About The Dunstable Wedding Fair at Old Palace Lodge and Priory

Nestled in the HISTORIC PART of Dunstable, opposite the Priory Church of St Peter, ON THE SITE OF A TWELVE CENTURY PALACE, this ICONIC hotel WITH ITS LICENSED WALLED GARDENS offers THE perfect location for the day of your dreams.

The newly launched Tudor Walled Gardens in the truly iconic location of the Old Palace Lodge Hotel are a fabulous wedding destination in Bedfordshire. A shaded pergola, an attractive oak framed gazebo and at the centre a patio of soft grey pavers with comfortable rattan furniture, a fire pit and the sound of cascading water from the fountain make the gardens a vibrant setting for a wedding reception., while the Executive Chef and the waiting team, delight all guests with a delicious barbecue.

The overall philosophy of creating the gardens on the site of the old Norman King Inn is quintessentially English, an ambitious heritage project of classic gardening, with reference to the Tudor history linked to the hotel function rooms and famous bedroom suites.

Ornamental grasses give a modern feel to the planting and provide year-round interest with seasonal flowering bulbs and annual flowers in beds and linear zinc jardini. The main planting compliments the hard landscape materials of the classic English garden style, while evergreen clipped hedges, box and yew topiary set within borders of hardy perennial plants and small ornamental trees bring to life the extensive research that informed the Tudor theme by which the new gardens were designed. Shrub and climbing roses will add colour and scent, with some espaliered fruit trees raised against the walls.

In the attractive oak framed gazebo on the left side of the garden, wedding ceremonies will be celebrated watched by up to 115 guests. After the ceremony the couple will walk under the shaded pergola passageway to the terrace and welcome their guests, while Chef and the team will delight the party with a delicious BBQ.

Two beautiful glass pods offer a unique dining experience. Both can be hired for private dining.
