The Venue

This unique luxury self-catering property near Bath and Castle Combe in Wiltshire harbours an inspiring history nestled within the grounds of Sir Walter Raleigh's old hunting lodge. Today this impressive venue offers a spectacular location for hosting weddings that dreams are made of. The grounds at The Lost Orangery were imagined by Julian and Isabel Bannerman who have transformed this English country estate into something quite spectacular that wouldn't look out of place in a scene from Alice in Wonderland. Just imagine the photographs!

In and Around the Grounds

Carefully pruned topiary, trickling fountains, faultless lush green lawns and fragrant rose gardens offer a bevy of tempting choices for where to hold the perfect bespoke wedding within this sprawling estate. Wedding guests will take delight in exploring the maze of gardens and sun-drenched terraces, whilst a genteel afternoon tea or vintage-inspired picnic on the lawn creates an elegant country wedding with a difference.   

The Ceremony

The grounds of this exclusive wedding venue offer several areas licensed for marriages and civil partnerships. Lovebirds can take their pick from the beautiful cloister, archway, portico, boat house, orangery and ballroom. The thatched boat house makes a stunning setting for lakeside ceremonies, perhaps with a garland laden with fragrant blooms to frame the romance. Maybe you will choose a tropical boho vibe and say 'I do' in the orangery, bathed in the glow of twinkling chandeliers and candlelight surrounded by your nearest and dearest. For a traditional ceremony, there is a pretty village church close by in Colerne and another in Castle Combe.


Whether you dream of a simple string quartet to serenade your guests out on the lawn, or a rousing folk band to get everyone on their feet, the possibilities at The Lost Orangery are bound only by your imagination. Invite up to 250 guests to help celebrate your special day; spill out onto the terrace for canapes and martinis before enjoying a sit down banquet in the marquee. Smaller parties might prefer the intimacy of supper in the botanical orangery embellished with dripping chandeliers where 50 guests can be seated. 

The Accommodation

There are two en suite bedrooms off the beautiful orangery, each with a four poster bed and a deep roll top bath tub. One bedroom has an overhead shower, the other a monsoon shower; both invite couples to enjoy the first few nights of married life unwinding and enjoying some blissful 'us' time after the whirl of the big day itself.  

Practicalities and Pricing

A minimum three night stay is required for all weddings at The Lost Orangery. We can recommend local caterers on request (catering is at an additional cost). A marquee is required if not hiring the ballroom and portable toilets are required for all weddings; this is subject to an additional charge and should be arranged directly with a marquee company. The ballroom can seat up to 150 guests and if you would like to hire this room there is an additional cost of £3500. If you would like further assistance, from advice on caterers to a full wedding planning service, we’d be delighted to introduce you to our in-house event and wedding planner, Tanya Sheasby, who has extensive experience in providing discerning clients a meticulous and bespoke service.
