Quirky Wild Weddings
Forget your commercial conveyor belt corporate wedding venues, booted out by midnight in preparation for the next couple in the doors the following day. Instead, allow yourself to imagine a celebration created entirely by yourselves. From delicious three course meals, to succulent hog and ox roasts with an endless choice of buffet salads. No eye-watering drinks prices but bespoke drinks menus tailored to you.
Choose Your Venue
We have two unique and quirky wedding venues to choose from. Our lakeside wedding venue, Chalkney Water Meadows, is a large space that accommodate nearly 200 guests. Our other venue, Teybrook Orchard, is more intimate, nestled between an orchard and a woodland, accommodating groups of up to 120 guests. Both venues offer a blank canvas to let your imaginations run wild!
Chalkney Water Meadows
The lake at Chalkney Water Meadows sets the scene and creates a special atmosphere. Guests will arrive and walk along the lake into the venue. A pontoon stretches out over the water for ceremonies. At the centre of the site is a triple tipi for the reception, dinner and dancing and once you’ve partied the night away your guests can all stay in luxury glamping accommodation.
Our smaller venue is set in an enchanting woodland clearing. Surrounding the clearing is a marquee for up to 120 guests, bar, kitchen, glamping accommodation and wash-block facilities. There is a real magic to this venue with the trees lit up in beautiful colours and the stars shining above.
