Weddings at the Court
More than any other type of event, North Cadbury Court caters for weddings – ranging from small intimate ceremonies to larger weddings that cater for up to 150 guests. We can accommodate 80 staying overnight, with local B&Bs we can recommend. There is no corkage charge and no night curfew on parties inside the house.
We are licensed to host civil wedding ceremonies in the house and anywhere outdoors. If you’re dreaming of a stunning venue your search is over. North Cadbury Court’s services and facilities will make that celebration you’ve always dreamed of a reality. We don’t charge corkage and there are no set packages.
The court has a unique character – steeped in British history yet relaxed and incredibly comfortable. Stunning wood panelled rooms for meals, dancing and all types of events lead to cosy lounges with huge fireplaces, and then sweeping staircases take you up to floor after floor of beautiful bedrooms and amazing bathrooms – each one totally individual and with stunning decor.
“We fell in love with North Cadbury Court the moment we saw it. There are a lot of stunning venues in Somerset, but none have the wow factor like North Cadbury Court.”
North Cadbury Court and its grounds are yours for your exclusive use and, unlike a hotel, you can design your dream wedding down to the finest detail. It is a venue where you can make your stay your own with our guidance, we also have a couple of excellent independent planners who can take the strain (and time involved) away from you if you prefer.
You can have a civil ceremony in the house in either the Ballroom or the North Hall which can hold 150 guests and is ideal for grand entrance of the bride from the Oak Staircase. It is equally possible to get married in St Michael’s Church, situated next door to North Cadbury Court, which has its own entrance in to the church grounds, but qualification is required, so please discuss this with our team.
Weather permitting you could also get married outdoors within the grounds of the estate, either at our garden gazebo or by the lake, they both offer beautiful outside settings for when you come to say ‘I do..’
“The whole experience was just amazing, all the staff were just fantastic and the venue was stunning and atmospheric in the weather that we had.”
Your Dream Wedding
After the Ceremony
After the ceremony, the lawns and terrace of the Court provide the perfect spot for drinks receptions during fine weather. If staying indoors the Morning Room, the library and the North Hall all make for really lovely spaces to enjoy drinks and canapés.
With two breathtaking function rooms inside the house, you have the choice of either the Ballroom (seats 150) or North Hall (seats 80) to enjoy your wedding breakfast. After the celebration meal you can dance in our Ballroom, the North Hall or the basement disco. We also have a fun casino in the cellar for you to enjoy.
To help you with all this choice you also have support from our experienced events team. You will have a planning meeting on site and a virtual meeting or two in advance of your big day. They will guide you to help you plan and organise your stay including catering, flowers, music, entertainment, and activities. One of the team will also be here to oversee everything on your big day and then two evening managers will look after guests late into the evening.
“Thank you so much for all your assistance from the very start almost 18 months ago to the day itself yesterday, we are so grateful for your running around behind the scenes to make it run so smoothly.”
Full of Surprises
In the heart of the countryside, the extensive gardens and parkland offer endless space to wander and to enjoy magical days and evenings with friends or family. The house itself is sumptuous and truly historic, yet at the same time a place where you can relax and feel totally at home.
Full of surprises which will delight you – we offer a range of amenities and stunning rooms featuring beautiful four poster beds, antique furnishings and art. In the cellars there is even a secret disco and grand casino! If you are lucky enough to discover North Cadbury Court, you and your guests will treasure the memories forever and never want to leave.
“Really hope we get to come back to NCC in the future – there are so many activities and parts of the house we just didn’t have time to explore as the weekend went so fast!”
