Nothing was ever too much trouble...
Nothing was ever too much trouble when planning my wedding and also on the day itself. The day I got married we had lots of snow overnight meaning it was a worry that guests and suppliers wouldn't be able to arrive. Tracy one of the wedding coordinators at holdsworth house actually stayed over the night before to be sure she wouldn't get snowed in at home. Everyone was friendly and helpful and really helped my day to be special.

Frequently Asked Questions

Describe the best wedding that happened at Holdsworth House Hotel?

Every wedding at Holdsworth House is completely unique because it's about you not us. When the sun shines an outdoor wedding in the garden or courtyard are especially pretty. However if you're lucky enough to have a winter wedding with snow it's truly magical. We only ever do one wedding a day and we're expert at making your party feel like you're the only ones in the building. That said, Exclusive Use weddings are extra special because couples can really go to town with the dressing the rooms and keeping the whole estate private and magical for their family and friends. We also had a number of beautiful, small weddings in our 17th stone Gazebo with just a few friends - it's utterly romantic.

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