Our Senior Art Worker Rob visited Burnham Beeches, an enchanting Georgian hideaway, just a 50 minute drive from London…
With its acres of beautiful gardens, stunning white facade, a 2AA Rosette restaurant, swimming pool and spa – not to mention 82 beautifully furnished guestrooms, Burnham Beeches is the perfect setting for a wedding. Part of the Corus Hotel Group, Burnham Beeches has built a reputation for delivering stunning bespoke weddings, and offering a range of comprehensive packages and complete wedding planning services.
As the happy couple, you have the choice of two luxurious bridal suites, both with their own large lounge area, master bedroom, spacious double bathroom and breathtaking views of the hotel grounds. The Thomas Gray Suite located in the East Wing is decorated in a high-end contemporary style, and features a roll top bath. While the Clifton Brown Suite is in the original part of the mansion, and decorated in a traditional style with a regal black and gold colour scheme and four-poster bed.
The hotel offers two banqueting suites licensed for civil ceremonies and civil partnerships. The beautiful Burnham Suite (for up to 40 guests) and, for larger wedding parties, the ground floor Windsor Suite offers the complete package. Seating up to 120 guests, or 180 for an evening reception, the light airy room comes with its own private bar, lounge area, patio garden, and the smaller Dorney Suite which can be used for anything from a children’s playroom to a photo gallery. After dinner, the Windsor Suite has ample space for guests to dance the night away with the hotel’s resident DJ if they wish. The front lawns are also the perfect setting for a truly unforgettable summer wedding. A marquee is available to hire for up to 450 guests, and dining options include an al fresco BBQ or hog and lamb spit roast carved by your own dedicated chef.
Location, location, location
The hotel is in a peaceful setting with an exclusive feel, despite being only minutes away from the lovely town of Windsor, the M4/M40 and Burnham Railway Station. 150 free parking spaces are conveniently available for wedding guests. Burnham Beeches itself is a brilliant area for exploring. With 540 acres of protected ancient woodland it is a favourite location shoot for films like Sherwood Forest in Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves.
