Epsom House Ceremony & Receptions
Your Bespoke Wedding experience at Epsom House is uniquely tailored for your dream wedding. With no need to conform to a pre-packaged concept, Jacqui and Geoffrey will take all the hard work out of planning to ensure that your special day is an incredibly romantic, boutique experience.
Whether you prefer to say ‘I do’ in the English style gardens, in our fully restored Georgian Ballroom or in the beautiful light-filled conservatory and courtyard, our gracious and elegant historic country house is the perfect setting for a magical day.
Choose the style and format of ceremony and reception that suits your personal tastes. Whether formal or casual, your guests can savour gourmet menus created especially for you by our wonderful chef Ceinwen. At Epsom, food and ambience together combine to set the perfect scene for this, your most memorable day.
Epsom House bespoke weddings offers tailored packages that can include our six individually-designed guest rooms, available both before and after the ceremony including our grand Honeymoon Suite which features a romantic 1850’s mahogany four poster bed.
You may decide on one of the many romantic spots in the garden for your ceremony or prefer an indoor option, including: Semi-Circular Lawn with lily pond and rose arbour, Croquet Lawn, Summer House Garden with large Italianate pool, Terraced Native Garden with rock pool and mini waterfall, Stone Walled Courtyard, Large Conservatory with or without the formal Dining Room and the Epsom House Ballroom.
Epsom house is a renowned classical music centre and we can provide live music, for example, string quartets, brass fanfares (or piano in the Ballroom), to accompany your ceremony.
Epsom is available for a brief wedding rehearsal in the week prior to the ceremony if required.
At Epsom there are several options for your reception, depending on your numbers, tastes and, of course, the weather: Our magnificent Georgian Ballroom, The Large Conservatory and walled Courtyard, The Garden, and The Dining Room.
We can cater for day or evening wedding functions with an average length of 4 to 5 hours. Daytime functions are offered from 11.00 am and evening receptions conclude at 11.00pm. Alcohol service concludes 30 minutes before any designated finishing time.
At Epsom we offer a choice of alcohol packages or alcohol by consumption. We strictly adhere to the ‘Responsible Service of Alcohol’ guidelines and advise that the bridal couple should designate a guest or family member to liaise with staff regarding guest consumption of alcohol.
Transport and Parking
There is adequate on-site parking for guests at Epsom. We can, however, arrange bus transport to and from the venue from Hobart (30 minutes) or Richmond (15 minutes). Cost for bus transport can be separately negotiated.
Epsom is a photographer’s dream! Both the gardens and the house are available for your bridal party’s photo shoot. Geoffrey and Jacqui are happy to host your photographer for a meeting prior to your special day to ‘scout’ the perfect locations for your photographs.
Epsom offers a variety of options for your Wedding Reception. Whatever your choice, be it High Tea, Cocktail, Hot & Cold Buffet, Or a Formal Sit Down Dining Experience, our chef Ceinwen sources local fresh produce, much of which comes from Epsom’s own ‘potager’ patch and garden.
You might like to consider an extended ‘cocktail’ format whereby formal sit-down meals are replaced by substantial finger or ‘fork’ portions served throughout the reception.
For less formal garden functions, we also specialise in ‘gourmet hampers’ that allow your guests to choose a romantic spot of their own in the grounds to experience Ceinwen’s ‘perfect picnics’. Alternatively, we can provide a “High Tea’ to follow an early afternoon ceremony.
