About this space

The warm colour palette, the original 13th century scissor-braced roof, and the small deep-set windows of the East Range provide a homey atmosphere for your big day. Fitting up to 80 guests for a civil ceremony and seating up to 50 for your wedding breakfast, this room is a perfect choice for small celebrations with only your closest and dearest.

Enjoy the informal, intimate gathering in the accompaniment of acoustic music with the lovely gardens right outside the windows. As the night draws to an end, you and your guests can make your way to one of the Priory’s recommended accommodation in Gloucester
