From the walled Italian garden and rich woodlands to the banks of the River Severn, there are ample beauty spots for capturing breathtaking wedding photographs. Facilities and Capacity Arley House & Gardens is a splendid setting for both indoor and outdoor wedding events. Whether you are planning a civil or religious ceremony, an Asian wedding, or an intimate affair, there is something for everyone here. You can exchange vows on the lawn when the weather permits before enjoying a drinks reception on the terrace or in the exquisite walled garden. St Peter’s Church is a grade II listed building that dates back to the 12th century and can hold up to 180 loved ones for ceremonies. Smaller weddings for 120 people can be held within the exquisite rooms of the main house. Boutique drinks parties and intimate dinners are arranged to couples’ tastes. Inside Arley House, vintage accents and opulent furnishings combine with contemporary details that make this a versatile venue to complement any theme. The dedicated staff also arranges marquees and tipi wedding receptions on the grounds for up to 350 guests. Couples seeking rustic refinement will love the marquee, as they can combine the backdrop of a country manor with a laid-back festival ambiance.

Where to begin?! We only visited one venue....
Where to begin?! We only visited one venue when planning our wedding and even though Arley House itself was still in the midst of refurbishment at the time, there wasn’t a single doubt that we wanted to celebrate our wedding there. The setting is simply stunning, regardless of what part of the estate you’re in and unique to any other venue. All the team were wonderful from start to finish but of course, an extra special mention to our “Lady in Blue”, Amy. Amy lived every part of our wedding journey with us and was still running around and working her socks off way after our last guests had left. She put all the pieces of our wedding jigsaw together and it was an absolute pleasure to work with someone who so clearly loves and takes pride in what they do. We’re gutted that we don’t have an excuse to call anymore but we will definitely be back for many years to come. We couldn't recommend Arley House & Gardens enough.

Best Day of our lives!
We can’t recommend Arley House & gardens enough. We had our wedding on 29th June 2019 and it was just everything we imagined it would be and more. The venue is beautiful. All of guests commented on what a lovely setting it was. The food was incredible, Amy and the chef work with you to create a bespoke menu exactly to your taste. Amy and the team were fantastic from the moment we went to view the venue for the first time and really put you at ease when stressing about the little things. We had our ceremony outside on the lawn on a very hot day and Amy made sure all the guests had plenty of water. The ceremony was so beautiful, it’s such a great venue for an outdoor wedding. We can’t thank you enough, our wedding really was the best day of our lives and we wish we could do it all over again. Lauren and Matt xx

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Oh gosh this is a hard one! I love all our weddings. I would say though the wedding of E & M was a particular highlight. Perfect June Summer's day, the weather was spectacular. The couple where so in love that you could just feel it. It was just magic.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Budget - Identify it as soon as you can as it will help you choose the right venue and have everything else you want.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

The Italian Garden - hands down our favourite place.

What’s your favourite canapé?

All of them! But a wild mushroom croquette is a particular favourite!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

An Earl Grey tea to keep me going!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The Barbican Tower - The historic tower is part of what used to be Arley Castle and stands tall on the rear lawn of the venue. A perfect backdrop for photos.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Winning the Best Venue (Countryside and Other in 2020 and 2021) for the West Midlands at The Wedding Industry Awards. Our first win was only 18 months after we opened the doors to Arley House. We have worked incredibly hard to give our couples the wedding they want rather than the wedding we tell them to have and it paid off.
