Henry Moore Studios & Gardens offers you the unique opportunity to exchange your vows surrounded by some of the most stunning tapestries and sculptures by renowned artist, Henry Moore. Whether you’re planning an extravagant celebration or a more intimate event, we can accommodate weddings of many sizes and styles.

The venue is nestled within 72 acres of charming grounds in Perry Green, providing a stunning Hertfordshire countryside backdrop whilst only being an hour away from the buzz of central London.

The 16th-century timbered barn offers a rustic, yet elegant, setting for your wedding and is licensed to hold civil ceremonies with up to 120 guests. The surrounding lawns provide the perfect space to set up a tipi or marquee. If you choose to hold your reception somewhere else, we offer a ceremony-only option. For a smaller wedding ceremony or reception we can offer two contemporary spaces in our new visitor centre, with panoramic views over the sculpture gardens.

The most impressive feature of the venue is the sculpture gardens featuring some of Henry Moore's iconic work. These provide a stunning backdrop for your cherished wedding photos.

From your very first enquiry through to the big day itself, our wedding planner will be on hand to ensure everything is taken care of throughout the plans and preparations.

    Our Perfect Wedding

    We feel so very lucky to have found Henry Moore as a venue. It's such a beautiful and special place, full of natural, architectural and artistic beauty. Jules, Clare and the team there went out of their way from beginning to end to give us our dream wedding - helping us with all the planning and giving us the benefit of their deep experience. Because they do only a certain amount of weddings every year, we felt absolutely special to them as opposed to being in some wedding factory...
    A side benefit was that there are loads of wonderful small local suppliers (caterers, cake, flowers, etc) in the vicinity - all used to working at this beautiful historic location - and all at prices that pale compared to London. We had guests from all over the world and everyone just raved about the setting and the sophistication of the event. Just the perfect venue!

    Incredible Venue and Wedding Day :)

    Jules, Sarah and the rest of the team are absolutely fantastic. Despite getting married in the middle of a pandemic, we had the most amazing day ever. The whole team went above and beyond to support my husband and I through the difficult time and ensure our day went smoothly and perfectly.
    Everyone is so friendly and my guests had a lovely day in glorious weather!

    The venue is spectacular and I would highly recommend a viewing as you will just fall in love with it and Be confident that you are in good hands with Jules, Sarah and the team.

    Having read some other reviews I agree with the comments; the attention to detail that we received on the day (and the build up) was fab; from being counter down the aisle and reassured at all moments and I never felt pressured or at any point that any question was silly.

    All our love to Jules and Team
    Love Mr and Mrs Cooper-Tovell x

    Henry Moore Studios & Gardens's reply:

    Amelia & Marc, it was so emotional and wonderful to be part of your journey and your special day. The tenterhooks we were on on the lead up to the big day; would we be able to go ahead or not, was a journey we shared with you and in the end we felt like we were guests at your wedding as the excitement was so palpable when we got the go ahead just two weeks beforehand. A very special day indeed, looking forward to seeing you back soon. x

    Can't recommend enough

    What a brilliant venue to celebrate a wedding. Henry Moore Studios & Gardens offer an incredible setting that can be easily dressed and adapted to suit the style of your wedding.

    Jules and her staff were so welcoming, helpful and accommodating, not just during the planning stages and the day of our wedding, but they got stuck in the day before to help us dress the barn and outside areas to our liking - we had a lot of handmade elements to decorate the space (sorry, Jules!) but nothing was too much trouble for them.

    We are big fans of Henry Moore's work, so being able to get so close to his sculptures for our photos was brilliant.

    It is the perfect venue for a perfect day.

    The best day of our lives

    Weddings might inherently be a great day but what made it the most special day of our lives was down to the unique, beautiful Henry Moore venue as well as all the support Jules, Sarah and the team gave to us. Having a mixture of cultures in our wedding, we had a few things outside the norm but as mentioned, the support was unwavering and they catered to us amazingly. I couldn't recommend this venue and Jules/Sarah, highly enough. They also gave recommendations for photographers and so forth, which proved to be fantastic and are things we will cherish forever.

