I’ve dreamt of the perfect wedding celebration since I was a little girl, I never thought I would find a perfect venue because surely something like that doesn’t really exist? Boy, was I wrong! Northbrook Park is by far the most stunning wedding venue in the whole of the United Kingdom (potentially even the world). I searched far and wide for a venue that would tick all my boxes, but Northbrook Park ticked boxes that I didn’t even know I was looking for! The scenery is incredible! It doesn’t even matter about what kind of weather it is, because realistically British weather is far from ideal. The day we went to view the venue it was pouring with rain, and even then, we both fell in love with the venue a thousand times over! On our actual wedding day we were blessed to have the sun shining and it was the warmest day of October, despite raining in the run up!
The staff at Northbrook Park had clear communication in the run up to our wedding and made sure all bases had been covered. There was some confusion about the bridal room and its location, but a quick call fixed that. Staff were on hand whenever they were needed but also allowed us to get on with things which was great for the intimate do that I planned. A special thanks to Gemma, Chloe and Issy!
The venue itself does not need much done to it, as it is all so naturally stunning! In the Vine Room we simply added flowers to the top of the fireplace. In the Orangery we simply had crisp white tables with a lantern centrepiece and had floral stage. The venue speaks for itself!
I wish I could do it all over again!

We had the best day we could have imagined. The venue looked delightful and the day ran smoothly. Our guests really appreciated the close proximity of the on-site accommodation but we have to say we were a little disappointed with our cabin. It was cold and lacked decorative touches. No bottled water available which would have been hugely appreciated after partying heavily! Communication during the planning process was slightly messy and slow but at the end of the day we can't complain at all because the day was lovely and stress free.
The Picture Perfect Venue!
By Corina & Jonny Hedley, on 12 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 26 May 2017
Wow, what a day!
It sounds cliche to say that our wedding day was the best day of our lives but it actually was. It certainly helped being very lucky with the weather and with the peacocks being on sensational form but it goes way beyond that. The venue looked absolutely stunning, in fact perfect in every way, freshly painted and all the grounds looking luscious. As a very demanding bride, I thought that all my many demands could not be met but Colette, Gemma and the team really delivered. Their commitment to helping us have the most perfect day was evident throughout the planning phases and on the actual day itself. Gemma even helped the groomsmen fit their button holes, a task that had perplexed them for some time. The Northbrook team worked so collaboratively with all our suppliers from flowers to catering to AV and entertainment, and accommodated all our requests.
One issue was that the honeymoon cabin wasn't available due to water supply issues but we were offered a number of alternatives. We ended up getting our own Cottage on site which actually worked out well because we got to celebrate for a bit longer with friends and family. The day was seamless from start to finish. We could not recommend it enough as a venue. Thanks guys. X
Amazing Venue, But a Couple of Pointers
By Ben Griffiths, on 15 Feb 2017Date of Wedding - 04 Feb 2017
Northbrook Park is stunning and an amazing venue - our wedding ran extremely smoothly. I would recommend it, but with a couple of pointers.
Firstly, the venue has a sound limiter. To be fair, they don't hide this fact and it is absolutely key to inform your band and that they complete a proper sound check. But beware, even with a proper sound check the limiter will hold back the band. Our band (4 piece) did not set off the limiter, but had to play with eyes constantly on the limiter and had to slightly hold back. The music was just about loud enough, but if it was louder it would have been better. If you want a big band smashing the music out, then you won’t be able to do so - a more refined performance shouldn't be a problem.
The staff certainly know what they are doing and it is easy to organise things before the day. I would stress the importance of a good caterer that knows the venue and knows what they are doing. On the day I found that it was the caterer sorting everything out (is this how it should be?). The Northbrook staff in the ceremony room were great, but I did feel that on the morning (during the mad setup rush) the Northbrook staff could have done a little more and actively looked to help, rather than just being on hand - similar to another review below it seems they are more busy showing prospective clients around the venue. There were no problems with our day, but I feel the personal touch needs to be put back into the day from Northbrook.
All things being said - the venue is absolutely stunning and I wouldn't have changed it - it's amazing!
Sunning Venue with amazing Service! Best day ever!
By Katie Benson, on 07 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 21 Jan 2017
I had a wonderful experience with Northbrook Park.
The Venue is just breathtaking beautiful and the service we received from the Northbook Park staff was exceptional.
My wedding was held in January and due to the extreme cold weather unfortunately we were not able to stay on the Cabin due to the pipes being frozen (these things happen) but Northbrook went over and above and put us up at a lovely hotel nearby, in a beautiful suite and we were shuttled there and back by Taxi. Even through it didn't quite go as planned they made everything perfect.
The Venue itself is stunning, there are so many different little places to go and we have some just amazing shots.
I would highly recommend this Venue, could not have been more perfect.
Thank you so much for making it such a great day!

