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 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!!

Where can we start the whole day was amazing.
Everyone at orange tree, Where can we start the whole day was amazing and so special from start to finish. Sian thank you so much for all your help throughout the planning process. Jan your tireless work during lockdown, getting information and helping us was invaluable. Gary who on the day was superb, keeping everything flowing, helping to create a lovely relaxed happy atmosphere and your work in setting up the day. Your attention to detail with even the smallest of things ( always knowing where Stephanie's bag was 😂) and all round personality played an important part in the day. Simon and everyone in the kitchen; the food was Incredible starter, mains and dessert were all to die for. The whole venue is so beautiful Allowing for so many different types of wedding photo with stunning backgrounds. Every single guest couldn't compliment the day enough. Thanks so much, Mr+Mrs Squance

It was everything I wanted
Living in England, I wanted my wedding to be back home & for all our families & friends to experience the beauty of Northern Ireland & hospitality, especially to our English guests and of course the beauty of Orange tree house. It was the first venue I looked at and when I first arrived to view it my initial instinct was that it already ticked all the boxes. It was everything I wanted: old characteristics with a few modern twists. I got this warm fuzzy feeling as soon as I stepped through the doors. The staff are so friendly and it was then my mind was made up I cancelled all the viewings I had elsewhere & phoned my fiancé ( who hadn’t even seen the venue ) to tell him how beautiful it was & because I was so happy he told me to go ahead & book the date. We got married on 6th May 2019 and a few times before that I visited the venue and had afternoon tea chatted with the staff , Jan, Simon & Gary who was going to look after me on the day very friendly & of a funny character . I had to do a lot of stuff over the phone and by email and Sian was brilliant in every way down to the final details .I was so very lucky as they just had a stunning extension with a bar built overlooking the lough it’s now just the finishing touch this place needed so picturesque and good for guests to mingle & float around , it’s cosy and intimate with modern decor . Our wedding day was so magical thanks to Gary who co- ordinated everything and they allowed us to have our dog Tilly present at the ceremony. The staff went above and beyond to please everyone , the food was just more than delicious ( can’t wait to go back one day for afternoon tea again ) & they catered for all needs .Thank you Simon and the kitchen staff. I couldn’t recommend this place enough and if only we could do it all over again in a heartbeat I would still choose this place the location itself is surround by natural beauty no better place for your big special day .Thank you for making our day perfect - Team Orange Tree House.

We just had the most amazing day
We would just like to say a MASSIVE THANKYOU to Gary and everyone on your team who were involved in our wedding day. Thanks also goes to Sian who has been our point of contact from the day we booked with you and she was very efficient and helpful throughout the planning process. Everything went better than we could have imagined on the day and all of our guests absolutely loved the venue. The layout of the room for the ceremony was beautiful and the evening meal layout was just stunning. Everything was so well organised with Gary keeping us right throughout the day and night. The food was absolutely beautiful and everyone commented on how good it was. We just had the most amazing day and were able to enjoy every moment of it without worrying if anything was going to go wrong.

We had the best time!
Just realising this time last week we would have been finishing our wonderful wedding meal at Orange tree house and just wanted to write and say a massive thank you to everyone at OTH for your hard work before and during the 30th. We had the best time! The staff were so helpful and professional and Garry was a joy to work with, especially with all the curve balls we threw at him.
