About a Great Marsh Estate Wedding

6105 Great Marsh Place, Bealeton, VA 22712

Constructed in the 1980s, the Manor House at Great Marsh Estate stood as a historical re-creation of a traditional Georgian Manor House. This estate served as a private residence for many years. But transitioned into a wedding venue in 2018. 

The Stables reception hall was initially built in the 1800s and has preserved wooden beams and rustic architecture that were protected during the 2017 renovations. But, modern amenities added include air conditioning and heat, bathrooms, a catering kitchen, bistro lighting, and a lounge area. 

The elegant Manor House and rustic Stables combine to make the unique Great Marsh Estate wedding venue a stunning place to host a wedding.

From quiet rolling hills to giant leafy trees, to the onsite pond and bridge, to a tree-lined driveway, this venue is a stunning backdrop for wedding photos.
