Full Description
Combermere Abbey has recently undergone a breathtaking transformation. The Keeper’s Cottage is the ideal spot to get ready and spend time with your loved ones on the morning of your wedding. Put the finishing touches to your look before entering the picturesque walled garden, just a few steps away. The characterful Glasshouse is an unforgettable setting for your ceremony. Recently renovated, it now features a decorative blossoming tree at its centre, connecting it with the surrounding gardens and woodland. Enveloped by a unique fruit tree maze, you can tie the knot in this wonderful light-filled space with your guests all around you. The maze itself is perfect for an al fresco ceremony too! The Pavilion is sat within its own beautiful garden and offers the perfect space for your wedding reception. This stylish and contemporary space will be reimagined and modernised in 2023, creating a stunning setting for romantic wedding celebrations that brings the outside in. It will boast an inviting lounge and bar area, an updated al fresco terrace for relaxing and a large reception area with exquisite mirrors that bathe the room with light and will offer reflective views of the surrounding gardens. Combermere Abbey has recently brought their catering and event management in-house, meaning they guarantee the very highest standards throughout your day. Picture canapés and cocktails, a personalised menu of seasonal dishes and tempting wood-fired pizzas cooked before your eyes at the outdoor kitchen! After the festivities have drawn to a close, the North Wing Honeymoon Suite provides a luxurious setting to relax and let the events of the day sink in. With a private entrance, butler service and views over the might never want to leave! There is plenty of accommodation for your guests too, with space for up to 49 in the picturesque Courtyard Cottages.

Couldn't think of anywhere else to get married
We had our wedding here in October. I can't recommend it enough, the cottages are beautiful, the staff and organisers are incredibly friendly and professional - couldn't think of anywhere else we'd rather get married.

Truly magical wedding
From the open day to the wedding Combermere abbey were amazing. Helped with anything I needed and made sure the day ran so smoothly, as a bride you don’t have to worry about anything at all. Stefan the front of house was brilliant, he is a great asset. Wish I could do it all over again!!

Exactly as I had dreamt
As soon as we walked through into the walled garden at Combermere Abbey, we knew it was where we wanted to hold our wedding. It is simply perfection, the maze, the walled garden, the lake and abbey - just like a fairytale. The run up to our wedding was complicated by Covid (as so many others were) and the team at Combermere went above and beyond to ensure we still had our dream day. I wouldn’t have changed a thing - the sun even came out and shone on us as we said our I do’s. All our guests commented on what a wonderful wedding it was and how fantastic the staff were. Would 100% recommend Combermere Abbey and their amazing team. Wish I could do it all over again! Thank you so much!

Can not say one bad word ! I would love to use Combermere for every wedding ! Thank you again for helping to make an amazing day!

A Magical Location
Everything about the venue was perfect! It suited what my husband and I wanted from that wedding, which was a balance between traditional (lots of gorgeous gardens for photos) and contemporary (pavilion with twinkly light ceilings!). We have lots of children between our two families so the lawns were perfect for garden games and kept them fairly busy during all of the group photos and speeches. Similarly the grounds meant that we had large spaces to assemble group photos, but also to have lots of different scenery and backdrops for our special couple photos. We went to the meir before meeting our guests for drinks at the glass house and this gave us some time together before descending upon the madness that was the rest of the day! All of the staff were friendly and helpful, going above and beyond every mini meltdown in the planning phase.
