Lightwoods House is an elegant country house located in an oasis of greenery among the bustle of south-west Birmingham.
Our emphasis is on flexibility to ensure that you enjoy the wedding day that you want. Couples and can enjoy the House and Gardens, as well as the Park, for their ceremony and photos; a drinks reception and wedding breakfast or a full wedding and evening party.
You can marry on the Edwardian Bandstand, in the leafy surrounds of Lightwoods Park, or you may prefer to hold your ceremony in the Long Room inside the House (both max 80 guests). For smaller ceremonies with up to 40 guests, the Chance Room is the ideal setting. We are an all-weather venue, with various rooms available indoors as well as a large marquee in case of rain.
After relaxing with your guests, you can enjoy a wedding breakfast in either the Long Room or the Marquee. You may want a traditional sit-down wedding breakfast or an afternoon tea - always great in the Marquee on a Summer's day! Alternatively, you may want street food, a barbecue or Asian cuisine. Meanehile, pizzas and hog roats make great evening food!
Lightwoods House provides the bar for weddings and we will discuss drinks requirements with each couple on a bespoke basis. The bar can be open all day until 11.30pm. Alternatively, might like to provide your own drinks for the reception and wedding breakfast and Lightwoods staff can serve them. Again, we can do this on a flexible basis.
We can accommodate up to 130 guests for the evening party. With our flexible approach, you can use the different rooms as you please - for the main party, a bar, a children's room or a quieter seating area. Guests can enjoy music outdoors until 9.30pm before carrying on the party inside until 11.45pm.
Lightwoods House is fully flexible venue that will give you the wedding day that you want.
