Full Description
The Victorian venue, filled with history and charm, Woodlands house is nested in two acres of gorgeous garden, It offers the perfect setting with accommodation, luxury, and romance for an unforgettable wedding. The house will wow you with magnificent neo-gothic architecture, from the red carpet entrance, ideal for welcoming your guests in style and providing gorgeous photo opportunities for the bride and groom confetti rain exit after the ceremony. The cathedral-like main entrance hall with a majestic double-height ceiling, and a splendid array of colours from the medieval stained glass windows, one of which is illustrated with Robert the Bruce, who is believed to be the ancestor of the first owner of the manor. The setting is impeccable for the splendid civil, or even better, wonderful humanist ceremonies in which many of the couples are choosing the beauty and tradition of the handfasting. We have countless photo opportunities both in and outside the building. Therefore, you are guaranteed to have a wonderful set of memorable photos even on a rainy day and regardless of the season. One of our main attractions is the romantic turret, for some jaw-dropping photos of couples with the surrounding landscape as the background. The garden is a triumph of specimen trees, with flagrant, blossoming rhododendron, delightful wisteria, and numerous flowers. The lush green garden will be the splendid background for memorable, fun wedding photos. We are passionate about making your ideal wedding come true, and believe that each wedding is unique and deserves special touches, tailored for each couple. Our friendly wedding planner will be happy to assist you with everything you need. An in-house cake designer will be here to create the wedding cake of your dream and bespoke cupcakes that are fantastic as wedding favours. We work with a number of talented wedding professionals.
