    Day Went Seamlessly!

    We held our wedding here on the 7th September 2019. Only got engaged in the February so wasn’t really sure whether this venue would be available, nevertheless we pushed on and arranged an appointment to see house and grounds. Grace was marvelous, very welcoming and re-assuring that she and her father Christopher would ensure that the day went seamlessly and that all would be well. They were absolutely true to their word. It was a magical day. The venue cannot be matched – the house is beautifully grand yet intimate, and you can see that it has been maintained with a level of integrity honoring its past. The grounds are well kept with an expanse of lawn with croquet to boot and well maintained topiary which always looks very smart. Then you have a cute little bridge going over the river to the Island where they traditionally house the marquee when required. Our marquee was perfect, we are all wowed! It’s a little gem in Godmanchester next door to Huntingdon. I could not recommend it more highly – feel very blessed to have been able to have my wedding there as it’s a private house and they elect to do only a limited number of weddings a year. Thank you, Grace and Christopher and the rest of the team. Best day of my life!

    The Most Perfect Wedding Day!

    We had the most perfect wedding day in May 2019 - I would highly recommend them. Grace was helpful and kind every step of the way and we truly felt like we mattered, not that we were just another number. The venue was beautiful and everyone commented on how special it was. It really is a unique and wonderful venue and I feel so lucky to have had out wedding there! Thank you so much for helping to create such an amazing day. Love Charlotte and James xxxxx

    Everything Ran Perfectly!

    We were looking for a venue for our reception following our ceremony in Cambridge. We fell in love with Island Hall on our first visit (even on a very cold, drizzly day in January!). It’s such a beautiful house. The island location surrounded by trees looking out over the meadow is magical. Christopher and Grace made the whole process so easy, giving very helpful tips from their wealth of experience. They have great relationships with Fairytale Marquees and Cambridge Dining which meant everything ran perfectly. The marquee and grounds looked stunning on the day of the wedding, surpassing all my expectations. We and our guests loved every minute of the day thanks to the Vane Percy family’s warm hospitality. Leaving by boat was such a fun way to end the night!

    A Warm Welcome For You & Your Guests Awaits!

    "What a splendid home!!! I say home rather than house as Grace and her father were the warmest hosts and we have had so many lovely comments about the exchanges held with guests on the day and the admiration of just the totally amazing Island Hall.”

    Dream Venue

    “Island Hall was the first wedding venue we looked at and as soon as we stepped inside the spectacular house we knew we'd found our dream venue. The house itself (including the magnificent staircase!) was very beautiful but not overbearing.

    The immaculate gardens were the perfect setting for our August wedding in the sunshine and all of our guests absolutely loved the venue - with most having never known of it despite us living nearby. (This was one of the many things I loved about Island Hall - not many people have heard of it so your wedding is truly unique). Heading over the bridge to the Island was very magical and felt like a fairytale. Here we celebrated all night with our loved ones.

    A huge thank you to Christopher and Grace for all of their advice and guidance with the planning and a special mention to Brian for ensuring our day went off without a hitch! A truly hidden gem in the heart of Cambridgeshire and we couldn't recommend highly enough!”

    A Day To Remember

    "Island hall is a hidden gem. A beautiful personable wedding venue that delivers a day you will always remember. The house and gardens are immaculately kept which means we have the most stunning wedding photos. Christopher and Grace were so helpful in the build up to the wedding and the staff on the day went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. We have received so many compliments from our family and friends about the delicious food and stunning venue. Our day was better than we could have ever imagined it would be!"

    Perfect Wedding Venue

    "Far more than a perfect Wedding venue, Island Hall is personal; supportive; helpful and inspiring assistance from the outset was wonderful and much appreciated. This was backed up with a "can do" attitude that helped to make dreams come true. Grace, Christopher and Brian, thank you so much for everything!"

    Love At First Sight!

    “From the moment we met the owners, and stepped foot inside, we loved the house. It was grand yet simple, with a wonderful space for the ceremony, even with a few choices of rooms which was nice.
    The facilities offered are great, from the side rooms for the interviews, to even having a bedroom/dressing room to get ready in. The grounds to the rear of the house are simply stunning! Extremely well maintained and a wonderful, wonderful place to be. It’s so charming, and feels like you're in a completely different world once you're inside.

