    Incredible venue and amazing staff

    We had our wedding here on 6th November 2021 after unfortunately having to postpone from 2020 due to the Covid restrictions. The venue is absolutely beautiful inside and out and makes for a stunning location for a wedding. Chelsea was our wedding coordinator from the start of our planning and was incredibly helpful from the moment we enquired about hiring the hall, throughout the rebooking with Covid and was even there on the day to make sure everything went exactly as planned. We had a few meetings with Chelsea over the years of our planning and informed her of all of the suppliers/decorators/photographers etc that we were using. Chelsea liaised with all of them which helped to ensure the day went perfectly. All of the staff at Wollaton Hall were fantastic every time we went there and especially so on the day of our wedding. Our wedding day was amazing because of the hall and everyone working there made it even better. I definitely recommend you choose Wollaton Hall for your wedding!

    Perfect Day

    We instantly knew when we starting wedding planning that Wollaton Hall was the place to choose, having spent many date days there and also the fact that its Batman’s house!! We eagerly awaited the two years prior to be able to book our wedding date the 20th September 2019 and throughout this time, Chelsea was excellent at keeping in touch and responding to any requests!
    The day itself was just perfect, it wouldn't have ran as smoothly if it wasn't for the amazing members of the team, ensuring that not only the bride and groom were well taken care of but all of our guests too.
    Our guests absolutely loved the venue, it was just perfect for the ceremony and then photographs in the grounds followed by the sparkling wine and canapés in the Camellia House.
    We get to return now for dates, feeling butterflies from the memory that was our big day!
    We want to thank Chelsea and all the team from Wollaton for everything they did, it really was the perfect day!

    The dream location for our wedding!

    Wollaton Hall was the dream location for our wedding in September 2019. I always wanted to get married in a castle, and my husband had Wollaton as his playground growing up, as he used to live in the area. The Great Hall embraces you with warm light and serene atmosphere. As I was walking down the aisle I felt truly special and lucky to be there. There are plenty of spots for photos even if you prefer indoor set-up or nature. Chelsea has done a brilliant job organizing everything and entire staff was very helpful. Thank you Wollaton Hall team!

    We will treasure this day forever

    Wollaton Hall was our first choice for many reasons; not only is it a beautiful historical house, it is full of memories for me growing up in the local area. For Joe (being Australian), it epitomises the elegance of the English countryside & was the perfect location to cater to our eclectic guest list.
    Chelsea greeted us on each tour; showing us parts of the house, the gardens & helping to explain how each part of the day will operate. We were given an option of 4 caterers who had access to the kitchens, deciding on Fiona Herbert Catering (& so pleased we did).
    The build-up to the day was a mixture of planning & verifying vendors, all so easily organised over email as Joe & I were out of the country – but we can honestly say it was so easy, we were given help & guidance along the way, tips & ideas based on past successful weddings & also the idea for a Gospel Choir, which did not disappoint. The suppliers we selected for flowers, music, catering etc all liaised directly with Chelsea & were given clear & concise information – so we weren’t inundated with loads of questions during the busiest build-up to the big day.
    Then the day arrived & we were blessed with a 30 degree day! The team members who helped during the wedding day were so lovely, under the guidance of Chelsea & her team, they ensured all of our guests were so well cared for whilst ensuring we had the best day we could.
    We cannot thank you all at Wollaton Hall enough, Chelsea you were priceless in ensuring everything ran seamlessly & did it all so gracefully. What a perfect day that we shall treasure forever.

    Every detail catered for

    Having our Wedding ceremony at Wollaton Hall made a truly special day, perfect. Chelsea and the team worked tirelessly to make sure every little detail was catered for. The coordination on the day meant we were free to enjoy to moment; and the ice-cream cart was an unexpected treat for our guests! Having our wedding at Batman’s house was the icing on the cake for James! Thank you so much, you made our day.

    Thank You

    We wanted to say HUGE thank you for making our wedding such a memorable and fantastic event! Everyone who came couldn't praise the venue, atmosphere and food highly enough. We were thrilled with how everything went - the coeliac / gluten free guests especially said how reassured they felt and how beautiful their food was. The canapés were so thoughtfully presented and the drinks reception went down a treat. Our only wish was that we could have done it all over again because time went too fast!
    A special thank you Chelsea to you for your warmth, investment of time in our Wedding and for always being so calm and reassuring. It made the planning completely stress free and pleasurable and only served to deepen the connection already felt with Wollaton Hall. Thank you!

    Excellent

    Firstly I would like to thank you so much for making our day perfect. We have received so many compliments about Wollaton with everyone saying it had the elegance you expect from a wedding venue as well as the wow factor. Myself and Daniel cannot begin to tell you how excellent you personally were to work with and on the day you definitely shined with such professionalism and assistance with the small details. We have and will recommend you and the venue to anyone we know that is planning their wedding in future.

    Ideal

    We decided to get married at Wollaton Hall because, growing up locally, it is so iconic from our childhoods and already held many happy memories.
    The Prospect Room is such a beautiful, light, spacious venue, along with amazing 360-degree views of the grounds, that we felt it would not only be a special location for us, but also for our guests to enjoy too.
    Following the ceremony, Camellia House, with its manicured gardens, was the ideal space to host our reception drinks and canapés, and to capture treasured photos with our family and friends.
    Finally, how cool is it to get married at Batman's house?!

    Wonderful Venue

    For me the main driver of a wedding at Wollaton Hall was the grandeur of the building mixed with the fun and educational aspects of the museum. Having recently relocated back to Nottingham, we wanted our friends to feel the WOW factor of the city. For my husband, the venue was far more personal as he had memories as a child of learning to ride his bike in the park with family. For these reasons, when we found the hall as a wedding option, we jumped at the chance to book the venue (and even rearranged our wedding date to meet availability).
    Our wedding day itself was very casual and fun. The venue fitted perfectly with our November nature / Robin Hood theme. We made full use of all elements of the hall including pre ceremony drinks reception in the stunning Camellia House, Ceremony in the Salon, tours of the museum, evening party (with full band) in the grand hall and photos on both the roof and in the amazing Prospect room - this was a real highlight for us and has allowed us some magnificent roof shots to remember our wedding.
    Throughout the whole experience, the staff at Wollaton Hall were amazing, and really went above and beyond to make our day. They were on hand before, during, and after the wedding to answer any of our silly questions and queries.
    Overall the venue was wonderful, and a fantastic combination of formal and quirky, with stunning opportunities for photos and life long memories to be made.
