Coombe Lodge – your award winning venue!

The last couple of months have gone like a flash here for us all at Coombe Lodge with the festive season very much fast approaching. It does however go without saying that they have been a very exciting couple of months and we were thrilled to announce that our beautiful wedding venue, located in Blagdon, Somerset, came Highly Commended (in the countryside venue category) in the Wedding Industry Awards.

Why does this mean so much to us? Because it’s voted for by our brilliant couples – those who we’ve helped to get married in the past, and perhaps those who we are currently working with to get married in 2019 and beyond. And that’s really what matters to us.

After all, we are very proud of our venue anyway. You only have to look at some of the images on our website to see that it’s pretty special here.  But to learn that so many of our couples think the same, means an awful lot to us.

When we found out that we’d won, our Events Director Tom said:

‘To even be acknowledged in these prestigious awards is a huge achievement for us, so to come Highly Commended is thrilling for the whole team here at Coombe Lodge. The fact that this award has been voted for by our couples means a great deal’.

And he’s right. Because we know that we can’t just rely on the beauty of our house and its surroundings. We know that you need the whole package for your big day. From the hugely talented kitchen team, working tirelessly to make sure that you have a wedding breakfast of your dreams, to the events’ team who get to know you so well in the months leading up to your wedding day. From our housekeepers who ensure that there are no surfaces left untouched when they prepare the house for your arrival, to the bar and waiting staff, whose responsibility it is to ensure that you and your guests have a party to remember. And don’t forget our team of gardeners, who make sure that our sweeping driveway and gardens look immaculate each and every time you come to Coombe Lodge.

The awards ceremony that our team attended took place at our sister venue, Rockbeare Manor, near Exeter in Devon. It was wonderful for us to have a night off, and to experience Rockbeare Manor in all its glory! We ate the most delicious food, and danced the night away until the small hours.

The Coombe Lodge Team would therefore like to send out a huge Thank you to everyone who has supported us throughout our journey so far and we are very much looking forward to what 2019 has in store for us.

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas x
