A massive thankyou for everything you did to make mine and Ben’s wedding such a perfect day. A lot of people say that weddings are stressful, but I really never experienced that and that has to be put down to everything running so smoothly. Not only did all our guests comment on how beautiful Orchardleigh is, but also how brilliant all of the staff were. I really could not imagine a more perfect day!

It was clear from the first visit that Orchardleigh House was the perfect choice for our wedding. It's a magnificent venue with breath-taking views. All of the guestrooms are beautifully decorated, and we loved the fact we could have the entire house to ourselves which meant all of our guests could stay the night at the same place. The Lodges provided us the perfect way to celebrate the eve of our wedding with our closest and dearest. The staff at Orchardleigh were incredible. They were personable, caring, professional, thorough and always happy to help answer whatever questions or requests we had (and we had quite a few...). We had absolutely the best day of our lives thanks to Orchardleigh House and its wonderful staff. Thank you. :)

There was never going to be another venue for our Big Day!!! We fell in love with the Walled garden from the moment we saw it, the whole team made our Day just the most Perfect it could have been. Karl, I cant thank you enough for all of your help, you were here there and everywhere taking care of the day and it didn’t go unnoticed by everyone. As a fellow Wedding planner and operations manager I know just how much effort it takes to run someones wedding day so Thankyou for this, as a natural born worrier, I didn’t have one on the day!! We have had a lot of great feedback about the beauty of the venue and how yummy all the food was so a massive thank you from us and all of our guests!!xx

Orchardleigh Estate is one of the most amazing wedding venues along with the Walled garden it offers so much scope for a great day with smaller or larger groups of guests the staff are so professional and helpful with the food being a massive highlight so many areas in the grounds for photo's you will love it!
After looking at numerous venues we chose Orchardleigh on our first visit, we secured our wedding date within a week as we were blown away by the house and grounds. We picked to get married in st Marys church which is nestled in the stunning grounds on a little island, the church relies on candles for light and a wood burner for heat, it doesn't get more romantic than that. We loved our church visits so much we still continue to go now. We went away to plan our day with a year to go. I made several visits to the house and church within that year and each time the staff were beyond helpful nothing was too much which took a lot of the stressing away, they were always there on the phone happy to help. I stayed in one of their holiday lets the night before which was exceptional. The big day came... I thought i was organised but somehow had a long list to do that morning luckily our wedding co-ordinator Garry was an absolute star and took it all onboard. from having canapés and champagne waiting for us as we got out the car to my dilemma with my dress. We were made to feel like orchardleigh was our house and anything we asked was fulfilled. The food was sensational, we had so many comments about the table service with lots of people saying they've never been to a wedding like it. Having exclusive use of Orchardleigh was essential to us as we have small children who when got tired just went up to their rooms while we could still enjoy our evening knowing they were safe upstairs. We had our own bar man who was there for us till the early hours of the morning and he even set us up a table for beer pong. We had the most magical day and the memories will warm our hearts forever there isn't one thing id changed and we feel blessed to have such fond memories of our day and thats down to the staff at Orchardleigh. The atmosphere was incredible i cannot recommend Orchardleigh enough.
Our daughter had her wedding yesterday it was the most stunning place.The food was perfect,the staff fabulous and the rooms beyond stunning and comfortable,and the grounds exquisite and last but definitely not least there is the most stunning peacock in the grounds.
I had my wedding here yesterday and I just wanted to say a massive thank you. I honestly had the most perfect day. A huge massive thank you to Trevor for helping me stay calm and helping me plan our wedding so well! Another thank you for keeping the biggest secret for me my wedding singers I honestly couldn’t thank you enough for keeping this from me haha ???? thank you so much for your continuous support, laughter and just everything
Fantastic night at the New Years Ball. Food, atmosphere and entertainment was great. Not normally a fan of New Years but this was a brilliant experience.
We booked this venue for my step daughter's wedding. From the initial meeting, everything was positive and constructive without being intrusive. Anything we asked firvwas no problem to arrange. On the day everything was organised perfectly. The staff were helpful, friendly, efficient and totally committed to doing their best to help it all go fabulously. The bedrooms were gorgeous and the breakfast was amazing. Nothing could have been done better. We were made to feel like it was our own home for the weekend and all the guests felt really comfortable and cared for. Don't change anything. It's all wonderful. Thank you for a perfect day and a very very happy bride and groom.
Recently attended my God-daughter's wedding here. Everything was just wonderful, an elegant venue, beautiful setting, good service - all staff very helpful. I drove about 300 miles to this wedding and it was worth every inch of the journey - the couple looked so happy, it was a perfect fairytale weekend
We had our wedding reception at Orchardleigh house in February and want to thank Trevor and the Orchardleigh team for making the day so special and unforgettable. Trevor and the team made sure everything ran smoothy leaving us able to relax and enjoy the day with our friends and family. It was incredible to have a stunning exclusive use venue with accommodation! Would highly recommend. We loved every second of our wedding day so thank you!

My wedding was held at Orchardleigh House on 26 January 2019, and the day could not have been more perfect. Every member of staff is ready and willing to do their utmost to ensure your day runs smoothly, so I didn't have to worry about a single thing. The location is stunning, and the view you wake up to in the bridal suite will make it a real event to remember. It was especially good for a winter wedding, as having all the fireplaces going gave it a really cosy feel - thanks to everyone in the office and behind the scenes for an unforgettable weekend
