Steeped in history, this beautiful house and river views provides the perfect romantic setting. The Great House is in one of the most idyllic wedding venues that Berkshire has to offer. A real ‘hidden' gem tucked away in stunning Sonning on the river
The hotel completed a stunning £7M refurbishment in December 2016 with the launch of the new Great House Lodge, licensed for civil ceremonies and providing a stylish space to say 'I do'. If you're planning a church wedding, we can recommend from the many charming places in the surrounding countryside. The Hotel is just a few steps from our riverside entrance, so your celebrations can extend out onto the lawn next to the banks of the river.
The Dining Room at The Great House Lodge is naturally lit and surrounded by its own terrace overlooking the river. The Great House Lodge can host a ceremony for 115 and an evening reception for up to 200 people. If you are planning on having pre-wedding meals or drinks, the private dining room in The Great House Lodge can host from 10 to 150 guests - perfect for “night before” family gatherings or group breakfasts.

The most amazing day
We had the MOST AMAZING DAY and I just wanted to share the below with you.Sent on 30/09/2019
Right from the first phone call I made to you, through to after the wedding, you were always super friendly, super efficient and passionate about everything detail we discussed.
Nothing was ever too much trouble.
Every supplier I spoke to, spoke so highly about Corrina and I couldn't agree more with them. She is an asset to The Great House and we couldn't have wished for anyone else to help plan our wedding day. You made the whole experience enjoyable and as stress-free as it can be.
The day itself was truly magical, which we also thank Kate and the team for too.
A special thanks to Kate for ensuring our special day run like clockwork and for bringing a fun and a relaxed feel to the lead up and on the day. Exactly what we needed.
THANK YOU once again from both of us.

Magical day despite covid derailment
We couldn’t be more thankful and appreciative of the service and event we held at The Great House, Sonning, on 12 July 2020. We were due to tie the knot in May 2020 but the pandemic prevented us doing so. We had about 2 weeks to get up and running for the 12 July but with the support of the events team and our families it was an event to remember. Superb staff, food and setting. Would highly recommend. We had just 10 for both the ceremony and meal. There is a beautiful small space for the ceremony. Thank you to the Great House and Team!Sent on 14/07/2020

I just want to say a massive thank you to you and the team for making mine and Rays day on Friday such a wonderful experience. Everyone had nothing but good things to say and enjoyed every moment and a lot of that is to do with the help and support we had from the team. Izzy was brilliant, I am so pleased we chose The Great House to help host our special day. We will be back!!Sent on 07/10/2019
