Full Description
Recently restored, Lartington Hall, set in 75 acres of glorious Parkland, is radiating undeniable wow-factor and remaining at the very forefront when it comes to delivering big days with a difference. Our core values mean we have options for every budget with weddings from just £1,995! There’s plenty to take your fancy here! Relax in your free-standing bath, take a stroll through the grounds, throw a penny in the fountain, play snooker in our 17th century games room or take dinner cooked by your personal chef. The interior style is luxuriously clean refined but retaining the character and original features of the building throughout. Beautiful, reclaimed marble floors & Venetian mirrors line the corridors that take you from the “I dos” to the party seamlessly. It’s a blend of wonderful antiques sitting harmoniously alongside the contemporary and new. An innovative ceremony space providing a grand wedding setting, unlike any other. This spacious chapel with seating for up to 120 guests, the most sumptuous finishings and beautiful ornate lighting, this hidden gem is the most romantic and splendiferous ceremony setting in the UK. During your celebrations—be it one night or three— guests can rest in one of the 12 boutique bedrooms or annex rooms all seriously stylish. The choice of bedrooms, suites and cottages vary from Ancient original ceilings to cool loft-style living, with special features such as four-poster beds, private roof terraces, hot tubs and roll top baths. Working to couples’ individual tastes and specifications with delights to suit every style of feasting, including three-course wedding breakfasts, seven-course banquets, seafood feasts, relaxed picnics and barbecues, street food and fish and chips with curry sauce for all those seaside feels. Anything is possible, so long as it tastes good.

I would give 10 stars!
John and Shona and the whole team at Lartington Hall really gave us the best wedding we could have asked for. Right from the first moment we spoke to arrange a viewing of the venue up until our sad goodbye the morning after everything was perfect. They made the whole journey so much more enjoyable and nothing was too much of an ask. Such lovely owners and staff and such a beautiful venue. It was truely a day no one will forget and one we will remember forever. The only down side is that we had to leave and cant do it all over again!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

That's a really a difficult one as they are all so different and memorable! I loved a black tie wedding with white on white details e.g. elegant white hydrangeas, Grace Kelly style gown, twinkly fairy lights, Lanvin dinner suits and white bow ties - gorgeous!

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

Just enjoy it - don't worry about a specific theme or recreating something painstakingly from Pinterest but rather focus on styles or a style you like - the rest will fall into place complete with all the little details and touches coming together harmoniously

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

One couple gave every guest a brand new shiny penny which they threw into our gorgeous fountain whilst making a wish!

Tasteful Beautiful Authentic Memorable Unique

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

That's really difficult as there are so many but I personally love the views looking out over the Park as it's some of the finest in England and that creates a simply magical backdrop. Inside, the Grand Corridor with its french grey colour scheme, gilding, marble floor & domed ceilings creates a classic, timeless look that gives simply beautiful images

Mini lobster croque monsieur - delish!
