Exotic eccentricities fill this Georgian mansion that you’ll find beyond the golden gates | Priory House is no place for the minimalist couple | Eccentric Wedding venues don’t get much better than this place
Through the golden gates and tall trees you will find the imposing Georgian mansion surrounded by a romantic walled garden. If you are looking for eccentric wedding venues then look at the grand facade which conceals a fascinating interior, filled with light, colour and exotic eccentricities.
Little members of the wedding party love to feel extra special sitting in the hand chairs. Descend the sweeping purple carpeted staircase from the Versaille and Parisienne to two ensuite guest rooms to prepare for the special day. Or you may prefer the silk tented Garden Room for your ceremony.
The Elizabethan “Oriental Brewhouse” is another option for a smaller intimate, alternative wedding. Make your entrance from the minstrel’s gallery! No need to spend your precious budget on styling this venue, they already have the cascading gold curtains, crystal chandeliers, antique gold furniture and huge mirrors.
You better believe it – this is no place for minimalists. Guests always wander awestruck through the rooms, amazed by the unusual collections of artefacts. It is often compared is like a museum. Musicians particularly enjoy the Music Room and like to try some of the instruments. The reception in the Italian Pergola opening from the Garden Room is your opportunity to design the day.
You can make it as individual as you want, reflecting your own personalities and taste. You are welcome to visit as often as you need to the week before, The Brewhouse can be your home from home, make tea, have lunch and even stay for 3 nights of your choice. An original 1950’s army tent can be erected in the garden between the apple trees for a buffet or bar. You can add lanterns and festoon lights to your hearts content.
The Princess Royal Room | This room was named after a reception there during Princess Anne’s the visit to the Carole Lee Design workshop nearby. She is president of the Clothing Export Council. There is a regular guest, Prince Charles’s secretary and last summer, prior to his appointment as an ambassador in the middle east, he got married here. They were the chosen venue for a theatrical wedding of a TV journalist and producer who were fascinated by the Indian Raj connections so apparent in the house that they even wrote a spoof invitation from Sir Francis Younghusband on their invitations. He lived here in the 1900’s and set a Ganesha in the stone portico. An eccentric venue indeed!

You’ve been so generous in allowing us to be creative and try out ideas. Walking down the aisle into a shimmering golden conservatory brimming with colour, beauty, life, family, friends and new husband took my breath away. It really was our dream venue.
