In the midst of Somerset's picturesque countryside, Pennard House is an elegant late Georgian mansion, offering the perfect setting for luxurious and peaceful all-inclusive weddings. The venue of choice for several high fashion Vogue and Marie Claire photo-shoots, this enchanting manor house is surrounded by 130 acres of beautiful woodlands, magical meadows, orchards and immaculately-kept gardens.

Pennard House is licensed to host civil marriage and partnership ceremonies inside for up to 80 guests or you can get married outside in their beautiful Garden Pavilion. There's a lovely 14th-century church located in the grounds for couples preferring a Christian wedding service. A complimentary bridal suite is included with every booking, and all guests are welcome to stay over in the house's beautifully decorated suite of bedrooms, or the venue has 16ft tipis in the ground for the more adventurous!


This elegant 18th-century English manor house has been welcoming its guests for centuries. Featuring a large central hall, grand reception rooms, luxurious, spacious bedrooms and magical, atmospheric grounds, Pennard House is a truly exquisite backdrop for unforgettable wedding celebrations.

Wandering out into the mansion's stunning grounds you will find peaceful ponds, an enchanting rose garden, a freshwater pool, beautiful Victorian gardens and 50 acres of working apple orchards producing the iconic local Somerset cider!


Dedicated staff at Pennard House work with individual budgets and wedding themes to create wonderfully unique events. As the venue is licensed to host civil marriage and partnership ceremonies, entire wedding celebrations can be held at the house, from the ceremony and a champagne reception through to a customised wedding breakfast and a spectacular evening party.

After your civil or religious ceremony has taken place, champagne and canapés can be served on the lawn whilst you capture some striking wedding photographs as the sun goes down. Delightful wedding breakfasts take place in the recently renovated 18th-century Coach House, which can comfortably seat up to 120 guests. Fully kitted out with state-of-the-art sound and lighting equipment, the Coach House is also an ideal location for evening receptions of up to 200.

Pennard House can be booked exclusively, and wedding parties often choose to stay over the night before the wedding to enjoy a relaxed meal and soak up the character of this glorious estate. And when the evening reception celebrations have drawn to a close, newlyweds can retire to a luxurious bridal suite, and guests to one of many elegant bedrooms, or to a handmade tipi in the grounds.


Pennard House currently work with three brilliant caterers who can tailor their menus to suit your tastes and budget. You may select one of these catering teams for your wedding here.

    We got married here in September and it was the most wonderful experience. The whole team were fabulous and very accommodating. It's a stunning venue and they worked with us to create an individualised, and beautiful weekend. They work very closely with the church (at the bottom of the garden!) and the caterer Caroline Gent, which makes the experience (of wedding planning) much more enjoyable and stress free!
