Last update: May 2024

Celebrating love stories since 2015, Brinsop Court Manor House and Barn were awarded the prestigious title of number one UK wedding venue on Hitched for two consecutive years. Nestled amidst the breathtaking landscapes of Hereford, Herefordshire, this historic estate is a picturesque haven for couples seeking a fairytale wedding.


Couples and guests step into a world of timeless elegance as vows are exchanged in the enchanting ceremony rooms within the 12th-century moated manor house. Whether it is an intimate gathering or a grand affair, the diverse indoor and outdoor spaces cater to every aspect of the celebration. The romance of the Banqueting Hall, Elizabethan Library, and Queen Anne Dining Room exudes unique charm and character.


For those dreaming of an alfresco ceremony, the enchanting woodland, courtyard, and lush lawn provide idyllic settings for those special moments. After a beautiful ceremony, guests can enjoy a refreshing drinks reception on the expansive event lawn, where celebration and joy flow freely against a backdrop of natural beauty.


As evening falls, festivities can continue into the late hours at the newly built event barn, aptly named, The Knot Barn. Floor-to-ceiling windows seamlessly blend indoor elegance with outdoor splendour. The Knot Barn is the perfect place to enjoy a sumptuous wedding breakfast while admiring panoramic views before an evening of dancing and revelry.
This is the ultimate wedding experience, with overflow accommodation for guests to immerse themselves in a tranquil pocket of ancient woodland luxury in the on-site glamping accommodation.


Couples are assigned a dedicated wedding coordinator to guide them through every step of the journey so that the day is nothing short of perfect. From exclusive use of the property to exquisite event catering, including an extensive wine list, Brinsop Court Manor House and Barn go above and beyond to create unforgettable memories.


To conclude every fairytale celebration, the signature 'recovery breakfast' for the morning after, is ideal for reminiscing on those cherished moments of the day before that will remain some of the best memories for years to come.

Went above and beyond

Nina was excellent, leading up to the wedding day itself she was extremely responsive to our emails and questions! We felt extremely confident that the day we had spent over 2 years planning was in safe hands. Nina made our day special, coordinating the change of ceremony due to the weather smoothly for us and our guests. We couldn't have asked for a better coordinator, Nina went above and beyond on more than one occasional and we can't thank her enough.

The perfect wedding venue

We honestly cannot thank Brinsop and all their staff enough for the efforts they put in to making sure our day was super special. We enjoyed it from start to finish and it wouldn't have been the magical day it was without your help. Nadia, our wedding coordinator, was brilliant, so helpful and responsive. The food was delicious, some of the best food I've ever eaten! The crème brulé in particular was complimented by so many of our guests.

All the staff throughout the day can't be faulted, from those helping with set up through to the grounds people and the catering/bar staff.

Our wedding dream could not have happened without Brinsop!

Choosing your wedding venue is no small feat, but once we viewed Brinsop there was no question, it just had to be here.

There are so many things that we could praise about Brinsop; the house, the knot barn, the surroundings, the list goes on. But one thing that stood out for us and the one thing you must know, is that the staff are the backbone of this venue and without them our day could not have been possible.

We were blessed with Alex, our events coordinator and she has been faultless, we cannot thank her enough for all the hard work and dedication she has given to us and our special day. She is a credit to Brinsop and if you’re lucky enough to have her as your coordinator, I can assure you that you are in the safest of hands.

Of course we must mention the rest of the Brinsop team, management, admin and house keepers for all of their hard work. It didn’t go unnoticed.

Quite simply, if you’re looking for the perfect wedding venue, you’ve found it here.

Out of this world!

Brinsop was the first and only venue we viewed, when we knew we definitely knew! The cherry on the cake was that our beautiful pups could stay all day and night with full access, we would have never got married without them!
Alex, our wedding coordinator, was perfect from start to finish! She made our day so unbelievably special and it went so smoothly. We had no stresses and we were able to enjoy our day with all of our loved ones. We've been inundated with compliments of how beautiful the venue and the rooms are. Our family are even talking about hiring the house out for one Christmas in the future! We've already booked onto their date night event in February and we're so excited to go back and relive our memories. It's no surprise Brinsop has been voted the best venue in the UK. It doesn't compare to anywhere else!

Absolutely Speechless

Brinsop was amazing from the start to finish -even after the wedding had finished! Having their booking portal made things really easy for booking rooms, paying for the food and drink plus any additional extras. Alex was our wedding coordinator and I was so happy we had her for our special day as she made everything run so smoothly and even came up with a plan b for our sparkler entrance if it was raining. The food and wine offering was fantastic and two weeks later we still have guests raving about it to us! Thank you to all the team at Brinsop.

The perfect venue

It was the first venue we visited and it set the bar straight away. We couldn’t believe what a beautiful venue we had 20 minutes from home, with amazing countryside views and even better staff who were so incredibly attentive - ensuring nothing was too much and that our day was perfect! We would 100% recommend Brinsop and couldn’t be happier we chose to get married there.

Our dream wedding venue!

