Exclusive. Enchanting. Elegant

Let Hengrave Hall make your dreams a reality… this stunning Grade 1* listed Tudor mansion is situated within an impressive 350-acre estate and is an exclusive use wedding venue, which exudes historic charm complete with its own idyllic church.

The church of St John Lateran, only a few steps away from the main house is available to couples wishing to get married within or have a blessing. For those balmy summer weddings, the lake offers the most breath-taking outside ceremony location, think whimsical, complete with wildflowers and the lake as the backdrop there really is no setting like it! If those ceremony options are not enough couples also are able to choose from many of the ground floor rooms in the main house which are also licensed for Civil Ceremonies (up to 150 people).

Intimate or grand? Church wedding or civil ceremony? Outside or inside? The choice really is all yours.

With endless outside space, the formal gardens on the Sunkissed West Terrace boarded beautifully by the sumptuous, perfumed David Austin Roses and adorned with an abundance of lavender, really is firm a favourite for a summer drinks reception. Complete with a selection of garden games to entertain your guests while you slip off to get the all-important photos! The grandeur of the inner courtyard centred in the middle of the Main Hall offers an intimate space, for pre ceremony, reception drinks or a cocktail hour after the wedding breakfast before evening festivities kick off! For the wedding breakfast, the Long Gallery with its white wooden panelling and crystal chandeliers offers the most versatile space for you to enjoy your wedding breakfast for up to 148 people. In addition, the central courtyard is very popular in the Summer months, offering couples the feel of a destination wedding but in the middle of the English countryside, a dream come true for many!

    The Biggest Thank You

    We wanted to say the biggest thank you for making our wedding day so very special and memorable for us. Melissa right from the start you made the whole experience enjoyable and stress free and throughout the planning process the whole team were so incredibly helpful and supportive we are really grateful. On the day Melissa you were an absolute star, it was so lovely of you to be there every step of the way and to help with my dress down the aisle and I never dreamt how much the Hengrave Team would be able to assist with setting up and were blown away when we arrived to find it all set up perfectly. The whole day ran so smoothly and all the team were polite and professional and nothing was to much trouble. Our families and friends have not stopped complimenting on how amazing you and all the venue team were. Please also pass on our thanks to the wider Hengrave team, housekeeping and the meet and greet stewards. The bedrooms were stunning and every guest was met with a smile up the drive. We can not recommend Hengrave Hall enough, it really was the perfect venue for the best day of our lives.

    Incredible wedding

    I am not sure I have the words to thank you enough for all of your help and support to make our wedding on 26 October 2018 so special.
    From the initial booking through to the two years of planning, to the actual day, you were fantastic and make the whole experience really enjoyable.
    We had the most incredible wedding day and didn't have to worry about anything which is such a credit to you and the Milsoms team. Hengrave is the most beautiful venue and we truly feel honoured to have been able to have our special day there. Thank you again for everything you did, I will miss all the planning!!

    The most amazing venue

    We had our wedding here Easter weekend 2018. It was the most wonderful day despite the rain- the venue really is amazing in any weather. From the food, to the venue itself, to the accommodation and of course the staff, I really could not recommend this venue highly enough!

    From the moment we stepped foot on the property we knew this was the one for us. The team made everything completely stress free. No matter the question or request nothing was too much trouble and the answer was always yes. If you're looking at venues you may have realised that if you want anything extra done it usually comes with a load of extra hassle and extra cost -not the case here!

    So many of our guests have told us what's fantastic day they had and it was the best wedding they've ever been to. The recommended suppliers at hengrave are all amazing and if you do choose this as your venue you most definitely will not regret it!

    Service like no other. A magical experience.

    From the moment we visited Hengrave on an open day we knew it was something truly special. Catriona and the girls made us feel incredibly welcome without the "sales pitch" you can expect when viewing wedding venues. As we got back in the car, we knew we had found the place we wanted to say our vows and couldn't wait to get planning!
    The whole process of planning the wedding was slick and stress-free, and whilst you might consider an option like this to be more expensive, the difference wasn't vast, and, in the run up to a wedding you really cannot put a price on feeling excited instead of stressed out.
    On the day of the wedding I felt like a real A-lister from the moment I arrived, and enjoyed getting ready with my mum and bridesmaids in the stunning bridal suite whilst the boys played pool in the 'boy's room' and we were incredibly well looked after. The day itself ran so smoothly, all the staff from the manager, bar staff and caterers helped guide our guests from canapes to dinner and dancing whilst keeping drinks topped up, plates full and music playing all whilst appearing almost invisible - managing to run it all like ninjas!
    Our guests were completely blown away, from arriving along the stunning driveway, the gorgeous church, incredible food and sumptuous bedrooms, everyone has been constantly remarking on how it was truly a 5 star wedding. My husband and I absolutely love hosting parties and we are so lucky to have found the most incredible venue for the biggest party of our lives!
    Thank you to all the staff at Hengrave and Milsoms - I cannot recommend them enough to make your big day the best ever, for you and your guests!
