Your Gloucestershire and Wiltshire Wedding - June/July 2022 (Issue 33)

SALISBURY AND SOUTH WILTSHIRE Spotlight on... HATCH HOUSE, TISBURY Hatch House is a family home located in a private setting accessed via a set of armorial gates and a tree-lined avenue. The house was transformed in the early 20th century by the architect Detmar Blow and the stone exterior blends into the setting while the theatrical façade commands views of the picturesque gardens and nods to the vibrant, eclectic interior that maintains the warmth and feel of a family home. Ceremonies can be held in a choice of three areas. The dining room decorated in vibrant yellow with views of the garden on two sides is a small intimate space seating up to 45 guests. Alternatively, the porch situated at the back of the house that overlooks the gardens is another ceremony option and the pavilion that takes centre stage in the heart of the two-tiered, 17th-century walled Dutch garden is an al fresco space. The pavilion enjoys wisteria in bloom during late spring and the garden aisle leads from the house through the ornate garden gate to the pavilion. Receptions take place in the gardens enjoying panoramic views stretching across to the Vale of Wardour. Well-tended borders provide plenty of colour throughout the spring and summer months and the central lawn of the walled garden provides ample space for a marquee. There are smaller garden rooms that can also be utilised, either for extra space or for more intimate celebrations and one of them is large enough for a smaller marquee. Ceremony licence?

PYTHOUSE CLUB, TISBURY This reception-only wedding venue sits in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside. The clubhouse faces open countryside and offers ample space for a marquee reception on the manicured grounds. The design of Pythouse Club was inspired by a simple basilica. The Regency sash windows are framed by handmade green wooden shutters, the Clubhouse is clad with Douglas Fir and the roof is tiled with reclaimed Welsh slate. A wide veranda looks out over the stunning green landscape that offers plenty of shade and seating. The veranda can be turned in to a fabulous entrance decorated with flowers, bunting and fairylights and it can also provide extra reception space before the wedding breakfast. Inside, the Clubhouse features a fine wood floor and is filled with plenty of natural daylight. There’s a kitchen located in the main club room and the remaining space can be turned into a cosy dining room, ideal for a pre-wedding dinner, or used as the main reception room. This venue is available for receptions only but the Club is fully licensed to serve alcohol. Receptions take place in a marquee erected on the grounds for up to 100 guests, or in The Clubhouse for up to 36 loved ones seated and up to 50 people standing. Ceremony licence?
