    The rich history of Orchardleigh dates back to the Domesday Book and is one of the most unspoilt English Country Estates.

    Orchardleigh´s indefinable English charm is testimony to the Estate changing family ownership only twice in the last 800 years. Veiled in a tranquil bowl of parkland and lakes, it’s horizon a sweeping backdrop of rolling Somerset hills, the Poet Laureate Sir Henry Newbolt (1862 – 1938), was inspired to write his finest works from his love of Orchardleigh and it’s Island Church.

    The Walled Garden

    Imagine saying ‘I do’ in our magnificent Walled Garden!

    Orchardleigh’s enchanting Walled Garden comprises a grand and light-filled Orangery, surrounded by extensive stunning Gardens and graceful water features, all hidden within the walls of a genuine Victorian Walled Garden.

    Beautifully tucked away to ensure complete privacy for you and your guests, The Walled Garden offers two truly magnificent spaces that will provide a truly magical and unique setting to hold your Wedding Day; from Reception Drinks, to the Wedding Breakfast, right through to the evening celebrations and will also be fully licensed to hold Civil Ceremonies.
    The Orangery provides a light-filled luxurious indoor space for up to 400 guests – that can be easily divided for smaller and more intimate weddings; whilst The Italian Garden offers a unique outdoor space for civil ceremonies and al fresco dining – with the option to cover with a marquee at short notice should the weather insist.

    As well as providing beautiful and exclusive surroundings for your Wedding Day, the enchanting and picturesque setting of the Walled Garden will make for unlimited photographic opportunities and idyllic backdrops.

    St. Mary´s, Orchardleigh enjoys the unique setting of being at the edge of a lake with a moat around the Church. Hence it is often referred to as ´The Island Church.´ Its remoteness means there is no electricity supply to the church which means all our services are candlelit and the organ has to be pumped by hand!

    The picturesque setting, the lack of electricity and the traditional services mean that many of those who visit the Church enjoy an unforgettable experience. Many of the regular congregation travel miles in order to be here, and would miss the character (and characters) of this unique church. St Mary’s also the only Island Church in the World that has its very own helipad!
    St Mary’s is a Church of England Church and is available for Religious Ceremonies, with an advised capacity of up to 100 guests (not all seated). There is a strong link between Orchardleigh Church and Orchardleigh House for wedding receptions.

    All Saints Church is situated adjacent to the North side of the Entrance to the Estate, in the village of Lullington.
    All Saints can accommodate up to 150 guests (not all seated) for a service, giving the option of having a larger Church Wedding within the Orchardleigh Parish.
    Civil Ceremonies
    Orchardleigh House is licensed for Civil Ceremonies with a capacity of 144 guests.

  2. “Phew! – What a weekend. The accommodation is superb, all of it! All of our guests, without exception were spellbound by the magical surroundings of Orchardleigh. I unhesitatingly recommend the estate to anyone thinking of planning a wedding.”

    “We were looking for the perfect wedding, in the perfect church, followed by the perfect party, in the perfect setting with the perfect hosts. In the words of the song ‘it was a perfect day and we’re so glad we spent it with you’.”

    “Truly a fairytale. It was absolutely beautiful. Perfect! I’ve never been anywhere to compare. You truly make dreams come true”.

    “Thank you for making our weekend so special. The Big Day was just tremendous! All our guests just loved the house. Not one complaint! Must be a record for any event!”

    “A perfect place and a special time, a historical event in our entire guests minds, a special moment to share with everyone, the day our lives became one at Orchardleigh. The bells of St Mary’s chimed one by one, sounding that our married life had just begun, so no matter who you are or however far away you may be, the perfect place to wed is definitely Orchardleigh!”
