Gileston Manor is your perfect destination wedding venue. With the backdrop of the stunning Georgian Grade 11* Manor House; the extensive gardens and grounds include a beautiful 18th Century Walled Garden with a picture perfect Summer House, sweeping front lawns and boating lake with views across the Bristol estuary. Gileston Manor also has a small woodland area whilst the Folly, located next to the rookery in the grounds of the marquee, has views of the Jurassic Coast.Gileston Manor allows you to relax and enjoy your wedding day with your ceremony and reception celebrations within one location, exclusively for you and your guests. There are a number of options to choose from for your ceremony, whether you require a church service, civil ceremony or a humanist blessing. Once you have said the I do’s, entertain your guests in your chosen part of the grounds with drinks and canapes whilst your photographer captures your day against the beautiful backdrop the gardens. Later wander through the gardens to our spectacular lotus marquee for your wedding breakfast and evening celebrations. The bespoke marquee with chic design is both elegant and functional with beautiful twinkling fairy lights and magnificent chandeliers that really create a luxury impression. The marquee is neutrally decorated and therefore a blank canvass for you to decorate and style as you wish to celebrate your wedding. Guests can stay overnight in our luxury boutique converted outbuildings or if they prefer glamping in bell tents located in our rookery. With such a beautiful venue as Gileston Manor it seems a shame to just come for one day. Why not book the whole venue for the weekend and stay a while to enjoy the beautiful accommodation and gardens. There is so much to do in the local area you and your guests to explore. ‘Your Wedding, Your Dreams, Our Destination’

A really great day
We had an awesome day for our wedding at Gileston Manor! We were an early booking not long after the venue opened so we got our package for a reduced price as the venue was still under construction when we booked (but finished by the time of the wedding). Whilst we took a gamble (we also booked from Australia without having seen the venue in real life!) this definitely paid off. Sue, the wedding planner at Gileston, worked especially hard to help us pull off the wedding of our dreams and it was clear she had been working long hours to make sure what needed to be in place for the weddings was in place. The venue itself is fantastic, the gardens are amazing and as a whole it totally blew away the guests! It is really special being given the freedom to enjoy each of the different gardens and lots of guests commented on the beautiful landscaped gardens and views. The accommodation is certainly visually stunning and comfortable and what they have done with the historical buildings is really cool. You can't beat being on site the day of your wedding either. The only issue we would mention to brides and grooms considering this venue is about the sound system which is apparently set at a particular level (due to licence restrictions) and funneled into a canopy on the dance floor. This level seemed quiet to us and our guests, as well as the band, who are used to these conditions. This affected the atmosphere a bit. The most important part of the day for us was the party and the atmosphere of the evening, so if you are the same, we would recommend asking about how this works before you book, especially if you plan to have a live band, so that you can be sure it meets your expectations. It is quite possible that this has been revisited in light of weddings held this year and is no longer an issue, though. Other than that, everything was fantastic and we wouldn't have changed a thing. We think Gileston could be Wales' premier wedding destination and we wish everyone there the best of luck and want to say thanks for a wonderful weekend! One last note - our wedding was catered by Strawberry shortcake who are one of the chosen caterers at this venue and are second to none. The best wedding food we have ever had - do not hesitate to book them if you choose this venue!

Premier wedding venue in Wales
“We wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all your staff, who worked their socks off before, and during the wedding, to make it a fantastic occasion, full of wonderful memories for us all to cherish for a long, long time. So many of our guests were overwhelmed with the location, and the natural beauty it offers. Gileston Manor in our opinion, is well on it’s way to being the premier Venue in Wales to hold a Wedding.
