Weddings and Civil Ceremonies
Old Forde House, the perfect venue for your special day. The main part of the house is licenced as an approved premise, giving exclusive use to you and your guests.
The facilities/rooms listed below are not available if getting married in the Registry Office.
Make your entrance up the sweeping drive in a vintage car, limousine or even a horse-drawn carriage. Your wedding/civil partnership ceremony can take place in the Long Room, King Charles Room, Great Hall or Chairman's Parlour, all of which are tastefully decorated with cream floral arrangements. After the ceremony has taken place you and your guests can enjoy a celebration drink, served by one of our dedicated staff. Weather permitting, drinks can be taken out into the grounds whilst the photographer captures one of the most important days of your life.
Please note there is no lift in Old Forde House and access to the top floor is via a staircase.
