I have completely fallen head-over-heels-in-love with this wedding venue… Read on and you’ll see why treasures.
The settings of The Carriage Rooms at Montalto are truly picture perfect with everything you require to create a perfect album in very close proximity to the venue. Upon entering the estate boundaries, a stunning 2 km drive surrounded by woodlands, the property offers a mystical beginning to your wedding day. Once at the venue itself The Walled Garden is the perfect spot for a beautiful outdoor reception; think lawn games and Pimm’s in hand! The Courtyard and stable yard are an architectural lover’s dream with the surrounding fields giving that ultimate rustic, rural feel. The tranquil lakeside setting, reserved for couples only, offers a little time away from the buzz of your day, just the two of you.
Developed around an 18th Century mill, The Carriage Rooms is steeped in history. The original stone walls, brick arches and wooden beams were restored in 2012 and at the same time a modern extension put on housing additional reception rooms and state of the art A/V technology. Everything compliments the original building, courtyard, stable yard and surrounding area. Decorated to the highest standards; complicated and dated room decor isn’t required. Stamp some simple, personal touches on the venue and save your precious time and budget.
The Carriage Rooms only host one special occasion per day. They will fully dedicate themselves to you and your wedding. You deserve nothing less and to be able to share the memories with only the people you know and love most; that’s what’s important.
The Carriage Rooms are licensed for both religious and civil ceremonies. Whatever the weather, whatever the season, there is a ceremony set up for you. Choose between the outdoor set up of The Walled Garden with its luscious flowerbeds and manicured surroundings and the indoor set up of The Sawmill with its exposed stone walls and illuminated arches. Rest assured that whatever your choice, the weather will not stand in your way with ‘Plan B’ always in place.
Host as few as 75 guests or as many as 180 and the space will work. Designed so that every area of the building has a purpose; your day flows from one area of the venue and one stage of the proceedings to the next. This happens seamlessly and without disturbance. An added bonus is the wow factor your guests will experience when after dinner they move from The Banquet Hall to The Sawmill as your evening party gets underway!
Fancy being Lord and Lady of the Manor..? Whether you want to make a weekend out of it or simply stay the night of your wedding then Montalto House is available for hire. With nine double en-suite bedrooms, Montalto House provides the perfect historic setting for you and your family to sit back and relax, in the company of our resident House Manager who is on hand to cater for your every need.
As if you needed any more reason to marry at The Carriage Rooms, there’s the glorious gallery and this wintry film for your viewing pleasure… Enjoy.

Yes, we certainly can. We will accommodate either an indoor or outdoor ceremony if desired; both in equally photogenic and breath-taking settings for making that all important commitment to one another.
At The Carriage Rooms we pride ourselves on being able to provide a unique and individual wedding experience. In our experience no two couples are the same, so we believe their wedding should be either and as such, we don’t provide set packages. This means that even if you or any of your guests have attended weddings at The Carriage Rooms in the past then a fresh new experience is waiting to be enjoyed.
You have the wonderful opportunity to avail of a selection of complimentary extras* that are available to all weddings booked to take place during our low season. These include, amongst others, the ceremony setup and table centres. The value of this offer is a staggering £3,500.
