It is easy to see why so many couples fall in love with beautiful Rookery Manor. Set in the heart of the Somerset countryside, this glorious 16th century manor is the perfect place to say 'I do'.
In fact, with no less than four unique marriage rooms licensed for civil ceremonies and partnerships, the only slight hitch is that the bride and groom may find themselves spoilt for choice!
One of the most popular settings is the romantic Rose Room – a lovingly restored glass gazebo that is a focal point of our award-winning gardens, set in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Couples who wish to tie the knot in an open-air ceremony will love the Island Gazebo, where the bride can make a magical entrance over a wooden bridge or even by sailing across the stunning lake. For a truly grand affair, there is also the magnificent Desborough Suite, festooned with ivory drapes to resemble a grand marquee, or the sophisticated Iris Suite – each sparkling under a starlit ceiling.
Weddings can be booked seven days a week for civil ceremonies, Asian ceremonies, alternative celebrations and civil partnerships. Rookery Manor's chefs can cater for up to 400 guests at a seated reception, ranging from a simple buffet to a five-course banquet.
