Whether you are looking for an intimate wedding venue or you are planning a large wedding celebration, here at Hatfield House you will find the perfect setting for the wedding of your dreams.
Set within the sprawling acres of Hatfield Park in Hertfordshire where Queen Elizabeth I spent much of her childhood, our dramatic and two very different venues provide equally eye-catching wedding venues. The historic and grand Old Palace or the contemporary Riding School both provide a unique, timeless and magical backdrop for your wedding celebrations in Hertfordshire.
Built in 1497, the striking Old Palace is the perfect setting for a grand reception with up to 250 guests. For slightly smaller occasions, the modern Riding School can accommodate up to 120 guests. Both venues are licensed to hold civil ceremonies so you can hold your whole day of celebrations in one beautiful location.
Hatfield House’s superb surroundings are beautiful in every season. The glorious gardens and the stunning park provide breath-taking backdrops for your treasured photographs.
When you plan your wedding at Hatfield House, the whole team will ensure you have your perfect day. We strive to provide your dream day and help you to create cherished memories to last a lifetime.

Alice- please can you particularly thank George, the chef and the catering team. The food was delicious, the team who served were very professional, everything went smoothly. George and Kate were absolutely incredible! They really looked after us and went out of their way to make sure the day went as we wanted it to go. Many of our guests commented on how lovely Hatfield House was.
