Planning your dream wedding can be stressful, especially when you want everything to be perfect. One major aspect of a wedding is the venue and sometimes it’s almost impossible to find the right one so, we have this beautiful and magical venue that could make your dream wedding come true.
Contemporary, elegant and romantic, The Groves’s beautiful events venue is set in the rolling hills of the Caversham Valley in the sought-after Midlands. Every event crafted at our venue is unique, bespoke and requires an individual approach and set-up (we are not your cookie-cutter wedding venue). Our idyllic property offers a number of perfect spots for you to host your ceremony and say your “I do’s”.
Our air-conditioned, stone and wood chapel is nestled in the orchard and affords stunning views over the neighbouring fields. The large wooden windows, set into the hand-laid stonework, frame the rolling hills and create the perfect backdrop against which to savour that first married kiss.
The Orchard River Deck
Situated just below the chapel and a short walk through the orchard, with a crystal chandelier overhead, is our scenic wooden deck set into the river. This beautiful outdoor ceremony option has seating for up to 200 guests on beautifully restored, sun-bleached benches.
A rustic, converted stable, full of old-world charm, is perfect for those post-wedding refreshments and smaller events for before and after the wedding day. It is a warm and intimate space for your guests to mingle, whilst your wedding photos are crafted on The Groves’s grounds. Exposed beams, frameless stack glass doors leading out into the orchard, wood fireplace, soft Provençal landscaping, and original brick-feeding troughs create the perfect ambience in which to spend a couple of hours before the main celebrations and speeches start. The Stables is also available for smaller events be it a birthday lunch with friends, fortieth celebration, hen’s party, baby shower or small workshops and conferences.
The Venue @ The Groves
The paved deck area leads onto a beautiful swimming pool with bullnose coping and perennial water features. This all sets the scene for breathtaking views through the stacked glass doors. Decorated in subdued shades of grey with screed floors, an enormous central crystal chandelier and three gorgeous, modern black framed mirrors as the central features. A huge stone-clad fireplace finishes off this elegant 200-seater venue which adapts itself to any bride’s tastes.
The Groves provides exclusive use of the venue and Manor House for two days. With everything you need in one fantastic venue, The Groves is an unforgettable place to start your lifelong journey together.