    Best day of our lives

    Hi Jules, It’s all been a huge whirlwind but Paul and I can’t thank you and Sarah enough for your efforts. We can honestly say that we truly had the best day of our lives and it wouldn’t have been possible without you! You and your team worked so incredibly hard and my whole family absolutely loved you guys! I know mum can get a bit over excited so thank you for keeping her in check! I literally can’t sing your praises enough! Your attention to detail was incredible and even just having you there counting everyone in whilst walking down the aisle was so special!!! I don’t think I could have done it without you! I hope you are not too exhausted after the wedding! We are away for a bit but I promise Paul and I will be in touch with proper gifts and thank yous for you and the team once things calm down a bit! I know my mum Cath already spoke to you and she will be writing a letter (once the family head back home) Thanks again from the bottom of both of our hearts x All our love Mr and Mrs Jones x

    Thank you so much

    Hi Jules Hope you are well and everything is going ok with the next big event! We are just back from our honeymoon and have now had some time to reflect on our wedding day. We just wanted to say thank you so much, not just for an amazing event that went so smoothly, but for all of your help in the build up to the day. Your assured and calm approach really helped us feel comfortable right from the first meeting with you, and your planning and coordination with suppliers took a huge weight off our shoulders. We also know both you and Sarah went above and beyond on the Friday to make sure we got everything done, and we really, really appreciate the effort that into went into making the Saturday the perfect day. All our guests had a wonderful time, and kept telling us how impressed they were with the venue. We'll have some official photos to share with you soon. Hope to see you again, as I'm sure we'll be back at the Henry Moore Foundation over the many years to come. All the best Rob & Mel

    A heartfelt thank you

    Dear Jules,

    A heartfelt thank-you from us both for helping to make our day so special yesterday. We are floating on such an incredible high! We will have so many wonderful memories from our incredible wedding day and the stunning Henry Moore Foundation will play a huge part in that. We knew from the minute we visited that it was THE venue for us. It perfectly suited every tiny aspect of what we were trying to achieve and yesterday was like a dream come true for us. The weather of course helped hugely, the whole venue looked magical and we can’t wait to see the photos and video!

    From the moment we first began chatting through our plans with you, way back in April (!) you have been so fantastic to work with; so supportive, so incredibly organised and calming. Our guests have raved about the venue - quite rightly so! Your team were such a pleasure to deal with. A huge-thank you to Connie and everyone else!

    We will always hold the HMF very close to our hearts ………

    Lots of love,

    Samantha & Adam
    xx

    A Truly Special Wedding Venue

    Dearest Jules,

    A huge thank you for making our wedding day the most incredible day we could have ever wished for. Our day wouldn't have gone so smoothly without you both and for that we cannot thank you enough. A special thank you for all your help in the lead up to the wedding. We had lots of feedback from our guests who all thought the Henry Moore Foundation was simply beautiful and a truly special wedding venue.

    We hope you're all well and thanks for everything,

    Love,
    Mr & Mrs Evans

    Just Magical

    Dear Jules,

    I am sorry I have delayed in saying thank you. We have received several cards from guests at Matt and Victoria's wedding saying what a wonderful day it was and what a beautiful venue - and we can only endorse that. You and your team (and sheep) played an enormous part in making the day very special and memorable for us all. The attention to detail and care of your team, for both the ceremony and coming back into the barn for the meal, was just magical, and the whole day ran so smoothly. As a reluctant mother of the bride you personally ensured I stayed stress-free to enjoy the day. So again an enormous thank you to you all at the Henry Moore Foundation.

    Best Wishes,
    Anne Northcott

    The most perfect venue for a celebration

    Hello Jules
    Simon and myself have just returned from a relaxing 3 days in Venice and will soon be taking the girls to Holland. I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and the team at the Henry Moore Foundation for making our day so special. From start to finish we had a relaxing day and have had so many thank you messages from friends and family. One person said it was the best wedding they had ever attended, many said it was a wonderful day and everyone said it was the most perfect venue for a celebration! It was the place that lead people to those comments and I think many guests will be returning to visit the foundation in the near future.
    Your organisation on the day helped everything go to plan we were so pleased with how it went. If only we could do it all again!
    Thank you again
    Hopefully see you soon
    Chloe & Simon
