The Ceremony

Ceremonies mainly take place in the Panelled Hall with space for up to 120 guests, or in the Library for a slightly more informal ceremony option – both are equally beautiful. In the Panelled Hall, you can say your vows in front of the roaring fireplace overlooking the Gatehouse, North Lawn and manicured gardens. This spectacular room is the epitome of grandeur, featuring portraits of ancestors adorning the walls and decadent furnishings to complete the look.
