We’re thrilled to announce that our ceremony license now extends to the grand, front porch of Birdsall House and our temple, overlooking the lake. If you’ve been dreaming of an outdoor or garden wedding you will be aware that a legal ceremony venue in England must be a permanent structure with a roof, well both these stunning areas of our historic home fall under this requirement so we’re thrilled you can now choose them for your vows.

Our house, which has been the home of the Willoughby family since 1729, can host civil ceremonies in our dining room, Oval Room and ballroom as well as under our porch with your guests sitting directly in front of the house, or for smaller ceremonies you can say your vows in the temple which overlooks the lake with guests surrounding you just outside of it.

These are all in addition to the option of having a religious ceremony in the Church within our grounds.

Whichever you choose, there are then a number of options for you to celebrate saying ‘I do’, whether it’s canapes in the long hall followed by a wedding breakfast in the dining room or speeches in the ballroom. We only book one wedding for the weekend so whatever you choose Birdsall House is exclusively yours, with six luxury bedrooms for you and your guests too.
