There are few words to describe the beauty of Grace Dieu Manor School. From the moment you arrive, you are whisked away into a bygone era of splendor.
Set in 120 acres, the Manor House was built in 1833 as a wedding present for Ambrose and Laura de Lisle. Facing southeast over acres of lawns, gardens and woodland, the Manor House is a perfect backdrop for any style of wedding.
Only recently opened to the public, Grace Dieu Manor School provides an exclusive and little known venue for the most discerning couple.

The options with Grace Dieu Events for your wedding is endless. We know that no two weddings are the same. Each couple is different and that is why we have numerous options available for you to choose from.
The Headmaster’s lawn is the perfect backdrop for a beautiful classical marquee with stunning chandeliers and gorgeous draping, embodying the elegance of your wedding.
For a perfect woodland wedding, why not use a bohemian Tipi with lashings of bunting and fairy lights and gorgeous bowl food.
