The Setting

On the borders of Cheshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire and North Wales, you will find Combermere Abbey. Set within acres of exquisite parkland, the Abbey dates back to the 12th Century. Its immaculate Victorian walled gardens and resplendent indoor spaces are exclusively yours on your wedding day.

The Vibe

Licensed for civil ceremonies, stroll through the idyllic fruit maze to say your vows in the Glasshouse. Flooded with natural daylight, the Glasshouse seats up to 120 guests and, with its views over the maze and gardens beyond, boasts the beauty of an outdoor setting with the shelter of being inside.

Outdoor ceremonies can take place in the centre of the maze itself, or under the pretty garden arbour surrounded by your guests. For religious ceremonies, there are an abundance of local churches within easy reach of Combermere.

Following your ceremony, enjoy welcome drinks and canapés with your guests around the maze and Glasshouse, before walking through to the picturesque Pavilion lawn.  A permanent marquee, the Pavilion’s spacious interior boasts designated areas for your bar, dining space and dance floor with glass doors opening directly on to a terrace overlooking the gardens beyond.

Exceptional food and service are at the heart of every wedding at Combermere Abbey. They work alongside talented catering companies to offer you both choice and quality for your wedding breakfast. As the sun goes down, the star cloth lining and chandeliers in the Pavilion and fairy lights in the trees beyond set the scene for your evening party.

They are delighted to be able to offer overnight self-catering accommodation for up to 49 guests in the converted stable cottages. Meanwhile, the happy couple can spend their first night in the North Wing of the Abbey itself. With private entrance, butler service and views over the mere… you might never want to leave!
