“In character, in manner, in style, in all the things, the supreme excellence is simplicity”

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The Arniston difference


Built in 1726,  Arniston House offers a stunning back drop to host your marquee wedding.  For smaller weddings or to compliment your marquee the Orangery is an additional space available to you.

Bathed in natural light and overlooking the grounds of Arniston, the Orangery is an idyllic setting for any ceremony. There is no better space to celebrate saying “I do!” Comfortably accommodating up to 160 guests for your ceremony or up to 50 guests for a ceremony and reception.

Arniston has a variety of venue hire options to provide an exclusive hire setting for your wedding ranging from Ceremony Only to a Wedding Weekend Retreat. Venue hire options are made available on specific dates so as to ensure the grounds are in pristine condition for each event. We limit the number of marquee weddings per year to eight events for this reason. Non-Marquee weddings are available for weddings with up to 50 guests where the Orangery can comfortably accommodate both the ceremony and reception. While weddings for 50 or fewer guests can select a marquee approved date, these are premium dates which would be charged at the full venue hire rate.  We are currently updating the website to offer an extended range of date options for different styles and sizes of weddings. For more details and to discuss all date options please submit an enquiry and a member of the Events Team will follow up with you.

“I just want to tell you how thankful we are for every little detail you helped us with on the day. And of course the lead up. We really wouldn’t have had the wedding we did if it wasn’t for your kindness, generosity, your knowledge and care. We will forever have great memories of you and Arniston House.”

-Mr & Mrs Pattara

“We got married here in June. The service from start to finish was incredible we couldn’t of asked for any more . Kim was always on hand to answer any questions / phone calls / emails from a stressed bride . The advice she gave us in the run up to our day was invaluable regarding suppliers and timelines etc.”

-Mr & Mrs Duffy
