    Wedding of our dreams!

    We are so lucky to have had our wedding at Lanwades at the end of August 2021. We had a perfect weekend wedding and loved every second of being there. From the start, we were made to feel so comfortable and relaxed by Alex and Elvis who manage the venue. They were so friendly, welcoming and never put any pressure on us.
    We were blown away with how beautiful the venue is, especially the sunken gardens where we had our ceremony. The bridal suite is stunning, spacious and very comfortable. There are plenty of rooms including en-suite rooms and a large apartment for bridal party or family. Despite the grounds being fairly big, the wedding felt intimate.
    Throughout the process, they maintained great communication with us and were so flexible and accommodating to our ideas for the weekend including having a marquee on the grounds, an ice cream cart and a Sunday BBQ. Alex, Elvis, Catherine and the rest of the team were a great support when it came to the weekend itself and made sure everything ran smoothly.
    We cannot thank the team at Lanwades enough for all they did and hope that others can also have the wedding of their dreams there!

    Lanwades Hall, and the team there are excellent! Thank you!

    Lanwades Hall was the perfect wedding venue for us, as soon as we walked in for the first visit there was no doubt that is was the place. We also had the added bonus of finding our catering on the same visit in CDC which was perfect - We often frequent the Cambs Cuisine restaurants so this a great, low effort (on our part) paring.

    Alex and Elvis were so accommodating and helpful throughout the whole thing, and on the day, there was nothing to worry about at all.

    We also had so many compliments from the guests about how laid back and relaxed the whole day was, and that was exactly what we were going for. With plenty of space for people to get away, it was great.

    Something else we really appreciated was how Elvis and Alex were never pushy about anything, some other venues we visited before seemed to be so corporate, insert couple here type deals where as this was really exactly what we asked for, but with some extra style and guidance where required.

    Thank you so much to you all.

    The most perfect venue

    We booked with Lanwades Hall back in 2017 and since then it feels like Alex and Elvis have become our friends. During the pandemic which included 3 postponements, they could not have been more accommodating. We finally got married on Saturday 7th August and the day could not have been more perfect. All the help and support from all the staff at Lanwades could not be faulted. It is such a beautiful and unique venue with character and class. We could not recommend Lanwades Hall enough! Thank you so much!

    Lanwades Hall's reply:

    Finally the day arrived! We are so happy for you as you had waited so long to get married, and what a beautiful day it was. It was a pleasure to host you both as you're such a lovely couple. We wish you all the best for the future xxx Congratulations to you both xx

    Lanwades Hall was the perfect venue!

    Lanwades Hall was the perfect wedding venue and I cannot recomend it highly enough!

    Many of the venues we visited were very corporate and pushy, pressuring us to reserve a date. From our first visit Lanwades Hall stood out as being different. Elvis and Alex are so kind and really helped us to visualise how the hall could be used for our day but without any pressure and were happy to arrange a second visit to make sure we felt confident with our choice. Communication was excellent throughout, with Elvis always quick to respond to queries and so accommodating with all our requests.

    We booked the accommodation for the night before and the day of the wedding. It was really special to have our family and friends stay with us for the weekend and the accommodation itself is of a very high standard.

    We had our ceremony in the sunken garden surrounded by lavender with butterflies and bumblebees flying around us. It could not have been more perfect! Elvis ran the day like clockwork meaning there was no stress on us at all as we knew everything was being taken care of. The hall itself is so beautiful and we feel really lucky to have been able to get married there.

    Thank you so much to Elvis, Alex and the team.

