This unique luxury self-catering property near Bath and Castle Combe in Wiltshire harbours an inspiring history nestled within the grounds of Sir Walter Raleigh's old hunting lodge. Today this impressive venue offers a spectacular location for hosting weddings that dreams are made of. The grounds at The Lost Orangery were imagined by Julian and Isabel Bannerman who have transformed this English country estate into something quite spectacular that wouldn't look out of place in a scene from Alice in Wonderland. Just imagine the photographs!
Wedding guests will take delight in exploring the maze of gardens and sun-drenched terraces, whilst a genteel afternoon tea or vintage-inspired picnic on the lawn creates an elegant country wedding with a difference.
With several areas licensed for marriages and civil partnerships around the grounds of this exclusive wedding venue including a beautiful cloister, archway and portico, lovebirds can take their pick! The thatched boat house makes a stunning setting for lakeside ceremonies, perhaps with a garland laden with fragrant blooms to frame the romance. Maybe you will choose a tropical boho vibe and say 'I do' in the orangery, bathed in the glow of twinkling chandeliers and candlelight surrounded by your nearest and dearest. For a traditional ceremony, there is a pretty village church close by in Colerne and another in Castle Combe.
Whether you dream of a simple string quartet to serenade your guests out on the lawn, or a rousing folk band to get everyone on their feet, the possibilities at The Lost Orangery are bound only by your imagination. Invite up to 250 guests to help celebrate your special day; spill out onto the terrace for canapes and martinis before enjoying a sit down banquet in the marquee. Smaller parties up to 40 guests might prefer the intimacy of supper in the botanical orangery embellished with dripping chandeliers.
