The wedding venue of my dreams
Lanwades Hall was the most beautiful venue we could have ever dreamt of for our winter wedding. The venue balances intimacy with grandeur perfectly. Alex and Elvis looked after us and our families from the moment we had a virtual (covid!!) tour in 2020 to the moment we said goodbye the morning after our gorgeous wedding (December, 2022). The grounds at Lanwades would provide a beautiful back drop for a wedding at any point throughout the year but we feel particularly grateful that we got to enjoy them covered in snow! All of the local suppliers love working with Lanwades and we felt like we were working with one, big family in order to put together our perfect wedding. If you have guests travelling from far away then rest assured that the bedrooms at Lanwades (of which there are many!) are absolutely gorgeous and incredibly comfortable. We'll never be able to thank you enough, Lanwades, for providing the perfect venue for our perfect day x

Amazing venue, Amazing owners, Amazing wedding day
We had the most amazing wedding day here. Alex, Elvis, and their small trusted team were very accommodating when we had to delay our wedding due to covid (twice!). They genuinely cared about us and understood the important they played in our special day. The building is incredible, all of our guests were very very impressed. The gardens are very well maintained, with a mixture of manicured and wild parts. I'm so glad we paid to stay for 2 nights, with time for setting up the day before. We're even thinking about spending a future wedding anniversary in their small apartment, it's such a lovely place that will forever hold a special place in our hearts. It's definitely worth going to an open day to meet suppliers, we found our caterers, photographer, and entertainment at an open day. Lanwades is perfect for smaller weddings, very comfortably accommodating our 45 guests. We'd recommend this venue time and time again.

Lanwades Hall - A beautiful place to get married.
Beautiful, unpretentious and accommodating, Lanwades Hall provided us with that rare thing - a perfect day that felt both grand and intimate. Alex and Elvis were flexible, courteous and helpful in all their dealings with us, which certainly helped the day go off without a hitch. We are not natural organisers and lead very busy lives in the city, this venue is perfect if you are having a busy spell but still want to get married - Alex and Elvis were exceptionally helpful and guided us through many of the difficulties of the planning stages for the big day. We had the pleasure of booking the wedding weekend, an experience to be most highly recommended. Friday we were allowed to set up the venue between 12-5, which really took the stress off the morning of the big day. Friday evening we had a lovely soiree on the terrace outdoors with the 26 guests that the hall accommodates all weekend. Saturday went without a hitch, in no small part due to Alex and Elvis being on site all day from start to finish, keeping an eye out for anything they could help with behind the scenes. The hall itself and the gardens are both exceptionally beautiful, quintessentially English in character and a delightful setting for all the guests, all the more special for those who had travelled from other countries. Sunday, all the guests were treated to a wonderful English Breakfast in the Great Hall before saying their goodbyes. Thank you so much to everyone at Lanwades for making our wedding day such a special one, without regrets or compromises, only happy memories.

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!

The most amazing wedding at Lanwades Hall
We had the most amazing wedding at Lanwades Hall. Alex and Elvis are so thoughtful and kindest and did all they could for us to make our day perfect and we are so grateful. We were made welcome from the moment we spoke to them and were able to meet with them as much as needed before the big day to make plans and arrangements and they kept in touch frequently via email and phone - it was a huge weight off our minds to have someone organised and experienced with such important special occasions looking after us and helping us. Fast forward to the big day and it was everything we could have wished for. The venue itself is beautiful and we were able to capture the most amazing photos inside and out. The rooms are immaculate, the wedding suite absolutely beautiful and they were so thoughtful providing breakfast the next morning. Everyone we spoke to also said how amazing the venue was, we are so pleased we chose Lanwades Hall, such happy memories. We hope to return soon to visit.

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.
