A Timeless Setting for Intimate Weddings
Imagine a place where stories are told in weathered bricks, grand vistas, and aged oak trees…where the sun sets on a Victorian reflecting pond and stars take their place above an architectural masterpiece…a site that's seen three centuries of American history…where the Ashley River murmurs nearby and musical notes roll across the lush green lawn.
After the site is closed to the general public, Drayton Hall opens its gates for wedding ceremonies and receptions. The historic house at Drayton Hall (c. 1738) provides the ultimate backdrop for an event you will remember forever.
Because of its special preserved condition, Drayton Hall can host just 12 weddings a year. Whether you are planning an intimate gathering or a grand celebration, we can work with you and your event planner to accommodate your wishes.
When you plan your wedding at Drayton Hall, you'll receive:
Exclusive after-hours rental of the grounds from 5:30 until 11:00 p.m.; Torch lighting to the house or river; Your choice of locations on the spacious 125-acre site - sites across the expansive lawn, the reflecting pond under one of Drayton Hall's famous live oak trees-or a combination of locations; Restroom facilities and convenient parking; On-site staff during event
