    Dream Wedding

    After having to cancel our dream wedding in Sicily due to the global pandemic, we were devastated and didn’t think we’d find any venue in the UK that we’d love as much....BUT then we came across Ashridge House which turned that all around. 

    Whilst the beauty, character and history of the venue is breathtaking, it was the team at Ashridge House that truly made our decision for us. They could not be more welcoming, kind, friendly, and flexible. No ask was too much, and they went over and beyond all our expectations. They helped bring our vision to life and created the most perfect wedding day. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. 

    A special thank you to Natalie Halliwel-Jennings (Events Sales & Marketing Manager) and Ella Robjant-Boyd (our wedding planner) at Ashridge House for all your hard work and dedication to make our dream wedding happen! 

    To anyone considering getting married somewhere unique and beautiful, we cannot recommend Ashridge House enough!

    Autumn Wedding at Ashridge House

    We got married at Ashridge House a couple of weeks ago and it was amazing. The venue is absolutely stunning, the food and service top notch, and our wedding coordinator Rachel was fantastic. Our guests are still commenting on how great everything was and we can't stop reliving the day. There are a good number of rooms available to use throughout the venue, all closely connected but each one slightly different, and we moved from one to another throughout the day which kept everything very fresh. It felt like the food and drink was flowing non stop, and with the assistance of Rachel everything on the day ran to perfection. I was such a relaxed bride on the day as a result of this and was really able to enjoy myself. Thank you Ashridge House!

    The most beautiful Autumnal Wedding

    From the moment we set eyes on Ashridge we fell in love with the venue, the beautiful staircase, its amazing grounds, and the stunning Lady Marion room. The staff were so welcoming and helpful, Rachel assisted us every step of the way and was so organised and relaxing to be around, everything that you need in the build up to your wedding. On the day everything came together and the Ashridge team brought our wedding to life and we are eternally grateful, and would highly recommend.
