What our visitors say
“It felt as if C & S had their wedding reception at home! This has been the most magical of weeks. The house sparkled when we arrived and continued to ooze warmth and charm all week - inside and out. We have laughed and cried, enjoyed our new family's company, shared food and wine in splendid comfort, and slept in wonderful beds! We can't wait to return for another dose of Cadhay magic.”

Cadhay is a very special wedding venue. It especially suits those who are looking for somewhere atmospheric and individual to extend their wedding celebrations over a longer period of time than just the single day. You can occupy the entire property for a long weekend or a full week, extending your celebrations to create lasting and unforgettable memories for your family and friends. Cadhay provides a magnificent and calm setting to enjoy this most important moment in life reflectively, even after the ceremony and celebrations have finished.

A stay at Cadhay allows you and your guests the exclusive and private use of the house and its magnificent gardens, thus allowing you to create a wedding that is unique for you. It is a bit like getting married in your own home – albeit an Elizabethan manor!

Most weddings take place at Cadhay between May and September, because the gardens are at their best, and provide an exceptional venue for the most romantic of weddings, irrespective of size. However, Cadhay is also ideal for a small winter wedding.

Should you choose a civil ceremony, there are three possible rooms in the manor house for a maximum of 40 people. There is also a license for the Granary and the Tearoom for up to 110 guests or the Bothy in the Water Garden. For your reception you have the choice of the Tea Room for up to 70 people or hiring a marquee for any number of guests.

Working alongside our chosen caterers and marquee suppliers, you are free to incorporate your own special and very personal wishes into your wedding day, creating a style and mood that truly reflects who you are. If you wish to be married in church, then Cadhay is an ideal “home” to be married from, and to return to, for your reception.

To put it quite simply – it is your dream day.
