We have some beautiful ceremony spaces within the house and our formal gardens. The Panelled Hall, offers a more traditional ceremony space whilst The Buchanan Hall is a modern light filed space adorned with an aisle of chandeliers. The ante room and library can also host smaller ceremonies for those looking for an intimate wedding. The main reception space is the Pavilion, which along with the house bar and drinks reception room opens onto the Italian Terrace, the perfect outdoor setting for you and your guests.
The beautiful gardens and grounds that surround the Priory are a picture-perfect backdrop for your chosen wedding date, with dramatic seasonal flowering, throughout the year.

All the little details were just right
Most amazing venue and team. The team were amazing at getting all the little details right and we had a perfect wedding day. They were there to answer all our questions in every step of planning, even a year before the wedding! I asked for some slightly different things such as afternoon tea and bespoke cocktails and they accommodated everything. The staff were amazing and were on hand for all our needs. On a busy wedding day of photos and mingling we were never without a drink! The venue is beautiful and our day was so special.Sent on 29/04/2020

The team went above and beyond our expectations
We had our wedding at Hodsock Priory on the 18th of August 2019 and the team went above and beyond for us. We had a bit of a rocky start to wedding planning, with two bad experiences with other venues. The Hodsock team picked up the pieces and made sure we had the best day ever. I'm actually glad it all happened now, as our wedding was truly amazing.Sent on 29/04/2020

Prompt communication and so helpful
We fell in love with the venue from the moment that we saw it - the historic archway, the beautiful grounds and lake, the high ceilings and the feeling of history throughout the building. From the moment we saw the archway to the moment we left, we didn't stop smiling that day. The experience carried on getting better from there - the Hodsock team were great to deal with. Prompt communication, helpful suggestions, great senses of humour and always a welcoming smile when we visited for planning meetings. Accommodation is good, and getting better as more rooms within the priory are refurbished and made available for use - for our wedding day there were four grand rooms within the priory building itself, including a spectacular bridal suite and a dedicated bridal 'getting ready room' on the day itself. The food was incredible. Some of our family and friends have sent us photos of the "inspired by Hodsock" meals that they've cooked since the wedding! Dietary requirements were catered for without a fuss, and we even had some vegan wine provided for one of our tables. As the happy couple, we were looked after brilliantly from start to finish without ever feeling that the staff were hovering around, and I got so many comments from our wedding guests about how lovely the staff had been. As soon as we left the ceremony room as a married couple, they were there with glasses of champagne for us and a huge smile. The Hodsock team truly felt/feel like part of 'our' wedding team, not vendors. If it hasn't come across clearly enough - we had an absolutely PERFECT wedding day, and I would highly recommend this venue and this team to make your big day as incredible as ours.Sent on 29/04/2020
