We now hold a Licence for Civil Ceremonies in the Dining Room or Museum Room. Intimate wedding parties are becoming ever more popular.
The chance to celebrate in style with close friends and family, where the sense of occasion is created by the quality of the event rather than the number of guests.
Owners Willem and Pippa know how to organise weddings: they made their reputation organising some of the regions grandest receptions and now they use their experience to bring the same high standards and attention to detail to exclusive weddings at the Lodge.
Self contained and away from the crowds, book Old Downton Lodge for exclusive use – it provides a wonderful canvas to plan a perfect wedding.
The courtyard and stunning scenery leaves photographers spoilt for choice.
The Sitting room and museum provide dramatic and spacious backdrops in which to entertain your guests – not to mention lots of inspiration for you to organise floral displays and bespoke decorations to ensure that your wedding really does reflect your own personality.
The dining hall combines drama and grandeur with an intimate feel – perfectly proportioned to entertain up to 35 guests in real style. Nick Bennett, our Head Chef can create fantastic menus that will impress even the most discerning diner.
At the end of a perfect day, you can rest content knowing that each of your guests has retired to a luxurious bedroom that is unique and full of character.
