DO NOT HAVE YOUR WEDDING HERE!
By Shirley Wen, on 22 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Oct 2018
The venue is amazing but the event organising skills of staffs are so terrible. Our wedding coordinator is so unorganised that she almost ruined my big day several times! For example: our wedding DJ was late for 40 min and we were really panicking. The funny thing is that when I asked her whether she confirmed with all the suppliers especially DJ about arrival time, she was hesitant and said she should have done so and she needed to check her emails. I can’t believe my ears!! As a wedding coordinator, isn’t it your job to contact every supplier and make sure everything was ready ? Also, on my big day, She had this weird/ rude/ “nothing to do with me “ attitude the WHOLE DAY. Everyone picked up her attitude. Before we had our helicopter arrived, my husband asked her whether she can gather all the guests to the landing place, she rejected us and told us that guests can see the helicopter through the window. At the end, we took off by ourselves and no guests were there. Also, the staffs took our wedding cake and cut them in the kitchen. After they cut it, they just quietly left it at the desert bar while all of us in a DIFFERENT room dancing !!!!! None of my guests had our wedding cake which has cost me a fortune and effort! Even if they can’t serve every guest a cake, just a little nice announcement to tell guests that all the cakes are cut and are ready in the cake room will be better than leaving the cake there quietly without telling no one! This venue is pathetic, beautiful but you don’t want your wedding to be done here unless you want to ruin your big day!
I am absolutely blown away!
By Victoria Clark, on 24 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2018
I honestly do not know where to begin, I am absolutely blown away with how our wedding day went. All I can think about is how perfect our special day was and I already wish I could do it all again. I cannot thank Charlotte enough for making sure our day was completely flawless and she went above and beyond what I would have ever expected. Hayley thank you so so much for all your help leading up to the big day. You were always there answering my 1 million questions and offering advice and I will always be grateful for your hard work. The whole entire day we had so many of our guests come up to us and say it was hand on heart the best wedding they had ever been to. Of course, Ashridge speaks for itself as it’s just an incredibly beautiful venue which blew everyone away but it doesn’t stop there! Everyone was amazed at the food, the service, everything! We couldn’t blink without one of your lovely staff checking if we needed anything! Thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!!

Our wedding was everything, and more, that we hoped for. Ashridge is the perfect setting and the team there are professional, friendly and willing to go the extra mile.
So grateful we chose Ashridge!

We had an absolutely outstanding and magical wedding experience at Ashridge House in April this year . The wedding coordination and support from Hannah Williams at Ashridge from the point of booking our date right through to after the wedding has been exemplerary and above and beyond our expectations . Nothing has been too much for Hannah and the team at Ashridge and they supported and looked after our every need from the finest detail through to larger scale requirements which included 2 services a civil followed by a Chapel blessing at Ashridge - accommodating our guests a couple of whom are severely disabled - Ashridge is not only fully
Accessible for the disabled ( including in the beautiful chapel and grounds ) it also unusually has several disabled rooms .
We were absolutely thrilled with our wedding at a Ashridge , the surroundings and the house itself are amazing in all weathers we had rain and sunshine so photos inside and outside and they all look fabulous - Ashridge were excellent with our suppliers and creative with ideas and support for us and the wedding party throughout the planning . The food and historic location is the talk of the town - our guests have not talking about the wedding and how much they enjoyed the day and we were even treated to a historic talk about her estate by Hannah to our guests in the wedding breakfast - so grateful we chose Ashridge for our special and unforgettable day !

We can’t thank you guys enough for pulling our wedding day off so majestically. The people keep coming up to us to tell that it’s the best wedding they’ve ever been to. The flash back to the day continues to move us!

Our daughter and son in law got married at Ashridge House on Easter Sunday and we cannot thank the team there enough. We had the most amazing time. It is staggeringly beautiful there inside the building and outside, the gardens the stately home everything. Hayley the event manager was wonderful in every way. She was absolutely at our beck and call and always available when needed. She made herself fully accessible both in the run up to the day and right till the end. The staff were excellent, happy, helpful, willing and able. The wedding breakfast was sublime, hot when it should be hot temperature spot on. As Mother of the bride I had my anxieties but truly the wedding was flawless. I could not recommend the venue more highly. You are especially lucky if Hayley helps you to organise yours too. Thank you to everybody who made it magnificent. If there was one thing that could be improved it would be the breakfast buffet - the food in there was not hot enough on either morning. But as mentioned everything else was to perfection so we happily overlooked this. Thanks again to all at Ashridge House.

