Stunning gardens for you ceremony and photography
Two gardens within Cloudehill make perfect settings for garden weddings. Our ‘Green Theatre’ is a magnificent formal lawn with glorious beech hedges surrounded by mature and historic trees, and the marquee by the Quadrangle Lawn provides shade and shelter and its own elegant ambience.
Wedding ceremonies can be scheduled any weekday. We find Fridays especially lovely and relaxed. Coach groups generally visit Mondays to Thursdays and bridal parties have the gardens almost to themselves on Fridays.
Our gardens are also available for wedding photographs and photography is possible on weekends. Structure in the garden, little pavilions, arches through hedges, is perfect for bridal photographs and Cloudehill has garden architecture everywhere.
Wedding ceremonies are best scheduled around 11 to 12 o’clock and Seasons Restaurant, overlooking the gardens, is available for receptions through to 8pm. Seasons Restaurant seats up to 55 but for alfresco receptions, canapés etc, larger numbers are possible. Imagine a morning wedding ceremony, dew still on the flowers, followed by a leisurely and memorable luncheon, then wandering the gardens after other visitors have left.
We can also recommend accommodation in the area for family and friends and properties that specifically cater to pre and post wedding packages for the wedding party.
