Orangery & Glass House Wedding Venues

Written by Emma Hla

Who doesn’t love a good Orangery…? Well, if the emails I receive are anything to go by then you’re all crushing hard on this type of venue right now and with the botanical trend having firmly taken root, I don’t see this style going anywhere.

Orangeries, Glass Houses & Conservatories are pretty ‘hot’ right now in terms of wedding venues and we wanted to highlighted just a few of our faves from our carefully curated Coco Collection.

Stunning glass domes and blank canvas spaces perfect for ceremonies, where tradition blends with the eclectic and the tropics are found indoors; there’s bound to be something that makes your heart beat that little bit faster…
