Information For Old Bridge

Old Bridge is a 16th Century Elizabethan manor house, located in rural south Somerset. Surrounded by two acres of enchanting wooded grounds and gardens, it is the perfect backdrop for your special day

We offer wedding ceremonies at any time of the year - in the great hall of the house, where seating is possible for up to 75, or outside by the front Porch, where numbers are unlimited.

From May to September, our magnificent marquee is available for receptions. Seating up to 200, with wooden floor, lining, carpet, heating, dimmable crystal chandeliers, up-lighting and fairy lights throughout, stage and dance floor, catering section, tables and chairs - it is ready for you to arrange and decorate as you wish.

The elegant gardens and wooded area are for your guests to enjoy and there are many photo opportunities to catch those special memories.

There is plenty of parking, all level, so everywhere is 'disabled friendly' and we have proper loos, including for disabled and baby changing.

We very much encourage you to arrange the décor both in the marquee and out around the garden if you wish, the catering of your choice, and of course the musical entertainment. And there are no corkage charges here.

You will have exclusive use of the marquee, gardens and grounds with access to the venue at least the day before to prepare and install everything you want, and also on the day after to clear down and collect any belongings.

We want to offer you a high quality and unique bespoke experience in a friendly flexible atmosphere, and that’s what you will find. No hidden extras - what you see is what you get, and no VAT.

We have some fantastic reviews from our Brides and Grooms, please take a read...

Top Wedding Tips

Think outside the box – do not feel constrained by ideas of a ‘conventional’ wedding reception. These days, anything is possible and we can help you make it possible.

Be careful not to over-cater – we have seen a lot of wastage particularly with evening food – think about cooked-on-demand food like wood fired pizzas, crepes or burgers as an alternative.

Children get bored at weddings, and then they get up to mischief – consider paying someone to entertain them during the day, or at least during the speeches.

Meet the Owner

John & Liz Blake

We are the owners of Old Bridge and started our wedding business after our eldest daughter got married here in 2010. John has recently retired from Danone (Cow&Gate) and we have built up the business with the additional time he now has at home. Liz still works part time for the NHS, and is very much involved with the business - in fact all our family are, as we are lucky they all live fairly locally. Our message to our brides is simple - 'this is the day you have been dreaming of and we want it to be just as you imagined. We are here to help and advise as much or as little as you wish, and we offer you as much freedom as possible to plan and deliver a day to remember for the rest of your lives.' Look at the comments from some of our couples and do come and see us.
