St Mary’s Church

For those wanting a traditional church wedding, The Orchardleigh C of E Island Church is available for Religious Ceremonies and has an advised capacity for up to 100 guests (not all seated). 

St. Mary´s, Orchardleigh enjoys the unique setting of being at the edge of a lake with a moat around the Church. Hence it is often referred to as ´The Island Church.´ Its remoteness means there is no electricity supply to the church which means all our services are candlelit and the organ has to be pumped by hand!

The picturesque setting, the lack of electricity and the traditional services mean that many of those who visit the Church enjoy an unforgettable experience. Many of the regular congregation travel miles in order to be here, and would miss the character (and characters) of this unique church. There is a strong link between Orchardleigh Church and Orchardleigh House for wedding receptions.

 There are also two other local Churches close to Orchardleigh; All Saints Church in the neighbouring village of Lullington and the large & stunning St John’s in Frome, 2 miles from Orchardleigh.
