About Ettington Park Hotel

Alderminster, Stratford Upon Avon
Warwickshire, CV37 8BU

Set in 40 acres of beautiful private grounds in the heart of Warwickshire, welcome to the 4 Red Star Ettington Park. A stunning Neo-Gothic mansion ideal for your wedding day, the venue boasts history that spans over 900 years. With beautiful rooms and picturesque grounds, it is the perfect setting for your special day.

Boasting a regal and extravagant décor throughout, Ettington Park will allow you to experience the ultimate romantic wedding day. Well-appointed function rooms with ornately detailed ceilings spill out onto pristine lawns, where you can pose for breath-taking wedding photos.

Although the Norman chapel can be used for blessings, weddings are normally carried out in either the elegant surroundings of the house itself. The enchanting and intimate Library or the spacious South room are available for you to say ‘I do’ – or you can choose from the two outdoor locations!

The stunning Orangery, located in the gardens or the ancient Bell Tower next to the Normal Chapel, both make for the most angelic of settings to begin your married life together!

Every wedding is uniquely special, and we believe your day should reflect this. You will be able to tailor your day, simply tell us what would make your wedding perfect and we’ll help you to create it.

For the ultimate exclusivity, you can take over the whole house where the only people present are your guests! Our bedrooms, lounges, restaurant and grounds are included to allow you to live out your wedding dreams. Our team of dedicated co-ordinators will take care of arrangements and make the whole process seamless.

For more information on the kinds of weddings Ettington Park can host, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

We have some wonderful memories
Venue Service

By Sue & Ade, on 17 Mar 2020Date of Wedding - 06 Mar 2020

We can't thank you all enough for the wonderful day which you created and couldn't have wished for any thing better, from start to finish everything was superb from the magical setting to the beautiful rooms and the unexpected sunny weather on the day. Every member of the team couldn't have given us any more and for this we thank you. All our family commented on what a great place Ettington is and how they enjoyed the time there with us.

The whole experience surpassed all expectations.

By Careena & Gary, on 18 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 14 Feb 2020

We decided to have our Wedding at Ettington Park on Valentines Day 2020. From start to finish, we could not have chosen a better place for our celebration. Our day was superbly planned with help from Janet who became our wedding organiser. She was so helpful that we did not need to enlist the help of a wedding planner due to her considerate and knowledgeable expertise. We had a fantastic time planning and organising it with the team there. They even made our wedding cake for us and all of the food was delicious! On the day itself we could not have asked for a better team of staff to look after us and our guests. The whole day was immaculately executed by Cliff, the Wedding and Banqueting Manager who kept everything running on time and ensured we had the best day ever. Each and every member of staff helping on the day showed outstanding customer service, were super friendly and super efficient, meaning we did not have to worry about a thing. Stand out members of staff were Sam on the bar, Daimon on the door (just to namecheck a couple as I cannot remember everyones name). Even the lone bar man at the end of the evening at 2am was still cheerful and smiling. Everyone said it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to and we put that down to choosing Ettington Park as our wedding venue. We knew it was going to be good, but we didn't know it was going to be that good. The whole experience surpassed all expectations.

THANK YOU SO MUCH

By Daniel & Amy, on 23 Mar 2020Date of Wedding - 30 Dec 2019

Thank you so much for everything you did to help us pull off an amazing wedding reception. We and all of our guests had an absolute blast and it's all thanks to your hard work and dedication. We were so impressed with your attention to detail and organisation in helping us accommodate guests from near and far, it wasn't an easy task but it all worked out perfectly in the end! For all of this and everything else thank you from the bottom of our hearts

We both had an amazing time.

By Chris & Victoria, on 30 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 07 Dec 2019

The venue was beautiful and all the staff were so helpful and accommodating (Special mention to Janet, Cliff, Mike, Darren & Damon, but everyone we encountered was great) All of the guests have commented on how lovely Ettington was. The food was beautiful and all the elements of the package were provided well. Having so much of it done through you guys made it easier to relax. Having the Friday night meal and Sunday breakfast with quite a few of the guests made it an entire weekend of celebration. The variety and decoration of all the rooms made it feel special and nice surprises to the guests as they moved around the property.

We had a fantastic day
Venue Service

By Michael & Dominika, on 06 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 14 Oct 2019

We wanted to thank everyone at Ettington for all your fantastic work and help throughout our wedding planning and day! We had a fantastic day and couldn't have picked a better place! All of our guests commented on how beautiful a spot Ettington was, with a lot of our guests calling it "the castle"! We fell in love with Ettington from the first moment we saw it and it was the most fantastic and breathtaking venue for our wedding reception, the architecture being so beautiful both inside and out that the rainy weather did not put a dampen on our day or our wedding photos, in fact it only complimented! (we'll forward on the photos as soon as we have them). The day ran very smoothly and all stresses were alleviated by the fantastic hospitality team, we wanted to especially thank Zoe who looked after us incredibly well and made us feel at ease throughout the day. The food was exquisite (honestly the best meal we've ever had)! We're just sorry it was over so soon! We are definately going to be coming back for our anniversaries in the years to come.

