A Magical Location
Everything about the venue was perfect! It suited what my husband and I wanted from that wedding, which was a balance between traditional (lots of gorgeous gardens for photos) and contemporary (pavilion with twinkly light ceilings!). We have lots of children between our two families so the lawns were perfect for garden games and kept them fairly busy during all of the group photos and speeches. Similarly the grounds meant that we had large spaces to assemble group photos, but also to have lots of different scenery and backdrops for our special couple photos. We went to the meir before meeting our guests for drinks at the glass house and this gave us some time together before descending upon the madness that was the rest of the day! All of the staff were friendly and helpful, going above and beyond every mini meltdown in the planning phase.

Combermere surpasses all expectation
Son and daughter in law's wedding. Beautiful setting for a wedding. Everything went perfectly. The cottages are so homely and comfortable. The glass house and pavilion so unique for the ceremony and reception. I would love to come back for a long weekend. I have nothing negative to say. Combermere surpasses all expectation.

We had the most amazing day!
We got married at Combermere on the 26/08/17 and we honestly couldn't recommend the venue and all the lovely staff enough. From all the help with preparations, to the support throughout the day it was fantastic and we had the most amazing day. Special mentions to Bev, Rachel, Ashleigh and of course Stefan who went out of their way to make sure everything was stress free and perfect! Emily X
