Our real weddings 2023

2nd Oct 2023

While we only launched as a wedding venue five years ago, in summer 2023, we have hosted a wedding nearly every weekend! It’s meant there’s been such a lovely atmosphere across the estate – full of joy and anticipation.

Despite being busy, we’re proud that it never feels like a conveyor belt here. We only ever book one wedding per weekend so our couples never have to share the estate. We also have the space and flexibility to allow couples to make their wedding bespoke to them.

To prove just how individual you can make your special day, we thought we’d share five unique real weddings that have taken place at Birdsall in 2023.

You’ll probably notice that couples chose different locations across the estate and house to say I do.  That’s something we love here at Birdsall, come rain or shine – we are able to make your ceremony really special.

For their day, Tabitha and Robbie threw a quirky, fun wedding that everyone said was so ‘them’. They chose to have an outdoor ceremony within our twelfth century ruins, which was captured by live painter Sophie Brigland. What a way to capture the memory!

Guests then moved on into the ballroom for the wedding breakfast, with each table adorned in beautiful creations from Rose and Spade.

Lauren and Henry

Lauren and Henry stuck to tradition and said their vows in the Church within our grounds, surrounded by beautiful florals from Queens Flowers.

They then surprised everyone with The Undercover Waiters during their wedding breakfast – a real talking point!

One of our gorgeous couples wanted their wedding to reflect an ‘enchanted secret garden’. Of course, having hosted a week long production of The Secret Garden back in May, we were really excited to see how Bureau Botany would meet the brief and we were not disappointed! How gorgeous does our dining room look?

Evie and George

In contrast, Evie and George, who chose to get married in our dining room, took an international, casual approach to food with El Kantina Food Truck. This was a hit with guests and we love it when couples do something quirky like this!

Ryan and Emily

Finally, don’t you love the effect of these smoke sticks in Ryan and Emily’s wedding? They just go to show that although we’re steeped in heritage, historical doesn’t have to mean stuffy and serious.
