5 Great Reasons for an Intimate Wedding

The thought of organising a large wedding, with a long guest list, endless preparations and the cost of a nice venue sometimes has couples giving up on the idea before they even start. If this is you, we have an answer that might just fit the bill. The Manor By The Lake Intimate Wedding.

The Intimate Wedding allows you to enjoy your special day in the exclusive surroundings of one of the Cotswolds’ most prestigious venues, in complete privacy without costing the earth. Here’s why it makes so much sense.

1. Guests

wedding-main-gallery-260 x 247As the name implies the Intimate Wedding keeps your ceremony and wedding breakfast list to just 24 people. No more worrying about offending friends, as people do understand when they’re told it’s just going to be a small family event. You will be able to invite a wider circle of friends to the evening reception, but keeping the ceremony and wedding breakfast small will allow you to relax with your chosen guests at the Manor and really enjoy the spectacular food we have to offer.

An intimate Wedding also allows you to have your wedding breakfast in one of the other palatial rooms in the Manor House, each with fine furnishings and splendid views over the gardens, you will be spoilt for choice. By keeping things small you can reduce the amount of work involved in planning, sending invitations and decorations. Let us help you with the details and this could be a planning dream come true.

2.  Cost-effective

If you are watching your budget, obviously, with smaller numbers, considerable savings can be made. This is perfect for you if you thought Manor By The Lake was out of reach. Yes, you get the use of the whole Manor, Gardens, Rooms, the West-wing Ballroom in the evening, the Rock Bar suite and all of the bedrooms and suites just as you would for a larger wedding, but with the smaller numbers it will feel more like a luxurious home from home.

Saving on budget may allow you to treat yourself to that very special honeymoon destination you thought was out of reach, or you can put the savings towards setting up your new home together. Whichever you choose you know it’s a great option.

3.  Relax and Enjoy

Indulge in some quality time with family in the finest of surroundings or really enjoy the company of special friends who you may not have seen for some time; unlike a large wedding, which can be a very busy affair, if you have guests that have travelled a great distance, this is a great opportunity to show them what they mean to you.

With an Intimate Wedding your day will feel even more luxurious, with our staff on hand to wait on your every need. Put your feet up, have a walk by the lake, relax in the Manor’s beautiful gardens or on the outdoor terrace in the sun. It’s your day so enjoy it to the full.

4.  Flexibility

Having a smaller guest list at an Intimate Wedding allows much greater flexibility with room layouts. Enjoy the ceremony in any of the Manor’s beautiful rooms, under the ornate Arches or at the Lakeside Pavilion. Arrange the rooms how you wish; the Maximilian lends itself to a gorgeous lounge, the Lyderick a fine alternative as a ceremony room and the Library a superb drawing room. Your day – your choice.

When your evening guests arrive, you can choose to continue in the Manor House, party in the Rock Bar or take the celebration to a whole new level in the West-wing Ballroom – ask about evening entertainment and our creative evening food options.

5.  The Overnight Experience

Room-1-300x250At the end of your day retire to the Library or the Rock Bar for late night drinks then you and your closest guests can enjoy the luxury of 12 fabulous bedrooms and suites in the Manor House, each one decorated in a different style to suit a variety of tastes.
