Your PerfectSomerset Wedding Ceremony
Maunsel House is a picture-perfect country house wedding venue that is the ultimate place to celebrate love. When you choose Maunsel House as your wedding venue, your personal wedding coordinator will be with you the entire way from the first steps of planning to ensuring your day goes flawlessly. Whether you are having a civil wedding ceremony or a church wedding, we meticulously cover every detail.
Hold your ceremony in our glorious Regency Ballroom, a venue that is licensed for civil ceremonies and seats up to 162 guests. The Ballroom is decorated with magnificent portrait paintings, spectacular chandeliers, and candle-adorned mantle pieces. Your romantic ceremony will have the perfect setting here.
If you are considering an outdoor wedding, our elegant bandstand is the perfect venue for your ceremony. Surrounded by fields where miniature Shetland ponies, ducks, guinea fowl and peacocks roam and pretty bench swings hang from hundred year old trees, this wonderful Somerset country scenery makes for a quintessentially English garden wedding.
For an intimate ceremony, the Victorian Library is the perfect room. Recite your vows in front of the large stone fireplace surrounded by armour, hats, news articles and portraits. The library window looks out over the lawn and no doubt a peacock or gaggle of geese will walk past.
The Church Service
If you fancy a church service, Maunsel House is located only a short walk from St Michael’s Church, which is one of the smallest churches in England and a beautiful Somerset wedding venue. An enchanting candlelit Saxon Chapel, this charming church seats up to 50 guests. The famous author Geoffrey Chaucer based his character ‘The Wife of Bath’ on a local lady who was married there 5 times.
For larger church ceremonies, there are two other Church of England churches within the Parish: St Peter’s in North Newton, which seats 150 and The Minister Church, St. Mary the Virgin in North Petherton, which seats 250. With both located within a 5-minute drive from the Maunsel Estate, we are able to use either of these beautiful churches as your wedding venue and hold your reception here at the house afterwards.
