With everything within walking distance, your bespoke wedding takes place in one stunning location, with complete exclusivity, whether it’s for one day or an entire weekend! Why not come the night before and enjoy supper with your loved ones, cooked by our in-house chef, and relax knowing everything’s ready for your special day. Wake up and get ready in our bridal suite and then tie the knot under blue skies in our stunning outside pavilion or inside in our beautiful Napier room. Alternatively, the picturesque 14th century village church is just a few steps beyond our garden. After your ceremony, enjoy a glass of champagne and canapés on the south facing lawn with plenty of space for photographs and even lawn games - Croquet anyone? Your celebrations would then move to our stunning 18th century Coach House. Host your wedding breakfast amongst wooden beams and fairy lights then dance the night away with friends and family in our unique party space with custom made dance floor, bespoke bar and candlelit cosy seating booths. When it’s time to say goodnight, you have complimentary use of our beautiful Orchard suite and your loved ones can also stay nearby in our beautiful bedrooms or under the stars in our 16ft luxury tipis in the garden.

We are so glad that we picked Pennard House
Thank you so incredibly much! We had the most amazing day and I don’t think it could have gone any better. We are so glad that we picked Pennard House to host the day. It is such a special place and we had compliments from our guests all day about how beautiful it is. In addition, it meant that we were in the safe and more than capable hands of you and your team. You have been such an amazing help, not just on the day itself, but in all of the planning stages since we first came down to view Pennard all the way at the start of 2019. We couldn’t have done it without you, so thank you!

One of nicest places to get married in Somerset
I love this venue because the house & grounds are just stunning. It's one of the nicest places to get married in Somerset. The staff are incredible and will help you plan & decorate your wedding to your personal taste & style. Weddings at Pennard House are amazing, because you have exclusive access to the entire house and grounds for the duration of your stay. There are so many beautiful rooms in the house & the gardens are perfect for photos. The staff are all so attentive and friendly & make sure your day runs smoothly and on time, which is really helps when you're having a big wedding.

We really did have the happiest day of our lives
I can’t believe it was over a week ago now! Just wanted to say the biggest possible thank you to you and everyone at Pennard who helped to make our day so incredible. You, Harry, La, Ellie, and everyone else we dealt with were so incredibly helpful and made it a day we will remember forever despite the few hiccups along the way, you kept us so well informed with any changes that needed to be made and made a last minute change of caterers really simple to navigate. I’ve had friends who found getting married such a stressful process but the whole team at Pennard and your relaxed vibe made sure that nothing was too stressful and I think that really helped us to have just the most fun and relaxed day we could have possibly wanted. Both our families and all of the guests commented on how amazing everyone at Pennard was, as well as how beautiful it is. The food in general was absolutely flipping delicious – I wish we could have that all the time – I need to track down the sausage canapes we had because everyone I spoke to in the days after the wedding said how good they were! A great decision to take the catering in house I think! Just need some more friends to get married now so I can persuade them to use Pennard and we have an excuse to come back. Thank you again, we really did have the happiest day of our lives.