    Lanwades Hall's reply:

    Thank you very much for such a lovely review. Its always a pleasure to hear we are doing our best from the first meeting right through to your special day. Our team work hard to ensure everything goes smoothly so that you don't have to worry and you can relax with your guests. The Sunken Garden ceremony was gorgeous, what a wonderful day. Congratulations to you both from everyone at Lanwades Hall xxxx

    Amazing venue and team

    Where do we start! Alex, Elvis and the team are amazing.
    We originally booked our wedding for 27th March 2020 everything was so smooth. Little did we know that we was heading for lockdown. Alex and Elvis was so understanding and supportive when dealing with reorganising our wedding. We rebooked for 19th March 2021, thinking a year would be more then enough time. January 2021 and it was clear we was going to have to move again, yet again Alex and Elvis was amazing. We moved it to the 2nd July, thinking restrictions should be gone.
    In the end we did have some restrictions but Alex and Elvis worked so hard the day felt so normal so smooth, everyone felt so safe and comfortable and we had an amazing day. Thank you both from the bottom of our hearts, we are soo grateful for all the work and support you gave us. Couldn't recommend this team enough

    Lanwades Hall's reply:

    Thank you very much for such kind words! We are so pleased to hear you had an amazing day, especially as you had to change the date so many times. Restrictions were in place but you still had the perfect day!! Congratulations to you both xxx

    A beautiful wedding venue

    We had the pleasure of getting married at Lanwades Hall in August 2021 and had the wedding weekend we had always hoped for. It's a naturally beautiful setting, with both the ground and the house offering stunning photos. But more than that, Alex and Elvis are truly lovely venue hosts. We have had to postpone our wedding 3 times due to the pandemic and Alex and Elvis have been so flexible every time - it's been great getting to know them both and they were super lovely in the lead up to and on the wedding day itself. The venue offers excellent accommodation and they recommended excellent suppliers to us which made our day super special.

    Lanwades Hall's reply:

    Congratulations to you both!! We were so pleased to be part of such a special day, especially after you had waited so long! And well done for not letting the rain spoil your day. You looked amazing. Best wishes for a long and happy future together xxx

    I can't thank Elvis and Alex enough for what was the best day! The day ran so smoothly and the team were so organised and made me feel at ease and comfortable that they were in control. Not only this, but the service was impeccable - I heard so many guests comment on how great it was. Those little extras really made the day as perfect as it could have been. Thank you so much! We just wish we could do it all over again!

    A Day Creating Wonderful Memories 28/06/21

    After having to change our plans several times due to the restrictions we were finally able to have our special day at the beautiful Lanwades Hall.
    A special thank you to Alex and Elvis for being so accommodating and making the day one that we will never forget.
    Our guests were so delighted with the venue and the atmosphere that they created.
    We stayed in the bridal suite for two nights. This made the morning of the wedding less stressful and set us up for our special day.
    The gardens are beautiful and we were able to find plenty of places for great photos.
    We only looked at this venue and once we had there was no need to look further.
    We would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking to find the perfect place for their wedding.
    Adrian & Pavel

    Lanwades Hall's reply:

    Dear Adrian & Pavel,
    We are delighted you and your guests had such a great time at Lanwades and that we could be part of such a special day. We look forward to seeing your photos but huge Congratulations! to you both xxx

    The wedding of our dreams!

    From the very first meeting, Elvis and Alex were so incredibly friendly and helpful. We fell in love with the beautiful venue straight away and knew it was the place for us. The building is so beautifully kept and styled, and the gardens are just stunning. We are so glad that we were able to have our ceremony in the sunken garden. The sun shone and it was perfect. The staff on the day were brilliant and the day ran smoothly. Communication was easy all the way through. We can’t thank Elvis, Alex and the rest of the staff enough - you made our day so incredibly special - thank you!

    The perfect day

    I couldn't rate this venue & their team high enough! We held our wedding there in May & they where superb. Elvis & Alex took care of everything on the day making it stress free and perfect in every way. The new accommodation was as stunning as the venue & would highly recommend to any one.

    Amazing venue

    A perfect wedding venue - we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Alex and Elvis do a great job and were very helpful and accommodating. There are 4 function rooms, which allowed a lot of flexibility on the day. We chose the library for a small ceremony, and the morning room for the disco which worked really well.

    The venue is big enough to fit a decent amount of guests, but still maintains an intimate, cosy feel, great for an autumnal/winter wedding, and a nice formal garden for summer weddings.

    They've also done an amazing job renovating the accommodation, it's very tastefully done, especially the luxurious bridal suite.

    Would highly recommend to anyone!
