The most amazing venue
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Hart, on 23 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 31 Mar 2018

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!

Really Beautiful
Venue Service

By Pat Andrews, on 02 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Sep 2017

I just wanted to say a big thank you for a really beautiful day. My Grandson had their wedding on the 2nd September and apart from the lovely setting, your staff were so quietly efficient and professional - and even the weather was perfect! So thank you again for a memorable day. P.s. Food was great too.

We will always treasure our memories from Hengrave

We had so many comments on how amazing the venue was, how beautiful grounds were and how helpful the staff were. We could not of asked for more, the day ran so smoothly and that was purely down to the great organisation of your team.

No chairs in waiting room, ordered to leave dining area after meal, no chairs inside, had to sit on stairs during evening party.

A very special team

Dear Cat, Melissa, Shona, Hettie and all the Dream Team! We just wanted to thank you for making Hannah and Andy's weddings day such a special occasion. From replacing veils, to sorting out MOTs. You are on hand offering to help and support in any way you can. However what means most is the small, invisible kindnesses and details you all deliver in a completely seamless way. You are a very special team, and for that we thank you very so much!

So special and faultless
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Enticknap, on 23 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 26 Nov 2016

Thank you so much for all of your hard work to make our wedding day so special and faultless (apart from the darn wasp!) It was such a slick operation and it really made our day. We had the BEST day of our lives and we are so sad that it is over. Thank you once again for everything.

Truly memorable
Venue Service

By Gill and Paul Campbell, Grooms parents, on 15 Jan 2016

Just a little note to say a huge thank you, for the wonderful way in which all the team at Hengrave looked after everyone so well, throughout that lovely weekend at the end of November. From the time you welcomed us all on the Friday, and the delicious (and well appreciated) buffet that your chef provided that evening, to the amazing care and attention you gave everyone throughout Saturday and Sunday was truly memorable, sensitive and thoughtful. Thank you once again.

All the guests were in admiration of the venue
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Dadd, on 05 Jan 2016
