Wonderful lakeside wedding venue

Here at GU HQ we’re delighted to welcome Graythwaite to our directory of wonderful wedding venues. A beautiful Cumbrian country estate set in 5,000 acres of lakeside, forest and woodland, Greythwaite has a rich heritage, and today supports a thriving residential and working community. All the things we love to hear about... And apparently William Wordsworth, the poet, and his wife Dorothy,enjoyed walking in Graythwaite’s woods.

Silverholme, the fabulous main house at Graythwaite is a stylish blend of period character and modern luxuries: light and spacious reception rooms and quality furnishings for entertaining and relaxing; eight individualy-styled, ensuite bedrooms and the original coachman’s cottage; beautiful gardens and private access to Lake Windermere, the elegant manor house has the flexibility to make it your own - the perfect setting for your special day. The house and barn are licensed for weddings and civil partnerships and you can also hold an unlicensed ceremony with your own celebrant for any number of guests outdoors in the gardens, or in a beautiful lakeside setting under the very pretty gazebo.

You can hire Silverholme for the whole weekend from Friday to Monday, making it the perfect setting for a wonderful weekend wedding gathering.

The lovely people at Silverholme make sure its a ‘home away from home’. You can either self-cater and do your own thing with family, friends or colleagues or take up their offer of a full range of concierge services including the catering and housekeeping, as well as organised activities, leaving you and your guests free to enjoy the house and gardens, and the pleasures of the country estate on your doorstep.

Offering fine in-house catering using seasonal local produce, Silverholme comfortably seats up to 30 guests for a sit-down meal, but can also cater for up to 50 guests for an informal finger-fork buffet inside Silverholme, or in the barn close to the house, while for 50 or more guests, they’ll arrange marquee hire and can advise you on external catering companies.

So, if you imagine getting wed in the Lake District or particularly favour a poetically inspired wedding day, the people at Silverholme would love to tell you more, show you the estate and the barn, and talk through the possibilities of making your wedding a very special celebration.
