to make their way through the woodland walk and along the boardwalk to make their grand entrance. The Lapa’s unique thatched roof is open on all sides to maintain the view of the lake, and from here you have magnificent views of the boathouse, the lake itself and the jetty but also the huge Wellingtonia pines too.
The magnificent Garden Room is an all year round stunning location for your civil ceremony. Five double doors span the front façade providing guests with a perfect view of the beautiful Mill Barn Garden and, more importantly, of the bridal party as they make their momentous entrance across the bridge. The stunning roof lantern ensures that the room is always light and adds to the effect of the gardens reaching into the covered space.
A private room is also provided for the bride to meet with the Registrars prior to the ceremony. If your ceremony has already taken place elsewhere, this private room becomes a romantic haven where, as newly-weds, you can enjoy a quiet drink and reflect upon the commitments you have just made before you make your grand entrance to meet your guests.
