Venue information

COVID-19 update: For the latest information about ceremonies, make sure you have read our guide regarding Ceremony restrictions during the pandemic.

Situated in the Grade I listed Edes House, this bright, 'golden' room on the first floor has a grand feel, with beautiful fireplaces and late Georgian chandeliers. There is also a Yamaha C3 baby grand piano available for use by a qualified pianist.

Although a larger room, it can perfectly accommodate any sized ceremony and is normally ideal for 20-80 guests.
