Don’t leave your wedding day up to chance! Work with Drumore Estate’s experienced and dedicated wedding professionals at an uncommonly beautiful venue that has it all. We offer indoor and outdoor spaces to help make your event day stress-free. Brides and grooms love having our Grand Tent as one of their options for their wedding receptions or receptions.

The tent is directly behind the historical Georgian-style mansion on a flagstone patio. There is no shortage of vintage elegance and natural charm. The Grand Tent’s convenient placement allows easy access to the restrooms, the Bridal Suite, the Groom’s Lounge, catering, beverage services, and the Orangery. Having your reception under the Grand Tent gives you and your guests the advantage of all that Drumore Estate has to offer. Enjoy panoramic views of the lush grounds. Guests can stroll around our manicured gardens and appreciate the abundant 70+ acres and wildlife while enjoying drinks and conversation around our beautifully lit pool. You can have a seat in one of our rocking chairs and watch a glorious sunset in hues of orange and pink as it sets over Lancaster County’s rolling hills.
The Grand Tent comes fully equipped with up-lighting, ceiling fans, and clear sides that can be closed to protect your guests, allowing the party to keep going no matter what the weather brings! Light rain or a quick shower can be refreshing as the party continues under our Grand Tent, with guests not even noticing. The Grand Tent gives you the security of an indoor reception, but you still get to enjoy the beautiful scenery of Drumore Estate by being outside. If you plan an outdoor event and the weather just doesn’t cooperate, you can move indoors since clients have exclusive use of the property. If you planned an indoor (winter) wedding and the day turns out to be so gorgeous you want to move outdoors, you may. Planning is relaxed because the weather is not an issue.
With the ability to accommodate up to 400 guests, no one needs to be left out of the festivities. With so much room for dinner and dancing, our experienced team of Wedding Planners can customize your floor plan to create a personalized space inspired by your vision – perfect for making all your guests feel relaxed, festive, and well cared for. Basic lighting is included with wedding packages, but we offer options including liners, crystal chandeliers, festoon lights, and more to create the atmosphere you want for your event. We also have patio heaters available to keep everyone toasty warm. As you plan your wedding, you will discover that the Drumore Estate Experience delivers a unique, stress-free, and unforgettable wedding day for you, your family, and your guests.

They were a true dream to work with, they went above and beyond to give us the perfect day, and it was a blessing to have them there to celebrate with us! The grounds are so well kept and landscaped beautifully, and the food is phenomenal! Drumore was a special part of our special day and we are so very grateful to have shared our day with Drumore Estate!

This was the most stress free wedding i could have imagined! They coordinated and planned everything including set up and tear down. All the staff were wonderful and so kind to all of our guests. The garden where the ceremony was located was absolutely breathtaking- they maintained the garden and landscape in perfect condition. The carriage house was the perfect place for a reception followed by hours of dancing. Marnie helped us coordinate the whole way through and Makenzie coordinated the day of wedding event. Makenzie was beyond amazing- she was calm, cool, and collected as well as very fun! Any little request we had she made sure she got it done and would think about things for the guest to make their experience even better. The food was amazing- great taste and many options. We highly recommend this venue!!

The venue itself is beautiful, and was the cheapest around. You have to use their cater but it’s worth it. All of our guest including us loved the food. When booking with Drumore, a wedding coordinator is included as well as all the linens and tableware. They have multiple options to have your ceremony and reception as well as a plan B incase of bad weather. Having Marnie (our coordinator) was great. She made planning and putting the wedding together a breeze! Even the day of the wedding when I tried to offer my help I was turned away to enjoy my day. Drumore Estate has a great reputation with a lot of outside vendors to make your wedding special. They provide a vendors list to show you who is familiar with the venue and having those vendors who have been to Drumore previously makes a huge difference in making your wedding flow smoothly. All the vendors that we picked off the list were precessional, down to earth and super nice. All I had to do was pick my vendors and bring a couple of my own decorations and they do everything else! Our wedding day was perfect and the best day of our lives!
“We had our ceremony in the Formal Gardens, and the reception in the Grand Tent. Starting with the venue itself, it is absolutely STUNNING. All of our guests were in awe everywhere they went at Drumore. The space is so private and romantic, with lush gardens everywhere you go! You can really tell that Bill and Karyn (the owners) put their heart and soul into the upkeep of the property.” – Brittany, married 2020
