Amazing wedding venue and tean
We had a brilliant wedding in October at the Old Lodge and couldn't have asked for anything more. The venue was perfect on the day, food was brilliant and got so many comments about how lovely it all was. Honor and her team did an amazing job on the day making sure everything ran smoothly and nothing was too much trouble, allowing us to enjoy our big day. Could not recommend this as a wedding venue enough

Thank you so much for all of the hard work that you put into making our special day as magical as it could be!! The Old Lodge was the perfect location for our beautiful day and the weather was on our side!! We have just came back from a few days away in Conwy, Wales where we had a fab time, some time to relax and enjoy spending some quality time together! We will be returning for many more anniversaries to come! And we have already spoke about returning for breakfast as it was so yummy!! As was the food during the wedding breakfast!! Everyone mentioned how well set up and organised it was, along with how scrumptious the food was!”

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We had a wedding where the couple wanted a completely chilled vibe with people free to eat what they wanted so we created charcuterie rivers as their centre pieces and had a band playing throughout the day, the groom's band then played in the evening and everyone was extremely happy, chilled and full of cheese!

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

Your wedding day is about YOU so make sure you are happy with the decisions you are making and you're not making them just to make everyone else happy! Politics has no place at an Old Lodge wedding!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We always love to see cakes with a special touch, that really show off the personality of the couple such as a cake topper of the couple and their dog, or a cake in the shape of your beloved car.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Unique, cosy, bespoke, affordable, beautiful

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

James Blunt performed once and Jamie Dornan lives around here!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Homemade vegetable samosas with curried mayonnaise

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our views, positioned right in the middle of Minchinhampton Common and on the top of a hill, there is nothing quite like it

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We will always strive to do what is best and right for every one of our couples, it means no two weddings are ever the same and each couple who gets married here will have an experience completely bespoke to them.
