Full of English charm!
By Hayley & Ben Webdell, on 19 Mar 2015
Ben and I are so pleased that we chose Lanwades hall as our wedding venue for both our ceremony and reception. So many of our guests have commented on how beautiful the venue was. Sophia and Anthony were excellent! They gave us the freedom to totally take over and add our own touches, yet were there to advise and support along the way.
I would recommend that the bride takes full advantage of this stunning venue and spends the morning getting ready in the old library. Us ladies made this our own little boudoir which we used throughout the day. If you’re looking for a venue with English charm, stunning surroundings and the complete freedom to put you’re own stamp on, then Lanwades Hall is it!
Flexible with beautiful grounds and gardens
By Katie & Stephen Whittle, on 19 Mar 2015
We are so pleased we chose Lanwades Hall as our wedding venue. The building and the grounds are beautiful and the advice and support we received from Sophia was invaluable. We loved having the freedom to choose our own caterers, décor and entertainment in such beautiful surroundings and knowing that the hire fee goes to the Animal Health Trust was an added bonus. We were even able to have a vintage ice cream van in the evening, which was a real hit with our guests.
We had looked at other venues and always felt that the ceremony rooms were an afterthought, but when we walked into the Morning Room, we knew instantly that it was special enough for the most important part of our day. Getting ready in the Old Library was an amazing start to the day and provided a stunning background for our bridal preparation photos. Sophia’s calm approach was just what we needed when organising our wedding.
In the run up to our wedding, Sophia offered us advice and suggestions about suppliers, layout and timings and took a lot of stress out of the planning process. On the day, Sophia made sure that everything ran smoothly and ensured that we could enjoy our day without any added pressure.
So many of our guests have commented on how well our wedding suited us as a couple and we truly believe that is because of the flexibility that Lanwades Hall offers. Thank you for making our day so memorable!
A hidden gem
By Alice & Lee Draper, on 19 Mar 2015
"Lanwades Hall is absolutely stunning and provided a perfect venue for us and our guests to enjoy our wedding day. Everyone who we have spoken to has commented on how perfect Lanwades Hall was, and that it is a "hidden gem" amongst some of the more well known wedding venues.
We knew as soon as we arrived for our first visit that Lanwades was the place we wanted to get married; the beautiful grounds, gorgeous, spacious and well maintained building, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff were just what we were looking for. Also the knowledge that hiring Lanwades Hall was helping The Animal Health Trust charity meant a great deal to us as animal lovers.
We were particularly grateful that we had sole use of Lanwades Hall for the day before and the day after our wedding as this allowed us to dress the building and full prepare everything in advance without having to rush around.
On the big day we loved being able to stay in the one location for everything from the getting ready, the ceremony, the reception right through to the end of the night; this made it a more relaxed occasion for everyone. The space in the different rooms meant that people could find a place that suited them to enjoy the reception whether they were standing chatting at the bar in the Morning Room, dancing in the Council Room or sitting on a cosy sofa in the Common Room.
We would 100% recommend Lanwades Hall to anyone looking for a unique, intimate, relaxed and beautiful wedding venue.
We crated a unique day that was special to us
By Elle & Tom Berrett, on 23 Jan 2014
"Wow – where do we start!
From the minute we first looked around the venue we knew it was the one. We were swept away with the beauty of the place, inside and out and being big animal lovers, Lanwades Hall ticked every single box for us.
The staff were fantastic from day one offering us advice and support in the lead up to our Big Day. We truly could not have done it without them.
The great thing about Lanwades Hall is that you are free to select your own suppliers, from caterers to DJs, to various entertainment and drink! We were able to create a day that was unique and special to us with as many personal touches as we possibly could!
We got married in the Council Room, the largest ceremony room that Lanwades Hall has to offer. With its impressive oak-panelled walls and beautiful decor, we had the ceremony of our dreams.
We had our champagne reception in the magical sunken garden with the stunning backdrop of the Lanwades Hall and then a Wedding Breakfast in a marquee in the grounds. People were able to wonder leisurely around the grounds there was even field full of ponies next to the Hall where we had some of our photographs taken!
The evening celebrations took everybody back into the Hall where there was plenty of dancing, drinking, more eating and much picture-taking!
We would like to take this opportunity to once again thank the exceptional staff at Lanwades Hall, and especially Sophia and Anthony, for helping us create the wedding of our dreams. We never thought we would find somewhere quite so special and knowing that all the proceeds were going towards a very worthy cause, The Animal Health Trust, well that really was the icing on the cake!"
We fell in love with Lanwades straight away!
By Diane & David Owen, on 23 Jan 2014
“As soon as we visited Lanwades Hall we fell in love with it and knew it would be a perfect place for our wedding. And we weren’t disappointed! The staff supported us all the way with recommendations, advice and help – and were always available by email or phone, or to arrange a visit.
On our wedding day, they worked tirelessly to make sure everything was running smoothly, but at the same time blending in and being discreet. So many of our guests commented on what a fabulous venue it was – the Morning Room looked beautiful for our ceremony, and the terrace and garden were just stunning for eating and mingling outside, all day and well into the evening – thanks to wonderful floodlights and a heat-wave! And the children were happily occupied all day running about and exploring the garden! We couldn’t have found a more perfect place, and with the added benefit that profits all go to the Animal Health Trust, it’s just a shame we can’t do it all over again!”
