At Mapperton, we understand that this is not just another wedding, but Your Wedding. It is perhaps the most important day of your life, and we will go out of our way to ensure it exceeds your highest expectations.

We know that your wedding must be unique, imprinted with your own style and sense of occasion. We can therefore offer our venue as a blank canvas for you to mix your own palette of flowers, props and decoration.

Unlike many other places, Mapperton is not a wedding factory, and we have limited availability throughout the year.  We will never hold back-to-back weddings,  so you can enjoy access to the venue the afternoon before.  In addition, our venue hire includes accommodation for up to 12 people.  You receive two nights in our luxury three bedroom Garden Cottage with its glorious Bridal Suite as well as two nights in our two-bedroom Keepers Cottage, giving you the space and time you need to enjoy your big day.

We recognise that your wedding venue will hold an important place in your heart long after you are married.  For this reason, we will invite you to return to Mapperton for a free visit after your wedding at any time.  And we hope that some couples may even choose to hold a christening in our church!
