Setting Up The Ceremony – It’s All About The Glasshouse

Wedding Planning – 15.08.18


For many couples, the wedding ceremony location is the deciding factor when it comes to choosing their Cheshire wedding venue. After all, the entire reason you’re planning a wedding is so that you can say “I do”. On the day of your dreams, you deserve to make those promises in the most romantic of settings. And in Combermere Abbey’s Edwardian Glasshouse, you can.

Setting The Scene

The jewel in the crown of this Cheshire wedding venue, the Edwardian Glasshouse is an exquisite setting for your ceremony. Combining period elegance with a modern, light-filled finish, this ceremony venue offers the best of, quite literally, everything.

You can marry in a light and bright but atmospheric space. You can personalise a blank canvas, while still treasuring the Glasshouse’s timeless backdrop. And best of all, you can feel the benefits of an outdoor wedding ceremony, whatever the weather, thanks to your views across the fruit tree maze. In fact, we’d go as far as to say that this Cheshire wedding venue is fit for royalty.

The Moment Arrives…

Picture the scene. You’ve spent the morning in your bridal suite, Stone Lodge, getting ready for the big moment and experiencing excited butterflies. Then, the time comes and your dedicated Crossley car arrives to drive you to the Edwardian Glasshouse. Your short journey takes you through the idyllic estate and into the romantic Victorian Walled Gardens.

Stepping from the car, you’ll enjoy the rare opportunity to share a moment with your bridesmaids and father in private, before the ceremony begins. Meander through the magical fruit tree maze as you make your way towards your soon-to-be spouse, who waits in the Glasshouse, at the centre of the maze. There can be few ceremony entrances as dreamy as this.

Then the moment arrives. Your guests stand, gasp and smile as you walk down the aisle. Beautiful, effortless, emotional… your wedding ceremony at Combermere Abbey will be everything you dreamed it could be.

Toasts With A Twist

But the magic of this Cheshire wedding venue doesn’t stop with the first flutter of confetti. After exchanging vows, throw open the glass doors and you and up to 120 guests will spill out into the heart of the fruit tree maze. In this truly unique setting – the only one of its kind in the world – you’ll raise your first toasts to married life. We’ll raise a glass to that.

After your wedding ceremony comes to a close, it’s time to celebrate! Find out more about our beautiful reception space, the Victorian Walled Garden Pavilion.
