The Wedding of Katie & Dave - Syrencot House, Wiltshire
Great wedding photography is always helped by a fantastic venue. Syrencot House is one of those venues! Brand new and purpose built for weddings.
A Georgian house, luxuriously restored. A contemporary barn, stylishly designed. A restored cob-walled garden, once again filled with blooms. Syrencot has transformed into one of the most romantic wedding venues in Wiltshire. Once again, romance is running wild.
Walk down an aisle of wildflowers to the sound of birdsong as you step towards your ceremony in the Glasshouse. You’ll have spent the morning preparing with your dream team in the house’s luxurious Billiard Room, just a short, scenic walk away. Then, share your first moments as newlyweds in the Walled Garden, a quintessentially English haven where butterflies join your guests.
Get the party into full swing in the stylish Farmshed. Enjoy fine dining beneath the lofty timber ceilings and ultra-chic exposed metalwork – still connected to its rural surroundings – where the feeling of romance is built-in. Raise a toast on the terrace and gather around the fire bowl as the sun sinks low in the sky, ready for a late-night fireside feast.
Fringed by forest and tucked at the end of a meandering driveway, Syrencot offers a self-contained world of its own. Just 20 minutes from Andover, you can make this rare, secluded escape yours for the day and invite your favourite people to share it with you.
With 11 luxurious bedrooms and an indulgent Master Suite, your celebrations won’t end with the last dance. Dream the night away as newlyweds, then awake to a sociable breakfast, ready to reunite and relive every magical moment all over again.
It’s a Grade II Listed Building, right on the banks of the Avon, 12 miles north of Salisbury. The house has been transformed into a bespoke wedding venue with brand new, purpose built / converted ceremony and reception buildings within the grounds.
The house has a long and interesting history, most notably during the Second World War. Syrencot House operated as a base for paratroopers and was also the base for the planning and execution of Operation Overlord (the Allied invasion of June 1944) and the taking of Pegasus Bridge, amid conditions of the utmost secrecy.
The existing walled garden is enclosed by an unusual historic Cobb wall. The restoration of the wall, as well as the design of a new formal walled garden, provides the perfect setting for the new buildings, and a magical backdrop to the ceremonies held here.
The design for the walled garden was driven by historic precedent, with the incorporation of growing areas and fruit trees, and the addition of an outdoor kitchen and dining area centered around the former potting shed. The Ceremony pavilion sits adjacent to the walled garden, which creates a coherent and intimate venue space with the magnificent backdrop of the Listed house.
Katie and Dave definitely made the right decision with this venue. A beautiful day full of belly laughs. It was perfect! Here’s a small selection from their day.
