Set on 36 acres of grounds it is truly an oasis of tranquillity and can be yours exclusively for your wedding day making your fairytale wedding dream come true.
Our charming staff will pamper you and your guests from the moment you arrive with champagne cocktails and delicious canapés served in our reception rooms and gardens. The reception rooms, bedrooms and State rooms at Marlfield are exquisitely furnished and provide an exceptional setting for wedding celebrations. Open fires, antiques, paintings and scented flower arrangements are the first indications that the setting for your wedding is a much loved house.
Dinner is served in our candle lit, frescoed conservatory dining room overlooking the parterre garden and manicured lawns. Herbs and vegetables from our kitchen garden and meat and fish sourced locally are prepared by our team of talented chefs. We have won numerous awards for our food and will provide you with a selection of menus which are purely a guide line as our chefs can tailor each menu to your requirements.
Following dancing till the early hours in decadent surroundings a cheese and port feast can be served. Guests may then retire to bed in the greatest of comfort only to rejoin each other for a feast at breakfast. If you would like to host a barbecue or buffet on the day before or the day after your wedding we have lovely menus and different options we can discuss with you. The Duck Terrace Restaurant, opening in 2015, also provides a casual alternative for second day parties. We cater for up to 145 guests in the dining room. We can offer all inclusive packages including champagne, canapés, wine and menu choices. We would be very happy to tailor options just for you.
