Just wanted to say a big thank you for the wedding ceremony and reception for Danny and Carolyn. Escot was a perfect venue for them and the Mexican themed wedding breakfast was excellent, as were the canapés in the evening. Thank you once again for helping to make their day so special.

It was exactly the day we both wanted - informal and relaxed with lots of laughter, great food and drink, music and dancing for those who wanted it and lots of comfortable places to sit and chat for those who didn’t! We have had numerous cards and messages since we got back to say how much everyone enjoyed the fantastic food and beautiful venue.

Karen & Phil

I want to say a massive thank you to Lucy, Jo and all of the team at Escot for making our wedding so special! Right from the first visit we were sure that Escot was where we wanted to get married, the house, the gardens and view from the terrace are just beautiful. Lucy and Jo are so calm, professional and helpful, everything we asked for was possible and it always felt as though we had the freedom to make our day exactly what we wanted.

Wedding reception

We will make sure your wedding reception is exactly how you imagined it would be, whether you prefer formal or informal. How we put it all together for you will depend on the number of guests, and your budget.

Our three generic options are: 

  • Formal wedding breakfast with full waiter service
  • Seated wedding buffet
  • Standing buffet – with seating provided for more elderly guests

Within these options we will provide a menu to suit your liking. Traditional, exotic, meaty, vegetarian, hog roast and barbeques – it’s your choice and the sky really is the limit. We make the food in our own kitchens, and our years of experience with catering will ensure your guests are happy, whatever their dietary requirements. 

If you want something a little more out of the ordinary, perhaps a tea party or a picnic on the lawn, please do discuss this with us – we’ll see what we can do!

Evening reception

Once you’ve had your afternoon reception, continue on into the night with an evening reception, where you can let down your hair and party with your friends. The main house has plenty of space and the White Room is ideal for discos and live bands.
