East Pennard, Shepton Mallet, BA46TP

Pennard House is a beautiful, family-owned Georgian Manor House located in the rolling Somerset countryside. Set in secluded gardens and surrounded by meadows, woodlands and cider orchards, Pennard House is a magical setting for a wedding and the epitome of dreamy English elegance.

Pennard House offers a variety of unique options for weddings, allowing the bride and groom to tailor make their day to suit their own personal wishes. Everything is within walking distance, so the entire day can be hosted in one exquisite location with no need for guests to drive from place to place.

For civil ceremonies there is a grand licensed room in the house with seating for up to 80 people, complete with antique mirrors and chandeliers. We also have an outdoor ceremony space on the croquet lawn which can accommodate 120 guests.
Church weddings can be held in the picturesque 14th Century village church which is just a short walk across the lawn and can accommodate up to 150 guests.

Following the wedding ceremony, walk with your guests to the large south facing lawn in front of the house, complete with rose gardens and Victorian lake. Drinks and canapés can be served while guests roam the garden to the sound of acoustic music. The gardens provide the perfect setting for a unique drinks reception, and endless photo opportunities in the secret haunts and hideaways.

The wedding breakfast is held in the newly renovated C18th Coach House with capacity to 120 people. The Coach House is beautifully finished in neutral colours, providing a blank canvas for the bride and groom to decorate. There is a large, open dining area which provides an ideal venue for guests to sit and dine in comfort, and a separate bar, dance floor and individual seating areas. You are welcome to have further evening guests too if you'd like, and in total for the Coach House we can have 180 people.

For accommodation, each couple has complimentary use of the beautiful Bridal suite in Pennard House, so that the bride has somewhere to get ready and the couple have somewhere nearby to sleep. Further B&B accommodation is available in grand and thoughtfully decorated bedrooms, while in the summer further guests can stay in fully furnished handmade 16ft tipis. There are 9 bedrooms, and 2 tipis on site, accommodating a total of 22 guests.

Couples can access the venue the night before to decorate before the big day, provided you are staying with us here at the house. Our aim is for your wedding day to happen in a magical, unforgettable venue while also feeling like a home away from home.

"We just wanted to send you a quick email to say how much fun we had on Wednesday and how much we appreciated all your help and effort to organise the day. Everyone else has been telling how much fun they had and you could tell by how quiet everyone was on Thursday morning that they weren't lying! "

"We got married here in September and it was the most wonderful experience. The whole team were fabulous and very accommodating. It's a stunning venue and they worked with us to create an individualised, and beautiful weekend. They work very closely with the church (at the bottom of the garden!) and the caterer Caroline Gent, which makes the experience (of wedding planning) much more enjoyable and stress free!"
