Bride and groom kissing - looking through the trees

Intimate Weddings

For exclusivity, intimacy and elegance seek out this gem in the heart of Cheltenham. Manor by the Lake offers a glamorous, private, home-from-home escape that suits intimate weddings perfectly. What makes the venue stand out is its exclusivity and flexibility.

Intimately Yours

We understand that not everyone wants to be the centre of attention in front of hundreds of guests on their wedding day. For many, the option to celebrate with a select few and enjoy a private, intimate celebration with the most special people in their lives is preferable.

In our cosy and welcoming manor we invite you to celebrate your wedding day with total privacy. With exclusive use, you’re free to treat the place as if it were your own, make yourselves thoroughly at home, and not feel the slightest bit on show.

We’ll help you plan your ideal day, choosing a personal setting for your ceremony in either one of our atmospheric reception rooms, at the edge of our private lake, or in the stunning surroundings of our award-winning gardens and woodland. The Marguerite is particularly suited to smaller ceremonies; as the Manor’s library has capacity for up to 35 guests*, and with its painted ceiling and marble fireplace it is an elegant choice.

Our chefs will work with you to devise a menu and complement your catering with fine wines, cocktails and champagne. With smaller celebrations, there is less to plan, and fewer people to worry about, so you are free to truly enjoy both the build up and the day itself.

For friends and family who wish to stay overnight, the Manor has accommodation available for up to 24 guests in 12 en-suite bedrooms, including the Honeymoon Suite, so for smaller gatherings, you can all enjoy spending the night in our idyllic surroundings. It really becomes your home from home.

Whatever type of ceremony and celebration you have in mind, talk to one of our expert wedding planners today and let us help you turn your dreams into reality.

Freedom of the Manor- Quotes from our Couples

We all had such a good time. The freedom to use all the lovely spaces in the Manor meant it was a really relaxed occasion and everyone was really comfortable and happy.

Sarah Holliday

We were looking for a venue thats was grand for our wedding day but not so big that our small wedding would feel lost, the manor was perfect for this and the staff were all so personable, would highly recommend.

Mr & Mrs Edwards

From the moment we first saw Manor By The Lake we fell in love and were so pleased you welcomed our petite wedding, unlike so many other venues we had visited. The day went perfectly, we cannot thank you more.
