Welcome to Old Bridge
Wedding venue in Somerset
Welcome to Old Bridge, a historical 16th Century Elizabethan manor house, located in rural south Somerset. Surrounded by two acres of enchanting wooded grounds and gardens, it is the perfect setting for your wedding day.
Old Bridge dates from 1580 and is built with the local, honey coloured Ham Stone. As a listed building, we are honour-bound to retain its unique character for future generations. In the meantime, it is a pleasure for us to share it with those of you who would like to enjoy the property as your wedding venue.
Ceremonies at Old Bridge
We are very pleased to offer The Great Hall at Old Bridge as your wedding ceremony room. The Great Hall is ornately decorated and can hold up to 75 guests in the round.
The Hamstone arched entrance porch into The Great Hall is also licenced for ceremonies, allowing an unlimited amount of guests to be seated outside in the glorious Somerset sunshine to witness your marriage.
Old Bridge is available for wedding ceremonies throughout the year
One small proviso for outdoor ceremonies; as much as we would love to, we can’t guarantee the sunshine, however we will discuss a wet-weather contingency with you.
