Weddings

With its picturesque grounds and magnificent coastal and countryside views, the French Country House provides the idyllic setting and boutique wedding venue for your beautiful wedding day.

From the luxury accommodation to the exceptional food, we will assist you to create your dream wedding, every step of the way.

The Venue

Our wedding reception area is situated on the ground floor and reflects the ambiance of the house with natural undressed timbers, crystal chandeliers, and a roaring log fire if the chill of the night descends. The room opens out to our gardens. No round tables and skirted chairs, rather brocaded long tables dressed with an abundance of flora.

As part of the celebration, it is our custom that the bride along with her attendants spend the night before the wedding in the house. The luxury of the sumptuous surroundings promote a time of peaceful reflection.
