Lainston House is a luxurious wedding venue in Hampshire. Licensed for Civil Ceremonies, this venue is also available for Exclusive Use. The 17th Century Dawley Barn is the perfect setting for your special day, with everything in one place.

Just two miles north-west of Winchester, Lainston House is a breathtakingly beautiful 17th Century country house nestling in 63 acres of stunning Hampshire countryside. As you turn into the long, sweeping, tree-lined drive, you are immediately transported to a world far away from the hustle and bustle of every day life.

Delicate archways and loggias frame the picture perfect entrance and a small amble reveals a beautiful 12th century chapel ruin. With the mile-long avenue of lime trees as a backdrop there are stunning photo opportunities all year round.

Fully licensed to conduct civil ceremonies and partnerships, you can exchange your vows as well as have your wedding reception with us – and with the Hampshire Chef of the Year at your disposal, you can be sure to enjoy exquisite cuisine.

For a wedding in the warmer months, picture guests sipping bubbly and savouring delicious canapés on the rolling lawns and terraces or if it’s a winter wedding, guests can mingle in the perfectly appointed Drawing Room or Dawley Barn sipping mulled wine and enjoying the cosy opulence of the hotel.

All of our rooms and suites are individually designed so no two are the same – and if you are excited by the idea of your very own country house, Lainston House can be reserved on an “Exclusive Use” basis.

    Lainston House is Incredible

    I have so many compliments it's hard to know where to start!
    Firstly, the venue itself it stunning! The barn where we had our ceremony and meal was just lovely. The wedding was at Christmas so we had fairy lights and christmas tree galore, which made it feel extra cosy and even more special!
    Secondly, the team (led by Michelle, Katherine and Chris) were absolutely amazing every step of the way. Great at what they do and just genuinely lovely people!
    Thirdly, the food was delicious! I knew it would be from our menu tasting but we also had so many comments from guests on how much they enjoyed it.
    I couldn't have asked for more and can't wait to go back for our anniversary!

    Such a special day...

    Henderson and I want to thank you so much for the work you did to help us plan our wedding. The day on Saturday was absolutely perfect, a sentiment echoed by all our guests. The weather of course was perfect, but so was the ceremony and the lunch as well as our two night stay. I did not manage to thank the two people who did so much on the day, organising the lunch and serving our food. With all our guests leaving when they did, by the time I got back to the Hampshire room they had gone. So I hope you will please pass on our enormous thanks for everything they did. Nothing was too much trouble and they showed great patience and flexibility.

    Thanks again for your help. You made our special day so enjoyable.

    Rebecca and Henderson

    The Most Amazing Wedding Day

    From our first visit to Lainston back in May 2014 we knew we wanted to get married there, it felt like a very special place and your team proved that to be the case. We are so grateful for all their hard work to make our big day so fantastic. The wedding breakfast was delicious, what talented chefs you have, and the whole banqueting team worked their socks off to make everything run smoothly. We even commented to ourselves during the meal that they were so incredibly slick!! The wine and champagne was lovely too, we really enjoyed it all.

    Special thanks go to Justine Rayner, Emily Lippiatt and Sarah Phillips. All absolute professionals and a credit to Lainston. Sarah was so efficient during the build up to the big day and answered our many questions with enthusiasm (and patience!) She was a delight to work with and made the planning so much fun too. Emily worked tirelessly on the day itself and was such a pleasure to have around, from the moment we stepped out of the car and she greeted us with congratulations, smiles and champagne!

    We had the most amazing wedding day and loved every moment. We were lucky to have a beautiful crisp winter's day so enjoyed getting out into the grounds to have lots of photographs, in front of the avenue of lime trees and at the chapel ruins. It being so close to Christmas, the whole place looked so beautiful and there was a festive buzz in the air - just what we'd hoped for. It was lovely to chat to some of your other guests in the cedar bar after the wedding who had spent the whole Christmas period with you, how lovely!

    Lainston House Wedding August 2014

    What a fantastic day was had last Friday at our wedding at Lainston House. The setting is stunning and thankfully the sun shone all day. Abi Richards and the team helping to arrange our special day were fantastic and couldn't have done anything more to ensure that our day was one to remember. Our suite was breathtaking and a lovely touch to receive a complimentary bottle of bubbly in our room on our return in the evening finished off what has to be one of the best days of my life!
    Thank you to everyone at Lainston House!
