If you're looking for a traditional, countryside wedding venue in Hertfordshire, we think you'll love St Michael's Manor Hotel. Located close to the fashionable town of St. Albans, this stunning townhouse is ideally located from those travelling a little further afield, and as well as gorgeous, boutique bedrooms on site, is well within reach of surroundings for guests.

As well as being a beautiful, historic building, the hotel is also surrounded by five acres of private English gardens and its own lake which add to the exclusivity feel of the place. So even though you're close to the buzz of St Albans, you'll feel a million miles away. And, who wouldn't want their own lake for the wedding photos? Come winter or summer, it's an idyllic backdrop for the big day.

The team at St Michael's Manor Hotel have been hosting weddings for over 50 years and so as well as being able to pull off any special event without a hitch. Flexibility is our speciality, and we are more than happy to create a bespoke day for you. For your ceremony, you could tie the knot in the wood panelled Oak Lounge, a handsome, historic space decked out with gold-framed oil paintings, or by contrast, opt for the Orangery which is a gorgeous choice in the summer as the space is flooded with natural light.

Drinks receptions can take place in the hotel bar or formal lounge, or if the weather's nice bring your guests out onto the lawns or even the atmospheric summerhouse jetty, which sits out over the lake. After a tipple or two, it's time for the wedding breakfast which can be served in the smart Cedar Suite, Orangery or again, the Oak Lounge, depending on whether you're planning an intimate affair or a larger party.

Catering is provided in house and the team are more than happy to chat through the plethora of options with you to ensure everything is to your taste.

Beautiful grounds, very intimate venue

I went to a wedding here last summer (2001)it was a beautiful event, marriage in the conservatory, pics in the lovely grounds with old ccedars and a lake, then a meal in the restaurant (a very nice sit down buffet) only drawback is the venue closes at around 6 unless you are staying there. We went on to a party in a local St Albans pub.
