It’s not just about the cricket: Weddings
It’s not just about the cricket here at the County Ground and over the next few weeks we will be looking at exactly what we can do for you off the field.
This month’s weekly stories are focusing on Weddings here at Somerset County Cricket Club.
Quite simply, the County Ground, Taunton is the perfect venue for your wedding reception. With the new Somerset Pavilion set to open this week we now have three settings in which you can enjoy your special day.
Don’t just take our word for it. The following testimonial is from a couple who held their wedding reception with us in October:
“My wife and I had previously been to a handful of functions at the County Ground before we got engaged. We were both impressed so we enquired about holding our wedding reception in the Long Room.
Right from day one we were both very impressed with all the members of staff we dealt with. We booked 20 months before our wedding date. When it came to start planning the big day a year later we met with Sam (McIntyre, part of Somerset County Cricket Club’s Event Team), who was extremely friendly and accommodating. Nothing seemed to be too small or too big for them to be able to provide. Over the coming months we had a few meetings with Sam and slowly started to plan our big day. It was never a problem for us to meet with him. A few months before the day we met our co-ordinator for the day, Mel (Yarde, one of Somerset County Cricket Club’s Event Managers). She too was brilliant from day one.
Both Mel and Sam provided us with so many ideas that we used on our big day. We delivered all of our table decorations etc two days before the wedding and gave Mel a rough idea of how we would like room to be set up. As the Cricket Club had a function the day before, we could not help prepare the room so we left it in the capable hands of Mel. When we arrived from the church on our wedding day, all we can say is that we were blown away at how the room looked. It was so professionally done, colourful and beyond our expectations.
The food on the day was of such a high level and most of our guests commented on the how good this was. Once again, nothing on the day was too small or big of an ask. The staff were friendly and polite and the day went so smoothly. We cannot speak highly enough of the service provided and would definitely recommend the County Ground to any friends and family who were looking to book somewhere for a function.”
Every wedding is unique and our experienced Conference & Events Team will go the extra mile to ensure that every part of the day runs smoothly. From the planning stage through to the event itself, our staff will work with you every step of the way to make sure that everyone in attendance has a special day to remember.

A brand new website has also gone live this week that focuses on the non-cricket side of life at Somerset County Cricket Club.
