Euridge Manor Weddings Chippenham

Just a few miles from the historic city of Bath and nestled within the rolling countryside of the Cotswolds, you will find the home of Euridge Manor Weddings Chippenham. Surrounded by 3 acres of manicured gardens, Nikolette and Adam exchanged their vows in a spectacular outdoor ceremony.

About Euridge Manor Weddings Chippenham

The private grounds are licensed to hold civil ceremonies and partnerships in six equally unique locations.

Outdoors, there is the impressive Boathouse situated close to a wisteria-clad pergola and Italianate terrace. You may prefer the Castle Arch, with its crystal chandelier or one of Euridge’s favourite spots, the Portico.

Indoors, ceremonies can be held in the Cloister for an intimate gathering for 40 guests or in the Orangery for up to 120 people. For a larger, grand ceremony of up to 150 guests, then you would choose the magnificent Ballroom. Should you want something more traditional, there is a beautiful 12th Century Saxon stone church just two miles away, in Colerne.

Receptions can be held amongst the fountains and palm trees of the Orangery or under the golden chandeliers of the Ballroom. There is also plenty of accommodation on the estate for wedding guests wishing to stay overnight.

History of Euridge Manor

The Manor stands on the grounds of the explorer Sir Walter Raleigh’s old hunting lodge. The building, as it is now, was designed by garden designers and builders, Isabel and Julian Bannerman.

The design was based on a monastery-inspired transformation of the Wiltshire farmhouse at the heart of the estate.  Its owner is fashion magnate John Robinson, founder of the Jigsaw chain and his mammoth project took around a decade to complete. Mr Robinson bought the farmhouse and a 300-acre ‘two-overcoat’ farm – so called because it’s always a few degrees colder than anywhere around – in 1980. His plan was to create a sheltered, sunny courtyard, with paved areas for dining, and protected from the biting cold winds. The original farmhouse would form one corner and a number of ‘medieval’ monastry buildings, some left as ruined walls, would become the remaining sides of the square.

Every step and stone was hand-picked from different corners of the world to create a space that now tells a captivating story in every season of the year.

I was thrilled to be able to capture Nikolette and Adam’s magificient wedding and I hope you enjoy my images of their day.

If these images have given you inspiration then take a look at Sophie and Anthony’s wedding, again, set in spectacular surroundings.
