This exclusive manor house in Wiltshire is a spectacular wedding venue certain to impress wedding guests by exuding a special blend of grandeur, heart and soul.

  1. Polly & Rob

    Where do I begin with Polly and Rob’s gorgeous wedding?! The Lost Orangery is fast becoming one of my favourite wedding venues. It’s a little slice of Venetian heaven tucked away in the Wiltshire countryside and it can be hired exclusively for a whole weekend. If you’d like to see more, we also featured this stunning styled shoot from The Lost Orangery. Once you’ve seen the outdoor chandelier you’ll all be sold ?
    Not only is the venue picture perfect, but so are Polly and Rob! They just make such a handsome couple and both look deliriously happy and in love. Enjoy this joy-filled affair, it’s a total swoon worthy occasion.

    The Venue
    Polly The Bride: When we first got engaged, we went to visit lots of different venues and originally booked a big country house wedding venue down in Yeovil. The venue was beautiful but as time went on, we started having so many problems with the management and were both starting to feel really stressed so we made the decision to cancel our booking and try to find somewhere else. I found The Lost Orangery online and as soon as we went to visit we just knew it was the perfect venue for us. I’m so glad we went with our instincts as it has the most beautiful gardens we’d ever seen and the whole experience of planning the wedding there was so different. The team were so helpful and friendly and made our day so special. We were incredibly lucky with the weather on the day so it meant we got to have a lovely long drink reception outside in the gardens and got to enjoy all the different areas of the garden. For the wedding breakfast and dancing, we had a beautiful marquee from Henry at Bath Marquees, who was an absolute star and made the set up very seamless and stress free.

    The Décor
    We went for a lovely pastel colour palette and added lots of mercury silver candle holders and vases along the long tables. We decorated the venue and marquee with lots of candles which looked beautiful when the sun went down in the evening. Rob made toffee vodka and sloe gin to give as favours and we bottled it in little glass bottles decorated with wooden hearts. My sister is an amazing artist and illustrated all of our wedding stationary, orders of service and menus with beautiful drawings of the venue.

    The Dress
    When we first got engaged, I spent hours on Pinterest searching for my perfect dress and thought I had a pretty clear picture of what I wanted in my mind. However, as soon as I started trying on dresses, I found it hard to find something that I loved and was worried I wouldn’t find ‘the one’. After trying on a few different styles, Everley at Teokath in Wimbledon, suggested I try on a beautiful lace fitted fishtail dress from Annasul Y. It was the complete opposite of what I originally wanted but soon as put it on, I felt so comfortable and happy.
    I’m incredibly indecisive so I still went to a few more bridal shops and tried on lots more dresses but kept thinking of the one I found in Teokath so knew it was the one for me.

    Hair & Make Up
    I really loved the morning of the wedding and had such a great time getting ready with my Mum, sister and best friends. My amazing hairdresser Jessie was on hand to do everyone’s hair. I chose to have my hair down in a relaxed style and had a beautiful flower crown made of roses and eucalyptus leaves.
    I met Sophie when she did the makeup for my sister’s wedding a few years ago and so knew she would also do an amazing job.
    Having people I really trusted made me feel so much more comfortable on the morning of the wedding and Sophie and Jessie were both so lovely to be around.

    The Flowers
    We were incredibly lucky that one of Rob’s close family friend’s is a very talented florist. Julia was absolutely amazing and created the most beautiful wedding flowers for us. We went for a beautiful palette of light pinks and cream with lots of Eucalyptus. The Marquee looked absolutely stunning and our bouquets were just absolutely perfect.

    The Ceremony
    We got married at St Cyriac’s church in Lacock. It felt really special as my parent’s had lived in the village for a long time and my sister had also got married there a few years ago so it was nice that it meant so much to us. I was so nervous coming into the church and worried that I would be really emotional and not be able to say my vows but I felt so much better once I’d seen Rob and it was one of my favourite memories of the day.

    The Groom
    Rob chose a lovely three piece navy suit for himself and his ushers. He went for a pink tie and chose grey ties for the ushers.

    The Bridal Party
    I had five lovely bridesmaids including my sister Eve and four friends from school. We chose beautiful long grey dresses from David’s Bridal. My friend Auriol made gypsophila crowns for the girls which looked absolutely stunning.
    The Entertainment
    We booked the amazing iPop after seeing them perform at a friend’s wedding a few years ago and couldn’t recommend them more. Suzanne and the band were so lovely to deal with in the run up the wedding and were absolutely brilliant on the night. They had everyone up dancing into the early hours which was exactly what we wanted for the wedding.

