Set in luxurious gardens, the National Trust listed property Rippon Lea House and Gardens is undeniably a perfect wedding venue. With the property hosting extravagant events for decades previously, you can only imagine that your event will be like no other and you will be the belle of the ball.

Designed and built in 1868, the mansion is a perfect example of 19th century luxury. It was built in the Victorian Style, with elaborate furnishings, original artwork and detailed touches including embossed wallpaper, ornamental stained glass windows and cascading chandeliers filling its luxurious rooms. Within the mansion, the Ballroom is the destination for all events, and has beautifully infused art deco interiors. Yet again, it follows with the same luxurious feel throughout the rest of Rippon Lea House and Gardens, and is the perfect venue for those who have #DREAMED about a fairytale wedding!

Before moving into the ballroom though, the number one stop is the gorgeous Pool Terrace, where guests often spend time mingling and toasting to the new couple. We have to say, the pool is absolutely gorgeous, and can picture it shimmering perfectly under the sun during those twilight summer functions.

Once you have found the perfect venue, it can be a bit of a struggle trying to find an amazing caterer that knows the venue through and through and perfectly can tailor a menu for your needs and to fit in with the surroundings. This is why we love that Peter Rowland is the exclusive caterer for Rippon Lea House and Gardens, and has been for over 25 years - ensuring us that the food will be hearty and wholesome, and most importantly #DELICIOUS!

And what can you expect from Peter Rowland Catering at this extravagant venue that has hosted the likes of celebrity weddings, fashion parades and a few Masterchef cameos? We have been told that the team push for outside the box thinking at this venue, with clients holding the ability to create their own menu, and pull inspiration from the art deco interior that exudes both elegance and charm...Our mouths are just watering thinking about all the possibilities!
