Came House invites you to make a weekend of your wedding and share its timeless charm with family and friends, as if it were your own. Came is a hugely versatile venue and offers you a great deal of flexibility to enjoy your wedding weekend as you wish.  Our dedicated Wedding Team is on hand to help and guide you throughout your booking and wedding at Came House – whatever the season.

A House Built for Parties

All of the formal rooms are licensed for civil ceremonies, the largest being the unique domed Conservatory, for up to 120 guests which was designed by the Architect Charles Fowler whose other impressive designs include Covent Garden Market and Syon House no less. There are several outdoor options too, within the gardens and the woods or at the front of the House beneath the Entrance Vestibule.

The 15th Century Chapel, just a short stroll away, is available for blessings and there is a plethora of local churches for religious ceremonies.

The extensive formal gardens provide a wonderful location for summer drinks receptions and the Saloon, Morning Room and Conservatory interconnect with the garden terrace to bring the outside in.

The Drawing Room, with its white and gold plasterwork, makes an elegant setting for a Wedding Breakfast and interconnects with The Saloon for further dining. Options for marquees are available for the more extensive guest list.

Retire to the bar in the Morning Room; dance the night away in the glass domed Conservatory and fall into bed in their stunning bridal suite. Family and friends can stay in the main house and The Garden House just next door from Friday to Sunday and if you would like to extend your time at Came we would be delighted to accommodate you.
