Does Came House have a license for civil ceremonies?
Yes, it does. The Conservatory / Orangery is the most popular location within The House for ceremonies with its stunning, domed roof (licensed for 120). However, there are other rooms in the House which are licensed including The Morning Room (opening up on to The Domed Conservatory and offering a further 45 guests making 165 in total) The Drawing Room (95 guests), The Saloon (75 guests) and The Entrance Vestibule. For an outdoor alternative, we offer ceremonies on the lawns and Terrace to the rear of the House which are beautiful. With the change in the law in 2022 you can now marry wherever you wish within the grounds of a licensed venue so chat to us about your ideas – we are really happy to make it happen for you!
Can we get married elsewhere and then have our reception at Came House?
Of course. There are plenty of local churches and we can pass contact details across to you if you are looking for a religious ceremony to take place at a church nearby. Please let us know and we will provide you with the list we have.
Can we use the St Peters Church which is in the grounds of the Came Estate for a ceremony?
Yes, of course. There is a small donation of £500 payable to the CCT (Churches Conservation Trust) but you are very welcome to use St. Peter’s Church which is set within the grounds of The House – and is just a short stroll away. The Church is no longer ordained so legal ceremonies / marriages are not possible but couples having a civil ceremony at The House may choose to have a religious blessing afterwards at this beautiful Church and it may also suit couples who have previously married before their wedding day at Came House – perhaps abroad and then wishing to celebrate their day with family and friends and wish to include a ceremony of some description at Came House. We recommend the capacity in the Chapel is a maximum of 90 – less if you wish to be more roomy!
Is Came House child friendly?
Yes, children will love exploring the grounds if you choose to include children as part of your wedding weekend – they are very welcome. If you have a large number of children, we can put you in contact with childrens’ entertainers or local creche companies /nannies /babysitters to ensure the little ones don’t get bored and the adults can have a fun, relaxing time. The Garden House accommodation (which adjoins / is immediately next to the main House) has a full kitchen and a small snug / play area which is suitable for young children plus a small terrace garden and can suit families staying for the wedding very well. We have great contacts to make sure children feel welcome yet they are looked after at all those important moments so that the parents can relax and enjoy. We have travel cots, air beds for older children and bed barriers to help with those little extras so parents dont feel they need to bring everything with them.
Can I bring my dog?
The owners of The House are dog owners themselves and in principle will permit one well behaved dog attending your wedding weekend. To ensure that your wedding weekend runs well and have no issues with your four-legged friend being part of your special day subject to certain simple “house rules” being observed so please do get in touch with a little more information about your requirements and we will certainly look into that for you. Wherever we can we will do our best to accommodate your treasured pooch being a special part of your day. Please note that your pooch will need to sleep in the Garden House – not the main House and we do ask that only one well behaved dog per wedding party is brought to Came. If you have other requirements please do get in touch to discuss and we will try our best to accomodate.
