The Five Arrows Hotel
There is no typical wedding at the Grade II listed Five Arrows, but to every single event there is a sense of understated elegance and ease. Built in 1887 as part of the Waddesdon Estate by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild , it was originally used to accommodate the architects, craftsmen and artisans working on the Manor itself.
The Five Arrows has eleven bedrooms and is licensed to hold marriages and civil partnership ceremonies in both the Rothschild Room (with the beautiful Baron's Gate in which to sign the official register) for any number up to 40, and the Grade II listed Coach House for up to 70 for the feel of an English country garden without being at risk from the English weather!
Our restaurant seats 70 for a wedding breakfast and we can offer the Coach House for a Hog Roast or Buffet (with a private bar) for a party to remember. Add a marquee and we can welcome up to 100 of your friends and family for dancing and celebration. We offer as an option the exclusive hire of the whole hotel for you and your guests including staging of the ceremony and reception and all the bedrooms in the hotel with full English breakfast.
The Dairy at Waddesdon Manor
The Dairy at Waddesdon Manor is the perfect venue for your special day. This privately owned building has been beautifully restored to the highest standard and is set within its own grounds overlooking a lake, providing a unique setting for you and your guests to enjoy good food, world famous wines and friendly, professional service.
Weddings are held at the Dairy throughout the year and civil ceremonies can be held in the West Hall, the Wintergarden or outside on the Pavilion overlooking the lake. In winter you can enjoy roaring log fires and a welcoming glass of mulled wine. And in summer, celebrate with champagne in the sheltered courtyard or on the terrace overlooking the lake.
The Dairy is ideal for a civil ceremony in the Wintergarden, on the lake side pavilion or in the central courtyard for up to 110 guests. The wedding breakfast will then be served in the West Hall followed by dancing in the Wintergarden until 12.00am. Smaller weddings can be catered for with the wedding breakfast being served in the Wintergarden for up to 60 guests.
Waddesdon Manor and Estate is located on the A41 between Aylesbury and Bicester. Nearest motorway - M40 junctions 7 or 9. 22 miles from Oxford. 50 miles from London.
