2018: Our First Year of Weddings


Having been awarded our marriage licence in January of this year, we have been incredibly fortunate in working with 15 wonderful couples who chose to celebrate their marriages at Insole Court.

13 ceremonies have been conducted here, the first one on February 28th, the last on October 6th. Couples have married in our Drawing Room, Library and Reading Room, the 3 most beautiful of our 7 licensed spaces. Our smallest celebration was for 8 people, the largest 115 and we have welcomed all different sized groups in-between.

The celebrations have all been different styles tailored to each couple and their families, taking into consideration their passions, their hobbies and often where or how they met.

Food and drink has of course played a large part in the celebrations and working with EJ Catering, The Potting Shed Café, Ffwrnes Pizza, Vantage Point Events but to name a few has enabled each couple to choose a bespoke menu to truly suit their taste.
There have been a number of highlights and some celebrations will stick in mind forever, like weddings including dogs in bow ties, Corpse Bride cakes, marriages of Insole Court Volunteers and Community Gardeners, cheese scone buffets and surprise weddings where only the couple knew the true plans for the evening!

Behind the scenes, the staff team at Insole Court have been incredible in learning and adapting to weddings with the invaluable support of 14 Wedding Volunteers who regularly give up their time to ensure that this one special day in a couple’s lives runs smoothly. Many thanks to Weddings by Zoë for her consultation work in getting this part of our business off the ground.

Thank you to all 15 couples who chose us to host your weddings at Insole Court in 2018. Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout the planning process and more importantly, thank you for trusting, supporting and investing in Insole Court on the most important day of your lives.

With 11 weddings booked for 2019, we can’t wait to welcome in our second year of brides and grooms!

"An email to thank you and all the staff for all the help, diligence and assistance that made Saturday a memorable day. We were so impressed with how smoothly the day went and how you were all able to adapt to changes so easily.

We’re excited to see the pictures and everyone commented what a lovely place Insole Court was. The fact that the wedding was so seamless considering that this is your first year of weddings was a credit to you and the team. Insole Court will forever be a special place to us.

We really can’t thank you enough, I felt that we were in such safe hands for the entire day due to the fantastic way you reacted to situations that arose. We couldn’t have prepared for the how the day played out (despite all the planning) and you really did ensure that everything ran smoothly and with no fuss.

You are a credit to Insole Court and the Volunteers are delightful."
