If you’re planning a more traditional service, there are two beautiful churches within the estate. Neither church requires you to be from the local parish to use the facility, so it is open to all. St. Mary’s Church is ideally located on its own private island. As there is no electricity supplied to the church's remote location, all wedding ceremonies are conducted purely by candlelight for a magical, romantic setting. St. Mary’s also boasts its own helipad so you can arrive in dramatic style!

For overnight guests, the estate can accommodate up to 85 guests in 41 opulent bedrooms in the main house.

A fantastic venue for our son Greg and his beautiful bride Charlie's Wedding Day 07/11/15. The staff were unobtrusive but available when we needed them, smart and efficient. The food was good and the evening buffet of locally sourced items was exceptional. We had a wonderful time in magical surroundings and we can't praise the venue enough. Thank you .

Thank you to all at Orchardleigh for a perfect wedding day!
