Pre-wedding time

Beautiful French Salon

The Salon of St Claire is a splendid French conservatory style room, filled with flowers and plants. It was designed to be beautiful and captivating – a space suited to special occasions. The Salon is dominated by a large open fireplace that has a Louis XVI marble mantlepiece holding candelabra and flowers, with a gilded mirror above. It provides the perfect backdrop for a wedding ceremony.

If the lounge furniture is removed, a wedding reception can be held in the Salon. The reception could be cocktail style or sit down, with appropriate furniture being brought in. People can spill out onto the gracious verandas of the Salon which have rattan and wicker furniture.


North Lawn

A wedding ceremony can be held on the North Lawn.  If you wish a floral arch or wall can be set up.

For a reception on the North Lawn, you can have a chic white canvas and cotton rope and pole tent; a traditional marquee; an open plan set up, with stations such as a bar, a food area, umbrellas with wine barrels under them and a lounge area; or umbrellas and chairs. The set up can be done to suit the number of guests and your style. Games such as croquet, boules and chess can be played.

You can style your own wedding, showcasing your taste and design flair, from having a stunning floral arrangement in the Salon to creating an amazing space for your guests to enjoy outside.
