An enchanting 15th century manor house, set in secluded gardens, Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons is hard to beat as a wedding venue. Its founder, iconic chef Raymond Blanc, brings French flair to this outstanding hotel deep in the Oxfordshire countryside. Choosing from one of the gastronomic menus devised by him makes for a very special celebration. To top it off, couples can commission chef pâtissier Benoit Blin to create a traditional French croque-en-bouche “Pièce Montée” wedding cake. It’s no wonder that Le Manoir recently won Best UK Hotel in The Times and Sunday Times Travel Awards for the seventh year running.
English Country Garden
The team here create weddings to suit every wish list. “From the moment we meet our couple, we listen to every word, allowing us to create the most memorable day.” This can range from the most intimate ceremonies to larger parties with exclusive use of the house. Whether it’s a wintry affair by the glowing fire or a midsummer night’s dream-style celebration in the exquisite gardens, a wedding here is bound to conjure a certain irresistible romance on this special day.
Every wedding should be unique; some choose to lead their guests through orchards for a blessing or a champagne reception in the wildflower meadow. The Hartley Botanic Glasshouse, in the heart of the vegetable and herb gardens, is perfect for a small celebration during the day or by lantern light in the evening.
Come winter, there are roaring fires, twinkling lights and candles, while the in-house florist can turn any room into a mystical wonderland with her seasonal displays. The Belle Epoque Conservatory has a private entrance with doors opening to an enchanting walled garden lined with elegant borders and leading to the original 15th century gates.
Two Michelin Stars
When the day draws to a close, guests can revel in the luxury of one of the 32 individually designed suites.
The award-winning Le Manoir is the only hotel restaurant to have achieved and maintained its two Michelin star status for 35 years, and the only property outside London to sustain five AA rosettes over the same period of time.
The team arrange every detail needed for a showstopping wedding—from bespoke menus to music and flowers... All you have to do is enjoy your special day.
