Weddings at Yarnton

A perfect setting for a perfect day, Yarnton Manor is a unique wedding venue for a magical occasion. A Grade II* listed, 17th Century Manor house, with fairytale architecture and spacious grounds, this is one of Oxfordshire’s most marvellous wedding venues to tie the knot at.

Yarnton Manor is set amongst acres of unspoilt countryside. When you choose to get married at the manor, you have the estate to yourselves. All weddings at the manor are exclusive use, giving you and your guests a fully private and tailored wedding experience.

We work alongside fabulous, supplier partners, offering you the best that Oxfordshire has to offer. 


The beautiful 12th Century, St Bartholomew’s Church, is located just 20 yards from the Manor, along an avenue of lime trees. The Church can accommodate 80 -100 people and has a special atmosphere when it is filled with guests and flowers. It is possible, with permission, to be married in the Church if you are from outside of the parish. It is also possible to arrange a religious blessing in the Church following a legal ceremony elsewhere.

Your day, your way - A celebratory ceremony

Even though Yarnton Manor does not have a license to hold civil ceremonies, we want to ensure couples have the wedding day they’ve dreamt of, with a celebratory ceremony held at the venue, either inside (rooms seating 6 to 80 guests) or outside in our beautiful gardens (seating up to 350 guests). This ceremony is officiated by an independent celebrant, or by a celebrant from the Oxfordshire County Council. The legal registration of the marriage has to be completed by a registrar at a register office on a separate occasion in a short and simple ‘ceremony’.

Manor House Reception & House party

The Manor has variety of rooms for a seated wedding breakfast, ranging from intimate dining for 12 guests in the Franklin Room to 30 guests in the Morning Room and 80 guests in the traditional wooden panelled Long Gallery on the first floor. All our rooms have a unique style, with original features and beautiful detailing.

After your wedding breakfast, the Manor is the perfect place for a house party, utilising all rooms on the ground floor, with a DJ or live band, bar and chill out room. 

Marquee Reception

The Back Lawn makes the perfect pitch for a marquee for up to 350 people. With access from the Main Hall of the Manor, your marquee will have a splendid setting, facing the south side of the Manor. For smaller weddings, the Old Tennis Lawn offers a perfect sheltered spot for a traditional tent for up to 200 people.  We are happy to recommend our preferred marquee partners for anything from traditional canvas pole tents, to a Grand Pavilion, Tipi or stretched tent with bespoke lining.

Wedding planning

Weddings can be complicated enough with all the budgeting and planning, and choices can sometimes be overwhelming. As part of your exclusive use package, our dedicated wedding planner will guide you through the process, recommend suppliers and be there on the day to ensure everything is runs smoothly.
