With the house and the grounds always exclusive to brides and grooms and their guests, the venue has earned an outstanding reputation for hosting all kinds of special events over the last eight years.

Coombe Lodge’s philosophy is simple – they want you and your guests to have an amazing day, beyond comparison with any other. From your very first consultation, the coordinators are dedicated to helping you plan every moment, with a warm, welcoming and engaging approach. Add to this an in-house team of expert chefs who revel in creating gorgeous cuisine with local produce. Explore the magnificent and romantic building for yourselves, which so perfectly blends history with luxurious styling, and wander through the charming gardens that will complete such a splendid backdrop for your special day.

History

Designed by the architect Sir George Oatley, creator of many distinguished buildings in and around Bristol, Coombe Lodge was originally built between 1928 and 1932, and became home to the notable Wills family for the next 30 years. Since then the house has been carefully restored into a gorgeous contemporary venue, whilst still remaining faithful to its elegance of old.

Facilities

Whether you have 50 or 160 guests, Coombe Lodge presents a great choice of locations in which to hold your civil ceremony.

The Billiard Room

The quaint Billiard Room is fully licensed for civil marriages, and can easily hold 90 seated guests.

Civil Ceremony Capacity - 90 Guests

Outdoor Veranda

If you would prefer an outdoor wedding, with the capability to seat many guests, their outside ceremony option under the charming veranda is perfect for summery ceremonies.

Civil Ceremony Capacity - 160 Guests

The Music Room

Ideal for larger gatherings, your entire day, from ceremony to evening party, can be celebrated in the magnificent Music Room.

Civil Ceremony Capacity - 160 Guests
Wedding Breakfast Capacity - 160 Guests
Evening Reception Capacity - 200 Guests

Catering

The care and imagination taken to prepare Coombe Lodge's menus is paramount - the credit for this lies with their team of skilled chefs who take delight in creating a tempting selection of delicious menus with mouth-watering dishes. After your ceremony is over, enjoy some celebratory drinks and a delicious selection of canapés, choosing from an array of meat, fish and vegetarian options. Alternatively, how about a garden party styled miniature afternoon tea to delight your guests?

A unique idea for the wedding breakfast is the Valencienne Menu, in which each course will be served as a banquet to the table on platters, allowing your guests to help themselves to dishes you have chosen. Some of the platters include Italian antipasti, Somerset platters, Spanish tapas nibbles or Persian delicacies, and this can be an ideal choice if you do not want to commit to just one dish for your guests. Alternatively, you could opt for a traditional wedding breakfast using either the Mechlin or Reticella menu. The chefs also offer equally delectable buffet options, always welcome at the evening party.

Accommodation

Once you have tired from all the dancing, you won't have to go too far to rest your head! Coombe Lodge features 12 luxurious ensuite rooms, ideal for your closest friends and family to stay overnight. The Garden House located in the idyllic grounds of Coombe Lodge can offer your guests a further 10 bedrooms. There is certainly further accommodation of all types and styles available nearby for more guests.

  • Mr and Mrs Bail - 4th October 2019

    Unbelievable venue and staff! Had the most amazing day! Nothing was to much and they checked throughout the day that everything was going as we wanted. They decorated the place perfectly and were constantly on hand to make our day special. Highly recommended and my wife and I cannot thank them enough. Tom and Martha were brilliant throughout the whole process and made our day perfect!

  • Sophie and Patrick's Wedding - 16th September

    What an absolutely wonderful day yesterday. As you know, Patrick and Sophie (and I) fell in love with Coombe Lodge over a year ago. Not just because of what a stunning location and venue it is but also because of you and your team's professionalism, attentiveness, polite, courteous, friendly and nothing is too much trouble approach from day one. We can't thank you, Martha, and your team enough for guiding us up to and throughout a fantastic and memorable wedding day. It truly was amazing thanks to all the hard work put in by you and all of your team. We also greatly appreciated that you swapped your day off for us too! All our guests loved the venue, food and celebrations but most importantly Patrick and Sophie loved every minute of a truly magical and memorable wedding day - "the best day of their lives". Thank you and your team so, so much - we got there in the end and - boy - it was certainly worth it!

