Wookey Hole Caves. A venue with a difference….

Whether your dream wedding is the ultimate fairytale or a small intimate celebration, Wookey Hole can work with you to create a flawless and unforgettable day.

Wookey Hole Caves holds the most beautiful rock formations of any cave in England. With a choice of three chambers, this is an unusual and magical venue for your civil ceremony wedding.

Surrounded by clear pools and soft candlelight, you can make your vows in caves carved by the River Axe over millions of years. The largest chamber will hold up to 110 guests but the caves are also intimate enough to offer a ceremony for just a few people.

The experience doesn’t stop there… After your ceremony you can also hold your wedding reception in our restaurant, exclusively for you and your guests.

The restaurant is fitted with colourful ceiling drapes, beautiful chandeliers and decorative mirrors, with space available to seat up to 200 guests at full capacity.

There is a separate bar area which is also included with your reception room as well as an outside courtyard.

Our catering team offers a tailor-made service – every wedding is unique and we take time to discuss your requirements and ensure a scrumptious wedding breakfast is provided. Why not take a peek at our sample menus…

Introducing Somerset’s newest Weddings and Functions space…

The Water Wheel Suite; situated within the walls of the 17th Century, Grade II Listed Paper Mill at Wookey Hole, is a unique and elegant space able to lend itself beautifully to any occasion. Entitled the Water Wheel Suite, the name is derived from the stunning views offered through one of the many great windows of this room. Restored and revitalised, this room captures the true essence of Wookey Hole’s past.

Inside, carved panels of exposed brickwork allude to this building’s rich heritage, offering a rustic look while contrasting with the most elegant interior. For weddings, this space can be beautifully illuminated and adorned to suit your individual desires.

To complete your celebrations, why not stay at the Wookey Hole Hotel? Within walking distance of the caves and restaurant our 58-bedroom hotel even boasts a two storey VIP Tower Suite for the bride and groom – the perfect way to end the night.

A special wedding treat from us to you… The bride and groom will receive a complimentary cooked breakfast, bottle of our finest Champagne and a family ticket to enjoy the attractions.
