The Ceremony

The morning of your big day is a time to revel in the thrill, enjoy a glass or two of premium champagne over a leisurely breakfast and savour a rare opportunity to spend quality time with all of your favourite people in an extremely special place.

We’ll ease you into the bridal preparations in the comfort of our deluxe powder room, an oasis of calm providing a retreat from the mounting excitement elsewhere and, of course, privacy from your husband-to-be.

Any members of the wedding party seeking to burn nervous energy can also enjoy our, state-of-the-art shooting range, giving any keen marksmen (or women) the opportunity to crack some clays under expert guidance.

Our cantilever staircase, the first ever to grace a private home in Europe, guarantees a setting of wonderment for all to behold. It is a singular way to begin your ceremony. As well as the main hall, the ceremony can take place in the 19th Century chapel of Prime Minister William Gladstone’s family or on our expansive 400-acre grounds amidst our sunken, walled and ornamental gardens. Regardless of your choice your dream will unfold before your eyes, captivating everyone you hold dear.
