Cannot recommend Newington House highly enough

Newington House was the perfect venue for our wedding. It is a beautiful and impressive setting, yet still feels relaxed and informal, something which many of our family and friends commented on.

Alex & James were very friendly and accommodating - always incredibly helpful when we needed anything but also giving us the space and flexibility to plan our day just as we wanted it (including preparing a cricket pitch in their garden for us to have a game during the drinks reception)!

We also found that there was lots of accommodation in the area for our guests and lots of lovely pubs and of course, the beautiful countryside to enjoy in the build-up to, and day after, the wedding.

There were no set suppliers which we had to use but all of those which were suggested and recommended by Alex and James were excellent. It did also help a lot that these suppliers had worked with and knew Newington House and indeed each other, to ensure the wedding day ran smoothly.

We had an amazing day with our family and friends and cannot recommend Newington House highly enough!

Absolutely Perfect

We could not recommend Newington House enough! Alex and the whole team on site were so helpful from start to finish, all of our questions were answered quickly and they also went over an above to ensure the build of our marquee went smoothly and the wedding day was perfect. It is the most stunning venue that allows you to make your wedding totally unique to you, the grounds are just beautiful! We wish we could do the wedding all over again.

A Truly Special Venue

We fell in love with Newington house the first time we came to see it. The grounds are beautiful - expansive rolling green with willow trees, chickens, a stream, looking out onto a meadow behind, with lovely flowers and walled garden. It was a truly special spring venue. But more so we felt immediately welcomed by Alex and James’ warm and friendly family (and dogs!) and loved the relaxed atmosphere. Alex, James and the groundsmen were so helpful, they allowed us to create a fully bespoke wedding and went above and beyond on the day to make all the details of our vision come true for us. The Manor House was a perfect base for the weekend. We loved every minute.

A really beautiful setting for a wedding

We absolutely loved Newington House for our wedding. We were able to put up a stunning marquee which made for the party of our dreams, truly a night we'll never forget. They were also very accommodating and allowed us to have as many flowers as we liked. We were able to get some really stunning photographs as well, the house and grounds are so stunning and the photos are just what were after (we are so pleased!).

The perfect wedding day!

Newington House is the most perfect place for your special day. The backdrop of the magnificent house and grounds helped us to create our dream wedding in the countryside. The Manor house is idyllic and such a fantastic place to stay and base yourself over the period. We couldn't have had a more special wedding at Newington House and would thoroughly recommend.

"Our wedding at Newington House was everything we could have hoped for. From the idyllic church scene through to the grand setting with the marquee on the back lawn, all of our guests had the best time with great food, wine, laughter and dancing. If you’re looking for a quintessential English Wedding – Newington is the one for you!!

Newington House is a wonderful place to get married. The house and grounds are absolutely beautiful; it feels impressive but also very homely. It was the perfect setting for a British country wedding (within easy reach of London!) Alex and James gave us the freedom to create a truly bespoke wedding. Our guests absolutely loved Newington and so did we. We’d thoroughly recommend it to other couples who want to escape the 'cookie cutter' weddings offered by more corporate venues."