    The Photography
    One of our best decisions on the day was choosing Jessica to be our photographer after finding her website on The Love Lust List, the recommended supplier directory on Rock my Wedding. Jessica was such a lovely calming presence on the day and felt like having another friend around. Rob and I aren’t too comfortable having our photo taken but Jessica, and her partner Rob, were absolute stars and made us feel so comfortable and relaxed. The photos are absolutely stunning and such a brilliant reminder of the day. We’ve had countless compliments on our wedding photos and my bridesmaid has already booked Jessica as well for her wedding next year!

    The Videography
    We were in two minds about whether to get a videographer or not. The wedding was getting so expensive and so we were tempted to try and save a bit of money but I’m so glad we went ahead with one. We booked Gary from Cinematic Wedding Videos who has videoed a few of our friend’s weddings. Gary made such a lovely video which is the perfect reminder of the day. It’s so lovely to have all the special moments captured on video.

    Final Thoughts
    We were both really lucky to have such lovely supportive friends and family who all helped so much in the run up to the wedding. I definitely still let stress get the better of me and felt quite overwhelmed in the run up to the wedding. Looking back I wish I had just relaxed a bit more as we just had the best day ever. It was such a lovely day and the best feeling for me and Rob to be together surrounded by all the people we love in the world. I just wish we could do it all over again!

  2. Emily & Edward

    This mornings wedding is beautiful in every sense of the word, I’ve simply loved putting it together for you. Emily’s words paint a really accurate picture of the day, and of her and Edwards’ relationship, and so along with James’ emotive photographs you really feel as if you’re living their wedding day with them.
    The pair opted to have an intimate ceremony and dinner followed by a big party the next evening, which I think is a wonderful idea if the thought of combining everything is getting too much for you. It meant they got to enjoy two fabulous venues too. The Lost Orangery from Unique Home Stays is simply magical and the perfect place to hold a stylish and elegant soiree. In fact we love the Unique Home Stays property portfolio so much that we’re currently running a competition with them, so do check it out if you’ve missed it. You could win a stay worth £995 in an incredible love nest by the sea…
    But first, let’s enjoy this wedding, it’s the perfect balance of soul and style for a Sunday morning.

    Our Wedding
    Emily The Bride: We had a weekend of celebrations. On Friday 29th July we had a small ceremony and reception with our bridal party, followed by a black tie reception the following evening for 80 family and friends. We’ve lived in Bath for the past couple of years. It’s a beautiful city. Ed grew up here and I’ve also developed a strong affinity with the area – and we wanted to get married in a place that had meaning for us. I have a studio in the centre of town and everyday on my way to it I walk past The Royal Crescent. I actually have quite a vivid memory of my parents taking me to see it when I was about 8 years old: I remember feeling in awe of it. Now, it’s quite strange to think that I didn’t know I’d get married here one day.

    The Ceremony
    We’re not traditionalists and are fortunate to have very easy-going parents so we were free to design a wedding of our choosing. We were very drawn to the idea of a small ceremony – intimate, special, significant – and wanted to get married outside amongst the flora, fauna, birds and bees. The Royal Crescent Hotel had a magical little secret garden in the grounds, licensed to hold weddings, so it was right for us.
    We got married here surrounded by 25 of our closest friends and family – essentially, our bridal party. My father gave me away. He did such a good job. One of the things we’d underestimated was how our parents would feel during and after the wedding – they were elated, literally buzzing – and that was very special for us.
    I walked down the aisle to an acoustic version of Bon Iver’s Holocene. We’d asked Matt to cover three songs during the ceremony: Holocene for the entrance, Dire Strait’s Romeo + Juliet for the recital and Peter Gabriel’s Solsbury Hill for the recessional. It was special to have songs we loved played just for us.

