‘From house parties to exclusive weddings, Dewsall is the ultimate celebration house!’
Dewsall is perfect for weddings and can be hired for weddings from 20 – 220 guests!
It is possible to have a civil ceremony in the house or grounds, and, by prior negotiation, you can have a blessing in the parish church at the bottom of the garden.
It is important to us to not be ‘just another wedding venue’ and we feel strongly that we will only take a small number of weddings a year, tailor making each package to the couple’s wants and needs. We therefore do not have endless documents that we can send you with sample menus etc etc. The essential thing for us is that we put together a bespoke quote after having had a good chat with the person making the enquiry.
However, there are a few basic costs that will always be the same:

Words from Betsy and Patrick who got married at Dewsall September 2011:
“We can’t express to you all how wonderful it was to have such a dedicated, good hearted, excited, yet laid back team of truly amazing people to be there for us throughout our whole wedding weekend. The venue is mind blowing, pictures cannot do it justice, our guests described it as a fairy tale and said that when they woke up for work on Monday it would feel like it was all a dream. It really was a dream for Patrick and I, a weekend we will hold dear to our hearts the rest of our lives. Thank you so much for all your hard work, the bouquets were the most gorgeous I’ve ever seen! Cora was doing my makeup when I first saw them and got upset with me for starting to cry, I loved everything about them! Samantha, I have a photo I think my mom took of you helping set up the brownies on the stand and it’s definitely going in the wedding album! I can’t even begin to count all the behind the scenes details you all coordinated to make our wedding day so special and intimate. I felt nothing but love. Now I feel even more blessed to get to know such thoughtful and kind people. Your family is so beautiful, we wish you all success and joy in your Dewsall endeavors and in life.”
Mike and Rhiannon April 2012
