Weddings at Sharpham

We are now taking bookings for weddings in 2024 and beyond 

On a few limited occasions each year, the Trust welcomes couples to use 18th century Sharpham House and its wonderful gardens exclusively for their weddings, with all proceeds going to help support the work of the charity and upkeep of the Estate.

We all had such a wonderful time at Sharpham. All your staff have been so kind, helpful and considerate and it all contributed to a wonderful wedding weekend.

Have your memorable wedding in a stunning, historical and breathtaking setting.

Before and after the wedding, you and your guests can be accommodated in comfortable bedrooms among relaxed surroundings, while you can choose from five elegant rooms in this Georgian Palladian mansion designed in 1770 by Sir Robert Taylor, all licensed to hold your civil wedding ceremony.

Many couples choose to hold their ceremony on our famous feature: our spectacular, oval, cantilevered staircase, rising three floors beneath a domed ceiling and lantern skylight.
