About The Haywain at Lyde Arundel

Lyde Arundel, Hereford
Herefordshire, HR4 7SN

At Lyde Arundel we understand the importance of a personal approach to our weddings. Our aim is to help you achieve your ideal wedding day - we really do go the extra mile in helping you to accomplish this. Whether it’s having dozens of meetings if you wish to help with the planning or allowing your dog to accompany you on your big day (and keeping him topped up with fresh water and a safe, quiet place to snooze), sewing you into your dress if something has gone awry to dashing to the shop for the vital baby food that’s sitting in your kitchen fridge! We are creative and complete perfectionists, so rest assured the detail really does matter to us.

Whatever the season, whether a small and intimate wedding or something on a larger scale, Lyde Arundel is a unique and magical location. Our clients can trust that we will deliver to their highest expectation. We work with an accomplished and dynamic team to arrange exceptionally wonderful weddings, we are here to help as much as you like in the planning and execution of your wedding day. We only hold one wedding a week, so not only does Lyde Arundel remain special for all our couples but this means it’s all yours for your wedding week - come and start decorating and personalising – and celebrating! – two days before your wedding.

Lyde Arundel is romantic and secluded. We have two lovely old stone converted barns that are suited for up to either 100 or 200 guests seated. There are pretty terraced gardens overlooking a lake which provide the most perfect setting for wedding photographs. Lyde Arundel is hidden away from the world but within easy reach of Hereford.

We have the flexibility to accommodate any number and ALWAYS have a wet weather option – this is England after all! Over the years we have amassed a list of contacts who are fun to work with, professional, friendly, reliable and passionate – nearly all of whom are local. So whether it’s stone baked pizzas, fireworks or a casino that you’re after we can help you find the perfect match. Alternatively, you are welcome to bring in any of your own suppliers if you wish.

Unique Civil Ceremonies

We specialise in exclusive country weddings and surely one of the most romantic places to get married in Herefordshire is overlooking our stunning lake in the Summer House. Or you can choose to have the ceremony inside one of our two beautiful barns. Whether you opt for an intimate, small wedding or a grand, large ceremony we can make Lyde Arundel the ideal wedding location for you.

We like to think of our beautiful barns as a blank canvas – do nothing and they make a stunning backdrop to your big day, or you can let your imagination run wild.

Thank you all!!

We got married at Lyde Arundel last month and it was literally a dream. Lydia, Tomas and Sarah were amazing from our first viewing right through to the day after our special day, they did so much to help us achieve the best day. They made sure everything ran smoothly and we did not have to worry about a thing on the day itself. The venue is stunning, we were lucky enough to get married out by the lake which made for some beautiful photographs. We were also able to have fireworks here in the evening. The barns looked beautiful inside and out. We have had so many compliments on the venue from our guests and would not have changed a thing. Such a special place, highly recommended!

Thank you so much xxx

Although we had planned for an outdoor wedding in the summer house, and the weather was somewhat against us, Lydia, Tomasz and the team seamlessly and stresslessly moved the event indoors (and many felt it was all the better for it!) The people at Lyde Arundel knew exactly what to do and could not have been more attentive and helpful, giving excellent, experienced advice both in the planning stages, in the run up and during the event! It all ran like clockwork moving seamlessly through the different parts of the day. Lydia a quiet and gracious major domo throughout. We are so glad we chose Lyde Arundel and cannot recommend both the venue for the location and scenery, and team highly enough.

Lyde Arundel is an amazing venue

Lydia makes it so easy from the moment you meet her to after the wedding. Her and Tom ensure you have the best day and think of every little detail. We fully recommend the venue and can't thank them enough for making sure we had the day of our dreams.

I cannot recommend or thank you enough

I cannot praise this wedding venue enough. Our daughter was married here on 28th May 2016. It was a magical setting by the lake (helped of course by fine weather) but even had we had to hold it indoors the barns were wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble for Lydia, Tom and their staff. It was so relaxed and unstuffy. No silly rules just support when we needed it.
