Detailed Description

Combermere Abbey is a unique and exclusive wedding venue nestled on the Cheshire - Shropshire border. Sitting at the apex of 6 acres of Victorian Walled Gardens, The Glasshouse forms part of the world's only fruit tree maze. Whether playing host to smaller intimate ceremonies, or larger celebrations, indoors or outdoors, you will discover a unique and magical setting for your civil ceremony and drinks reception. The unusual fan-shaped building is light and airy, with furniture, silk floral decorations and music sound system for your indoor ceremony. The Glasshouse can seat up to 120 guests. The Walled Garden Pavilion sits within its own beautiful garden, just a few steps away from the Glasshouse, offering the perfect space for your wedding breakfast and evening reception, accommodating up to 150 guests. Stepping onto an al-fresco terrace and into a stylish reception space with neutral décor, comfortable lounge seating and a contemporary bar leading into a spacious dining area. Behind the reveal curtain, the classic dancefloor glitters under the magnificent starlit ceiling. Your choice of flowers, decoration and entertainment will complete the picture. The Pavilion is fully lined in white with central chandeliers and floor level up-lighting, indoor cloakrooms & catering facilities. Bridal accommodation is provided for the night prior to your wedding, within our private cottage, Stone Lodge. Here you & your bridal party can be pampered & prepare for your big day without any distractions other than a well-deserved glass of fizz! Your Wedding night will be spent in the North Wing Honeymoon Suite (housed within the Abbey itself!), the perfect finale to your wedding day at Combermere Abbey. Onsite accommodation is available for friends and family to stay within the Courtyard Cottages. Sleeping up to 49 guests, these are located just mere steps away from the Walled Gardens and can be booked for either a one or two night stay.
