We are dedicated to delivering exceptional service and ensuring couples feel as special as they should on their big day. That’s why we only ever hold one wedding per weekend, no matter what time of year. That way you can be sure to have our full dedication to your big day.
Your dream wedding venue
Kingston Bagpuize House has several options for ceremonies on site. We are licenced to hold ceremonies on the front lawn, with the House as your back drop and the avenue of Wellingtonias on either side the vista is incredible. You can also host your ceremony under the Pavillion in the Woodland Garden surrounded by incredible foliage and greenery, the maximum capacity for this is 120.
Should you want to hold your ceremony inside the House, the spectacular Drawing Room is perfect, our inside ceremonies can hold up to 97 guests. More information can be found below.
If you wish to hold a blessing elsewhere on site we would be delighted to show you the many options from West Park, to the Wildlife Lake as well as various other beautifully manicured spots throughout the Estate.
Due to the size of the Estate, if you would like to hold your Wedding Breakfast or Party elsewhere on site there are several different locations that you are welcome to use and we have a list of marquee, stretch tent and tipi suppliers that we can recommend for every event.
One of the most popular options for those getting married at Kingston Bagpuize House in the summer months is a lawn wedding.
The ceremony is held in the doorway to the Drawing Room which is elevated by steps and wedding guests take their seats on the front lawn of the house.
This is a great way to make the most of the stunning house, as well as the beautiful gardens.
Getting married on the lawn gives you the option to have your reception either in the house, or in the stunning marquee.

“We can not thank you enough for all you did to make our dream wedding run so smoothly. From the start of planning right up to the big day, nothing that we asked was too much. The pride and passion that you put into your job was reflective to the last second and made us feel so comfortable that our wedding was in the most capable hands.”
Keith & Leanne
“… “thank-you” doesn’t really seem like a good enough word to express our gratitude, but I guess that’s all we have to say. A HUGE thank you to everyone.”
“A huge, huge thank you to you and your team for the most perfect day. Everything was amazing and our guests kept saying how fantastic everything was. The food was outstanding – no chance of us being too nervous to eat with food like that, absolutely divine. All the staff on the day were wonderful…”
