Full Description
Small but perfectly formed, the newly refurbished Orchid Hotel is an enchanting venue for a wedding that’s as unique as you are. With a civil ceremony license and a choice of settings for your celebrations – from our idyllic courtyard to two completely redesigned function rooms – the Orchid offers an intimately glamorous backdrop for a truly unforgettable day. Just as important, every aspect of your special day is tailor-made – from the menu and the styling through to the tiniest of details. Our hugely experienced team are on hand to make your dream wedding a reality – with countless magical little extras to inspire and excite in equal measure. With 31 bedrooms you may also wish to have the venue completely for yourselves on an exclusive use basis from 11 am on the day of your wedding to 11 am the following day. This includes a late licence for the music until 1 am, a late breakfast until 11 am and a late checkout until midday. We can turn your dreams into reality!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Each wedding is different and bespoke and it is lovely seeing each and every one from start to finish and building up a relationship with the bride and groom which usually continues into their married life!

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

Keep it simple and enjoy your day. Don't stress in the planning process - it should be fun.

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

As an animal lover I was delighted when I had a bride who hired in a baby alpaca and it's mum to the drinks reception. They were adorable and very well behaved!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Boutique Friendly Professional Pretty Unique

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

What’s your favourite canapé?

Marinated salmon, curry guacamole on a cheddar biscuit - delicious! However as our Hotel Restaurant, No 34 has an AA Rosette it is not surprising!

The staff - a cut above the rest - friendly, smiley, professional, helpful and are there to make you have the best day ever!
