Amazing wedding venue
If you are looking for the most amazing place to get married, look no further! With a fantastic garden and indoor space, Lanwades Hall offers options for all seasons. Alex & Elvis were very flexible and understanding (we had to change our wedding date due to the pandemic), and did so much more to make our stay run smoothly! The bridal suite is out of this world, I felt like a princess, moreover all the accommodation available made it possible for our families to stay with us. It could not have been better. Highly recommend xxxx

Such a beautiful day!
Lanwades Hall is such a beautiful wedding venue and we cannot rate it more highly! We were searching for a venue which had a beautiful outside space for a ceremony and was naturally beautiful in it's features (we didn't want to do too much DIY!) and Lanwades was just the venue we were looking for! It strikes a great balance of being intimate but also offers plenty of space for your day and the grounds a just gorgeous! Alex and Elvis are very welcoming and supportive and they are superb venue hosts. They have a nack to being professional but also very warm and make it easy for you to leave your day in their hands and everything runs seamlessly. They made some excellent supplier suggestions when we asked for help but were not pushy at all about suppliers we could/ could not use. We booked the accommodation for the night before and the day of the wedding. It was really special to have our family and friends stay with us for the weekend and the accommodation itself is of a very high standard. We really enjoyed being there for the whole weekend and not needing to rush on the day of our wedding as all our bridal and groomsmen party were on site. We had our ceremony in the sunken garden surrounded by lavender with butterflies and bumblebees flying around us. We got married in the rain and it could not have been more perfect for us - a story to tell for years to come and we are very grateful to Lanwades and the registrars for agreeing to go ahead with an outdoor ceremony! Thanks so much Alex and Elvis! Paula & Chris x

From start to finish, outstanding!
Elvis & Alex were just amazing from the get go, we fell in love with the place at first sight and the whole experience was made even better by them. All obstacles were never too much for them to sort out and extremely pleasant every step of the way. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

The most perfect venue
We booked with Lanwades Hall back in 2017 and since then it feels like Alex and Elvis have become our friends. During the pandemic which included 3 postponements, they could not have been more accommodating. We finally got married on Saturday 7th August and the day could not have been more perfect. All the help and support from all the staff at Lanwades could not be faulted. It is such a beautiful and unique venue with character and class. We could not recommend Lanwades Hall enough! Thank you so much! Mr & Mrs Canham

Stunning and definitely worth the wait
We finally had our day, a year and 3 rebookings later following COVID. Throughout the pandemic Alex and Elvis were amazing and really ensured we were fine and supported throughout the rebookings. Lanwades were incredibly organised, supportive and flexible with how we envisaged our day. The venue is incredibly beautiful and we made the most of the outside space for our day. The bridal suite is simply beautiful and was perfect for getting ready on the day. The venue was also a hit with the guests, with positive feedback throughout the day!

Lanwades Hall was the perfect venue
Lanwades Hall was the perfect wedding venue and I cannot recomend it highly enough! Many of the venues we visited were very corporate and pushy, pressuring us to reserve a date. From our first visit Lanwades Hall stood out as being different. Elvis and Alex are so kind and really helped us to visualise how the hall could be used for our day but without any pressure and were happy to arrange a second visit to make sure we felt confident with our choice. Communication was excellent throughout, with Elvis always quick to respond to queries and so accommodating with all our requests. We booked the accommodation for the night before and the day of the wedding. It was really special to have our family and friends stay with us for the weekend and the accommodation itself is of a very high standard. We had our ceremony in the sunken garden surrounded by lavender with butterflies and bumblebees flying around us. It could not have been more perfect! Elvis ran the day like clockwork meaning there was no stress on us at all as we knew everything was being taken care of. The hall itself is so beautiful and we feel really lucky to have been able to get married there. Thank you so much to Elvis, Alex and the team.

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

It can seem daunting at the start with so many choices to make. Just make one decision at a time and it will all fall into place. If you are stuck or unsure you can always ask us for advice.

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

Some hand made paper flowers making full bouquets and mantelpiece displays were truly impressive. Personalised luggage tags were an excellent favour, as were mini potted plants.
