Amazing wedding venue!

The most unique and special wedding venue with beautiful grounds and just the perfect setting for a ceremony either in the stunning hall or island.
We cannot thank the team at Ardington House enough for the most wonderful wedding day! Charlie and the team provided excellent support during the last year and a half of constant postponements due to Covid, we could not have got through such a difficult time without them!
We are so grateful to have celebrated in the beautiful house, gardens and marquee, which has left us with long lasting memories and gorgeous photos!

Thank you so much

Honestly, we couldn't have wished for a better day, in a better venue. Everything went perfectly, everyone loved it and most importantly me and Greg loved it. I am so glad I chose Ardington, every detail made the day even more magical than we had thought, Dragos & Lydia were amazing, made the night before and the morning run as smooth as possible. Charlie and Sarah have been a pleasure to liaise with, answering all of my little questions to help me feel at ease before the big day.

Thank you From The Zaks

Andy and I wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help and support over our wedding back in June. From all the preparation, set-up, our accommodation and the day itself, you were all so friendly and helpful. We could not have asked for a more beautiful venue and we had such an amazing day! Thank you all so much!

The guests (ourselves included) had our breath taken away by the venue, the food and drinks. Not sure if you heard but your wonderful team was the first to be thanked in Max's speech.

Everything went smoothly in the end and we loved it all. Please also help to thank Dragos & Lydia for us for being so lovely and helpful.

It was a pleasure working with you all.

The whole day went perfectly

I truly cannot thank you and the Ardington house team enough for helping us host what I can honestly say was just the best day EVER! Sam and I couldn't stop smiling (and we still haven't).
It was the perfect day and being surrounded by all of our family and friends in such a wonderful location is something we will never ever forget.
Ardington is an incredibly special venue and somewhere that we will always think about with the fondest of memories. I miss it so much already!
