Gay owned and operated we know how to Celebrate

After 40 years together, we really do understand gay weddings and civil partnerships. Your venue is going to be the heart of your celebration and you want to feel at home.


We believe you deserve a venue that understands and shares your excitement who want to work with you. Saltcote place is just a large private family home.


We are not a faceless hotel who neither understands or care. We will set aside the time needed to ensure your celebration is perfect. Come and share a bottle of wine and let’s chat.


No two weddings here are ever the same. We do not offer ‘packages’ we simply work with you to develop an entirely bespoke arrangement tailored to meet preferences.


We never run weddings back to back and we are far more than just a Gay-friendly Wedding Venue. With every Celebration we make sure it really does feel totally bespoke and very personal.

Gay Wedding Venue

You may notice a lot of this has been written so that search engines pick it up.

You can celebrate your gay marriage at our gay wedding venue however you want here, once within the grounds you never have to worry about traffic, parking or non-resident guests impacting your celebration. Saltcote is all about exclusivity.

Your guests will be treated like royalty. And let’s face it, there may well be more than one or two queens present. Children are welcome to our wedding celebrations as long as they are neither the bride or groom. Disabled facilities are in place and all dietary needs can be respected.

Alan and Paul look forward to welcoming you to our home!


View the elevated setting and secluded grounds. You will notice we are a very short walk into town and we offer plenty of parking from where the video starts.

The extensive lawns and formal gardens offer intimate space for your wedding pictures and more than one Bride has been invited back a few days afterward to retake a few magical pictures.

Wedding Packages – really?

Hotels and wedding factories offer wedding packages. We prefer the joy of assisting you to develop your dreams therefore we provide support where needed and ideas if you want them, because at Saltcote you are not restricted to “packages”.

We probably have the best catering and events team in place who will work within your budget to develop the bespoke celebration you dream of.

Prices depend on the time of year, the number of days and of course your preference with regard to food and drink.

We think you may enjoy looking at the brochure below for ideas, remember it’s your day and your idea’s that count so let’s have a chat and then we can give you an indication of cost, it works out to be much less than you anticipate this way.

We would love to show you around our home, please get in touch to arrange a viewing, we are unable to see anyone without an appointment.

Our Suppliers

We have an outstanding team with an impeccable track record for delivering outstanding service. Everyone on our team understands that second best or “that will do” is not an option.

If your day would be enhanced with a celebrity chef or something that is unique or religious then we may invite your supplier to work within our structure to ensure you get what you want.

Any supplier who wants to be considered for Saltcote Place will need to be able to demonstrate the highest standards from “Scores on the doors”, quality references, insurance, uniformed and highly trained staff (not temporary staff), sound knowledge of H&S procedures and insurance.

Celebrations at Saltcote Place are too important to leave to chance.

We look forward to hearing of how we can help your dreams unfold
