On Hitched.co.uk since 2020

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.

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.

An outstanding wedding venue, the best around!

Brinsop is a beautiful venue which has breathtaking views surrounding it. The Manor House gives you a very traditional side to your day, but then the barn is very modern, so you have the best of both worlds.

Every single member of staff at Brinsop is amazing and they go above and beyond to help and make your day as special as it can be. From our very first visit we knew it was the place we wanted to get married!

With living nearly 2 hours from the venue, email communication was key to us planning everything in with the Brinsop team. Every email we sent was replied back to from a member of the team with a couple of days at most, always with a detailed and helpful answer.

All of the food and drinks served throughout the day were of a superb standard, neither us nor our guests could fault it, everyone kept saying it was the best food they’d had at a wedding. Nobody went hungry, that was for sure.

A special mention has to go out to Issy, our wedding coordinator, she made the whole day stress free, making sure everything went as we’d planned it, simply incredible.

Our wedding day will live long in the memory and the fact Brinsop was the heart of it makes us so proud, it is truly one of the most beautiful venues in the UK, a deserved winner of the Number 1 spot! Can we please do it all over again?

Look no further!!!

This venue is by far the best wedding venue in there Herefordshire and Worcestershire area.
From the initial viewing to saying goodbye after the wedding the tentative, friendly nature of the staff did not dwindle!
Nothing is too much for the staff at this venue.
The initial viewing had me hooked with its warm friendly and family vibe. The Manor House and knot barn were warm and inviting, attention to detail is absolutely impeccable!! The dressing gowns, the loccitane products, the mood lighting and fresh house flower arrangements to the cake and fully stocked cupboards during the wedding to name a few!!! The viewing built suspense with every area and room available to get married in…the possibilities really are endless here!!!

The wedding was faultless! Despite changing a wedding coordinator a few weeks prior to our wedding (due to staff leaving completely unforeseen circumstance) Nadia our new coordinator was amazing! Nothing was too much trouble. She already appraised herself
With our wedding details and nothing was a miss! The venue is huge and despite this the cleaning is so impressive! All of our overnight guests were so blown away with the facilities as were the wedding guests who were wowed but the breathtaking building and surrounding moat. Having had the photos back the venue has really made these as each room and part of the grounds add a different aspect to the wedding.
Truly impressive all round and we have no criticism (even constructive!) it’s all amazing and we wish we could relive the whole experience over and over….thank you Brinsop for your family touch xxx

More magical than we ever imagined!

If you're looking for a British Country wedding - you cannot go wrong.
The entire team at Brinsop exceeded all expectations and the venue speaks for itself - big shout out to Alex in particular for making every single one of our requests a reality!
Having our guests stay with us and celebrate for the entire weekend just made the whole time that much more magical.

Incredible!

We couldn’t have asked for any better - all of our guests commented on how lovely the venue are, how amazing the food was and how lovely and helpful the staff were.
We will very likely come back for an anniversary 😊

Beautiful day

We got married on Good Friday and it was such a wonderful day. Caity in particular was incredible and made sure the day went as smoothly as possible even with the last minute changes! The venue itself is beautiful and all the guests commented on how wonderful it was. We didn’t realize how manly guests had a guided golf buggy tour by John but he was so accommodating and attentive during the day. We also had a guest in a wheelchair and all the staff were so helpful and accommodated her really well and you didn’t notice all the added ramps - you would think they’d always been there.
Incredible day and thank you ever so much to Caity for everything she did including walking the dog several times and checking in on him ☺️ you’re an absolute credit to the venue.

Superb Venue

We got married here on April 8th, and everything was perfect. The staff at brinsop couldn’t have done more for you. They are rapid at responding to any questions and always there to help when needed. Perfect wedding venue, with plenty of options for ceremony, meal, and party. Exactly what we wanted and I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Absolutely Magical.

We got married at brinsop court on 10/12/22 and it was the most perfect day, the staff at brinsop couldn’t have done more. They are quick to respond to every query you have in the lead up to the big day and are so helpful and help bring your ideas to life! On the weekend of the wedding Carly was so helpful and made sure everything ran smoothly, not a thing went wrong and anything that did, I certainly never found out about it. We had issues with one supplier and the items they delivered and Brinsop Sorted it all out, we didn’t need to get involved. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous and it speaks for itself as soon as you arrive. Everything was absolutely spotless and the rooms were all clean and perfect. It was the most magical day of our lives and the staff and venue were a big part of that. We wish we could do it all over again! 100% would recommend Brinsop court and it will always be a super special place to us. we can’t fault anything! Best decision we made choosing Brinsop
