Found in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside, midway between Chippenham and Calne, lies the elegant and truly historic estate surrounding Bowood House. The celebrated site of the discovery and isolation of oxygen, and original home of the 1st Marquess of Lansdowne, this fascinating 2000-acre estate has a great deal to offer wedding couples who set foot on its prestigious grounds.

Ceremonies and receptions taking place at Bowood benefit from a wide range of facilities, luxurious bedrooms, private and lavish function suites, spa facilities, top-end cuisine and so much more.

Bowood's estate was originally bought by John Petty Fitzmaurice, 1st Earl of Shelburne from the crown in 1754, and his family have resided here ever since. It was John Petty's son, William, who gained the title of Marquess of Lansdowne for the family, after negotiating peace with America after the War of Independence.

Today Charles Maurice and Fiona, 9th Marquis and Marchioness of Lansdowne, enjoy the property as their principal residence.


Set in 2,000 acres of beautiful gardens and parkland in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside, Bowood Hotel, Spa and Golf Resort is a stunning wedding venue.

The impressive 'Golden Gates' entrance and tree lined driveway lead to a selection of beautiful and unique venues, varying in size and style, to suit the size of the wedding you are planning.

Their magnificent Kerry Suite, accommodating up to 160 guests for a ceremony and wedding breakfast and up to 250 guests for an evening reception, includes its own private bar, courtyard garden and terrace, with spectacular views across open parkland to the woodland beyond.

For a smaller celebration, The Fitzmaurice Room, situated in the original farmhouse, can hold up to 50 guests for the ceremony and up to 24 for a seated wedding breakfast.

Alternatively, for the ultimate intimate celebration, The Old Dairy Office is the perfect spot for fine-dining for up to twelve people.


The estate has a strong catering team who can whip up a culinary storm of fine cuisine. Talk to our wedding coordinator to come up with an ideal menu (including a tasting) for you and your guests to enjoy on the day.

  • Mr and Mrs Pilgrim

    Outstanding day, everything we wanted. Ella was fantastic – couldn’t have done anything more for our big day. All staff very friendly and welcoming. Food was brilliant and served perfectly. Amazing venue, very clean and crisp. Felt very open and to a very high standard. Everything was perfect, nothing needed to be done by us on the day. Ella lee was an amazing Wedding Co-ordinator and Michael, who was with us all day, couldn’t of been any more helpful and attentive.

  • Peter Cleaver

    Our day was excellent, the staff were very attentive but not in your face, which made our day extra special. We found Ella to be professional and helpful in all respects. We would recommend her services to anyone. The maser off ceremonies was attentive and always on hand to help when needed. All the staff were excellent and helpful. The food was perfect and all guests enjoyed their meals. We would recommend the venue to anyone. We got good value and a lot more than we expected.

    Brilliant day. Michael ensured everything went to plan, he was really helpful all day. Ella has been the most helpful and supportive wedding co-ordinator we could have asked for. She made organising our wedding so easy. She was always accessible by email or phone through the whole year that we worked with her and nothing was too much effort. I cannot thank Ella enough for the support she has given us leading up to and on our big day, she is a credit to Bowood and I would highly recommend her to all of my friends and family. Michael was a star and was very welcoming. He was reassuring and supportive throughout the whole day. Lovely venue, lovely location, lovely team. Thank you for giving us such a memorable day.
