Your Wedding Reception

The Kedleston Country House is a stunning wedding venue set in the rolling hills of Derbyshire, just a few minutes from Derby city centre.

For wedding receptions for up to 70 guests, The Orangery offers a beautiful room full of natural daylight from the skylight along with direct access onto the terrace and Georgian gardens beyond. In the evening The Orangery can be transformed into the perfect space for a party for up to 120 guests. For slightly smaller weddings the main restaurant can cater for 50 guests and we also offer marquee weddings for up to 240 guests outside.

All our menus offered for your wedding breakfast are designed bespoke to each couple, using locally sourced produce. We encourage all our couples to meet our talented Head Chef and discuss your dream menu before coming for a complimentary wedding menu tasting. For the evening wedding reception we can offer a range of options from hot and cold buffets, BBQ’s, hog roasts, pizza vans and much more.

After your wedding reception, relax on the terrace with a glass of Champagne, let your wedding guests enjoy a game of croquet or simply unwind in the snug and parlour and sample one of the 85 handpicked wines available. Not forgetting the extensive range of spirits including the Kedleston’s own gins, cocktails, real ale, lagers and world craft beers.
