Situated close to Bedford, Bedfordshire, Hinwick House is a refined wedding venue ideal for those who appreciate vintage-meets-vogue aesthetics.

Hinwick House is an incredible, unique historic Grade I listed wedding venue, built in 1710 and modelled on the original “Buckingham Palace”. In order to provide for and fund the maintenance and upkeep of this Grade I listed protected historic monument, select private stays and events may be allowed by prior arrangement on the grounds of the estate, the victorian wing, outbuildings and some sections of the main house.

It is an ideal venue for those who appreciate vintage-meets-vogue aesthetics. While this beautiful Queen Anne estate dates back to 1710, it boasts a number of architectural features that are reminiscent of the Victorian style and has only recently been renovated to the highest degree. Your friends and family are bound to be inspired by the property's breathtaking Georgian architecture, elegant event spaces, and scenic surroundings. As the property normally serves as a private family home, the property owners and the event suppliers will pull out all the stops to make your wedding as special as can be, at this unique countryside getaway.

Facilities and Capacity
While the estate normally serves as a private residence, for weddings and special events, Hinwick House is able to accommodate intimate and large weddings, capable of hosting several hundred people. The estate's Queen Anne section is greatly enhanced by its sophisticated and airy formal rooms, many of which are suitable for ceremonies or drinks receptions. The Great Hall is located in the house's Victorian wing and can set the scene for receptions and wedding breakfasts. If you would prefer to marry outside, a charming marquee can be set up in the private courtyard area. Soon-to-be newlyweds are welcome to make a weekend of their nuptials and can stay in one of the luxurious bedrooms in the main house or cottages.

Services Offered
With your vision for your dream wedding in mind, as a location for that dream day, Hinwick House aims to transform your dreams into realities. Romance, refinement, and relaxation are bywords here, and we look forward to seeing you enjoy what the facilities have to offer. You can work with a wide range suppliers to create a bespoke wedding experience, and they are happy to provide planning and coordination services. In addition, you are free to bring in outside caterers of your choosing.

Rented out the venue for a wedding and was very happy.

We rented this venue for the week for a wedding. We had guests stay over and everything went smoothly. Dillon is a massive help and was always quick to get back to us if we needed any help. The cleaning lady was also very helpful and kind.

Overall, we enjoyed our time at Hinwick House and strongly recommend it for anyone looking at a venue to host their wedding.

A wonderful weekend at Hinwick House

Here's what I wrote after our recent hire of Hinwick House:

We wanted to write and say thank you so much for all your help with our recent hire of Hinwick House. Working with you was such a pleasure and you made everything very easy to organise. It was a pleasure to meet Camilla in your absence and we were very grateful to her for her help in sorting things out when we needed more hairderyers.

The house looked stunning when we arrived - very clean and tidy, and all the rooms made up exactly right. Our guests were completely blown away by its beauty, and all of them enjoyed every moment of the weekend. I think we all felt it was a real privilege to be able to be there. Our guests particularly enjoyed the themed bedrooms with interesting artefacts and papers, giving some sense of the history of the house, and lots of impromptu tours were provided!

We were lucky to have one day of good weather. We enjoyed the lawns and the gardens, had Sporting Targets over to do shooting and had lots of tennis, croquet and cricket going on. On the rainy day some people enjoyed a good wet walk, whilst others enjoyed using the plentiful indoor space for games, quizzes, reading, and general relaxing.

We were very glad to have the housekeepers and they did a wonderful job of turning the house back to its beautiful state after a very long and busy evening party the night before!

We especially wanted to thank you for the recommendation of Albi Ison whose catering and care for guests is out of this world. We ended up using the Great Hall for all our main meals because of the weather and it looked spectacular - and different - each time. We then enjoyed leisurely breakfasts and afternoon tea in the Dining Room (as well as the world's largest game of Perudo), so made the most of both beautiful spaces. Before and after dinner we used the main rooms which comfortably accommodated our 40 guests and I know good use was made of the games room too.

Hinwick House is a very special place and we had a truly memorable weekend there. Our guests gave the highest paise for everything. We all had the most wonderful time celebrating in such glorious surroundings.

I know that we and our guests will be recommending Hinwick House to all our friends!

Our only sadness is that the weekend is over!

Amazing venue to stay at and host our wedding

We could not have been happier with this venue. We had around 50+ people staying on site and were able to use the great hall, as well as an on site marquee to host multiple wedding events over the space of a week. Dillon was incredibly helpful and very easygoing throughout. I cannot recommend this place enough

Thank you

My husband and I wanted to thank you and all your staff for looking after us all so well at Henry and Catherine’s wedding last Saturday and for
being so accommodating in the few days running up to the day itself.
The house and grounds looked very impressive on the day and everywhere looked so well maintained.
It was so nice to have the house and grounds to ourselves and our guests but to also know that you and your staff were there if we needed help with anything.
Everybody who came to the wedding loved the venue and of course the weather was good too, not too hot!
The staff you hired to cook the breakfast the next morning were excellent and everyone enjoyed their full English breakfast very much.
Please pass on our thanks to all the staff working on the day, it all made for a wonderful occasion and one we will remember for years to come.
