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.
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!
- Your romantic haven in the heart of the countryside
- Tranquil, historical and simply splendid… and all yours on your wedding day
- From picturesque parkland to stylish indoor spaces, celebrate your day, your way
Lovely Words from Lovely Folks
Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for the most amazing day! We couldn't rate Combermere and the staff more highly! The day ran smoothly thanks to Gary's fab organisational skills and the staff behind the scenes were amazing on the run up, when planning the wedding! We couldn't recommend this venue more highly of we tried! Thanks for everything.
Mr & Mrs Clark
Such a beautiful venue and fantastic staff from the very first enquiry to the end of the wedding day. Every little thing was thought of and felt like all the staff had a genuine interest in our day. This is high praise as I am an event coordinator myself so expectations were high but Combermere surpassed them! An unforgettable wedding and memories to last a life time. Huge thanks.
Mr & Mrs Senior
To sum up, this wedding venue is perfect in every way. We cannot speak highly enough of it or its staff and they should all be incredibly proud of the wedding venue that they have created. Thank you all!
