Wedding Receptions at Symondsbury Manor
Symondsbury is a very special venue. It suits those who want to enjoy a small intimate event in a romantic and atmospheric setting. The style and budget of your wedding is entirely up to you. You can tailor your wedding exactly as you wish. For example, some Symondsbury Manor weddings have been entirely made by family members contributing food, decoration and music.
The price of a weekend wedding reception at Symondsbury Manor is £5,900 which includes accommodation for up to 22 people.
Some of our couples have held an informal family barbecue on Friday night, for example, as they meet relatives arriving from far afield, before celebrating in traditional style on Saturday, followed by a leisurely brunch on Sunday.
At Symondsbury Manor you are not obliged to use our caterers or our florists, as some wedding venues demand. Also, you can bring your own wine and spirits: no corkage!
Although it is not possible to hold your wedding ceremony at the Manor it is sometimes possible to be married in the village church next door or at the The Ecumenical Chapel in the Garden (https://www.ukunitarians.org.uk). Many of our couples have chosen to have a Marriage Blessing (an affirmation of marriage vows) in our gardens.
We reserve a few dates a year for special, intimate weddings, a maximum capacity of 50 guests. We encourage acoustic music and string quartets in the grounds. Regrettably no marquees but music and dancing in the ballroom.
