With the grand entrance all the way down the wooden staircase, often adorned with stunning floral arrangements and a picturesque bay window. It is the ideal location for you to share your nuptials with your guests.

It is the responsibility of the couple to contact the clergy and registrar to arrange the ceremony. For more information regarding ceremonies and legal requirements please speak to a member of our events team or visit Clergy details.

Raise a glass

With endless outside space our Wedding Venue Hengrave Hall offers something for everyone whatever the time of year. In the cooler, winter months, guests can be welcomed in to the warmth of the main house into one of our many reception rooms, with guests greeted with a seasonal mulled wine – the smell drifting through the Hall.

If the weather allows, the grandeur of the inner courtyard, offers an intimate space. Very popular with pre-ceremony drinks reception or a cocktail hour after the wedding breakfast before evening festivities kick off!

Our most popular space, our sun-kissed West Terrace, with immaculately mowed lawns. Is surrounded by the sweet smell of David Austin Roses and an abundance of Lavender, complete with a feature water fountain. The photo opportunities here for you and your guests are endless and many opt for their drinks reception to be held here. A selection of lawn games, are included and are a great way to entertain the variance of guests, whilst they mingle for drinks and canapés. This allows you both to sneak off for some photos, knowing your guests are being looked after and entertained.
