Information For Hengrave Hall

This stunning Grade 1* listed Tudor mansion is situated within an impressive 350-acre estate and is an exclusive use wedding venue, which exudes historic charm.

Hengrave Hall has its own idyllic church, St John Lateran, only a few steps away from the main house available to couples wising to get marry within or have a blessing. Many of the ground floor rooms in the main house are licensed for Civil Ceremonies (up to 140 people), offering couples a choice of locations depending if it is a small intimate wedding or a large celebration and our experienced, award winning events team will be there to guide and recommend to couples visiting what will suit their requirements.
The sun-kissed West Terrace or the enclosed courtyard can accommodate your drinks reception, with the stunning Long Gallery beautifully equipped to host your wedding breakfast accommodating up to 140 guests for a sit-down wedding breakfast (the courtyard can also be used, weather dependant). Additional rooms include the Library, Oratory, Dining Room, Retiring Room and Children’s Playroom – so whether grand or intimate, Hengrave Hall offers a flexible and exclusive venue to suit. For couples wishing to get ready at Hengrave Hall there are two wonderful preparation rooms, both available on the morning of your special day. Our Queen Elizabeth Suite is situated in a private part of the house, giving you complete privacy to prepare and our blue room comes equipped with Billiard table, flat screen TV and wet room to use in the morning.

Hengrave Hall offers an enchanting experience whether a day guest or staying overnight. With 27 bedrooms on site, (15 grand rooms within the hall itself and 12 rooms located within onsite cottages) and a nearby sister hotel on a short drive away All Saints Hotel with 41 en suite bedrooms, you will have no problem accommodating all your guests.

Top Wedding Tips

Think about reusing the flowers from the ceremony in your dining room or around the venue, find a florist who can come back or stay until after the ceremony.

We always recommend our brides to put a playlist together on the morning of the wedding to keep them calm in the Bridal Suite and to help with the nerves!

Always check the availability of the Registrar before paying any deposits for venues because with out them we have no wedding!

We had the most amazing time..
To everyone on the Hengrave Wedding team,
We wanted to say a very big thank you for all your contributions towards our magical wedding day - we had the most amazing time. The venue is obviously stunning, but all your support in bringing everything successfully together was ultimately what made the day quite so special. One of our friends called it the best wedding venues he has been to, and we certainly would not argue with him. A special thank you to Melissa and Robert who looked after us so well on the day.
We will look forward to visiting in the future,
Best Wishes
