Reasons to hold your wedding at Woodlands Castle


As a documentary wedding photographer I’m always on the lookout for great wedding venues that will complement my approach to taking natural and candid documentary style wedding photos. With it’s beautiful gardens and period interiors, Woodlands Castle is one such place.

Period Features

Woodlands Castle is a pretty and charming wedding venue. It was built in 1810 in the Regency style. It has been remodelled since but inside and out it maintains its period character with a ‘villa’ feel that will suit the most discerning of couples.

Woodlands Castle is a flexible option for your wedding. Fully licensed, it boasts plenty of cosy and tastefully decorated inside space. Upstairs there are a number of suites available for bridal preparation.

Space to enjoy yourselves

Outside there is 12 acres of well manicured gardens - perfect for cocktails and lawn games and a little private walk. The garden also boats a pond which has surely tempted many a drunken reveller. Also available is the garden pavilion which is covered and perfect for a large ceremony and wedding breakfast. There is also a covered walkway which could be used for posed portraits particularly if the weather is bad.

Ceremonies held inside the house can accommodate 50 guests. Outside, 160 guests can be handled with the pavilion able to hold 250 guests for the evening celebrations.

Nearby practicalities

Other practical considerations include being conveniently located near to the M5; and rail services in nearby Taunton and air services at Bristol and Exeter. The nearby motorway junction is also perfect for short stay accommodation which is walkable for your guests.

Woodland’s has provided these really handy ‘360 tours’ so you can have a good look around the house and grounds.
