"Where do we start?! Thank you for our dream wedding! Pennard House is stunning, you guys are amazing – nothing was too much trouble, you were great fun and so welcoming. You provided the perfect balance of freedom to achieve our ideas but guidance to logistically make it happen, Thank you!"
Offering you the most idyllic, country setting to celebrate your exclusive Wedding Day, Somerset wedding venue Pennard House is licensed for civil ceremonies so your entire day may be hosted in one location with no need for your guests to drive from place to place. Furthermore, we don’t do weddings on consecutive days, giving you the opportunity to arrive the night before and settle in, extending your wedding and making Pennard feel like your home. At Pennard House you can have your wedding that is completely unique to you in a beautiful, relaxed setting surrounded by friends and family.
There’s an indoor and outdoor space licensed for wedding ceremonies, or if you would like a church service, the picturesque 14th Century village church is just across our lawn and boasts the resonant peal of five bells, announcing your marriage to the world. The gardens also provide endless spaces for humanist ceremonies.
After the marriage ceremony, why not welcome your party with a drinks reception on the lawn or round the Victorian pool. Our south-facing lawns and gardens capture the very best of the English sunlight, all helping to provide scenic photo opportunities for an unforgettable wedding album. Your wedding breakfast is held in our newly renovated Coach House, offering a unique and unusual wedding venue. There’s ample room for 120 guests to sit and dine in comfort, savouring a superb, customised menu from one of our recommended caterers, and the dance floor and bar area offer a unique space for evening festivities.
Offering a blank canvas for you to plan exactly the wedding you want, we can help plan your day to match all your wishes and dreams, whether it’s a sparkling celebrity occasion in total seclusion, a quiet family affair or small intimate wedding or even something wild and wonderful – we can help provide whatever your heart desires. And we’ll be working quietly behind the scenes to save you any stress or strain.
Start your day being pampered in the stunning Orchard Room Bridal suite, our most sumptuous bedroom which is complimentary to you for the night of your wedding, complete with chandeliers, roll-top bath and exquisitely hand-painted murals by acclaimed artist Frederick Wimsett. Overlooking the gardens, it is the perfect place for the bride to get ready and the couple to stay overnight. Couples can also allocate rooms in the house for close friends or family, offering a truly home from home setting. And as we don’t do back to back weddings here, why not stay the night before the wedding too, and start the festivities with cocktails in the drawing room and a banquet meal in the dining room!
Our commitment is to make your wedding day a dream come true. Trust us to provide a magical setting with all the comforts of a country house wedding venue and a celebration atmosphere that is truly unforgettable. With complete flexibility to choose how your day will take place, we truly want you to have the wedding you want – your way.
