Hestercombe Gardens, Taunton

Hestercombe Gardens, Taunton Credit: Simon Biffen PhotographyThe happy couple can enjoy a choice of historic wedding venues within 50 acres of lovingly restored gardens, featuring lakes, light-dappled pathways and stunning views of the Blackdown Hills. The idyllic scenery is tended by a team of skilled gardeners all year round.

Let's celebrate! The Orangery (90 guests) is a beautiful hamstone building, designed by British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens. Licensed for ceremonies, it offers a picture-perfect setting for all styles of wedding and allows brides and grooms to enjoy a light-filled area before spilling out to enjoy drinks on the lawn.The Bampfylde Hall (150 guests) dates back to 1680. High ceilings and dramatic timber beams make it a fantastic place for a couple to enjoy their ceremony, wedding breakfast and party. The fairy-lit canopy emphasises its charm.For something a little different, couples can have an open-air wedding in the 18th-century temple (112 guests), which is perched high above the Pear Pond in the Landscape Gardens. A romantic hideaway, it boasts views across to Taunton Vale.

We love... Smaller weddings can be held within the rooms of Hestercombe House for a more intimate feel.