We got married at Brinsop Court in September after falling in love with the venue as soon as we saw it! We loved that we could have a 2 night wedding and have exclusive use of the venue, allowing us to have a dinner with close family/friends the night before our wedding.

There are many different locations to choose from for the ceremony (including indoor/outdoor options), drinks receptions and wedding breakfast. We chose to have our ceremony outdoors in the courtyard, drinks reception on the lawn and wedding breakfast and dancing in the Knot Barn.

The entire team from start to finish were nothing short of incredible. The team made us feel so relaxed prior to our wedding and nothing was too much trouble for them - special shout outs go to Daisy & Izzy who were brilliant.

All of our guests commented on how amazing the wedding and venue was from start to finish and how the staff were brilliant.

We could not have asked for a better wedding & it went above and beyond our expectations.

The perfect wedding day

Me and my husband got married here on the 22/7/23! Alex was our coordinator and she went above and beyond for us! She calmed my nerves from the moment I arrived, and made sure the day went as smoothly as possible! It’s honestly a day we will never forget! The building are views are so picturesque, the staff were friendly and helpful, and every room in the building were exceptionally clean and beautiful!

Unbelievable venue

It’s easy to write a good review when the venue is as beautiful as Brinsop Court. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating if they tried. Every single guest had a fabulous time and all commented with “what a place”. Brinsop Court is simply stunning and the members of staff do their utmost to make sure your day goes off without a hitch. Couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

AMAZING wedding venue

We had our 2 year delayed wedding at brinsop on Thursday and I literally cannot fault the venue or the staff.
It is the most stunning venue - beautiful and atmospheric without being stuffy or impersonal. It has a warmth and friendliness with so many cosy nooks and crannies to be explored. Every single one of our guests (from Dubai, USA, Germany, France, New Zealand and uk) without any exceptions commented on the venue, and with a venue like this there is little you need to do to make everyone have a good time. We had our ceremony in the courtyard (the place that set me off in tears when I first visited!) , drinks and jazz group on the wordsworth lawn, dinner in the stunning hall and party in the games room, with sparklers and fire pits for marshmallows in the courtyard lit by fairy lights. It couldn't have been more magical.
But it's not just the venue that makes brinsop so special. The staff are so helpful and accommodating. I have heard so many horror stories from other brides who have had to deal with the past 2 years of covid delays, but despite no less than 4 date changes since our original date in July 2020, brinsop made the whole process easy and worry free and I cannot thank them enough for this. From buying an oval top table because I'd seen this at another venue and liked them, to sorting lighting for us when our lighting supplier went bankrupt due to covid, to recommending the most amazing other suppliers from photographers to cake makers to babysitters for our 1 year old twins, to providing fabulous food the night before, evening of and morning after the wedding, they did an AMAZING job.
I would 200% and without reservation recommend brinsop to anyone else looking for the most memorable and worry free wedding.

A wedding of dreams

We got married at Brinsop on Saturday 6 July 2024 and it was everything we dreamed of and more.

Looking at other couples reviews prior to me writing this I don’t really need to say much more but I’ll give my experience regardless because it was amazing. We will forever be grateful for the Brinsop team for giving us the most perfect wedding day.

Nina was our co-ordinator and we had a real journey together! From tears to laughter Nina was there through it all, particularly when we had to change location for the ceremony and drinks reception due to the rain (I was pretty inconsolable at this point - how could I be so unlucky to have thunderstorms in July!!) and whilst she knew a call had to be made she held it off until the very last minute. I was stubborn and refusing to accept we were moving inside in July despite there being some absolutely gorgeous indoor ceremony options but I just had a picture in my head at that point of grass and flower meadows etc so indoors was not working with my vision! Nina came up with me ideas on the spot and we ended up having a half inside half outside ceremony under the pergola - it was magical and worked so well, Nina understood my vision and brought it to life - nothing was too much of an ask for her or the team. With 134 guests to organise I was changing the table plan and accommodation allocations constantly too and I never felt like o was being a pain.

The food was delicious and I couldn’t even tell you how many guests came up to us on the day and said it was the best venue and wedding they had ever been to.

If you’re looking for class and to wow your wedding guests then Brinsop will definitely deliver.

Beautiful wedding venue

We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding venue and staff who made the day run so smoothly. Issy really went above and beyond to make us feel at ease especially when we had to switch the location from outside. She coordinated excellently with us and our other suppliers to organise the day. The catering and bar staff were exceptional and everyone loved the food and atmosphere.

Unbelievable service

I could not recommend brinsop court high enough.

Despite the fact they do this every day, they made us feel so special and like our day was the most important to them as well as us.

They genuinely could not do enough to help, Nina was absolutely fantastic

Wonderful Wedding

We held our wedding here in May 2024 and we loved every single moment of it. Taking the staff out of the picture for a moment, the venue itself was stunning and well worth the money that we paid with all our guests commenting on how beautiful it was.

The staff themselves were great. In the build-up and during the course of the day they were always there to help us from big issues (Like dietary requirements and vendor recommendations) to small issues like the best table layout to have in the Knot Barn.
