Coworth Park weddings are showtopping events, whatever the size of your guest list, with fantastic spaces, superb service and lots of bespoke touches
Words Eve Herbert
Coworth Park is a superb setting for a wedding at any time of year, offering easy access to London and major airports in a secluded and luxurious location. As part of the Dorchester Collection, it is a perfect marriage of elegant classical spaces and modern luxuries. What’s more, its superb grounds and versatile internal spaces mean it can cope with a crowd – or a small and personal celebration.
Of course, as everyone knows, wedding preparations have been taking shape differently this year. Venues are receiving an influx of enquiries about ‘intimate’ weddings, for a maximum of 15 guests, and for such small parties it’s possible to ramp up the experience and create an even more special and personal event.
At Coworth Park, the classically elegant Oak Room is the perfect space for an intimate autumn or winter wedding, with its stunning oak leaf chandeliers and perfect views of the grounds (and always very popular for weddings and special parties). Another great option at is the Tower House, which has an open fireplace that creates the perfect cosy and atmospheric event space for a 15-guest wedding.

There are many separate outdoor spaces available at Coworth Park, making it a perfect location for a summer wedding. You can even host your ceremony in the meadow surrounded by aisles of wild flowers. This summer, a stretch tent marquee was installed in its wonderful Lime Grove. This offered creative outdoor catering in an alternative way. The team here can offer a huge number of options for special wedding menus with a twist, be it afternoon tea or a barbecue, to create a really relaxing day for your guests and these flexible catering options will all be available next summer.
Alternatively, couples can design their own menus working alongside Michelin-starred executive chef Adam Smith. There is a branded Horsebox Bar which can be set up in the Lime Grove too – a nod to the hotel’s equestrian heritage. Here, guests can enjoy their favourite cocktails prepared alfresco, and this setting also creates perfect photo opportunities.
