It’s always a privilege to work as Orchardleigh wedding photographer. Orchardleigh House, situated near Frome in Somerset, is elegant Victorian stately home which provides a fairytale setting for any wedding. The venue is surrounded by breathtakingly beautiful countryside views, manicured gardens and thier own golf course, if you’re looking for a quintessential English wedding venue then this is the place for you.
Orchardleigh has two indoor and two outdoor spaces for civil ceremonies. For indoor ceremonies and wedding breakfasts you can choose from Orchardleigh House’s grand ballroom with its ornate windows and elegant architecture, or The Great Hall, the largest of the indoor ceremony areas (seating up to 144 guests).  With large open fire places the Great Hall is the perfect choice for a winter wedding.
The first outdoor space is The Woodland a small clearing in Orchardleigh’s woodland: a pretty wooden pagoda with tall trees provides a striking backdrop where you say ‘I do’ surrounded by the majesty of nature.
The Belvedere area, being the latest additions, can seat up to 144 guests and offers the most beautiful views across the estate and beyond. Brides and grooms get to make an entrance from the Vestibule which makes a stunning backdrop in all of the photographs.
For those wanting a traditional church wedding there are two parish churches within the parish.  St Mary’s is a romantic medieval church which looks beautiful filled with candlelight for a wedding. It’s located on its own island at the heart of the Orchardleigh Estate.

There’s also pretty All Saints Church in nearby Lullington with the option of arriving there by Orchardleigh’s very own horse and carriage! For wedding parties staying the night before, the celebrations start with everybody staying at Orchardleigh Castle.  Where better to wake up on your wedding day than in your own castle! On the morning of the wedding, there’s time for a round of golf and the bridal party can use the castle as the perfect place to get ready.
Exclusive use at Orchardleigh House means that brides, grooms and their guests can party as long as they like and with luxury accommodation, for guests, on-site nobody has to worry about getting home.

After the wedding the newlyweds always stay in Orchardleigh’s palladium Boat House.  Sat perfectly on the bank of a beautiful 35 acre lake, it offers total seclusion and stunning surroundings.  A romantic getaway that gives you both a chance to relax, recover and reflect on your big day.

So if you’re looking for an enchanting and romantic Somerset wedding venue that ticks all of the boxes then take a look at Orchardleigh House. And if you’re looking for an Orchardleigh wedding photographer then get in touch.  I’d love to hear about your wedding plans…
