What I think of Chavenage House as a wedding venue
My first ever experience of a wedding at Chavenage House was back in 2007 when I had the wettest wedding day on record! It didn’t just rain that day, it monumentally poured and as a result flooded many places in Gloucestershire. Thankfully I did return since and the next time brought the sunshine with me.
As a venue Chavenage is very much a Country Manor House with rustic charm in bucket loads. It’s been used for period dramas, it’s lived in, yet you can have you’re wedding there too. Eclectic probably describes it well.
It’s well suited to winter weddings with open fires to keep you cosy during your escape to the country. It’s got a Chapel on site, or many wedding couples chose to use the nearby church of St Mary the Virgin and St Mary Magdalen in Tetbury.
For ‘dry’ and/or warmer weddings Chavenage has large grounds with good opportunities to get some beautiful couple portraits.
