5 Reasons to Book your Wedding at The Saddle Room

Posted on

1.      You can choose from a variety of venues on the Estate

One of the best things about having your wedding here at the Tupgill Estate is the amazing choice of venues each with their own unique charm and character. We have our newly refurbished Bell Barn with a stunning feature fireplace to dazzle your guests or for something a little less ordinary for a pre wedding day dinner is our quirky wine cellar with vaulted ceilings and hidden passage… For smaller wedding parties we also have the Hayloft that boasts beautiful views across the Estate or our Fishing Temple that is an impressive backdrop for wedding photos.


2.      Delicious catering packages tailored to you!

One of the most important elements of any wedding is the food and this is where we believe we excel. Our wedding menus are delicious and inventive and tailored to suit your tastes. From impressively presented canapes to three course fine dining, we look to create a menu both you and your guests will never forget.


3.      You can incorporate the award winning Forbidden Corner attraction into your day

Anyone who has visited the Forbidden Corner will tell you there is no other place quite like it! The attraction is a labyrinth of tunnels, chambers and follies all more creative and surprising than the next. We know that more and more couples are looking for something a little extra from their wedding day and their wedding photography and the photo opportunities at the Forbidden Corner are endless!


4.      Our accommodation is perfect for out of town guests

There’s nothing that kills the mood at a wedding more than guests panicking to be ready for prearranged transport to their accommodation after the reception, or worse, frantically trying to arrange taxis! We think everyone should be able to have a fun filled day and evening too and have a range of beautifully appointed rooms on the Estate (and within stumbling distance!) from our wedding venues. We also have Self Catering options for guests who with bigger family groups who would all like to stay together.


5.      Our wedding package includes an on-site Wedding Coordinator!

Let’s face it, Wedding planning is stressful! At The Saddle Room we think wedding planning should be an enjoyable experience and our staff are here to make that possible. Rachel, our on-site wedding coordinator has helped countless couples organise every detail of their big day. Here is what one bride had to say about her wedding with us…


“Ria thank you so much for all your hard work in the many months leading up to our day, you have been so lovely and huge thanks to the rest of your team every one of you have been amazing! Rachel thank you so much for your attention to detail you’re a perfectionist and the barn looked incredible!”


If you are planning your wedding and would like to know more about our packages why not call our team, or better yet, plan a visit and experience the magic yourself!


Adam and Laura’s Wedding

Posted on

There is a phrase by Chinese Philosopher Lao-Tzu that perfectly sums up Laura and Adam,


“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage”


Laura and Adam are a very special couple who recently tied the knot here at The Saddle Rooms. In 2013 Adam was diagnosed with an extremely rare cancer called pseudomyxoma peritonei and given only weeks to live. After hearing about a pioneering surgery Adam and Laura took the decision for Adam to undergo the same procedure.


Adam underwent a gruelling 17 hour surgery performed by a skilled team of 30 people that involved replacing Adam’s pancreas, spleen and stomach.  Adam is one of only 4 people in the world to survive this intense surgery and is a true testament to his strong and determined character and their love as a couple.


This May Adam and Laura were married in our beautiful new Bell Barn in a ceremony that left no dry eyes. Their friends and family did a fantastic job of decorating the venue and the weather was perfect on the day.


We are very humbled to have been chosen as the venue for this extremely special day and wish the happy couple all the best for their future together.
