Outdoor Woodland Weddings

Outdoor Wedding

While our wedding barn is perfectly designed for a fabulous feast with dancing for up to 140, some cannot resist the allure of a canvass marquee in the garden. Getting married under the trees seems to be most popular way to go at West Lexham. With drinks, games and frolicking on the lawns before going inside for a celebratory meal and dance. We are happy to arrange for any type of tent to go on the lawn for those who love the open feel.

Create a festival Wedding

The diversity of our garden and wider grounds really means that you can create a wedding wonderland to play in. Why not row down the lake to the ceremony? You can have your service under the ancient copper beach with leaves so thick it is like a tent, or the even older London Plane tree, or in amongst the formal garden surrounded by topiary. Then have a wedding reception on the sunny lawns or by the pool. Why not do a photo shoot in the romantic folly we loving call the Shell House (please ask us about the story of its creation!). We have acres of space for you to gather and make merry.

Having planned festival and parties for most of their adult lives (and childhoods ;) we really know how to make your special day and flow into weekend, and so not stay just a day.

Wedding catering

The Wedding feast is a momentous occasion so lets make sure it is perfect. Our caterers have years of experience so can seamlessly fulfill every dream you have ever had. They know the site backwards so can serve food anywhere and make the experience more of an adventure than simply a meal.

Sleep over!

The best part of it is that everyone can stay for the weekend so you get more time for the whole party to bond. We can sleep up to 95 on site from luxury ensuite rooms, to holiday cottages, treehouses and bell tents. So you can have a warm up and a wind down together and use the Village Hall or the pool terrace for alternative party venues to keep people on their toes.

To start the relationship meet the team on about us.