NBP is a stunning place and our wedding was brilliant, however I can't help but feel it's become a bit of a wedding factory. There were people being shown around until 1pm on our wedding day- the ceremony started at 2pm! Not exactly the exclusivity you expect when paying such a premium. The wedding after ours started early morning so there were people outside the villas at 8.30am trying the check in! NBP need to do more to set clear timings for each wedding- I believe meetings with people looking around need to finish at 10.30am, and guests and wedding parties shouldn't be allowed to arrive before then. The sound limiter in the orangery is utter rubbish- brides to be please don't bother booking a band as it'll cut the music out all night- again such a shame considering what you pay. That being said the girls are fantastic and our day went really smoothly with their help- I don't regret getting married here but I think we could have got better exclusivity for less money elsewhere.

We were lucky enough to hold our wedding at Northbrook Park a couple of weeks ago, and from initial planning to the big day the team could not have been more helpful! The day ran incredibly smoothly, and we could not have wished for a more beautiful setting. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Northbrook for your big day.
Best day ever!
By Riya and Richard, on 31 May 2016
We had a wonderful day at Northbrook Park with our guests and we were very pleased with how smoothly everything ran. Everyone commented on how beautiful the grounds (and of course peacocks) are, and they were thoroughly impressed with the quality of the ceremony rooms too.
On a personal note, it was quite tricky to find a venue able to accommodate the three events on one day, and especially allow the fire for the Hindu ceremony to take place indoors, so thanks to Northbrook Park for being so relaxed and helpful in getting our day just right.
This venue is ideal if you want the freedom to give your wedding the personal touch (your choice of caterer, drinks entertainment etc), but the security of knowing staff are on hand to help everything run on time.
A wedding planner's dream
By Sunita, on 03 Feb 2016
Being a wedding planner for the last 8 years I can tell you planning others' weddings was easier than my own but Northbrook were amazing start to finish and I fully recommend it for your fairytale wedding. Plus it's extremely good value! Perfect for your dry hire if you're having a huge boozey wedding too! Beautiful grounds and peacocks!
Best Winter Wedding
By Mandy Bray, on 12 Dec 2015
The team at Northbrook park were fantastic! Any question, at anytime was answered quickly and with great detail. They were very helpful, happy and enthusiastic as a team which meant planning felt easy at the venue.
The package was amazing for a December wedding, and having the freedom to decorate how we wanted meant we could have a beautiful setting in the Vine Room and Orangery.
The service was impeccable on the day, and we even forgot we had the team around to support.
Best Winter Wedding
By Mandy Bray, on 12 Dec 2015
The team at Northbrook Park were fantastic. Any questions, any day, any clarification, they answered quickly and with great detail which made planning a lot easier!
The team were always polite, enthusiastic and on hand to help.
The package was great for what we needed and an early December wedding looked just as pretty as a summer wedding. The heating and fire ensured no one was cold!
By Emily and Seun, on 30 Jul 2015
Absolutely fantastic venue and the staff made it even better. So helpful, from start to finish everything was perfect. They went above and beyond to be helpful in so many little ways, like meeting my car with an umbrella so I wouldn't get wet on the two steps from the car to the door! Just made our day feel like it was their number one priority. Incredibly happy I could not have asked for a better venue or team. Thanks
