Gorgeous venue and amazing staff

Had a pandemic delayed wedding at Hengrave and it was just perfect. Unlike other weddings we have since been to, we didn't have to lift a finger on the day and everything ran utterly seamlessly. The Hengrave and catering staff are all so experienced at giving everyone a perfect day and not letting you see all the hard work that is going on in the background.

Out of this world

The team at Hengrave Hall are incredible they were there for any question that we had for our wedding. The grounds and the Hall itself are kept so well, the decor and options you can have are endless. When it came to our wedding day, the events team were on hand for the bridal suite and the grooms room, the fact that there is a space for both of us ensured we had a great morning getting ready. Also being able to venue for exclusive hire is just incredible and our guests were blown away. A huge thank you to Jenny and Imogen you are both gems , thank you for making our wedding day so special.

Wedding sept 22

The most friendly and kind staff. They know what you need before you do and ensure your wedding day is seamless. They take care of all the bits you couldn’t even imagine and were amazingly accommodating after we had to cancel twice due to covid.
Couldn’t sing a higher praise.

Beyond All Expectations

We got married at Hengrave Hall in October 2021 and couldn't recommend it highly enough. From the moment we picked Hengrave the events team were incredibly helpful, and they supported us when we had to postpone due to the pandemic. On the day everything ran perfectly, and they cannot do enough for you. The food from the catering team was first class, and we cannot thank Hengrave enough for making our wedding day so special. It really was the best day of our lives. Do not hesitate in booking this venue for your wedding!
