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!

Our wedding at hengrave couldn’t have been more magical. It ran smoothly even when the weather was testing - the team were organised, professional and so hard working. We honestly couldn’t have done it without them, I have never worked alongside a team of such dedicated people. They are truly the best of the best. We cannot thank them enough! If you decide to get married here, you’ve already fallen in love with the hall but know that you are in good hands with everything else, the food is incredible and they respect allergies, the waiting staff are great and the place is spotless. You are really made to feel as if you’re the first and last wedding they’re having. - Mr & Mrs Wells xo

We could not recommend Hengrave Hall enough. The team are fantastic and throughout our day, we did not need to think about anything. They have everything covered and make sure that everything runs smoothly. This was also the case in the lead up to the wedding, all questions were answered quickly. This is the difference between a venue that holds weddings and a wedding venue. If you are thinking of getting married at Hengrave, you will not be disappointed. The venue, food, rooms, staff...well everything is amazing. They made our day perfect.
