Discover the grace and romance of historic Oatlands.
The historic mansion and beautiful formal terraced gardens offer a perfect venue for your special day.
Your bridal procession will walk through this picturesque setting as musicians play in a charming garden teahouse.
After the exchange of vows, guests can enjoy cocktails in the garden or visit the mansion while wedding photographs are taken. Our gardens, grounds and historic buildings provide wonderful backdrops to capture the magic of this important occasion.
Dinner and dancing take place under an elegant tent on the front lawn of the mansion.
Weddings and receptions at Oatlands are typically evening outdoor events held from 5:30 pm to 10:30 pm or 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm.
