Shendish Manor Hotel is a stunning historic wedding venue, set just 20 minutes from central London by train. Nestled within 160 acres of beautiful and idyllic Hertfordshire countryside, it’s hard to believe that the breathtaking venue is so close to the city.
Whether your wedding is a small occasion for 20 to a large gathering for 400, Shendish Manor can cater for you and their only aim is to create your perfect day.
The Manor building dates back to 1853 and exudes charm and timeless elegance. The Manor House is an ideal space to host your wedding for up to 94 guests during the day, and up to 160 in the evening. The Manor has its own entrance, a spacious and refined lounge area and private bar. With many original features including high ornate ceilings, oak paneling, Jacobean fireplace and a sweeping staircase - there are a number of unique photo opportunities to take advantage of.
The Manor House opens out onto the grounds of the estate and the Dutch gardens, perfect for enjoying your drinks reception, and another opportunity to capture some great photos.
The Manor Gardens also provide an option for an outside civil ceremony. We are licensed for up to 120 people for an outside ceremony, under the stone gazebo.
The Contemporary addition to the Hotel has added the spacious Apsley Suite to seat a maximum of 320 guests banquet style, or 400 guests theatre style for a ceremony. The suite is complete with kitchen space, allowing us to hire the Apsley Suite on a dry-hire basis.
The Apsley Suite opens up onto its own private walled Gardens, with a water feature. The suite boasts an abundance of air conditioned space, elegant décor and sparkling chandeliers to create a perfect backdrop for your celebrations.
The Apsley Suite is the perfect choice for the larger celebration. We have long standing relationships with caterers within the Asian, Jewish and Greek communities, offering something for everyone.
With 70 fabulous bedrooms for you and your guests, we offer it all on-site to make that perfect, all-in-one package you are looking for. Letting us take care of every detail means the process will be hassle-free and you can enjoy the experience of planning your dream day.
With our close proximity to London, Luton Airport, the M25 and M1 it is a popular choice when getting family and friends together from all over the UK and beyond.

Maria & Tim's Tiny Covid Wedding
We had a wonderful day, despite the Covid restrictions and limitations. The staff worked above and beyond our expectations, nothing was too much to ask for.Sent on 13/09/2020
Together we spent a lot of time planning, revising plans and re-planning, right up to the last minute. We constantly reviewed the government regulations to ensure everything was compliant and that both staff and our guests were safe. It was difficult all round navigating through the ever-changing circumstances, but together we worked to achieve a fantastic Wedding Day to remember. My thanks to all the Shendish staff.

COVID Fairytale Indian Wedding
Due to the lockdown we had to reschedule both our Civil and Hindu Wedding ceremonies and Bryher and the team at Shendish Manor made this process stress free and were very flexible. We managed to have our Civil Ceremony in August which was truly magical and will be having the Hindu wedding in a few weeks time and I have no worries as I know Bryher and the team will make sure that I have the best day possible.Sent on 04/10/2020
