Perfect, picturesque venue

Burloes Hall was everything we wished for and more. From start to finish, our whole experience was amazing and we honestly couldn’t have had a more perfect day. Nicole and Katherine were so helpful and happy for us to add our own touches to make this day our own, nothing we asked was too big or small and the day ran seamlessly. They put us in touch with local suppliers who we would highly recommend and made us feel welcome from the start. Lastly - the grounds and views are breathtaking and offered the perfect backdrop for our wedding. If we’re honest, this is what we fell in love with first and everything else we experienced was an amazing added bonus. Wish we could go back and do it all again!

A hidden gem in the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside

We chose Burloes Hall as our wedding venue for June 2017 on a very grey February day 15 months beforehand, but as soon as we arrived to visit we could tell we'd found somewhere special - and on the day it exceeded all of our expectations!

Nicole & Katherine couldn't have been more helpful during the planning process & on the day itself, and we loved the freedom we were given to enjoy our wedding day as we chose. Burloes really feels like a unique venue & is so far removed from the revolving-door feeling you get when visiting other venues, due to the limited number of weddings which take place there each year.

The views across the open fields are stunning, the marquee is of a very high quality & although the venue is surrounded by beautiful countryside, it's only a few minutes drive to great transport links by car or rail.

The grounds make for some amazing photo & video opportunities, and the little extra touches such as the lanterns that were lit at night make it such a special place.

Our only regret is that we can't do it all over again, but if we could we'd choose Burloes every time.

Beautiful venue

Such a stunning venue and feels like you’re in the middle of nowhere! We fell in love with it the first time we visited and booked it for our wedding soon after, the gardens are gorgeous.
It was nice to be able to have the freedom to choose suppliers but Nicole and Katherine also had a great list of options too, they made everything very easy for us and we’re always there to help in anyway. We had the best day ever so thanks so much Burloes! ?

Beautiful venue, flawless support

The team at Burloes went above and beyond for my niece’s wedding day - no little detail went unthought of.
From the initial viewing to the flexibility of sites for the blessing to the little touches in the marquee - everything was not problem’ and supplemented with practical and innovative ideas and solutions.
The day itself was a dream, the gardens magnificent, the efficiency of all teams working well together meant there was no hitch (except for the lovely couple getting hitched!). I would recommend this venue to anyone for peace of mind and a beautiful outcome.

Stunning Venue

Burloes Hall was the most idyllic setting for our wedding reception, and Katharine and Nicole were so helpful and supportive throughout our entire planning process and of course on the big day as well. We couldn’t recommend it more.

Burloes Hall is stunning!

Thank you so much for allowing us to have our wedding at Burloes Hall. The venue was absolutely beautiful and we could not have imagined a better place to get married.
Thank you for being so accommodating and helping us with all our plans. Our guests are still telling us how wonderful Burloes Hall is and it will always have a special place in our hearts. We hope to get a chance to visit again very soon

The most perfect wedding venue

We held our wedding reception at Burloes Hall in July and it was just perfect. As soon as we first met Nicole and Katharine, we were put at ease and felt confident with them looking after us and our big day - we just knew this was the place for us. They make the day so personal, and you can ask them just anything (at any time!) and they’re so quick to respond and work with you. Nicole and Katharine will go out of their way to help make your big day the absolute best it can be. As for the location and venue, it speaks for itself - it really is stunning, we had so many compliments from our guests. A true hidden gem in the rolling hills of the Hertfordshire countryside - a very special place for us, for a very special day - with memories that will last forever. Thank you!

Perfect Venue with wonderful hosts

Burloes Hall is a stunning venue for a wedding. We got married here in August 2018 and couldn't have been happier. The gardens and views over the surrounding countryside are breath taking and the marquee is fantastic. Photos don’t do it justice so it is definitely worth a visit. There is a cricket net, which went down very well with our guests and in the evening the whole place is it up by beautiful lanterns. Nicole and Katherine run events at Burloes and truly are a dream team. They are so lovey, supportive and willing to help. Their ample experience combined with a relaxed approach is also just what you need whilst planning a wedding! Nothing was too big a problem and we can't thank them enough for everything they did for us. They were so willing to be flexible with our two day wedding (we had a Hindu ceremony on one day and Church and reception on the next) which made the planning so much easier. In addition, Burloes only does one event a week which really makes yours feel special and they have the time to invest in making your day perfect. We loved Burloes for the ability to put our own stamp on the festivities and we’re so glad we found them. Highly recommended!

Beautiful views and such a good price!

