Based in Worcester, we are surrounded by some incredible wedding suppliers in cities such as Gloucester, Hereford and Birmingham. Having worked with a lot of them and experienced what a joy they are to work with, as well as how professional they are, we wanted to shout about them to our brides and anyone else who might be looking for recommendations for various wedding suppliers in Worcestershire and the surrounding areas.


Wedding Venue

First up, we wanted to shout about a stunning wedding venue on the border of Worcestershire and Gloucestershire – Dumbleton Hall. 



Dumbleton Hall

Situated in the world-famous Cotswolds area of outstanding natural beauty, Dumbleton Hall is a stunning 19th Century Manor House set in 19 acres of private gardens overlooking a beautiful picturesque lake – home to our famous black swans; with 36 Bedrooms for you and your guests to relax and enjoy.

Dumbleton Hall is located on the border between Worcestershire and Gloucestershire, and is licensed for Civil Marriages, Civil Partnerships and Naming Ceremonies. There are three function suites that can cater for daytime celebrations of any size from 2 to 100 guests, and in the evening the hotel can cater for up to 200 of your closest friends and family!

Your wedding at Dumbleton Hall will always be as unique as you, and for this reason we promise we will only ever host one wedding a day. In addition to this, our venue can be booked on an exclusive basis. Every wedding matters to us, and we aim to make it as individual as you are, so speak to us about your vision and let us help you turn your wedding day dreams into a reality.



Church Wedding

At the end of Dumbleton Hall’s stunning, long sweeping driveway, sits the beautiful St Peter’s Church. So if you’ve been dreaming of a church wedding in a chocolate box location, and a manor house reception venue – you couldn’t find a more perfect spot!

St Peter’s Church is of Norman origin with 13th century additions and are more than happy to talk about the possibility of getting married in the church. You can find more information on church weddings as well as civil ceremonies on Dumbleton Hall’s website.



We will be back with more recommended suppliers, and will categorise them so they’re easy to find once you’re in our blog – simply select the Recommended Supplier category from our articles page and you’ll find them all there!

If you’ve already booked a wedding at Dumbleton Hall or indeed any of our amazing local wedding venues but are yet to find the perfect wedding dress for the occasion… get in touch for an appointment to browse our gorgeous range of gowns. We are confident you will find ‘The One’ at Gatehouse Brides.
