    Fabulous and grand venue

    Ragley Hall is a spectacular venue for a wedding, which includes absolutely amazing views with the vast array of gardens surrounding it, a classic yet stunning building and in a location which is easily accessible. This made it the perfect romantic setting for our wedding and a stunning backdrop to capture amazing videos and pictures giving a feel of grandness and prestige. The Great Hall was perfect for our English wedding ceremony and the red saloon for drinks. The back gardens were stunning for our photos, not to mention the brilliant staircase and library. The great hall was then turned around in time for our drink’s reception with the grand fireplace well suited for the head table. All our guests were also impressed with the venue and enjoyed the day.

    Cathie Debar in particular was very helpful in organising the day, to make recommendations and and answering all our questions. Cathie was present on the day to ensure it all went to plan a had an eye for detail at the right moments.

    We felt in the early stages of sorting the contracts and responsiveness to key questions were a little slow to begin so this seems like an area of focus for Ragley. However, it all came together perfectly towards the end.

    Fairytale venue

    Cathie, Sean and the rest of the team were brilliant, very approachable from start to finish, and very upfront about everything including costing. They were able to organise multiple meetings and were very involved, you get a wedding co-ordinator for the day who are present on the day of the wedding which makes it run ever so smoothly. The venue itself is just absolutely breath-taking and I got so many compliments on it. We did a South Asian wedding there with about 180 people including a walkway and a stage and it was just perfect. There are so many rooms there which means your guests have a lot of space to wander around and you get a lot of space to play with. The grounds outside make for very scenic pictures and make it a perfect spot for the canapes and drinks reception. Highly recommend, if not for everything else but for the beauty of the great hall

    October Wedding

    We would like to confirm all Kate's comments on her wedding reception here at Ragley!. Cathie was a great help (and very patient!) answering all our questions, coming up with suggestions and generally organising things, and it is thanks to her and the rest of the lovely staff that the day went so perfectly. A day to remember and one we can recommend.

    A perfect venue

    I looked at many venues before visiting Ragley Hall; on a day where I was also seeing 4 other venues afterwards. As soon as I entered, I had a feeling that Ragley Hall was going to be special and for once I could not find fault with any part of the venue! The great hall was everything I had been wishing for as a place to hold our wedding breakfast, and the 'animal room' as I call it, as well as the red saloon were perfect for an indoor drinks reception, and I fell in love with the glitter ball in the vaults! After I left Ragley to see other venues I could not stop thinking about it and knew my husband-to-be would love it as much as I did. One of the main reasons we chose Ragley Hall however, were the stunning grounds. We chose to get married in early October so had our fingers crossed the weather would be good enough to hold our reception outside (although we were more than happy with the inside of the venue in case of bad weather!) Luckily the weather was perfect and our guests and photographer really enjoyed the stunning grounds. Cathie and her colleagues were excellent at organising things and were more than happy to answer numerous emails, texts and visits in the weeks leading up to the wedding. They were so accommodating that it felt there was nothing we could ask for that couldn't be done, and I really feel they went the extra mile. I couldn't think of a better place to have held our wedding, and my husband and I had the best day possible. I wouldn't have to think twice in recommending Ragley Hall as a top venue.

    A Dream Wedding Come True

    The moment we drove up to the grounds of Ragley Hall, I knew this was where I wanted to hold my wedding reception. The stunning scenery, the beautifully decorated rooms, the building itself and the glorious grounds, was just all mesmerising, and did provide an incredible romantic backdrop for our wedding reception. On the actual day, Ragley staff were there to ensure the smooth running of the day, the sun was out, everything was utter perfection. The Ragley Hall suppliers were also excellent, Good Intents marquee team, Bruce and Lucy created the most awesome marquee I’ve ever seen to hold our 350 guests. Kelly&Sati from VogueLuxury Events provided breathtaking top class decor, and Shamim of Five Rivers ran everything like clockwork, not to mention serving exquisite food. I have to also mention out photographer and videographer team, Sadha videos, and DJ RajeevB from Kudos, along with Ivory Keys, and SweetAlchemyWedding Cakes, who all together put the finishing touches to our very special day. It really was our dream wedding come true.

    Stunning venue for an Indian wedding

    I had my civil and Indian wedding at Ragley Hall and I have to say, it was the best day of my life. The team made sure my day went as smoothly as possible, they all looked after me, my now husband, and our 200 or so guests really well.

    Everything was so perfect, and I know that we wouldn't have been able to it without the team. Thanks to the Ragley team for all your care and patience - all of our guests commented on how fabulous the Ragley staff were. Everything went so smoothly, and I really can't put into words how much we both appreciate it.

    I know that it is a huge task organising an event on such a large scale - so hats off to everyone involved for making sure everything was just right. The sun even came out which was such a bonus, so everyone really got to enjoy the grand setting of Ragley Hall. Everyone was in awe of the setting.

    It was the perfect location for a perfect day, and I can't thank the fabulous team at Ragley enough for making it amazing.
