Alex and Elvis are simply incredible
The most beautiful venue! We were so lucky to stumble across this hidden gem when we were looking for a venue. The venue is grand and beautiful but had an intimate feeling. We celebrated our wedding here in May and it was the most perfect day. Alex and Elvis are simply incredible, the attention to detail was amazing! Nothing was ever to much trouble during the planning phase even my countless emails. I can’t recommend Lanwades Hall enough. Thank you for the most magical day!

Thank you both for everything!
We would very much like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation for the wonderful reception and hospitality we received at Lanwades Hall for L & L's wedding. You have such a lovely home and you made their day so special and everyone's so memorable. Our rooms were perfect and we would loved to have stayed longer to fully appreciate all you provided and to enjoy your beautiful gardens. I rose early on Sunday morning to wander through and take many photos of your open doorway arches- truly peaceful and beautiful. Thank you both for everything!

a lot of llove and care goes into running Lanwades
Cannot thank Alex and Elvis enough for making our big day so special. From the first meeting they made everything so easy, always quick to respond to queries and just lovely people to work with. You can clearly see from how beautifully maintained the hall and gardens are that a lot of love and care goes into running Lanwades. We did a multi-day hire (highly recommend) and had family and friends arriving over two days, and there was always someone on hand to greet guests and show them around. On the day everyone was checked on throughout the morning and even helped my grandmother (who’s in a wheelchair) into the garden. Alex and Elvis also introduced us to our caters Portfolio Events and our photographer Juan who were fabulous to work with and (again) would highly recommend. Thank you so much to everyone at Lanwades!

Truly welcoming wedding venue
We would not change anything about our wedding at Lanwades. The venue is beautiful, and there’s something about it that we found very calming from the first time we visited. It feels like a very luxurious, very well-maintained home, rather than a hotel or a museum. That’s partly because of the décor, which really tells a story, but mostly because of Alex and Elvis, who made us feel like friends borrowing their place rather than just another set of clients. The two of them are incredibly kind, and they radiate calm, like the building. They (and Tasha) were on top of everything and had extraordinary attention to detail, and they never made us feel rushed or pressured. They gave us a truly stress-free wedding day. So many of our guests told us what a good feeling that had being at Lanwades, and we agree. We absolutely love this place and recommend it as highly as we can.

Lanwades… Just Wow!
what a venue, it is characteristic inside and is surrounded by a mass of grounds. We got married in the sunken garden which was beautiful! Alex and Elvis are the kindest people and anything we needed or just advice they were there, even on the day they were present and kept the flow of the day. The grounds are kept beautifully and all of the staff at Lanwades are a credit they looked after myself and Matt really well and all of our guests also. There’s plenty of photo opportunities in and around the venue and I know our photographer new to taking photos at this venue really enjoyed exploring and taking photos here!

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.
