The staff understood from the start why we wanted to have a small intamate wedding with only 5 guests and get married in secret. They adjusted the minimum spend on their own accord to accomadate our wedding. The day it's self was absolutely amazing and Manor by the Lakes staff went above and beyond our expectations making our day better then we could of hoped for. The wedding gift from them left on our bed is beautiful.

Everybody we either spoke to or met in person took time to listen and understand what we wanted especially being a small wedding of only 5 guests. They went above and beyond anything we could of hoped for. Checked on us throughout the day providing refreshments and we're there all the time but in the background making sure our dreams for our wedding came true

From the moment me...
From the moment me and my fiancée walked into this venue we were blown away by the beauty of the manor, the gardens and obviously the lake! The rooms for the guests and the bridal suite are beyond words and when our guests arrived they were speechless. This venue gives you butterflies from the time you first see it to the time you leave after your wedding. Happy times!!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

It’s all about the Food! Yes, it’s been fantastic, everyone looked wonderful, it didn’t rain, the service was simply splendid, the children didn’t cry, the wedding venue looked fantastic and the in-laws behaved themselves – a perfect wedding day so far… then everyone sat down for the meal. There’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that the wedding breakfast can make or break a wedding, so why compromise when it’s an event you plan to remember forever. When choosing your wedding venue, don’t only look at the wedding breakfast menu; ask to see photographs of how the food is presented and if possible ask to see reviews from previous wedding guests. Wedding venues that strive for excellence will always be proud to show them to you.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

This is so hard to choose as there are always little things at every wedding but I think it is important to remember the emotional side of a wedding. You can spend so long picking out the perfect venue, choosing the right dress, hiring the best suppliers that you can forget about the little touches. Adding a token from your parents' wedding, exchanging love letters with your soon-to-be spouse, and creating guest books you will want to read over and over are some of the elements that could make your wedding feel ultra personal.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Our couples are spoilt for choice with so many rooms and 7 acres of gardens - but every wedding will always have a picture on our romantic bridge that overlooks our private lake.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We have had a few and even a celebrity dog ...... but ssssh they are top secret so we cannot share on here - maybe we will share when you come for a viewing.

What’s your favourite canapé?

It has to be Steak and chips, with Béarnaise sauce and sun blushed tomato - its always first to run out and sometimes we have guests looking for the kitchen just to get another one!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

You could have anything at the Manor but we get a lot of requested for Hot Chocolates with cream and marshmallows waiting for everyone in the resident bar after most of the guest have gone home - calorific but so worth it!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

We think it is the journey each of our couples go through. We don't want to be a venue that couples book and then don't see again till one month before when they come to plan - we want our couples to feel part of the family. We do this by various events we invite them to from our planning showcase through to our speech planning evenings for the men.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We are proud of the venue and reputation we have created in only a short time after opening - this is down to our close knit team who are all proud to work at Manor By The Lake and put the customers at the front of everything they do. They are such a good team they have won Team of the Year for the South West two years in a row!
