The Perfect Venue
So grateful for Hamswell House! It was the perfect venue for our wedding. We are left with endless positives from choosing this venue - Rupert (the host) was extremely responsive, informative, patient, generous and devoted to making everything perfect for us. The venue is stunning and very well maintained, there is no corkage fee, it has everything to host the full day in one location, there are a number of amazing vendors that Rupert has information about which contribute to making it the most perfect day/venue! The layout lends itself well to having different spaces for different sections of the day. On a personal level, Rupert is a very charismatic and generous host! He made an effort to offer storage space prior to the event, early access to the space, parking attendants, communication for bands and caterers. Thank you so much!Sent on 21/08/2021

The day could not have been more perfect
We had our wedding at Hamswell House this summer and the day could not have been more perfect. The venue is stunning and felt truly special. I loved it and knew it was right for us the moment we viewed it! There are plenty of lovely areas for photographs and for guests to explore. We had our ceremony in the orangery and it felt so intimate and personal. It's a really gorgeous building and we had guests watching from the lawn outside. Rupert was so attentive and friendly every time we came to visit and always on hand if we needed anything. Absolutely loved the dogs too! All in all I couldn't recommend Hamswell House more for an elegant, classic, country wedding.Sent on 24/10/2019
