Following an extensive refurbishment, the Ballroom is now available to hire for civil wedding ceremonies and/ or receptions. Designed by Clough Williams-Ellis in the late 1930's, the Ballroom is a unique and elegant addition to Cornwell Manor, boasting an adjoining private walled garden, capable of taking a marquee to seat a further 200 people.
Seating up to 100 for a ceremony, or 80 for a dinner, it is a beautiful classical space with a minstrels gallery, perfect for a string trio or a DJ! The walls are adorned with two huge tapestries, from "The Triumph of the Gods", one, over six metres long, "The Triumph of Minerva" and the other "the Procession of Bacchus". Above the carved oak fireplace is a vast bespoke mirror, of verre eglomisé, complementing the room with a truly romantic feel.
Following a civil ceremony in the Ballroom, you can have a blessing conducted by a wedding celebrant anywhere in the grounds - open air by the lake, by the Italian water feature, under the giant Beech tree, at the poolside, in the secret garden - the choice is yours.
