The Vibe

Only a relatively low number of dates are released each year for wedding couples to enjoy the stunning manor and its surroundings, thus preserving its special qualities.

As such, when combined with exclusive use, exquisite culinary and beverage delights and a wedding partner to guide and assist you through to your Wedding Day, it will become evident that Nettlestead Place truly is a venue where dreams are made. Its quintessentially English setting offers the perfect backdrop to a Wedding Day that can be as formal or informal as you may wish. The unique formal setting of the Undercroft, the stunning Manor House and beautiful visual surroundings are complemented by the perfectly positioned large wedding marquee, which offers a blank canvas for you to theme and transform into your ideal setting.

Ceremonies can be staged in the 13th Century Undercroft, characterised by its 3 medieval pillars and vaulted ceiling. Or outdoor Ceremonies can take place in the stunning enclosed Rose Garden under the 300 year old Lime Tree. The sweet fragrances of the surrounding flora and secluded setting of this garden, makes this a truly romantic setting.
