Wow!!!! What an amazing day. It was incredible
Wow!!!! What an amazing day for us all. It was an incredible. The service provided by yourself was impeccable. The day ran so smoothly due to the rigour and high expectations that the staff at Ashridge House adhere to. The continual comments from all our guests have a common thread saying the quality of the food was delicious, the service from the staff was professional and the endless attention to detail on everything was always picked up. Ashridge House has provided the bride and groom and all their guests with an imprint of complete splendour that will never be forgotten. It really was truly memorable We are forever indebted to all your hard work in making this dream come true for our daughter and our son in law

Just the most incredible wedding venue
Ashridge House is our favourite wedding venue to shoot. It is absolutely stunning and offers incredible backdrops and spaces ALL year round - with no need to worry about the weather... The events team are also very friendly, efficient and helpful and all the weddings run smoothly and on time. It is also perfectly suited to aerial drone work as it is a stunning building set in the most incredible gardens and grounds.

To anyone considering getting married somewhere unique and beautiful, 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!
