Our Intimate Wedding Day
We married at Hodsock earlier this month. Although there were only 15 people present, we couldn’t have imagined a more magical day. The whole team at Hodsock were incredible, however, I must give special thanks to Courtney. That lady deserved a medal for the amount of times we had to amend the guest list and general plans for the day due to ever changing restrictions. Courtney first showed us around Hodsock and we booked there and then. Friendly, warm and professional throughout. Calling us on her drive home from work at the end of the day to provide much needed reassurance, to ‘floofing’ my dress before I walked down the aisle.. Courtney was just an absolute gem from start to finish. Nothing, and I mean nothing, was too much trouble. The grounds were breathtaking and Hodsock provided such a beautiful setting for our photographs. I can’t recommend Hodsock Priory enough, the perfect wedding venue.

Truly breath-taking and the photo opportunities in the grounds are just beautiful
We got married here at the end of October with just 15 guests due to the Covid restrictions! It was an amazing day, Courtney and the rest of the team made sure our day went smoothly with no problems. They couldn’t have been more helpful on the run up to the wedding and on the day. Highly recommend Hodsock Priory as a wedding venue. Truly breathtaking and the photo opportunities in the grounds are just beautiful!

Beautiful and full of history!
I attended my sisters wedding last week, staying over for two nights. The venue is absolutely beautiful and full of history. Very spacious with gorgeous grounds and lake. We stayed in the snowdrop room which was stunning, with a delicious continental and cooked breakfast. Given the challenging circumstances we never felt unsafe, all staff were helpful and attentive and ensured that everyone was remaining covid secure. I couldn’t recommend this venue enough!

Amazing 5* wedding venue
We had our wedding at this beautiful venue last week. After postponing in April due to covid we decided to go ahead in September with reduced numbers. The staff at Hodsock made the whole experience a lot less stressful and supported us the whole way through! Everything about our day was perfect, amazing service, delicious food and beautiful weather which made the venue and gardens look even more stunning! I highly recommend Hodsock Priory to everyone.

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

After hosting hundreds of weddings, its safe to say each event brings something unique to Hodsock. From helicopter arrivals to luxury floral installations and even bowtie wearing llamas.

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

We often get asked for our advice throughout our couples wedding planning journey. Our top tip has always been the same, to remember to take a moment for yourselves. Take a step back to appreciate your countless hours of hard work and planning, embrace your new husband or wife and just soak in all the love shared by your friends and family on your special day. ⁠

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

An idea that we always love, is when our couples share and frame their most cherished family photos. This adds a lovely personal touch and truly makes the venue feel like yours.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Modern, Traditional, Spacious, Flexible, Personal

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

The most popular photo spots at our venue would have to be the ante room or panelled hall becasue of its history. A great spot in the gardens is just past the lake looking back at the house. The gardens are beautiful in all seasons, in the summer sun but especially when the snowdrops bloom in winter.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

As Hodsock Priory is only available for exclusive hire, your seclusion and privacy is guaranteed. Our most famous guest would have to be Henry VIII.

What’s your favourite canapé?

A question too difficult to answer, one of our most popular would have to be the Baby Yorkshire puddings with rare fillet of beef. Each of our couples get to experience our Head Chef's culinary expertise on our tasting events. Marc will carefully create a tasting menu which makes those all important decisions about your wedding breakfast and the best wine pairings a little more easier.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our most unique feature is our Grade I list Tudor Gatehouse. In August 1541, Henry VIII and wife #5 Katherine Howard came to visit the Gatehouse and had lunch with their host Sir Gervase Clifton. The gatehouse was believed to have been built for this purpose, that and to have a view out over Sherwood Forest which then stretched to Hodsock. Now an unforgettable welcome for you and you wedding guests as well as a beautiful backdrop for your wedding portraits.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We are most proud of our team! When looking for your dream venue, the people who are going to be part of your wedding planning journey are just as important as the venue itself. Are they welcoming and friendly? Are they willing to help answer all your questions, big and small? And are they willing to make your craziest ideas a reality? Our team are. We are renowned for our hospitality and service, and pride ourselves upon exceeding your expectations from start to finish.
