A wedding day of dreams

The most perfect venue. If you are considering Hylands Estate, book in a viewing and you will not be disappointed. We are so happy we picked you, such a magical venue, estate and house.

The estate is spectacular, maintained beautifully and it was the most picturesque venue for our wedding day. The bridal suite, bridesmaids rooms and grooms rooms are renovated to perfection and tie in perfectly with the essence of the venue. No other venues within close proximity compare!

So many photo opportunities, a grand venue and we are ever so grateful to Tracey who coordinated our wedding and I can not thank Grace enough for her tremendous efforts on the day. The staff are honestly so lovely, experienced and great at what they do. They went above and beyond and we are forever grateful.

Our guests really enjoyed the day, we were also very lucky with the weather, sunshine and blue skies.

Honestly, it was so beautiful I wish we could do it all again.

Wishing the team the very best for the future.

Thank you,

Anisah and Ridwan

Venue Sound limits your entertainment

This venue has a sound restriction which could affect the quality of your entertainment. Be mindful, the sound limiter is set too low. My experience was not good. We could barely hear the DJ & live band

We all had a fabulous day....

My daughter had her wedding at Hylands House and although I don't normally do this sort of thing, I felt strongly that I wanted to say thank you for the professional way from beginning to end, that you dealt with us. On the day, nothing was too much trouble and we were looked after very well. You were all so lovely. We had a fabulous day in such a wonderful place.
