We cannot recommend Ashridge House enough!
After having to cancel our dream wedding in Sicily due to the global pandemic, we were devastated and didn't think we'd find any venue in the UK that we'd love as much... but then we can across Ashridge House which turned that all around. Whilst the beauty, character and history of the venue is breath-taking, it was the team at Ashridge House that truly made our decision for us. They could not have been more welcoming, kind, flexible and friendly. No ask was too much and they went over and beyond our expectations.

They helped bring our vision to life and created the most perfect wedding day. We couldn't have asked for anything more. A special thank you to Natalie Halliwell-Jennings (Events Marketing Manager & Ella Robjant-Boyd (our wedding planner) at Ashridge House for all your hard work and dedication to make our dream wedding happen! To anyone considering getting married somewhere unique and beautiful, we cannot recommend Ashridge House enough!
