Sparkford Hall, Somerset wedding event photography - THE ULTIMATE QUIRKY VENUE, FOR A UNIQUELY PERFECT BIG DAY…

"We’re definitely not your typical wedding venue. Sure, we can host a traditional white wedding reception, just like anyone else, but if you’re looking for something daring, different and decadent, well, that’s right up our alley!

The grade II listed house and grounds can be entirely yours for the day, the weekend or the whole week.

Our grounds feature rolling parkland, kitchen garden, paddocks and an apple orchard which all are inhabited by our colored sheep, shaggy Shetland ponies, chickens, and lots of other wildlife.

We’re licensed to hold marriage ceremonies in 3 separate areas: The Library (25 guests), The Main Hall (80 guests), The Barn (300 guests). Alternatively, we can host your reception and party after getting hitched at the local church… you dream it we can do it because all persuasions, religions, and beliefs are welcome at Sparkford

A lazy reception lunch amidst autumn leaves on the grounds, perhaps a more formal sit down wedding breakfast in our main hall, attach a marquee to the house (up to 250) or fill our barn (up to 300) with all your guests for a huge banquet. Afterward why not a party in the subterranean club into the early hours…

All catering styles available from our amazing list of local suppliers."