We got married at Ashridge House on 28/10/17. It has taken me this long to write a review because I’ve struggled to put into words how amazing this venue is. I cannot thank Hayley the wedding coordinator enough . With all the ideas she gave us in the planning to her calming presence on the day. I truly believe our day wouldn’t have been so perfect if it wasn’t for her. All the staff were so wonderful and amazing. Nigel was so accommodating with the food options we wanted for the kids at the wedding. The venue is breathtaking and all of our guests commented on how perfect the day was and how the staff were always there. I also thank them for the suggestions on vendors - Rebecca Marsala flowers and JustSmile for the DJ. Our day was perfect and I can’t thank Ashridge House and Hayley enough for making our day so memorable.

Our wedding at Ashridge was absolutely faultless!
We fell in love with this beautiful venue 18 months before our wedding and the passion from each member of the wedding planning team really did show through, in every meeting we had.
Nigel made some great suggestions to help make the day run smoothly and his flexibility when we wanted to organise the room to accommodate our numbers, was truely appreciated!
Rebecca and I had a wedding that we will never forget and neither will our guests. We have had nothing but incredible feedback including: First rate food, service and organisation.
This, together with the stunning architecture makes for the dream wedding and we can't thank them enough!
We are gutted it's all over and wish we could do it all again!
Hi Mr and Mrs Richardson,
I cant thank you enough for taking the time to write this review - we at Ashridge really appreciate it! I hope you are enjoying a married life somewhere exotic!
Do feel free to pop in for a coffee and a cake anytime!
By Mr & Mrs Hurrell, on 25 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 05 Nov 2016
Our wedding in November 2016 at Ashridge House was absolutely perfect. From my research, Ashridge was the clear winner as there are different rooms for each part of the day. Our coordinator, Charlotte was lovely and very helpful, providing advice and ideas throughout the process. She set all of our favours and table names out on the day and liaised with our suppliers for us! The food at Ashridge really is fantastic, and this was something that all the guests commented on. The service was flawless and all staff were also really friendly, from the waiters to the receptionists, nothing was too much trouble. All staff seemed genuinely happy to be working there! Throughout the whole process there was a very flexible, professional and personal approach. I can’t recommend Ashridge House enough, it’s a hidden gem and is certainly worth the journey.
By Mr and Mrs Beynon, on 26 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Oct 2016
We feel so lucky to have held our wedding reception at Ashridge in October. We absolutely fell in love with it on first viewing, but did the obligatory comparison visit to many other venues before committing. In our opinion, no where even came close. We were so fortunate to have Katie as our co ordinator. Nothing at all was too much trouble - she was always on hand to offer advice or to bounce ideas off, as well as promoting us when we should start thinking about different parts of the day. On the day itself, as the bride, I can honestly say I felt no stress at all - Katie and the team had absolutely everything under control and made sure the whole day flowed seamlessly.
One thing we loved most about Ashridge, aside from the undeniably beautiful setting, is the exclusivity - knowing you are the only wedding not only that day, but that week, made it feel even more special. Katie suggested a perfect flow for the day, utilising several of the beautiful rooms, and ensuring we had a grand entrance down the magnificent staircase!
Food is very important to us - my husband is a Michelin chef. This is where Ashridge continued to amaze us. During our menu tasting, the chefs took the time to speak to my husband, ensuring the menu was perfect. Absolutely every guest commented how amazing the food was.
During our entire reception, through to the evening, every staff member was faultless. Katie continued to manage the day through to the evening reception, and I cannot thank her enough for how well this was done.
If you are considering Ashridge as a potential wedding venue, please do not hesitate at all.
Wedding photography at Ashridge House
By Spotyphoto, on 22 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 16 May 2015
I was very fortunate to have clients who chose Ashridge House as a wedding venue for their wedding.
As a professional photographer working with couples in one of the most important, stressful and fast paced days of their lives feel that this location gives them the peace of mind and assurance that their wedding day will be a fantastic one, which sure makes my work easier.
From the moment you walk through the doors the environment is spectacular and gives you a feel good fairytale feeling - exactly what you want to feel like on your wedding day.
I was impressed by the fantastic and well maintained grounds that offered a variety of photo opportunities, especially for the very important bride and groom photo-shoot.
The central staircase is absolutely stunning, with perfect natural light and looks like a scene out of the movies and I am so glad that the couple chose to have their civil ceremony here as the images I captured during their ceremony are some of the best I have to date.
A big thanks to the staff, that was very professional, accommodating and polite and made sure that everyone was well looked after.
This will always be one of my favourite wedding venues and hope to have other opportunities to shoot weddings at Ashridge House and deliver stunning photos to my wonderful clients.
