Full Description
Welford Park, also known as The Home of the Great British Bake Off, offers couples exclusive use of its brand-new venue, Aline's Orchard, for a truly unique and special day. We can also offer special packages to access the grounds of Welford Park including the lawn (and the famous Bake Off steps), formal gardens and bridge over the River Lambourn for your wedding. We will provide you with all the support and advice you need from the team at Welford Park to plan your wedding. Aline's Orchard is a dry hire venue and we are able to provide you with as much or as little help as you need to build your dream wedding day, including access to our list of trusted suppliers. We have a beautiful one-bedroom cottage available for the bride to get ready or for the wedding couple to peel away to after the celebrations. We also have special and limited opportunities to host weddings on the front lawn in front of the Queen Anne style house next to the famous steps. Or maybe you wish to host a weekend of festivities; a party in the woods followed by a reception in Aline's Orchard. Whatever your dream day entails, we will endeavour to curate the magic that will be remembered by all for years to come. Optional extras include access for the bridal party through the historic main gates of Welford Park and to private and secluded parts of the grounds for intimate photographic opportunities.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Nikki
Thank you for considering Welford Park for your special day. Welford Park has been in our family for over 400 years and the estate is a working farm, lived in and run by our family. We hope that Welford Park offers a warm family feel rather a commercial venue. Although weddings have been going on for generations within the grounds, we created Aline's Orchard last year as a unique and exclusive space for all types of celebrations. We look forward to opening the gates and showing you inside soon!

Each wedding is unique and memorable! Welford Park provides a special backdrop for a beautiful country wedding.

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

Enjoy! Your engagement is such a special time, so consider making a planning task list in a ring binder from the outset, which should hopefully allow you to relax and make the most of the planning process without feeling overwhelmed. Set up an email address dedicated to your wedding so you both can access it.

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

Wedding menus drawn by the talented Victoria Fitzroy Design.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Beautiful, secluded, flexible, homely and unique.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

There are so many different backdrops, which also change throughout the seasons. Welford Park is famous for being one of Europe's largest wild meadows of snowdrops in winter but spring brings blankets of bluebells and lush borders on the lawn and summer makes way for roses in the formal gardens and fruit on the trees. From our parkland, lawns and river there is so much to see!

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

Welford Park is home of the Great British Bake Off.

What’s your favourite canapé?

Anything containing local produce!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Sizzling bacon baps.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

If you are a GBBO fan, then it will be the "steps" to the tent on the front lawn.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Our ability to create a truly unique day. We pride ourselves on being flexible to enable couples to create their dream day. We do our best to support each couple with no restrictive, preferred arrangements or corkage. We will help you as much or as little as you need.
