Tie the knot at Combermere Abbey and this is exactly what awaits – enchantment and elegance in the rolling Cheshire countryside.
Notes from Combermere Abbey
Your wedding begins the night before in the Stone Lodge. Once the gatehouse to the estate, it’s now the perfect place to spend some time with your nearest and dearest and prepare before you say ‘I do’. When you’re ready, a chauffeur-driven Crossley car will take you and your loved ones into the gardens so your ceremony can begin.
It’s safe to say that nowhere offers places to tie the knot quite like Combermere Abbey. Surrounded by a delightful fruit tree maze, you can tie the knot in the light-filled Glasshouse with your guests all around you. It’s perfect for both intimate and larger celebrations and in every season too.
When the sun is shining, why not exchange your vows in the heart of the maze itself? With blossom dancing on the breeze and exquisite views all around you, you’ll be hard pushed to find a more romantic spot to celebrate your love for each other. Once the ceremony is complete, the gardens are yours to explore and enjoy. Take a stroll with your photographer and make full use of all the secret corners and floral backdrops while your guests share drinks and canapés on the lawn.
The Pavilion is ideal for celebrating your special day in style. The neutral décor means you can create any theme you like and, with a large dancefloor and well-stocked bar all in one place, you’ll have everything you need all under one roof.
And if you thought that’s where your day would end, you’d be wrong! After the reception, luxury and privacy await in the North Wing Honeymoon Suite. Set within the historic abbey, you can relax and let the events of the day sink in. With opulent décor, wonderful views and butler service, you may never want to leave. There is plenty of room for your guests to stay at Combermere Abbey too, with space for up to 49 in the charming Courtyard Cottages.
So if you’re looking for elegance, exclusivity and a touch of magic in the country, Combermere Abbey is the place for you. To find out more about this unique wedding venue in Cheshire, visit their website at www.combermereabbey.co.uk or call them on 01948 838 391.
