Imagine your dream wedding location – think of the romantic ruins of a tranquil medieval abbey set in stunning countryside with just the murmur of birdsong and the distant whistle of an occasional steam train to disturb the stillness.
Then imagine your wedding day in this serene and utterly charming setting which evokes a bygone era of a quintessential rural English idyll.
If you yearn for a picturesque location away from the bustle and noise of town or city, then Cleeve Abbey – newly available for ceremonies – will be your idea of wedding day perfection.
With your choice of four ancient rooms and an atmospheric cloister all exclusively yours, Cleeve Abbey will lift your special day into a truly unique and unforgettable occasion.
By choosing a superb historic location for your celebrations, you bring the echoes of the people and events that have shaped it though the centuries, to give your day a deeper, more meaningful quality.
Cleeve Abbey was founded in the late 12th century and was originally known as 'Vallis Florida' or 'Flowering Valley' before being re-named after a nearby village. The monks and lay brothers who dwelled inside its walls followed the Cistercian order living a largely silent existence. After King Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries in the 1530s, the remains of Cleeve Abbey became a manor house.
As you pledge your vows within the ancient monastic walls, you can imagine the monks gliding silently in their white robes through the lovely archways and along the stone passageways that were once a backdrop to their lives of spiritual devotion.
Couples choosing to marry at Cleeve Abbey have exclusive use of this charming and ancient site for either morning or afternoon ceremonies followed by drinks receptions.
There is space close by the Gatehouse or in the Cloister for a marquee for dining and dancing if couples wish to extend their special day into the evening.
