Best Day ever!
When we started looking at wedding venues we were looking for a barn style venue where we could have everything in one place, ceremony, reception and where our guests could stay. Lainston had everything we could have asked for and more! Not only is it a beautiful venue, the service from all the staff was outstanding! I honestly could be here all day writing about how brilliant our day was, it was our 4th wedding date in the end due to Covid but all the way through the process Lainston was so accommodating. We honestly couldn’t of asked for a better day. Our guests commented on how excellent the staff at Lainston were and loved the rooms especially the really comfy pillows! Food was excellent and we couldn’t of wished for a better day. Thank you! Can’t wait to return for our 1st wedding anniversary!

A Truly Special Venue
We are fortunate enough to visit several venues around Hampshire and Lainston House is one of the most prestigious locations we frequent with a beautiful long driveway through the gardens and of course the function rooms (we love the barn!). It really is a special place to host a wedding.

I’m not sure where to start with our thank you
I’m not sure where to start with our thank you - from our very first call all the way to saying goodbye the morning after our wedding, we were treated so well in both a professional and personal manner! To help me to put together such a stunning wedding in four days is no small thing! You helped me think of everything and nothing was too much trouble (including our extensive menu!). You thinking of putting me in a wonderful room with a stunning bath to help me relax before our big day was beyond the call of duty! The barn was lovely and being able to give us access early was so valuable to allow us to set up in a calm manner. The events staff, serving staff and house keeping were all so friendly and professional. The food was stunning and some guests even said it was the best food they had ever had! As someone who has worked in the event catering world myself, I couldn’t fault the food or service. Thank you so so much. Honestly, I am very grateful for your help and think we are so incredibly lucky to have held our wedding at Lainston. Without a doubt we will be back for our anniversary.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We have seen all sorts here at Lainston House, from Grooms arriving by Helicopter to fairground dodgems and carrousel's on the front oval!

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

We will have loads to share with you along the way, but one I regularly give to our couples, is to start table plans as soon as possible, that way it doesn't become a stressful task later on and you can plan your tables and how many centre pieces you will need early on.

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

We once had a couple whose table themes were their favourite books, they had the book on each table and made confetti made from the pages from those books, such great attention to detail.
