Historic Bleak House


Winter Weddings at Bleak House



Reduced rates are available for December, January, and February weddings.  Please contact our wedding coordinator for pricing details. 

Bleak House is primarily an outdoor ceremony venue, however we can host intimate indoor ceremonies and winter receptions.  Receptions up to 150 (200 if patio is also used) guests can be accommodated inside the house for hors d' oeuvres/mingle type receptions.  Seated meals for up to 60 guests may also be accommodated inside the house. 

Indoor ceremonies take place in our large formal dining room.  The handcarved marble fireplace, ornate ceiling carvings, and antique gold mirror in this room make it one of our most beautiful rooms!

Indoor ceremonies are limited to 75 guests or less.  This is the maximum number of guests we can accommodate in one room, and the dining room is our largest.  Reserved seating can be provided for about 25 guests, and standing room is available for the rest of the 75 guests.  This provides an intimate atmosphere for your guests to enjoy during the ceremony.  If you would like all of your guests to be seated during the ceremony, the maximum number of guests we could accommodate inside would be between 40-50.  

Some brides choose to keep their ceremonies intimate by only inviting their closest friends and family members.  They choose to invite more guests to the reception.  Brides may choose to host a "cocktail hour" after the ceremony so the wedding party can finish pictures while the rest of the guests arrive.  A winter reception can host between 150-200 guests and feature food stations around the house as well as dancing on the patio.  Brides may choose to add these tents and heaters to the patio.
