Harlaxton Manor Full Description
Few wedding venues in the world can match the breath-taking approach to Harlaxton – a straight, mile-long drive across an ornate lakeside bridge, under a gatehouse to the towering, fairytale façade that is Harlaxton Manor. It floats like a vision at the end of its avenue, set amongst 300 acres of formal gardens and mature woodland. This iconic Manor House offers unparalleled views over the Vale of Belvoir in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Charmingly English, the Manor is the perfect venue for a truly romantic wedding. We can cater for a wide range of weddings – from an intimate civil ceremony and reception for 30 guests to a large evening celebration for 350 in our magnificent State Rooms. The staterooms will be set up the day before your big day, making sure you're relaxed to enjoy your wedding day. We offer the very highest levels of professional service and, because we only operate on an exclusive-use basis, you will feel very much at home in these beautiful surroundings. We have built our excellent reputation through a flexible, responsive and enthusiastic approach to weddings over the past 35 years and our guests always comment on how friendly they find our staff. As part of your wedding, each couple is invited to a midweek wedding taster event with other couples to discuss menus and try sample menus. We will also arrange a midweek final wedding meeting for each couple, with one of our wedding coordinators to make sure your day is organised perfectly. We currently have availability for 2024 and 2025, we do have limited dates for 2023 please speak to our events team on dates.

Unique and Magical Setting
As a wedding supplier I've seen a lot of wedding venues in my time and I wanted something extra special and unique! Just driving up to Harlaxton Manor makes your jaw drop. The setting and atmosphere was just perfect and all our guests said they were blown away. Abbie was really friendly and attentive and had already thought of everything before the meeting so my tick list wasn't needed! The food was delicious and they were really good at making sure we got all of our canapes. We had the most magical experience and wouldn't change a thing!

Thank you for the wedding of our dreams
We cannot thank the Harlaxton team enough. Not only is Harlaxton the best wedding venue I have ever seen, which many of our guests also told us on our wedding day, the Harlaxton team are absolutely brilliant! From viewing the venue all the way through to the day of our wedding, they thought of everything and did everything that they could to make it the best day ever for us and they definitely succeeded. Everything went perfectly and it really was the best day of our lives. I also want to send a special thank you to Mel who has been completely amazing from start to finish!

The most magical day!
Right from the moment we drove up the drive for our wedding venue viewing we knew Harlaxton manor was the one. It absolutely takes your breath away! The rooms in Harlaxton are absolutely beautiful and the great hall where we got married is just out of this world! We had full use of the state rooms and gardens during the wedding day. All the guests were blown away with the venue and couldn’t stop complimenting it! We were able to go to Harlaxton the day before wedding to set up - Mel & Tom were there to help offer reassurance and help set everything up before the big day! The food was incredible. My husband is a chef and can be very picky about food! But it exceeded our expectations and we got so many compliments from our guests saying it is the best wedding food they’ve ever had! The service was also fantastic, the staff were attentive and friendly. The communication from the events team from start to finish was just impeccable. We couldn’t be happier with how the day went and will always have a special place in our hearts for Harlaxton manor. Thank you to the events team for making it the best day of our lives.

The best day of our lives!
Being a perfectionist I was worried in the lead up to the wedding, I wanted everything to be as I had imagined but I needn’t have worried. The team absolutely know what they are doing, they are friendly and accommodating. The day before our wedding we went to prepare the venue alongside our incredible suppliers. Abbie, Ellen and Tom were patient with us and ran through with us what would happen the following day, we had a trial run of the ceremony which included Tom supporting us to step in as a bridesmaid for the aisle entrance as one of them couldn’t make the run through, (he was great). On the wedding day itself, everything went smoothly, the team were again fantastic and attentive, yes there were some minor things that did not go as planned as expected, however this had no effect on our day and nobody else knew about it. The food was exceptional, staff were friendly and couldn’t do more for us and our guests. Our guests were completely blown away by the beauty of Harlaxton Manor, exactly as we were when we viewed/booked. I have to mention that during the evening Tom was fantastic, he went above and beyond throughout the whole night. I cannot thank you all enough for making sure that the day was how we wanted, putting up with my worries and reassuring me whenever needed. We will always be grateful for you. Don’t miss this beautiful place off of your list when looking for your wedding venue. You will not be disappointed if you have your day here and take it from a very particular bride 😂 you are absolutely in safe hands! Thank you again! X

Best day of my life
The venue speaks for itself as its the most breathtakingly beautiful venue you will ever lay eyes on! The staff can't do enough for you and we couldn't fault a single one! So so happy we choose this venue and would pick it again a million times over. It was so much more than I ever dreamt of

Amazing venue, amazing team. Perfect Day!
My wedding at Harlaxton Manor was a day I’ll never forget. Not only because of the stunning venue and gardens but also because of the team that put so much effort into making the day seamless and perfect. In particular Abbie and Tom, who were so accommodating, friendly, kind and just made me feel so comfortable and at ease. I was so nervous on the morning but Abbie made me feel so nice, even giving me a little pep talk before my walk down the aisle which was so needed and helpful. I had so many guests comment on how lovely the staff were, including a friend who was breastfeeding and was asked multiple times if she was ok, the baby was warm enough and whether she needed anything. Another thing that stood out to everyone was the catering. The food was AMAZING. The portion sizes were so generous and not to mention just so delicious. It’s 2 weeks today since the wedding and I’m still getting comments on how lovely the food was. We had canopes which all went and we thought we may have over ordered, so that was lovely. Every bride wants her day to run smoothly, and when we faced a hiccup of a missing table number, Abbie very kindly took an existing one and created a replacement on the morning of the wedding. She was just so lovely and did everything she could to help. I can’t speak more highly of Abbie. Also a mention for Tom, who is an absolute credit to Harlaxton Manor. Cannot fault them in any way. The catering staff were also lovely. I was a bit dissapointed with one thing though, and that was a few overheard comments from what I believe was the manager of the catering staff. She was quite rude to her staff and very regimented, a bit too much and I heard a comment that didn’t sit very easily with me. I didn’t address that on the day but I regret that and I felt I should have as it was clear the young girl was quite upset, and quite rightly so. I do believe the catering staff are outsourced but I’ll pass my feedback onto Harlaxton regarding this. I feel bad writing anything negative because it was such a great day but I do think it was a bit unnecessary and I felt quite bad about it :( The evening and transition ran so smoothly and it was clear that the professionalism of the team is to such a high standard. Honestly the day was everything and more, and I recommend this venue to anyone that is considering having their wedding at Harlaxton Manor. The staff cannot be more helpful (as mentioned before particularly Abbey and Tom) , they made me so comfortable and I couldn’t have asked for anything else from them. Truly and unforgettable day!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

It's your day! Always take the time to focus on yourself and your family during the day. It can be hard to remember to take a step back and soak it all in, but it's these calm moments spent focusing on yourselves and the magic and happiness of the day that you remember the most.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We love personal touches! They make a wedding special as they celebrate the love that the couple has not only for each other, but for their friends and family as well.