  • Mr and Mrs Wainwright - 9th August 2019

    To every single member of staff that worked on our special day - we just wanted to say how truly grateful we are for all everyone did to make our day so incredible. Everything was perfect from the very start through to when we left after breakfast. You all worked so hard, nothing was too much trouble and you were all so professional and friendly. We can't thank you enough for making us feel so special and ensuring our guests had everything they needed. You are a credit to Coombe Lodge and I hope you realise how much we appreciate your hard work and kindness. With lots of love from Trisha and Simon X

  • Mr and Mrs Thomas - 17th July 2019

    I cannot even begin to say how thankful and happy we are that we had our wedding at Coombe Lodge! From start to finish we have been overwhelmed by their passion, organisation, support and kindness. Our wedding day was everything that we dreamed it could be. Our guests were amazed with the beauty of Coombe Lodge, the attentiveness off staff and everyone is raving about the food. Martha, you are incredible! Your "above and beyond" stance on everything since we began to liaise has left me awe struck. You are too kind and generous and will always have a special place in our hearts. If we could do it all over again, we would do exactly the same. I'm only sad we can't get married there again! Much love to you all, thank you so so much.

  • Mr and Mrs Sheldon - 7th July 2019

    There was never a doubt in my mind I wasn't not getting married here... it was convincing my other half that I had to do. As you can imagine, it took no convincing at all! The venue speaks for itself; everything about it is beautiful. Every single person we dealt with from start to finish was amazing, and nothing was too much hassle. The food... WOW (that white chocolate mousse, best dessert ever!) Clara, you were amazing Throughout the whole wedding, just popping up making sure everyone and everything was ok and most importantly that we were ok. Even the little things like making sure we had food saved back for us! Thank you so much Coombe Lodge you really are pros!

  • Helen and Andy Mansell - 30th May 2019

    We would like to say a great big thank you to Martha and the team at Coombe Lodge who were absolutely brilliant hosting my daughter's wedding. We all had a fantastic time and nothing was to much trouble. You all work so hard thank you for making the day so special.

  • Mr and Mrs Holbourn - 18th May 2019

    We had the most prefect wedding day at Coombe Lodge. The staff were amazing, the food was the best we have ever had at a wedding (everyone commented on it) and the scenery and dressing of the venue was second to none. The whole process could not have been more smooth in the run up and everyone was so lovely and helpful. The day was just amazing. You will never regret your wedding being at Coombe Lodge!

  • Mr & Mrs Higgins - 12th May 2019

    From the minute we stepped into this beautiful venue we knew this was the perfect place for us to get married. We were made to feel very welcome and while we sat and talked with the wedding planner we watched the staff set up for that day's wedding. The staff have everything organised to the last detail, they are very professional and nothing is too much trouble. Our wedding was in May this year and it was perfect, everything we imagined it to be and more. Tom and his team did everything on the day for us just as we had planned. Tom was so calm ajd helpful and just the best; I'll never be able to thank him enough for all his help, particularly his sewing skills!
    All our guests loved it and said it was the best wedding they'd been too and the food was just wow! I wish we could do it all over again!

  • Mr and Mrs Northwood - 30th March 2019

    We had the most incredible wedding day at Coombe Lodge! So impressed with the hard work of the staff, particularly Clara and Jasmine, who went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect and exactly as we had imagined! So many comments through the day about the beautiful venue and the delicious food! 100% would recommend!

  • Rachel Spiers - 25/10/2016

    We got married here on Saturday and it was absolutely perfect, in fact more than we ever could of dreamed of! Davy and his team worked tirelessly to ensure that the day ran perfectly and that we and all of our guests were catered for to the highest standard (and often beyond!). The venue was decorated beautifully with attention to detail in even the smallest of areas, Coombe Lodge is an absolute dream come true for any bride and groom and we will cherish the memories made here forever x

  • Ellie Kerry

    Our wedding at Coombe Lodge was a dream come true! It is a premium venue with stunning grounds, Michelin starred food and an amazing team to help make your day go without a hitch! I can't recommend Coombe Lodge highly enough, it is absolutely stunning and you can really make the venue your own. All of our guests said how much they loved the venue and the food! Our wedding day was freezing cold, but the lush roaring fire kept our guests toasty! Eric the events manager was in charge on our big day, he was great and put our minds at ease so we could get on with enjoying ourselves! Stunning bedrooms, and a yummy breakfast as husband and wife.
