Stanbrook Abbey Hotel was practically made for weddings! Nestled within the beautiful hills of the Worcestershire countryside amid 26 acres of private grounds, Stanbrook offers an extensive range of ceremony and reception rooms. A stone’s throw from the picturesque Willow Lake is The Garden Pavilion, Stanbrook Abbey’s largest reception room, which can seat up to 300 guests and offers views to a private garden area. The remaining grounds provide a stunning backdrop for wedding photography, comprising a quaint orchard, flourishing lavender garden and a 100ft bell tower.
Those looking for indoor ceremony options will be enchanted by the striking Callow Great Hall, the centrepiece of the abbey and the ideal setting for a wedding with a traditional look and feel.
Accommodating up to 90 guests for a ceremony, the hall is steeped in history and charm, boasting additions by the renowned architect Augustus Pugin along with stained-glass windows and a stunning vaulted ceiling.
Couples looking for a more intimate space may consider St Anne’s Hall which comes complete with painted wood paneling, woven tapestries, an outdoor balcony and terrace area. The stunning space accommodates 100 and 180 guests respectively for ceremonies and receptions; whilst the Piano Lounge offers a cosy lounge environment for smaller ceremonies and gatherings of 30 guests.
Stanbrook Abbey has 55 bedrooms including master suites and adjoining Manor, a self-contained ‘house’ reached via cloistered corridor from the main hotel and offering the wedding party en-suite bedrooms, a mirrored make up room, a kitchen and an elegant drawing room. There is plenty of parking onsite and free Wi-Fi.
