The Coach House
The Coach House provides accommodation for ten people along with communal living space, which was the choice for Chris and his Groomsmen to prepare for the day.
Ceremony Options at Gaynes Park
There’s a host of ceremony options to choose from at Gaynes Park. Weddings can take place in one of three locations, each with its particular charm: The Orangery, Gather Barn or Mill Barn.
Located in the Walled Garden Feri & Chris opted for the beautiful Orangery for their ceremony. The Orangery is a contemporary light and airy building with exposed oak beams and is surrounded by windows that maximise natural light and views to the gardens. Capacity for up to 150 guests, the room is a flexible space that can be set up in different ways, giving you plenty of choices when it comes to your ceremony.
The Gather Barn is open-sided beamed and has a brick and flagstone floor, and is perfect for outside ceremonies or as Feri & Chris opted for, a beautiful relaxing shaded seating area for guests to mingle.
Mill Barn is an impressive old brick and beamed wedding barn and spacious setting, which Feri & Chris opted to use for their wedding reception. Situated beside the Gather Barn, it features four massive tree trunk pillars, floor to ceiling windows and a wooden oak floor throughout. This space once again can seat up to 150 people and is spectacular.
Feri and Chris had a traditional Turkish Drum & Violin entrance (Davul and Zurna entrance) but opted for a contemporary feel for the rest of their reception. The highlight being their choreographed first dance. I wouldn’t have expected anything else given how they first met.
