Beautiful gothic wedding venue in north Nottinghamshire

Newstead Abbey is a beautiful Grade I listed priory. Full of romantic charm, and set within immaculately landscaped formal gardens, its perfect for a picturesque wedding in the heart of Nottinghamshire.

The Orangery, with its stunning views out on to the Spanish Gardens and original features, provides the perfect backdrop for you to say I do...
Also nestled in the Cloisters is the original 13th-century Chapel, ideal for any couple hoping to add a religious element to their special day.

After the ceremony, you and your guests can enjoy drinks and canapés in the Garden Room, which leads into the secluded French Garden. A picturesque space for a sunny August evening or even a frosty December day.

Our caterers will then serve a sumptuous wedding breakfast in the charming West Front Suite to begin your evening of celebrations. This room has wonderful acoustics for speeches and live music, making it ideal for your evening wedding reception.

The Cannon Fort Room is a stylish room, adjacent to the West Front Suite, with views over the Upper Lake and Waterfall. Along with the Cascade Room and Courtyard, there are several ideal spots for your guests to relax with a drink during your evening reception and admire the beauty of the Abbey at sunset.
The landscaped Formal Gardens, surrounding Newstead Abbey, are the perfect escape on your wedding day. Enjoy a relaxed stroll in the beautifully presented grounds, while posing for those cherished snapshots of wedding photography.

If your guest list is a little larger, Byron’s Lawn situated in the Formal Gardens is the perfect setting for a magnificent marquee, where you and your guests can enjoy your wedding breakfast and evening reception.
