Setting up the Ceremony – All about the Orangery

Your wedding ceremony is, quite simply, the most important moment of your wedding day. It’s the moment when your lives change forever as you make your vows to each other in front of your friends and family. Such a memorable occasion needs an equally special venue and the Orangery at Gaynes Park is most certainly that. Let’s take a little time out to imagine just how your wedding ceremony could be…

Arriving at your wedding ceremony

In many ways, your wedding ceremony at Gaynes Park starts before you take your vows. Your guests will be welcomed with a walk through the stunning Walled Garden before they make their way into the Orangery to await your arrival.

If you’re getting ready in the Apple Loft, you’ll be able to hear your guests arriving and when it’s time for your ceremony, you can make your way through the Heart Gate and down the Long Walk with your bridesmaids and wedding party. This is the perfect time to relax and compose yourself and a great opportunity for your photographer to capture some memorable photos before you say ‘I do’. Now, you’ll be able to see the Orangery in front of you and the prettiest aisle ever as you walk through the Walled Gardens. Lined by borders that give year-round colour, the arrival of the bride at the Orangery always has a stunning backdrop. From the Heart Gate to your ceremony setting, this is surely one of the longest and most beautiful aisles outside of Westminster Cathedral!
