Botleys Mansion Ceremonies & Receptions

Wedding Ceremonies

There are several rooms at Botleys for you to host your ceremony and reception depending on the size of your guest list.

Botleys Mansions is a licensed wedding venue with several spaces to celebrate your civil ceremony, should you choose to get married here. Internally there are two options; the Green Room is a romantic and intimate space, full of pastel hues and gentle tones. The glass-roofed Atrium, with its grand staircase and sparkling chandeliers, is a spectacular space for larger guest numbers.

Intimate wedding ceremonies in the Green Room

The Green Room, on the Piano Nobile (raised ground floor) has a capacity for
up to 131 guests (including the couple and registrar(s)). The room is bright
and airy and decorated a soft green with warm oak flooring. The Green Room has a striking centrepiece chandelier and intricately carved
ceilings. The acoustics in the Green Room are excellent, which make it perfect for a string quartet or harpist as background music during the ceremony.
The Green Room, along with the rest of the Piano Nobile, was
refurbished using traditional and original materials in the late 1990s.

Large wedding ceremonies in the Atrium

The glass Atrium at Botleys is a more modern take on the wedding ceremony room and is perfect for up to 250 seated guests. The wedding party enters via the central staircase that cascades down into the ceremony.

Outdoor wedding ceremonies

Temple Gardens

Couples wishing to get married outside during the warmer months can opt to say ‘I do’ in the beautiful Temple Gardens. The double doors in the Temple Wing of the Atrium lead out to an aisle pathway through the Temple Garden with guests seated either side for an al fresco ceremony in the sunshine.

Mansion Lawn

With the changes to outdoor ceremony legislation in 2020 set to remain, Botleys has introduced a new ceremony backdrop on the Mansion Lawn. With greenery and flowers weaving through the gazebo, this pretty addition has been very popular so far.

Wedding receptions

Inside, the modernity of the Atrium complements the more traditional lean of the Piano Nobile and, with careful planning, it is possible to enjoy both elements of the mansion during the natural flow of your wedding day.

Small wedding receptions in the Green Room

For wedding breakfasts for up to 80 guests, the Green Room offers a traditional entertaining experience for small wedding celebrations. White table linens complement the gentle décor and abundance of natural light. After your intimate reception, enjoy the rest of the country mansion with your friends and family as your celebrations continue.

Wedding Receptions in the Atrium

The central Atrium is perfect for any numbers up to and including 140 guests – the Atrium wings can be opened up to add capacity for a further 110 guests. If you decide not to use the entire space, then keeping part of the room closed during the wedding breakfast offers the ability to open up later on, revealing the evening’s entertainment. This also allows your DJ or band to set up out of sight, making the transition from the banquet to the first dance, seamless. If you’ve opted for your ceremony in the Green Room, then having your wedding breakfast and reception in the Atrium breaks up the day nicely and allows you to make full use of the venue. Not only that, but picture yourselves having just been introduced as Mr and Mrs, making your first entrance together as a married couple and walking down the staircase to a room filled with your closest friends all cheering you in. That moment is one that you won’t forget in a hurry.

If you’re a couple with too many friends, then not to worry as the atrium can hold up to 500 guests for your reception – just picture that dance floor!

Fireworks at Botleys Mansion

Fireworks for your wedding reception are possible at Botleys Mansion, subject to discussion with and approval from the local council.

Late Licence

Botleys Mansion has the advantage of a late licence for entertainment and for serving alcohol. This means you can extend your wedding reception celebrations into the early hours without fear of disturbing any neighbours. Furthermore given that you have Botleys on a exclusive use basis, we will always serve nightcaps to any overnight guests once the non-residents have departed.
