Weddings At Widcombe Grange
Widcombe Grange has 22 acres of gardens, lakes and woodland to call your own, you really can create your fairy tale wedding with tremendous flexibility. It is an ideal setting to hold a festival style wedding, with space to set up a tipee and have your guests seated at trestles, with straw bales for casual evening seating. Or choose a more classical marquee for an elegant feel to your day. All set in very beautiful scenery within the grounds, at the centre of the Blackdown Hills in Somerset.
The Wedding Ceremony
Your wedding ceremony can be held outside in the pretty gazebo with up to 180 guests watching from beside the lake, at the front of the big house. Humanist ceremonies can be held anywhere within the grounds and there are plenty of lovely places to choose from.
If the weather isn’t kind, or during the winter months we bring you inside. Our beautifully converted Coach House with stone walls and original beams can hold up to 150 guests. Or for a more intimate ceremony, choose the cosy living room inside the house for up to 30 guests.
If you would prefer to get married in a Church and have your after wedding party at Widcombe Grange, here is a list of local Churches.
At Widcombe Grange you can let your imagination run free, go festival style, have trestles and tipees or elegantly formal – it really is up to you.
You can party into the night in the Coach House, with its inbuilt lighting options – go pretty fairy lights or funky disco. We can recommend bands, DJs and late supper caterers. The beauty of a weekend party wedding is that you and 24 guests stay here and enjoy the rest of the weekend – perhaps a barbecue and some relaxing around the pool, enjoying the memories of the day before.
At the Big House Company, we want to help you make your country house wedding as individual as you are.
We can provide any advice you may need all the way through the planning process, for example with your entertainment, flowers, cakes and fun activities for you and your guests to enjoy during your stay.
We can help to arrange marquee or tipee hire, priced according to size and to include tables, chairs and lighting. You are welcome to make your own arrangements too – we have lists of tried and tested suppliers. Your chosen caterer will provide whatever style of food you love – classically formal, hog roasts, sharing platters, barbeques – to reflect your personal preferences and the mood you want to create.

If your idea of the perfect wedding is to not feel rushed ,the house party wedding weekend is ideal. It gives you the time and space to enjoy it.
Your wedding is the centre piece of the weekend, while giving you time before to relax and prepare in your own way. The day after your wedding there’s the chance to spend time with your friends and family, enjoying the memories of the day before and making the most of all the facilities at Widcombe Grange.
Alternatively, perhaps you’d like to invite all your guests back, to start the fun all over again. You might like to have a big bbq, some clay shooting, or other activities in the grounds.
