The Benefits Of A Wedding Venue With An Orangery

Picking a wedding venue can be notoriously difficult, especially if you don’t have any particular type in mind. Stately home, church or even a castle, the choices are endless, however most people do not think of more unique venues such as those with an Orangery. Although this may sound like one of the more unusual features of wedding venues, we think it is definitely something for you to strongly consider! Here, we are going to take a quick look at the benefits of an Orangery and why your Somerset wedding venue should have one.

For many, their dream wedding is something that they have held near and dear to their hearts for years. Most have dreamed of their wedding venue since they were young and it is a major element (besides the dress!) that most need to get right. An Orangery, however, is undoubtedly the perfect addition to any wedding venue if you’re looking for a unique countryside location. They tend to allow a large amount of natural light and with plenty of space too, you aren’t likely to be too limited on your guest list. Whether you decide to get married within the Orangery itself you’d like one as a backdrop for your wedding photos, it is a truly picturesque addition regardless.

Perfect Lighting

In addition to this, some brides want an outside wedding or a nature theme wedding however, as we all know, the weather doesn’t always permit these kinds of grand ideas. However, due to the nature of the orangery being all glass, it gives the illusion of an outdoor wedding under the safety and protection of an indoor venue should the weather take a nasty turn allowing you to say your vows in front of all your family in your own little paradise.


An Orangery is a truly unique wedding venue for those seeking a traditional location with something special to offer. Most Orangeries have glass roofs, providing you with a skylight throughout the day and the perfect opportunity to enjoy a dance under the stars as the evening rolls in. The ornate but surprisingly simple design of an Orangery typically offers a stunning setting where the Bride and Groom can still remain the centre of attention without sacrificing the beauty of the venue.

Plenty Of Room

Another benefit of a wedding venue with an Orangery is that there is a large amount of space, which is crucial for any bride and groom, particularly those with larger wedding parties to host. After all, if your venue has a smaller Orangery, you could always utilise the space for the ceremony itself with a smaller group, before moving the reception to a larger dining room where necessary.

If you are looking to have a wedding in any sort of venue we strongly suggest one with an orangery for that ultimate paradise location for your special day. Happy planning!
