Nowhere like it!
Where do I even start! We got married here in May 2022 peak heatwave, we got married in the beautiful court yard, we had the best wedding coordinator! We held our wedding breakfast in the rustic barn with floor to ceiling fairy lights! Then the party continued in the festoon light courtyard with cocktails and pizza! The courtyard gave a very French vineyard feel in the warm summer evening sun! We can’t thank the Howard court team enough!

Lovely Rustic Wedding
I attended a wedding at Howard Court in Summer 2022 and had a lovely day. The venue and decor was lovely and every detail was well thought of. The surroundings and on-site accommodation are beautiful too.

We held our wedding reception at Howard Court in March 22 - it was perfect in every way. An amazing setting and we couldn't have asked for more from Caroline, Jules and the team, who made the weekend so relaxing and helped make sure everything ran smoothly. Our guests loved it too. We'd definitely recommend.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

A late September wedding that was blessed with an Indian summer heatwave. The amazing weather enabled us to hold our very first outdoor wedding ceremony on the beautiful courtyard. The day was filled with so much love, laughter and happy tears. We loved watching our guests soak up the rays in our stunning grounds, whilst sipping on drinks provided by a rustic horsebox bar and being serenaded by a sax player. Absolute perfection in every way!
