Steeped in history and nestled in a 190 acre estate in the Hertfordshire countryside, Ashridge House is the perfect setting for your wedding whatever the season.
Our spectacular Grade I listed country house has a fascinating history spanning over 730 years.
Licensed for civil marriage and partnership ceremonies for up to 170 guests, couples can choose to exchange vows in a number of breathtaking locations. The most popular choice is on the magnificent sweeping staircase overlooking the Main Hall, but if the sun is shining, using the South Terrace as your stage is a fantastic option as you can take advantage of the beautiful views of the Italian Gardens. Each element of your special day will be hosted in a different room meaning that your guests will be continually wowed by their spectacular surroundings. Every room has its own distinct personality ranging from the palatial marble fireplaces and gold leaf adorned ceilings of the Lady Marian Alford Room to the sophisticated wooden panelling of the Wyatt Room. All of the rooms interconnect so your guests can move easily between them creating a natural free-flowing feel to your day.
We feel incredibly privileged to have had our wedding in such stunning surroundings, we really couldn't of asked for anymore, we both think our day was utterly perfect. Our guests have all commented on just how incredible the house is as a setting for a wedding and just how brilliant the service, the food and all the staff were throughout the day.
From the first moment when driving into the estate and seeing the house looming in the distance and then seeing the exquisite interior we knew Ashridge was the place we had to have. We looked at a great many other venues but none even came close in our estimations, and as if this wasn't enough the treatment we both received every time we came down before the wedding and on the day was way beyond all expectations.
Both Nigel and Krystal (both members of the Ashridge management) were incredible, We cannot speak highly enough of them both. Nigel - who is an absolute gentleman and with amazing finesse imparted his knowledge of not only the food and wine but also the venue itself to help us make the best decisions regarding each element of the day. Krystal, with a meticulous eye for detail and immense efficiency accommodated each and every one of our (numerous) requests throughout the entire planning process resulting in a seamlessly smooth day.
In short we cannot thank the Ashridge House team enough for everything, all of the hard work, the planning and also the hospitality that we have been shown.
Ashridge House now has a special place not only in our personal history and our lives but also our hearts, we will be sure to return many, many times in the future.
In short I cannot recommend Ashridge House enough as a wedding.