    Christopher, Grace and Brian were wonderful in both helping us get set up for the day, and also on the day. From being supportive of any ideas we wanted to helping us arrange things on the day they were there every step and it made it much more enjoyable for us.

    We had a wonderful day, and Island hall and its owners were such a huge part of that and can’t recommend this place highly enough! If you've any doubt if its right, just visit and you'll fall in love like everyone else does!

    Thank you Christopher, Grace and Brian!”

    A Very Special Place

    We chose Island Hall for our reception wedding venue in June 2017 and can honestly say we could not have had a more perfect day. The house and grounds are stunning - we loved having drinks on the gorgeous lawn outside the house with views of the river, and then moving onto the island for a marquee reception. The ground provided so many opportunities for amazing photographs and it felt like us and our guests were in our own little magical world. I must have driven past Island Hal on the main road hundreds of times, not realising what a special place I was passing by. Christopher and Grace Vane Percy could not have been more helpful in helping us to organise our day and making us feel welcome and at home. Highly recommended either for a visit or to host a special event. Thank you. Island Hall will always have a very special place in our hearts."

    Atmosphere is Purely Amazing

    "Me & My now husband have had the pleasure of getting to know Christopher & Grace for nearly 2years now. When we first walk into the island hall we knew it was for us, the beautiful period decor and family atmosphere is purely amazing. We couldnt thank grace enough for all the help and organisation for our big day all our dreams come true (its like having your own personal wedding planner, you tell grace what u want and she helps you find away of it happening). Our family and friends was so amazed by the venue and how smoothly everything went. We truelly recommend the island hall for any special occasion! You will never come across a venue so driven to help your day be so magical and perfect. We will surely Miss the island hall but plan to go back very soon."

    Ideal For A Chilled Wedding

    "We had no idea where we wanted to get married, but we knew we wanted a chilled, laid back wedding. When we found Island Hall we knew it was something special.

    On going to meet Grace at the venue, we could only imagine ourselves here, and didn't bother going to look at any other venues...we knew this was the one...it was love at first sight!

    Grace and Christopher were amazing! They helped with the finest of details, from Christopher sailing us from our church to Island Hall on the 'Island Queen' down the river Ouse, to letting us hide our surprise surfboard wedding presents from one another and being in total cahoots with us!

    We were able to get the most unimaginable photographs of us strolling around the grounds, in amongst the weeping willow and a perfect sunset shot as the sun set over Porte Holme meadow - the exact place we had our first date.

    Our guests commented on how friendly and hospitable the Vane Percy's were and what an incredible secret Huntingdon had to offer in Island Hall. Zak and I have lived in Huntingdon all of our lives and never imagined such beauty lay behind this grand house in Godmanchester!

    Being able to say we sailed from our church to venue and then had our wedding breakfast on an Island is not something a lot of people can say, and we're so grateful that we can!

    We absolutely love Island Hall - we smile every time we drive past it and always walk over to the river bank on the meadow opposite, sighing in disbelief that we got married there!"

    Ideal English Island Destination!

    "Island Hall was the first and only wedding venue we visited. Despite being very cold and there being snow on the ground, we fell in love with it straight away. It was perfect and so close to home, the house was beautiful and the Island was the blank canvas that we were looking for. For a grand manor house, there was something very homely and comfortable about it and I felt instinctively that our guests would feel comfortable there too. Being Fijian, Tai also loved the idea of having the marquee on an ‘Island’!"

    Wow What A Venue!

    "Wow what a venue! We were delighted to have our wedding so close to our home at the beautiful Island Hall in Godmanchester. We had our ceremony at St Mary the Virgin Church, just a stone throw away from the venue. We had drinks on arrival on the stunning gardens, followed by the wedding reception across the bridge and on the private Island. This venue gives the perfect, picturesque and tranquil setting, surrounded by the river and wildlife. The venue is a naturally beautiful blank canvas; yet can be easily accommodated to your individual preferences.

    Christopher Vane Percy, and his daughter Grace were extremely helpful from start to finish. They made sure everything ran smoothly, and helped with much needed advice along the way.

    We could not have picked a better venue to share our special day with our friends and family. This is truly a hidden gem, which we couldn’t recommend enough. A huge thank you to Christopher and Grace"
