Our Langford Lakes Nature Reserve serves as a lovely location for wedding ceremonies. 

Langford Lakes offers 5 registered wedding venues to help make your perfect day. Civil ceremonies, receptions and split ceremonies are all possible, giving you unrivalled choice of indoor and outdoor settings. Whatever the weather on your chosen day, we can help make it special.

  • Brockbank Centre

Featuring large glass windows overlooking Long Pond this recently renovated multi-purpose space can cater for up to 100 people for ceremonies and 80 for sit down receptions

  • Kingfisher Veranda

Featuring stunning views over Long Pond this covered veranda caters for up to 50 people for outdoor ceremonies with receptions afterwards normally taking place in the Brockbank Centre

  • Squirrel Loft

For small ceremonies of up to 20 people, the loft is mainly used for the formal element of a split or combination ceremony with the informal part taking place anywhere you choose on the nature reserve that doesn’t adversely affect wildlife

  • Swan Lake

Surrounded by nature with glimpses of the lake through the trees this covered circular space shelters up to 40 people for a ceremony with the option of a reception back at the Brockbank Centre

  • Otter Brook

Close to both a small stream and Long Pond, this s lightly smaller square space shelters up to 30 people for ceremonies – again receptions can take place back at the Brockbank Centre

Prices include use of kitchen for your choice of caterer and use of tables, chairs, crockery and cutlery. Rooms are available for decoration from the evening before your wedding and must be cleared by 9am the following day. Prices do not include registrar fees which typically cost between £440-500 from Wiltshire Council and between £600-645 for split/combination ceremonies. There is adequate parking on site for most events and there is an option to use a local field for overflow parking, weather permitting.

Catering and other wedding services:

All catering options are possible with the use of our registered kitchen. We can cater for your event ourselves, you can use a caterer of your choice or you can even do it yourself. Similarly our Brockbank Centre Manager and resident wine and coffee expert, Steve Webb, can both advise on and supply refreshments or you can use your own preferred supplier.  Just ask us for options or let us know your budget so that we can make appropriate suggestions.

Examples of our own catering options include:

  • Lamb Spit Roast or BarBQ using Wiltshire Wildlife Trust sheep or cattle grazed on our nature reserves
  • Tea/coffee from bird-friendly, Fair Trade or organic suppliers, roasted or blended locally in Wiltshire
  • Cakes baked at our own Kingfisher Café (wedding cake service provided)

Given our natural setting we do many things slightly differently to a traditional wedding venue and can recommend not only caterers but also 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 10pm in Summer and a paying bar can be provided. 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.
