Full Description
Welcome to Orange Tree House where we specialise in making your wedding day one to truly remember. We fell in love with Orange Tree House, situated in the pretty historical village of Greyabbey on the shores of Strangford Lough, over 8 years ago. Since then we have restored the beautiful 1820's stone barn style church and transformed it into a unique conference and wedding venue. When we opened in October 2014, for the first time in over 110 years, a bride and groom celebrated their wedding here.   We believe in "Your day, your way". Whether you opt for a traditional, elegant wedding or take a more alternative approach, we will endeavor to accommodate your plans. Orange Tree House is a totally private venue but, unlike most other private venues, we also provide all of your catering, bar, furniture, tableware etc. so all you need to do is choose your date, menu and drinks then relax and enjoy your day.   As well as having the beautiful stone barn style banqueting room with its exposed beams at your disposal, you and your guests can enjoy the Orangerie with its open fire. You can sip a cocktail or two in our stunning new guest lounge which overlooks Strangford Lough (a designated area of outstanding natural beauty)and onwards towards Whiterock Bay, with the Dromara Hills and the Mourne Mountains as a backdrop. Here you can also relax and enjoy the amazing sunsets, whatever the weather.   The function room can comfortably accommodate up to 132 guests for ceremonies and dinner with room for extra evening guests up to a total of around 160. We have over 100 bed spaces within a 5 minute radius, many within walking distance and are located half an hour from Belfast.   We would be delighted to show you around and discuss your plans.

Everything was exactly as we hoped and then some!
Dear team Orange Tree House, we would like to pass on our unending gratitude to you all for your kind words, help an advice during the past year. Our day was perfect to us. What a stunning place to become husband and wide along with our closest family and friends. Everything was exactly as we hoped and then some! Covid didn't stop us or you! Special thanks to Sian for being so patient with us and all the emails. Also to Gary for being the most efficient, cool , calm and collected MC! Couldn't have done it without your help. The catering & waitress/ waiter staff were faultless! Everybody had a smile and catering for the dietary requirements was extra special. Can't wait to return in the future as I know there will be friends planning their wedding with Orange Tree House. Love Laura & Chris.

Everything was amazing from start to finish
We had the best day ever on 11.09.20 when we got married at Orange Tree House. Everything was amazing from start to finish- from the venue to the food to the staff. We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better day. Special thanks to Gary who was great the whole day and made everything go so smoothly. Every single guest commented on how amazing the food, venue and staff were and how great Gary was. It was everything we wanted and more for our day🥰 so thank you!!
