From intimate weddings for close friends and family, to a grand celebration for 120 day guests, we strive to make every couples experience effortless.

Within our exclusive wedding venue, the Cottage provides a classical setting for a traditional ceremony with extensive views of the front lawns and plenty of natural daylight.

 

Our Clockhouse is an exclusive setting which is completely separate from the main house of the hotel. With a private entrance, bar, secluded courtyard garden and mews bedrooms, the suite caters for up to 120 guests during the day for the reception, and up to 200 guests for the evening celebrations. The neutral décor will allow every theme and colour scheme to look beautifully elegant, and our Executive Chef has imaginatively designed a selection of wedding menus using fresh, local and seasonal produce.

Now we’re back and the dust has settled I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for everything that you helped us with on the day. I would also like to single out and thank Steve, his experience and patience on the day was just incredible. Steve and his team made everyone feel at ease and everybody had nothing but good things to say about the entire day. So please pass my thanks onto Steve and his management as his work and organisations was amazing and really made it the best day! The food was delicious, everyone complimented the food and has such good things to say! So again, please pass my thanks onto the chefs! I’ve attached a link to our video, please feel free to use for anything if needed. Also please let me know if you wanted any photos for marketing or portfolios at all!

We just wanted to thank you and all the staff involved in our wedding day. Everyone was so amazing and made the day go so perfectly for us. We knew as it was our wedding day that it would be the best day of our lives but it honestly exceeded all our expectations! Thank you all so much for everything you did for us. So many of our guests commented on the staff, the service and the beautiful grounds. We could not have asked for a better place to get married. Rowhill grange has always been so special to us and will continue to be, so thank you. You all helped our day be one we will treasure forever.

Thank you a million times over!

The early team who met me on arrival were lovely, really made us feel special! The afternoon team - particularly Stephen – were accommodating and professional, helping me get everything running. It went smoothly, I didn’t stress about anything! Stephen is so lovely, we got on well, which made the whole evening more relaxed. The bar and serving staff were again very professional, in particular two girls who helped me to my room with my bags. One plated me up some food as I didn’t have time to eat and she put it on my bedside table which I thought was such a lovely gesture! They tried to sort out our bathroom TV and they were so patient! That brings me to the room. Wow. Talk about luxury! I really felt special to have such a beautiful room to stay in! The bathtub was my favourite and I had about four baths in there! The Reception and restaurant staff made us feel like VIPs for our stay and the level of service was outstanding! There was a young guy at reception, he was so helpful with our wedding bits, he put the flowers in water and made sure it was all safely locked away for us to take home. A great team all over! We had a couples’ treatment in the spa, I’ve got to say it was the best facial I’ve ever had and I returned home with a beautiful glow and healthy skin! The spa was so impressive! Our guests commented on the level of luxury and we would recommend it to everyone! We cannot thank you all enough for making our day one to remember, we are still so high from the memories! Thank you a million times over. We couldn’t have asked for a better day!

Best day of our lives! Beautiful wedding!

By Charlotte & Russ, on 11 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 06 Apr 2019

We had the most beautiful wedding day at Rowhill grange hotel at the beginning of April and I would recommend it to anyone. We fell in love with the beautiful grounds straight away. It was worth the wait as we planned it for a year after we booked Rowhill. There were not too many dates left at the time for early 2019. It was the perfect/dream venue. The staff at Rowhill are outstanding and are there to help with your every need from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. We didn't have to worry about anything on the day as the staff were so organised and knew what to do to make everything work perfectly. All our guests commented that it was fairy tale standards of beauty, and even the children had the best time occupying themselves by exploring the vast, grounds. The food was absolutely amazing and wouldn't have been out of place at a top restaurant. Once the evening arrived we were again in awe at the professionalism of the set up and how everything was just ready waiting for is. We couldn't fault a thing. The recommended DJ was excellent and kept people on the dance floor right to the last second. Most people will only get married once in their lives so do it properly. Rowhill Grange will offer you a day of beauty and splendour you will find hard to equal elsewhere. The bride 100% felt like a princess all day which is how it should be.

Rowhill Grange is very beautiful and special.

By Sharon McGuire, on 21 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 22 Jan 2019

We knew that our wedding venue had to be somewhere that was beautiful in the winter as our wedding date, 22 January, was non-negotiable. We looked at 120 venues online and narrowed it down to 13. We visited them all, and they were lovely, but they were just missing that little something that was us, until the day we went to Rowhill Grange. As we pulled into the grounds, we had a good feeling, and by the end of the visit we knew it was perfect. In the 20 months between booking and our wedding day, we got to know our wedding coordinator, Georgia, and our wedding team, Chris and Harry, incredibly well. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Their enthusiasm, eagerness and good humour was reassuring, and they did everything they could to accommodate us, allowing us access to the venue on numerous occasions to meet with suppliers or view the reception rooms. When we had ideas that were unusual, Chris and Harry found a way to make things happen. When we had a supplier issue, Georgia supported us and managed the situation without our involvement. When we did the menu tasting, Chris and Georgia bent over backwards to ensure that we were happy. As the groom is a chef in a 5-star hotel in central London (and 5 of our guests were chefs), it was crucial that the ingredients were a high standard and the dishes well executed. Chris took all of our suggestions and requests to the Rowhill Grange Chef and arranged additional food tastings to ensure we were happy. On our wedding day, Chris and Harry didn’t stop, they managed to be in several places at once and worked with our wedding planners to ensure that our day was special and unique to us.

We just got married at Rowhill a couple of weeks ago and I can highly recommend to anyone looking for a smooth running stress free experience. Not only is it such a beautiful venue, the staff are just amazing I cannot thank them enough they went over and above to ensure we had everything we wanted. They are so organised and we didn't have to worry about one thing on the day it all ran to time and exactly as we had imagined it to be. It was all included in the package we chose and the food was outstanding! The honeymoon suite is just beautiful as well. I am so happy we chose this venue for the most important day of our lives!

Best Day Ever!

By Daniel and Ada Crispino, on 02 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2018

We had our wedding at Rowhill Grange on Saturday 28th July. Firstly the venue itself is stunning, every single guest of ours have commented on how beautiful the venue was to have a wedding. The staff were absolutely outstanding!! They were all friendly and helpful , and we both felt that we were in good hands. They really do go above and beyond for you and felt like nothing was a problem. Both our Toastmasters (Steve and Harry) were great! For example, the groom was feeling really nervous for his speech and Harry sat with him to calm his nerves and gave him great advice which made him feel at ease and really helped! We would also like to thank Jodie. She was also amazing throughout the day. For example, when the groom arrived at the venue he had a USB stick with all the music for the wedding (guest arrival, bride walking down the aisle & first dance). When he went to go test this, they realised this didn't work! Jodie used her initiative to take the USB onto her laptop to fix the problem which she did successfully. Just before the first dance about to happen, the groom approached Jodie panicking as he didn't know where the USB stick was as it had the first dance song. Jodie again used her initiative and had already given this to the DJ. These are just a few examples of how good the staff were at Rowhill Grange. They have all been amazing on our special day and so glad that we chose Rowhill Grange to get married!

Perfect wedding day!
