The Setting

Yarnton Manor, situated in the heart of Oxfordshire, is a 17th Century Jacobean Manor House.

A perfect setting for a perfect day, Yarnton Manor is a unique wedding venue for a magical occasion. With fairytale architecture and spacious grounds, this is one of Oxfordshire’s most marvellous wedding venues to tie the knot.

Yarnton Manor is set amongst acres of unspoilt countryside. When you choose to get married at the Manor, you have the estate to yourselves. All weddings at the manor are exclusive use, giving you and your guests a fully private and tailored wedding experience.

The Vibe

The Manor has an elegant charm. The classically architected, graceful building is steeped in old English style. The deep golden bricks that make up the buildings have stood proud for centuries and provide you with a warm experience from the first moment you drive up the lime tree avenue to that last second as you turn to wave goodbye.

The exquisite architecture and décor of Yarnton Manor makes this Grade II* listed estate the perfect setting for your big day.

Even though Yarnton Manor does not have a license to hold civil ceremonies, they want to ensure couples have the wedding day they’ve dreamt of, with a celebratory ceremony held at the venue, either inside (rooms seating 6 to 80 guests) or outside in their beautiful gardens (seating up to 300 guests). This ceremony is officiated by an independent celebrant, or by a celebrant from the Oxfordshire County Council. The legal registration of the marriage has to be completed by a registrar at a register office on a separate occasion in a short and simple ‘ceremony’.

The Back Lawn makes the perfect pitch for a marquee for up to 300 people. With access from the Main Hall of the Manor, your marquee will have a splendid setting, facing the south side of the Manor. For smaller weddings, the Old Tennis Lawn offers a perfect sheltered spot for a traditional tent for up to 150 people. They are happy to recommend their preferred marquee partners for anything from traditional canvas pole tents, to a Grand Pavilion, Tipi or stretched tent with bespoke lining.
