The Bembridge House's Peppertree Court is a lovely garden that offers the perfect backdrop for an intimate wedding or special luncheons and receptions. It will accommodate 75-100 guests depending on the set-up. Tours of the historic home are available to guests but the home itself cannot handle more than a very small wedding. The basic site rental cost for a wedding is $2000 plus $2000 for a rehearsal.