    We designed our ceremony with our incredibly lovely registrar Julia. We basically cherry-picked all our favourite bits and stitched it all together. From this, we chose our vows. We considered writing our own but thought we’d get too much stick for it! So instead, we focused on picking music and readings that really meant something to us.
    We had three readings: Poem to First Love, Matthew Yeager, an extract from A Farewell to Arms, Ernest Hemmingway and an extract from The Amber Spyglass, Phillip Pullman. Ed subscribes to various literary newsletters and often shares with me the things he likes, so over the years we’d collected some beautiful poems and readings.
    The ceremony was followed by champagne and canapés on the croquet lawn, and then a five course tasting lunch in a private room overlooking the gardens. We stayed in the hotel’s master suite that night – it was quite romantic until our friends decided to gate-crash – so we ended up having a bit of a room party until the early hours. Spontaneity is what happy memories are made of and it ended up being one of our happiest wedding moments.
    In addition to this, we also wanted to throw a good party. So decided to have a wedding of two parts. The next evening we hosted a black tie party at The Lost Orangery to give us a chance to celebrate with all of our friends. Looking for the party venue required more homework…we wanted somewhere with ambience and imagination that didn’t feel too rule-bound and would work come rain or shine. By chance, The Lost Orangery, a private house just outside of Bath, had recently become available for events. Situated at the top of the valley where Ed grew up, we jumped on it.

    The Reception
    Having done the ceremonial part of the wedding the day before, we had a lot of freedom – so just focused on what makes an enjoyable celebration. We wanted to help guide our guests through the evening so they felt well looked after and entertained. With this in mind, we structured different parts of the evening in different zones of the venue. We kicked off with a champagne and canapé reception on the terrace overlooking the lake – we lit the fire-pit in the middle of the lake and put the DJ in the boat-house so he could play ambient house to the crowd to get everyone in the mood. It felt pretty out of this world and established a nice tone for the rest of the evening. We then took people through the grounds to the main lawn for supper – we positioned poseur tables and stools in various spots – and served an exotic menu of food such as Mexican pork pibil, Brazilian moqueca prawn stew and Moroccan lamb tagine. We asked our lovely acoustic guitarist from the ceremony to come back and play to our guests whilst eating. For the final part of the evening we moved guests up to the orangery for the speeches and cake-cutting on the roof terrace, followed by dancing inside until late.
    We planned and organised the wedding ourselves, however did hire a wedding co-ordinator for the weekend to set everything up, run the party and clear up afterwards. Best. Money. Spent. Harriet was amazing. When the weekend arrived she took complete charge, which meant we didn’t have to worry about a thing.

    Our Story
    We’ve been together for eleven years now. We met in our final year at Exeter University. We were both studying English and Ed wooed me with his words! I think we worked out we only spent about three nights apart in the first year we were together: it was definitely love in its soppiest form. After university we moved to London, and in time, moved in together. We definitely both changed in that period: we grew up and we grew together. About three years ago we both had significant career changes. Ed was working in banking and I was in marketing. We enjoyed what we did but we enjoyed photography and writing more. So one day we both quit in search of a more creatively fulfilling life. It was intense and daunting but we were on the adventure together. About six months later Ed proposed.
    Something that had guided us from the outset was choosing venues with soul and ambience. We felt if we could get that right – be in places that felt romantic and magical – then everything else would fall into place. Essentially we were directed by the mood not themes: on the Friday we wanted it to feel romantic and chic and on the Saturday a little more decadent.

    The Dress
    I didn’t have a fixed idea of the style of dress, but I knew that I wanted a weighty, luxurious fabric in a beautiful cut. I had seen a picture of Carolyn Bessette Kennedy on her wedding day twenty years ago – her dress was so simple, yet beautiful – so I took that as my inspiration. I was a bit unsure if wedding dresses would suit me and didn’t want to obsessively follow a bridal theme that I’d look back on and regret. So in the end, I asked myself a simple question: could someone wear this dress to the Oscars? When I put my dress on there weren’t hysterical sobs of joy but I did feel really nice in it! I loved the simplicity of the fabric and the flattering, fitted cut.

    The Wedding Party
    I had four wonderful bridesmaids. They didn’t wear traditional bridesmaid dresses; just whatever they pleased! I gave each of them a bracelet to wear on the day to say thank you for all their help and support.

    The Photography
    James was absolutely lovely to work with: easy-going, discrete and mega talented. We’d seen his work and loved his aesthetic. He has an earthy, soulful style that really appealed to us. I contacted him when he was living in Australia and as luck would have it he was moving back to the UK just in time to shoot our wedding.

