Our Langford Lakes Nature Reserve serves as a lovely location for wedding ceremonies. Please contact our wedding planner Alice, [email protected] for any enquiries or questions!

Langford Lakes offers a selection serene, natural Wedding venues, nestled in the heart of our reserve. We host Civil ceremonies and receptions. We can give you a choice of indoor and outdoor settings so whatever the weather on your chosen day, we can help to make it special...

After undergoing a huge renovation of the Brockbank Centre, we have updated our Wedding venues and packages (2022).

Venues:

  • Brockbank Centre

Our biggest venue on the reserve, featuring large glass windows overlooking Long Pond. This recently renovated multi-purpose space can cater for up to 80 people for ceremonies and sit down receptions. Exclusive use of the Kingfisher Veranda means stunning views over Long Pond watching the swallows dance through the evenings sky! This covered veranda can fit up to 50 people for outdoor ceremonies (with extra people standing) with receptions afterwards normally taking place in the Brockbank Centre.

Our newly built Kingfisher cafe is available on request for larger weddings, there is an extra hire fee for this.

  • Otter Brook

Our smaller venue Otterbrook is an outdoor venue set by a small stream. This space caters up to 30 people for ceremonies – again receptions can take place back at the Brockbank Centre.

    • Swan Lake

    Surrounded by nature with glimpses of the lake through the trees this covered circular space shelters up to 30 people for a ceremony with the option of a reception back at the Brockbank Centre.

    Given our natural setting we do many things slightly differently to a traditional wedding venue and can recommend photographers, florists, musicians, ring-makers and celebrants whose work both minimises waste and uses local produce where possible.  Again – just ask!

    After your reception and wedding breakfast the Brockbank Centre can be used for onward celebration, music and dancing until 11pm. Subject to availability the local Village Hall, at walking distance from the nature reserve, can be used for later or louder events so that the wildlife at the Lakes can relax as normal. Silent discos are an option if you would like to remain at the Brockbank Centre until midnight.

    Please contact our wedding planner [email protected] to organise a meeting to discuss your wedding!