Perfect Venue
Venue Service

By Charlotte & Nigel, on 23 Jan 2020Date of Wedding - 06 Oct 2019

Ettington Park Hotel was our perfect venue, not only are the grounds amazing, but the staff made our day everything we hoped it would be. Becky was our wedding coordinator and made sure everything went to plan. But every other member of staff contributed in their own way. Including a spare shirt being given to my friend who spilt red wine down his shirt. The food was brilliant and we loved using the facilities the day before and day after. There were a few surprises for us from the hotel that really added to the whole experience. A whole hearted thank you for making our wedding day everything we hoped it would be.

Thank you so much
Venue Service

By Susie & James, on 03 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 31 Aug 2019

We had an absolutely perfect day! Please pass on a huge thank you to Cliff and the team, they did such a brilliant job. All staff were fantastic and most guests commented on how great they were, as well as how beautiful the venue was. The whole day was perfect. Cliff calmed me on the morning with how in control and well informed he was - and subsequently, although I did not speak to him much as I was so busy, I can tell how important he was in the smooth running of the day. On the day itself, it was in no small part due to the professionalism of the staff and the smooth running of events that I was able to be very relaxed and really enjoy the day and take it all in. That is so important. Staff weren’t intrusive at any point but were always there for any requests or to make sure we were happy. The food was delicious - the main dinner, and breakfast both mornings. Everyone was wowed by the venue and the grounds, and we felt so lucky and special having the whole place to ourselves. Thank you so much to everyone for making it such a wonderful day!!

Really felt at home and part of the family
Venue Service

By Nicola & Matt, on 28 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 23 Aug 2019

From the first time we visited Ettington Park Hotel we were made to feel incredibly welcome. We instantly knew it was the perfect venue for our wedding, not just by the grandeur of the buildings and the beautiful views but by the team being so passionate about their jobs, even the head chef proudly taking the time to explain his wedding tasters to every perspective couple visiting that day. It was great to meet Becky our wedding co-ordinator on Day 1 too, as we immediately could tell she would be super helpful and support us every step of the way, which she did. Becky was friendly and efficient and really easy to communicate with over the course of the wedding planning. She was very patient with us and went above and beyond to make our day so special. On our wedding day we really felt at home and part of the family with the whole team being as excited as we were for the wedding. Special thank you's to Cliff, Damien, Stephen and Thomas for all helping us settle in the day before the wedding and for really getting involved on the day. There are other staff that were great too but sadly I cant remember their names. We had the most wonderful day with nothing being too much trouble for the team at Ettington, thank you we will be forever grateful for this.

Blown away with the venue
Venue Service

By Helen & Colin, on 07 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 17 Aug 2019

As far as the day went - it was more amazing than I thought it would be! And we were so lucky with the weather - considering it was raining at 10:50, by 11:10 the sun was shining and stayed with us for the rest of the day. It really did make the day being able to get wed in the Bell tower and to have the use of the wonderful grounds for all our guests. We even had a visit from several deer both during the day and in the evening when some of our guests made their way home. Everyone was blown away with the venue, the rooms and the welcome received from the team at the hotel. Stephen was so super helpful in getting all the stuff sorted on the Friday and helping with keeping things running smoothly on Saturday. And as for Cliff - what a legend he is!! He, and the team were all fantastic throughout the day and evening. The food was also fantastic; we have had so many complements about it being the best wedding food people have ever had.

Beautiful venue & an amazing day
Venue Service

By Yulia & Jim, on 18 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 10 Aug 2019

> We’ve just about recovered from a whirlwind of a weekend (almost literally with the strong wind) and wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all of the staff at Ettington who helped make our day unforgettable. > > Despite all of the challenges with the wind and last minute changes to a few things here and there, all of the staff there went out of their way to accommodate us. A special thanks must go to the porter who found the vintage table for the ceremony, Yulia nearly cried in delight when she saw it so I think it was fair to say it was mission accomplished! We had such an amazing day, so please pass on our gratitude to them all. > > All of our guests commented at what a beautiful venue Ettington is, so I don’t doubt you’ll be getting a lot of recommendations in the future.

Making our fairytale come true
Venue Service

By Shamim and Jonathan, on 05 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2019

Jonathan and I had the pleasure of getting married at Ettington on Sunday 4th August. We wanted to send a huge thank you to all the staff who made our day so special, making our fairytale come true. We arrived on the Saturday to be greeted by such lovely smiles starting at the reception for check in all through to the restaurant staff who served our drinks and meals. We were made to feel welcome by all and no request was too much. A huge thank you to Cliff for keeping us so calm during the morning of the wedding when plans started to change unexpectedly, you’ll never know how much your words of reassurance at the time meant and got us through. Thank you for all your attention to detail to the extent of making sure my veil was perfect before walking down the aisle. Thank you to Ollie for going through all the organising stages, nothing was too much bother whether that was through emails, face to face or telephone conversations. Thank you to all bar staff and waiting on staff who looked after our guests with such professionalism. The food tasted fantastic everything we mentioned during our menu tasting was addressed to every minor detail thank you so much. The external suppliers we used were also very complimentary of the service they received in support with getting their equipment up to the long gallery. Our day was perfect and we have all of you to thank for that. Look forward to coming to Ettington to make more memories.