"Wow - what even to say about this amazing place! My husband and I got married here at the end of July 2018 and we still can’t quite believe how lucky we were to find it! The view is absolutely stunning (rain or shine) and it’s the only place for miles with such a lovely private and secluded space whilst still being easily accessible from a variety of locations. I would really urge you to book a visit and see for yourself. We saw it in January when the gardens were by no means at their best, but we still knew it was the place for us! When we first met Nicole and Katherine they made us feel so welcome and at home, it was so far removed from the horrible wedding factory feel we had at many other places. Throughout the process they couldn’t have done enough for us making us feel special and almost as if we were getting married in a friends back garden as opposed to a wedding venue! But that didn’t affect the service - Nicole is the speediest email responder (if that’s a thing..) I have ever come across! Nothing was too much and she really made the process a joy! The venue is absolutely beautiful and the gardens have many lovely secluded places for photos. The marque, chairs and tables are all in lovely taste. Having one side of the marquee being able to open was a lovely touch and brought us even closer to that fabulous view! The price is amazing for everything that’s included and they are a million miles away from trying to get extras out of you or limiting your availability to the venue. I would whole heartedly recommend Burloes Hall- what a special place!"

Love at first sight even on a cold January day!

We first viewed Burloes Hall on a cold January morning without even seeing the marquee up but we knew straight away that it was exactly what we were looking for. Nicole and Katharine were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We loved the flexibility that Burloes offered us - we were able to add our own personal touches to ensure that it really reflected us both.

Nicole was always at the end of an email with advice and guidance and we were made to feel so welcome. Everything went so smoothly and all of our guests commented on the amazing view - it truly is a magical setting. Thank you so much to all the team at Burloes - we loved every second of our wedding day and just wish we could do it all over again!

Stunning Venue

We found Burloes Hall after over a year of looking for a wedding venue that was beautiful, had a great choice of outside space(we had our ceremony in the sunken Italian gardens surrounded by lavender and the sound of water trickling into the fountain while the gentle sounds of Toto's Africa were played by a string quartet! Burloes Hall is amazing. Nicole and Katharine are so supportive and friendly and the limit is your imagination. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a fabulous venue A secret gem.

Amazing views, fabulous marquee, just perfect

Burloes was the first venue we visited and we knew we’d choose it straight away so didn’t visit anywhere else! The marquee was new in 2017 and enormous, and it includes the catering tent, toilets, lanterns on the pathway up and parking on site with security. The views are amazing (clear sides means you can see out across the landscape or open them if hot weather) and there were horses in the fields, rabbits and pheasants when we visited on the sunny open day. It’s a super countryside venue that’s really not far from central London. When we booked there was a shortlist of caterers (we chose Capers) who were great to work with and made the day run really smoothly. You can bring your own booze in the day or use a company so there’s lots of flexibility. Nicole and Katherine lead things from the Burloes side and are charming, kind and fun to work with! The marquee is a blank canvas so we came 2 days early to cover it with coloured paper lanterns, flowers and ribbons. You could get a company in to help you do this though! You and the guests have full use of the gardens which make for great photos - our photographer (Sasha, also recommended) took us out for a sunset shoot. Then the party started (we used splendid sounds, who we also would recommend) and they were awesome. There’s back roads for you to park up near the marquee that your guests don’t see. Royston itself has loads of accommodation and pubs and Barley has a town house registered for marriages which is very oldy- worldy. We had a perfect, super special day, and would do it all over again (if we had the money!) Mr & Mrs Richards xx

Stunning Venue, Amazing Pole Marquee

My husband and I got married at Burloes Hall this year on 28th April.
The weather wasn’t as great as we had hoped but we had an amazing day regardless!
Katherine and Nicole did an amazing job helping us organise our wedding and were always on hand to ask any questions or queries we had!! Even letting us use the marquee some evenings to hold meeting with caterers/DJ etc!
The marquee/gardens looked immaculate and beautiful and we can’t wait to see our professional pictures of us in the secret gardens!
The marquee itself is huge & beautiful inside! It has added extras like a fire pit outside, indoor and outdoor comfortable seating, modern bar, dance floor, sparky star like lighting above the dance floor and mood lighting around the marquee that you can set to your preferred colour!
We spent most of the evening in the marquee due to the weather but we never once felt all crammed in or too crowded & we had over 200 people present! And once inside you didn’t even notice what the weather was like outside, it was so sturdy and warm inside!
Definitely recommend for any wedding/party! The stunning views are amazing - even in the rain!!!!

Amazing Wedding Venue

A beautiful wedding venue with an incredible team of people to put your day together and make it something amazing. We were the last wedding of 2017 and it felt like the first, everything just as perfect as when the marquee was put up back in April. The views and the beautiful gardens made it and our guests absolutely loved it.
We found Burloes by total accident with Alex playing cricket in one of the farm barns and it is one of the few times I say I'm glad he plays!
We could not have asked for more from Burloes or the team, they went above and beyond when I got a huge stain on my wedding dress, they appeared with buckets of soapy water and were so calm when I was frankly the opposite!! We could not recommend it enough, such thoughtful touches throughout, the colourful dimmer lights to match your theme, the fire pit, the matting outside, the cricket nets in the garden, absolutely everything you could want and more for a perfect wedding day. Wish we could do it all again!! Liz & Alex
