Description

Steeped in history and nestled within 190 acres of landscaped gardens, Ashridge House, Hertfordshire is the perfect setting for your wedding whatever the season.

The spectacular Grade I listed country house has a fascinating history spanning over 730 years. Following the dissolution of the monastery it became a royal residence for the children of King Henry VIII. Licensed for civil marriage and partnership ceremonies for up to 170 guests, couples can choose to exchange vows in a number of breath-taking locations. The most popular choice is on the magnificent sweeping staircase overlooking the Main Hall.

Each element of your special day will be hosted in a different room meaning that guests will continually be wowed by the spectacular surroundings. Every room has its own distinct personality from marble fireplaces and gold-leaf ceilings to sophisticated wooden panelling.

If you would like to share your special day with more loved ones, the venue can host up to 190 guests for a sit down formal dinner and up to 400 for a more informal evening reception.

There’s also 190 ensuite bedrooms and leisure facilities meaning that guests can make themselves well and truly at home.

Testimonials


All the guests were overwhelmed by the beauty of the house and gardens, the fantastic catering and the impeccable service received from everyone concerned throughout the whole day. A friend described the wedding as feeling "lavish yet relaxed" and we would wholeheartedly agree with that sentiment. Even though the setting was grand the event formal, there was a sense of warmth about the occasion which came from you and the other staff appearing very much in control, while at the same time remaining discretely in the background.

I would like to make sure that you receive our families’ grateful thanks and full admiration for what you and your team accomplished at my daughter Kim’s wedding. Your staff and all of the Ashridge personnel were exceptional and our guests were hugely impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the wedding. Please accept our grateful thanks and appreciation of a truly superb event, beautifully planned and executed by Ashridge and particularly by your coordinator Jean.

Ashridge House was an absolutely stunning venue. The staff are professionals of the highest standard, and could not have done more to make our day completely wonderful. As it should have been, our wedding day was by far and away perfect, with every minute detail covered, from the setting, the layout, the assistance in planning, the floral arrangements and the food. The staff were friendly, genuinely happy to be a part of the big day, and dedicated to making this the happiest day of our lives.

I have to say, and not just being biased as the father of the bride, that Ashridge was superb and would strongly recommend the venue as the number one choice for weddings in the UK. Many thanks for making our day so special.

Just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you for making our day run so smoothly. We have received so many compliments not just for the amazing venue but for the fantastic service received. The day far exceeded our expectation and we feel you went above and beyond to ensure our day run smoothly and was stress free for us.

A totally magical and superb venue with totally magnificent customer service and attention to detail.

Perfect Venue!We feel so lucky to have held our wedding reception at Ashridge in October. We absolutely fell in love with it on first viewing, but did the obligatory comparison visit to many other venues before committing. In our opinion, no where even came close. We were so fortunate to have Katie as our co ordinator. Nothing at all was too much trouble - she was always on hand to offer advice or to bounce ideas off, as well as promoting us when we should start thinking about different parts of the day. On the day itself, as the bride, I can honestly say I felt no stress at all - Katie and the team had absolutely everything under control and made sure the whole day flowed seamlessly. One thing we loved most about Ashridge, aside from the undeniably beautiful setting, is the exclusivity - knowing you are the only wedding not only that day, but that week, made it feel even more special. Katie suggested a perfect flow for the day, utilising several of the beautiful rooms, and ensuring we had a grand entrance down the magnificent staircase! Food is very important to us - my husband is a Michelin chef. This is where Ashridge continued to amaze us. During our menu tasting, the chefs took the time to speak to my husband, ensuring the menu was perfect. Absolutely every guest commented how amazing the food was. During our entire reception, through to the evening, every staff member was faultless. Katie continued to manage the day through to the evening reception, and I cannot thank her enough for how well this was done. If you are considering Ashridge as a potential wedding venue, please do not hesitate at all.

Our wedding in November 2016 at Ashridge House was absolutely perfect. From my research, Ashridge was the clear winner as there are different rooms for each part of the day. Our coordinator, Charlotte was lovely and very helpful, providing advice and ideas throughout the process. She set all of our favours and table names out on the day and liaised with our suppliers for us! The food at Ashridge really is fantastic, and this was something that all the guests commented on. The service was flawless and all staff were also really friendly, from the waiters to the receptionists, nothing was too much trouble. All staff seemed genuinely happy to be working there! Throughout the whole process there was a very flexible, professional and personal approach. I can’t recommend Ashridge House enough, it’s a hidden gem and is certainly worth the journey.