    The Flowers
    We wanted the flowers to look chic and contemporary. On a practical level, we also wanted to use them across both days and venues. So we decided to have white mono-botanical arrangements in individual vases. We wanted to use the budget wisely, so decided to concentrate the flowers into two specific locations for greater impact. For the ceremony, we opted for tall minimalist cylinder vases, filled with white stocks, delphiniums, hydrangeas, eucalyptus, thlaspi and ammi. These were grouped together and staggered at varying heights on Perspex plinths, surrounded by candles. We mirrored this for the lunch; filling the table with lots of individual vases of white flowers and foliage consisting of white scabious, roses, sweetpeas, lisianthus, gelda and hydrangeas. I wanted a petite and pure white bouquet – so foliage was minimal and it consisted of roses, hydrangea, sweetpea and scabious to give it a dense, textured feel. Ed wanted something similarly neat and contemporary for his buttonhole – so opted for 3 heads of white double lisianthus with a sprig of thlaspi and eucalyptus. For the Saturday evening, we redistributed the ceremony and table flowers around the party venue: we staggered the vases on entrance steps, poseur tables, on the bar and in the orangery.
    Our florist was so patient and helpful. They created a really useful mood-board outlining and demonstrating what they could achieve with our budget – from the types of flowers and volume we could expect to a mocked up layout of the arrangements and props. They also had an amazing supply of props e.g. lanterns, vases, votives, signage etc so we had a lot of flexibility to customise things here.

    The Cake
    I wasn’t going to have a cake until my lovely friend Veryan kindly offered to make one for us. She did an amazing job! It looked beautiful and was so delicious. We went for four white tiers with gold metallic accents. Each tier had a different flavour: carrot cake, victoria sponge, red velvet and fruitcake. We’ve saved the top tier and it’s currently residing happily in our freezer until a special occasion warrants eating it!

    The Stationery
    I’m quite into stationery, so was in my element for this part of the planning. Again, we wanted something quite contemporary and simple. We were after a weighty paper and letterpress technique but needed to work with our budget – Artcadia offered really good value. We picked white A5 600gsm card stock with gold hot foil printing in a handwritten style font. I then ordered grey silk ribbon to hand tie the wedding invitation bundle together, and a nib and ink from Quill London to handwrite the names and envelopes.

    The Decor
    On the décor side we kept things quite simple and prioritised flowers, candles and lanterns. Colour wise we stuck to whites, greys and gold. For the lunch on Friday we wanted to create an abundant look so styled one long table: lots of different vases of white flowers, grey candles in gold holders, votives, lanterns, grey runners down the centre and shells spray painted in gold. This was all recycled and restyled at the party venue the next day.

    The First Dance
    Our first dance was Marvin Gaye’s Lets Get it On: it has that addictive summery, soulful, Motown sound. Ed’s not much of a dancer in public, but when we’re listening to music at home, he’ll often take my hand and spin me around in the kitchen. One time, this was the song that was playing.

    Favourite Moment
    There were so many happy moments, but my favourite part was the ceremony. I just felt very calm; I was focused on Ed but I was able to take it all in at the same time. It was very emotional and we were so happy.

    Advice
    I wish I’d organised my hair, make-up and accessories sooner. I ended up doing all of my trials the week before the wedding because I’d been so busy with work earlier in the summer. It was a bit frustrating not knowing what I was actually going to look like on my wedding day and quite hard to imagine that part of things – if I’d sorted it sooner it would have been one less thing to worry about!
    Someone told me to ‘be present’ during the wedding. So really concentrate on taking it all in and engaging all of my senses. This was a good piece of advice – I did this during the ceremony and my memories of it are really vivid. The distance between the ceremony and the house was not very far at all, so when Ed booked the car to take me to the hotel he arranged for the driver to take the long route there: through the park and the prettiest parts of Bath. That was really lovely because it allowed me to have a moment, think about the significance of things and extend a special moment with my father.

  4. The Lost Orangery, Euridge Manor, Colerne

    Euridge Manor and it’s grounds blew me away, honestly one of the most beautiful places I have ever been and Candice & Mathew’s day only added to that. Hidden Away between Bath and Castle Coombe it’s an amazing find, The Lost Orangery is small (Candice and Mathew had 16 guests) but I’m told you can have a marquee for bigger parties. The fewer guests meant we could spend a little more time away taking photos which was a lot of creative fun as well as just lovely to see how well Candice & Mathew get on. Prepare to get a little jealous!

    A huge thanks to the wonderful Candice & Mathew, it was lovely to be part of your day.

    Flowers were by Jill Jefferies: http://www.jilljeffries.com/

    As I write this I don’t believe Euridge Manor has a website for weddings, but they are booking, possibly through Unique Homestays: http://www.uniquehomestays.com

    And if you’re getting married at The Lost Orangery or Bath, Bristol or beyond get in touch! I’d love to hear your plans.
