Couples can choose to marry in one of the estate Churches or alternatively the house is fully licensed for civil ceremonies inside and outside in the beautiful estate grounds. Orchardleigh House’s grand Ballroom provides a beautiful space for the wedding breakfast and because Orchardleigh is a private house, residents and guests can celebrate until dawn – so you can keep the party alive until you say stop!
