Weddings at Himley Hall
Himley Hall is an eighteenth century Grade II* listed building set in 180 acres of ‘Capability Brown’ landscaped parkland. As the former stately home of the Earls of Dudley, Himley Hall was a luxurious, up-to-date home, so fashionable that in the 1930s it was a regular weekend retreat for Royal visitors, including Edward, Prince of Wales. In 1934 the Duke and Duchess of Kent spent the first two weeks of their honeymoon at Himley.
Today, couples may marry where Royal newlyweds once took their honeymoon, and photograph their special day in the grounds whereprinces and earls once strolled.
Marriage Rooms: Himley Hall has three main rooms licensed for civil wedding ceremonies:
The Pink Room: Overlooking the terrace gardens and with views towards the Great Lake, the Pink Room was once the Library of Himley Hall. It is suitable for wedding parties of up to 45 people and has the added advantage of private access onto the terrace for photographs or refreshments.
The Green Room: Originally the formal Dining Room of the Earls of Dudley, the elegant Green Room, complete with historic chandelier, is suitable for up to 75 guests. The Green Room overlooks the terrace gardens with stunning views towards the lake.
The Oak Room: Licensed for ceremonies outside the spring and summer exhibition season, the Oak Room is the former Billiard Room and overlooks the courtyard of the Hall. The cosy wood panelled room is licensed for up to 55 guests.
Wedding Receptions at Himley Hall: Wedding receptions may be held in several of Himley Hall’s refurbished rooms, the Green Room, the Oak Room and the North Wing’s Swimming Pool Room.
The North Wing: The refurbished North Wing, which once housed the Earl of Dudley’s swimming pool and cinema, has been transformed into an elegant Art-Deco style banqueting suite and lounge bar. Magnificent 1930’s style bespoke lighting, period decor and stylish soft furnishings highlight the superb attention to detail which has established Himley Hall’s North Wing as a dazzling venue for wedding celebrations and parties.
The Swimming Pool Room includes a dance floor and lighting, specifically designed for evening functions. It can cater for up to 90 guests for a seated meal and between 80-140 guests for an evening event.
The Cinema Bar, so named because it is situated in the Earl’s former private cinema, offers a sumptuous retreat from the lively Swimming Pool Room during your celebration. Exquisite 1930’s style café bar furniture and an elegant ‘birds-eye’ maple and chrome bar are overlooked by images of stars of the silver screen from the Art Deco era.
For wedding breakfast celebrations and evening ‘after wedding’ functions, the choice of Himley Hall’s North Wing will ensure your experience is a special one. Himley Hall offers a superb choice of wedding breakfast menus from fully inclusive three course dinner packages to high quality buffet receptions.
