About The Elvetham

Hartley Wintney, Hampshire
Hampshire, RG27 8AS

The Elvetham in Hampshire is a stunning, family-owned estate, set in 35 acres of stunning grounds. Choose your perfect space from the multiple dining and reception rooms, or hold your ceremony in the licenced outdoor Summerhouse. From intimate ceremonies to extravagant receptions, every wedding is handled by a Wedding Specialist and run by a highly praised and experienced team.

A long driveway provides a memorable entrance to the grounds, complete with abundant wildlife! A carriage porch provides a special touch at reception, and a red carpet is laid for the bride and groom on their wedding day. Multiple spaces in and around The Elvetham’s grand house mean that it suits various themes, from a vintage affair in the historic Library or panelled Oak Room, to the bright and light-filled Conservatory overlooking the main gardens.

Very convenient transport links make The Elvetham popular both locally and nationally. Located just fifteen minutes from both the M3 (J4a & J5) and M4 (J11), 40 miles from London, and under 1 hour’s drive from Heathrow airport mean guests can easily reach the magnificent venue. Wedding Specialists guide you through every detail of planning your big day, and an exclusive-use option allows you to hire the full house and grounds. Larger receptions of up to 320 people are catered to from late November to late January in the Winter Conservatory.

Thanks very much. We had the best day ever. We could not fault any detail. Thanks to everyone that helped set up, it was exactly to the detail we wanted. The staff were fantastic and you truly made our day the magical and was better than we could have imagined. We had so many compliments from the guests on the food and venue.

Beaming from ear to ear!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Dall, on 09 Aug 2016Date of Wedding - 02 Aug 2016

We honestly don't know how to thank you all enough for making our day so perfect. Things are only starting to sink in a little now as we are still beaming from ear to ear. The comments from our friends and family were just amazing. They loved it as much as us. Thank you to all the staff again for giving us one of the best memories together. And thank you to you and Andrew for making everything so smooth and stress free for us. We are enjoying married life and cloud 9 is a perfect place. With love and thanks, Mr & Mrs Dall

A perfect day!
Venue Service

By Kim, on 09 Aug 2016Date of Wedding - 01 Aug 2016

Please pass on my heartfelt thanks to all of your staff, from housekeeping, kitchen, admin, gardeners, absolutely everyone for making Jack and Emma's wedding day on 1st August just perfect! You are a wonderful team, we couldn't have chosen a more beautiful venue which feels homely and is so well organised. The only thing that let us down was the weather! I work in a hospital dealing with the general public and I know only too well that people are quick to complain but rarely praise, so, once again, thank you for a fantastic job. Regards Kim (Mother of The Bride)

A beautiful venue!
Venue Service

By Charlotte L, on 15 Jul 2016Date of Wedding - 09 Jul 2016

We chose The Elvetham as it was a beautiful venue that had a good reputation for delivering amazing weddings, and we were not disappointed! The service we received on the day was beyond what we could have hoped for. We were kept informed at all times by the manager and the staff were courteous and very attentive to our needs. The whole day ran so smoothly and guests commented on what a beautiful venue it was. We would highly recommend The Elvetham if you are looking for a beautiful and reliable venue to hold your wedding.

Everything was seamless...
Venue Service

By Harriet and Daniel, on 09 Aug 2016Date of Wedding - 17 Apr 2016

Hello Dan and I wanted to say a massive 'Thank You' (and to the rest of the team) for making our Wedding Day, a day that we will both remember always. From the moment we came to The Elvetham for our first visit in June 2014, to the day after our wedding in April 2016 when we left as Mr & Mrs, we couldn't fault the service or staff that helped us in making our day truly memorable. Everything was seamless and nothing was too much trouble, which really meant we could enjoy the build up and the day itself. We have already recommended The Elvetham to our network of family, friends and colleagues, as it is an incredible venue and one to definitely hold a wedding at!! Thank you once again :) We would definitely love to do it all over again. Kind regards, Harriet and Daniel

Superb Day we wish we could do it all again!
Venue Service

By Mark & Claire, on 30 May 2014

What can we say but WOW! The attentiveness of the staff and patience with our arrangements were fantastic. Andrew and the day team were so good at keeping the Bride on track and it felt like he was part of the family at the end... what a superstar! Couple of hiccups with no disco lights in the evening and no wedding flowers out on the piano which dropped a heart, other than that Perfection. Our Guests are still raving about the grounds and setting. Cannot wait for the pictures in June! We'll be back next year for our anniversary stay over. Superb wedding day and still smiling as I write this :-)))

Dear Manoli, Andrew and all the Elvetham Team, We just wanted to say a HUGE HUGE HUGE THANK YOU for making our wedding day (May 28th) SO amazing. It truly was the most magical, memorable and best day of our lives. Your attention to detail and accommodation of our many requests (including the weird and wonderful falconry display!), meant the day ran exceptionally smoothly and was everything we had dreamt of and more. We couldn't have asked for a better venue or more attentive and friendly staff. We hope there wasn't too much to clean up the next day!

A truly amazing day!
Venue Service

By Ellen and Steve, on 07 Apr 2011

Hi Manoli, Just a quick note to say a very big thank you to you and your team for everything. Everything ran so smoothly and all the staff were very attentive and helpful and we had a truly amazing day. Please pass our thanks on, we cannot recommend you highly enough!

This day will live in our memories
Venue Service

By Richard and Yvonne, on 15 Mar 2011

I take this opportunity to thank Manoli and all the staff at the Elvetham for making our day so special. In particular please pass on our thanks to Andrew, Ali and Alex. They were so pleasant and helpful. Talking about the day afterwards, none of us could think of a single thing that did not go as planned or that we would have changed. The wedding breakfast was suberbly organised and food absolutely gorgeous. All our guests were very complimentary about the meal and the day in general. We were very pleased with all the little touches, such as glasses of water to drink for the bridal party just before the ceremony.This turns a good day into a great day. You even managed to arrange good weather for us! The Elvetham is such a beautiful building and everyone really enjoyed the ambience of the place. Of course such an ambience also requires hard work from all the staff to maintain. Once again please pass on our thanks to all. this day will live long in our memories.
