Why Orchardleigh Estate is Unique


Orchardleigh Estate isn't just a venue—it's a complete experience that captivates and charms from the first moment. Here are some of the reasons why Orchardleigh stands out as a unique choice for your wedding day:


Exclusive Privacy and Seclusion: Located at the end of a 3 mile long, winding private drive, Orchardleigh Estate offers a level of privacy that is rare and highly sought after for weddings. This exclusivity ensures that your special day remains intimate and personal, free from the outside world's distractions.


Historical Elegance: The estate boasts a stunning Victorian mansion that serves as the centrepiece of the grounds. Its architectural beauty is complemented by meticulously restored interiors that offer a taste of historical grandeur while delivering modern luxury. This blend of old and new creates a timeless setting for weddings.


Revealing the Enchantment - A Multi-Day Wedding Extravaganza: Orchardleigh Estate offers meticulously crafted 2, 3, and 4-day wedding packages designed to envelop you and your guests in an unforgettable atmosphere of romance and sophistication. 


From the moment you set foot on the grounds, the stunning grandeur of the 500 acre estate greets you, setting the stage for a wedding experience where every dream and detail comes beautifully to life. Enjoy the full embrace of Orchardleigh's charm as you celebrate your most cherished moments over several magical days.


Natural Beauty: Surrounded by 500 acres of vibrant parkland, Orchardleigh provides a variety of breathtaking landscapes. From the serene lake reflecting the sky's changing colours to the ancient woodlands and sweeping vistas of the Somerset countryside, the estate offers endless opportunities for beautiful wedding photos and peaceful moments.


A Private Church on the Grounds: One of the estate's jewels is St. Mary's Church, located within the grounds but isolated enough to feel like a world of its own. Unique for its lack of electricity, weddings here are lit by candles and the natural light that streams through stained glass, offering an incredibly romantic and unforgettable atmosphere.


Golf and Recreation: For those looking to add a touch of leisure to their wedding festivities, Orchardleigh's 18-hole golf course presents the perfect opportunity. Guests can enjoy a round of golf on the beautifully maintained links, which offer both a challenge to experienced players and a pleasant game for novices.


Sustainable Practices: Orchardleigh is committed to sustainability, ensuring that the beauty of its natural surroundings is preserved for future generations. The estate employs environmentally friendly practices such as using locally sourced food for its catering services, reducing waste, and maintaining the grounds with an eye towards ecological health.


Award-Winning Service: Orchardleigh’s dedication to excellence is reflected in its award-winning service. The professional team goes above and beyond to ensure that every aspect of the wedding day is seamless and stress-free. From planning through to execution, they provide expert guidance and personalised attention.
