Wedding venue in the heart of Wiltshire : Bradley House

We know that when you are looking for your perfect wedding venue, a number of qualities are likely to influence your decision. This may include peaceful rolling countryside with easy links to national transport networks. You may want the beauty, sophistication and status of a country manor house to be a mainstay in the celebration of your wedding.

If you are looking for such a venue, then the pastoral countryside of Wiltshire and the stately home of Bradley House might be perfect for you.

 

We’ve done a bit of research into what Bradley House has to offer, and what better way to start than with a testimonial from a real bride:-

Caroline Gregory – December 2010

Firstly I want to say thank you again so much for all your help with our wedding. It was the most incredible weekend and the wedding day was truly amazing. A day we will never forget!

Everyone who you provided to work all over the weekend was excellent. In particular Charlie (who was with us most of the weekend) was like an extra family member, he was really calm, friendly and polite. Clay-pigeon shooting was a great idea for guys in the morning to keep them busy; we even lost a few girls to it! They loved it.

All in all, it was the best weekend and wedding we could ever have asked for. Your help in planning the whole event was phenomenal; there are not many people who create a spreadsheet to your precise standards! We can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us in terms of planning, recommending suppliers and helpful advice every time we met with you.

Very best wishes,

Caroline


 

Sounds divine! If it’s status you are looking for, then Bradley House’s 300 years of history and its long line of resident Dukes of Somerset should more than fulfil this category. This is not to say that the venue is too stuffy and posh; in fact, it is a perfect blend of a relaxed country-family-house feel, sharpened with a discernible regal etiquette and style. But expect to find fascinating memorabilia of the Duke’s family history dotted around the place – and it’s this willingness to share its memories that reinforces Bradley House’s uniquely warm and welcoming atmosphere.

 

 

As the bridal review above shows, the staff at Bradley House are very accommodating, and the Events Team are on hand to help you through every aspect of your special day. This Georgian manor house sleeps 24 adults itself, ensuite and all. Each luxury bedroom differs greatly from the others, something you just can’t attain in venues such as mainstream hotels.

Bradley House’s dining room is the most formal room in the house, yet still manages to remain unstuffy but polite. Its polished oak floor, panelled walls and elaborate fireplace lavishes dignity upon a room licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 100 people – and the room itself can later accommodate 60 people for dinner. There are boredom-dissolving rooms such as a music and drawing room, and even a heated outside swimming pool! Not to forget the manor’s beautiful grounds and coach-house.

 

 

Visitors are welcome to bring their own alcohol, and there is no corkage fee. Clients can choose from a choice of caterers that the venue has to recommend, supply their own bar together with a caterer or on their own completely, or (as many have done) with help from local ‘happy helpers’. The house is located in the rural village of Maiden Bradley, just a few miles from the A303 and within easy reach of Bath, Salisbury and Bristol.

 

 

All in all, this is a very relaxed venue, from the policies and staff of the house to the atmosphere of the building itself; a truly scrumptious find in the countryside of Wiltshire.
