Your Wedding Reception

Now for the celebrations! With the ceremony over, you and your guests will be ready for drinks and canapes! Everyone is keen to soak in the happiness, catch up with each other and absorb beautiful Brinsop, and this is the perfect time for photographs!


With so many picturesque spots at Brinsop, your wedding photographs are going to be simply incredible. A good photograher will take a brief from you beforehand, understand who the key family members and wedding party are, and direct proceedings for you, so that you can just be stress-free and in the moment.

We always encourage you to visit Brinsop Court with your chosen photographer so you can choose your special locations for your wedding photographs.


If you are keen to try something different to the tray and waitress approach for your canapes, hiring a food bar works wonderfully. Everything from Oysters and Champagne on the lawn to a quintessentially British tea party and street style Viatnamese Bao Buns… We have seen it all! So long as it reflects you, your guests will love it!

We love to hear your ideas and will work with any supplier you choose to support them with access onto site and their basic requirements.

A To Zest Events

Reception Drinks

How about an outside Gin Bar in the Courtyard or the Games Room, with a jazz trio for cool sophistication? The Games Room is fab, with it’s own dance floor and built in bar! Throw the doors to the courtyard open and let your guests mill between.

Gin and Tonic lollies in the sunshine on the lawn are the perfect next step for the wedding in the height of summer. Prosecco Vans, Pimms in the sun or an afternoon wedding cocktail! Get your sunnies on and bask in that window of the Great British Summer! A game of croquet, or a cricket match on the lawn is great fun, lifting the energy and bringing people together! (Of course there is always a back up at Brinsop is the weather does turn against you). Champagne in the Courtyard, with a string quartet playing nearby? The calm and romantic feel of the courtyard is wonderful. Cocktail Bars are great fun, and can work all year round, with fruit flavours in the sun and dark rich flavours for a winter wedding.

A stretch tent can be erected to provide cover for inclement weather. This is a great choice for a late Summer or Spring wedding celebrations.



We had an amazing and lovely time for our cousins wedding. x
