Civil Ceremony Spaces

Where Your 'I do' Begins

Ceremony Spaces

From cosy spaces for intimate ceremonies, to the picturesque gardens which can accommodate up to 150 guests, Mere Court offers perfect setting for your civil service and celebrations. The Arboreum, Dunkerley, Conservatory and Gardens, effortlessly capture the essence and aesthetics of an Edwardian country estate. Brimming with distinctive features, conversation-worthy points, and picture-perfect locations for your wedding album, Mere Court ensures an unforgettable experience for you and your guests.

The Garden

Surrounding the house, the grounds and gardens cover 7 acres, perfectly combining a piece of the natural Cheshire landscape with the charming structures and cultivations expected of a luxury country hotel. This picturesque setting includes beautiful trees, vast lawns, topiary, a gorgeous lake and more. It’s a true celebration of British heritage, the perfect embodiment of an outdoor country wedding.

Free roam of the grounds are of course available to you and your guests prior to and following the service, but if you’re planning on a summer wedding, it plays the perfect host to the wedding service itself. Our timber gazebo wonderfully compliments the architecture of the main house and provides shade and respite for the bride and groom.

In terms of capacity, we can accommodate up to 150 guests, and from the decorative archways to the flower arrangements and ornaments, we’re here to ensure every detail is perfect and matches your vision.

The Dunkerley

The recently refurbished Dunkerley is a contemporary room which can hold up to 100 guests. It is an extremely practical and versatile space, which grants access to the patio, resting alongside our lake. As well as being a great setting for exchanging your vows, the room typically plays host to unforgettable wedding receptions, with groomsmen, bridesmaids and other guests, frequently seen tearing up the dance floor!

The Arboreum

The Arboreum is a traditional and luxurious area which embodies the quaint and rural charm of Mere Court’s Edwardian heritage. From the intricate detailing on the lavish drapery and the period appropriate wallpaper, to the exposed beams and matching stained panels, the Arboreum rests at the heart of this spectacular venue. Being smaller than some of our other spaces, it is ideal for intimate wedding ceremonies, trading spaciousness for sophistication. The room provides idyllic views of the picturesque gardens and lake.
