Wonderful Day
We would like to say a huge thank you to you and the wonderful staff, especially Andrew for all his promptings and help along the way, to all your amazing waiting and bar staff. Our guests had a wonderful day and everyone mentioned how beautiful The Lawn is. Martin and myself are very grateful to all you have done for us and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so special.

We want to offer you and your team a massive thank you. We know it was a long road with us (4 different dates I think) and you have been nothing but patient, kind and helpful. Our wedding day was everything we wanted it to be. The venue looked perfect, the food was delicious and the staff were so friendly and attentive the whole day. The day was so relaxed, with your team gently guiding us through the day. We are so pleased that we did not give up on our dream of having our wedding at your venue, it was most definitely worth the wait. We had family travel from across the country and they all commented on what a beautiful setting we had for our special day. The Lawn really is a special place.

We had our wedding at The Lawn on 09.10.21 and what a day it was.  I want to say an extra special thank you to David and Mandy, you both were just incredible.  To the rest of the staff, thank you for really making our day special and all going out of your way throughout the day.  We initially booked our wedding with just 7 short weeks to prepare. The Lawn were always attentive and on hand with any of our requests or questions.  If anyone is looking for a relaxed, beautiful, characteristic venue, this is for you.  Thanks again.

Thank you
We just wanted to thank you for the most amazing day on Saturday. The whole day was amazing from start to finish and wouldn't have been possible without every single member of staff who worked.  From the bar staff and waiting staff to The Managers. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and how delicious the food was. We particularly would like to thank Rebecca for all of her hard work and reassurance on the day and Andrew for his support.  Thank you again for making our day so special.

Press & Awards

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

With twenty seven years’ worth of weddings behind us, selecting just one of them for that accolade is nigh on impossible. There have been so many weddings at The Lawn that have been truly memorable for all the right reasons.

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

It is all about the Bride & Groom celebrating their wedding and not all about the guests. It is a Big Day but should also be a fun day and not a day spent worrying that every last guest has received the right personalised favour. Relax, enjoy and you will find that your guests will too!

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

Often a couple will have a very special, furry friend who they want to have with them to really make the day complete. Whether a dog playing a key role during the ceremony or a horse joining the couple for photos during the drinks reception, we like our couples to want for nothing on their wedding day.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Romantic (it has been selected as one of the top ten most romantic venues in the country). Exclusive (we will only ever host one wedding at a time). Welcoming (it retains the character and warmth of the Manor House home that it once was). Idyllic (set in three acres of landscaped gardens with 120 acres of parkland). Memorable (our couples and their guests often speak fondly about and recommend our venue for years after the wedding day).

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Too many to list. Our wedding photographers love this venue as they have the run of the house with it’s sweeping staircase, galleried hall and full length balcony along with its stunning gardens, fountain and expansive lawns. It really is one big photographic backdrop!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Numerous famous guests, including a England Rugby Captain, a leading Formula One driver, a certain very well known Radio 2 day time presenter and a wedding for an silver medal winning Olympic rower.

What’s your favourite canapé?

The Thai fish ball is to die for.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Bacon butties all round!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

It may sound strange but it would be its ‘feel’. Almost to a couple, our Brides & Grooms develop a special bond with The Lawn and comment how relaxed and at home they feel. It is a very special place.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

It has to be the people that make it all possible - from the Wedding side through to the garden, maintenance and Estate teams. It is a family run business and many comment the staff is like a large family as well. This is reflected in the atmosphere of calm and friendly professionalism that such a team creates. Our events team pull out all the stops for their clients. It is not just about selling and all the team members, including the owner, that conduct the viewings would also be involved in the planning and the management on the day. The majority of the team have been here for over ten years and have literally thousands of weddings’ worth of experience. Everything just flows. They are the best!
