General Guidelines for Weddings and Events at Cornwell Manor

Cornwell Manor is a private home that we rent out for a few months during the summer for weddings, events or whole house takeovers, between June and the end of September. All bookings are from noon on Thursday to 5pm on Sunday unless otherwise specified.

Whilst we do have live-in staff to cater for breakfasts and housekeeping, it is not a hotel experience, more relaxed with a home-away-from-home feel.

The house sleeps up to 24 people in 12 bedrooms and is for the resident guests only, there is no access for all your wedding guests.

We are licenced to serve alcohol and play music until 1am in the Ballroom or in a marquee but do ask that you be mindful of our local residents and wildlife and do not exceed this time limit or the volume levels set out in your contract.

We ask that you use one our preferred and trusted caterers for all event catering:

The wedding reception will take place in the gardens with hire of a marquee a necessity for dining if you are not using the Ballroom. We have preferred and trusted suppliers for marquees who we ask you to use:

We ask that you hire a wedding planner or co-ordinator for the weekend which we ask that you have throughout the event days (until the non-resident guests have departed on the wedding evening), to manage logistics, deliveries, collections and installations. Charlotte is very happy to suggest tried and tested people for this role should you wish.

Ceremonies: There are three options for your wedding ceremony at Cornwell Manor:

1. St Peter’s Church on site can accommodate up to 80 guests (or 100 with standing room). Please note for Church weddings you must adhere to the strict guidelines set out by the Church of England with regard to establishing a qualifying connection with this parish. There is a fee of £250 + VAT for all church weddings, in addition to any fees directly payable to the Church. There are other bigger local churches available as well.

2. The Ballroom is licenced for civil ceremonies, which can seat up to 100 guests. (Please note it is hired empty and you are required to hire your own furniture to suit your event).

3. An outdoor ceremony by the fountain on the croquet lawn or in the Ballroom walled garden. In case of rain we recommend you hire an A-Frame structure or a stretch tent to cover these areas. Charlotte can direct you to the relevant supplier for this.
