You can choose either to marry in a civil ceremony in our drawing room, with space for 90 comfortably, or with 120 (90 inside and 30 in the courtyard). Alternatively, it's also possible to marry in a symbolic ceremony on one of our lawns or next to the topiary garden looking out onto the beautiful deer park which can both accommodate up to 200 seated.
