Choose CONKERS for a wedding to remember - An unforgettable venue offering elegance, impeccable service and delicious catering.

CONKERS is completely unique, offering a magical setting for your wedding or civil partnership. As we believe your special day should be as individual as you are, we provide a tailored service designed to ensure all your dreams and ideas are brought to life.

From your initial enquiry through to the moment you leave us as husband & wife, you will have one contact here at CONKERS, ensuring a personal and efficient service.

Under the guidance of our dedicated wedding manager, you can choose from our delectable selection of buffets, exquisite three, four or five course wedding breakfasts or even a tantalising BBQ menu to be enjoyed during the glorious summer months.

At The Waters Edge, you and your guests can enjoy champagne or cocktails on our candlelit decking area, overlooking the private lake and floodlit tree line.

For larger parties or if you have lots of younger guests enjoying your special day with you, we suggest the grandeur of the Tree Of Life Hall at the Discovery Centre, where up to 200 guests can be wined and dined.

We recognise that each wedding is unique and therefore we offer complete flexibility including bespoke menus, access times to suit you wherever possible and an accommodating approach to any request. 

A perfectly unique day, creating a memory that will last forever.
