Wedding Day - so special
We just wanted to say a huge thank you to the wonderful team at The Lawn for making our wedding day so special on 10th September. All our guests commented about how beautiful the venue looked and how very well organised our wedding was. We were very impressed how accommodating all your staff were. Despite buying a package, you still were willing to change elements when asked, such as the food, without any fuss. This worked well for us when bringing together two cultures for our big day.

Heartfelt thanks
I would like to send my heartfelt thanks to all the staff at the Lawns. They could not have been more helpful and attentive to all the guests to make Holly and James’ day so special. Not because Holly is my daughter but l can honestly say it was one of the best or even the best weddings l have attended. It was a particularly hot day and the staff were always helpful, polite with a big smile on their faces. Thank you once again for a brilliant day. Kind regards John Murphy

Everything was just perfect
We are both still trying to process the fabulous day we had just two short weeks ago. You probably noticed from behind the scenes that we could not have wished for a better day and that EVERYTHING was just PERFECT! We have heard time and time again from so many of our guests that our wedding at The Lawn was absolutely fantastic. We have you to thank for being such a brilliant venue and for taking care of so many details. There was not one thing that we would have changed.

Our Wedding Day
We got married at The Lawn (August 2023) and I can truly say it was the best wedding decision we made. From the second we turned up to our viewing appointment we felt we were going to be in good hands. David made sure we felt comfortable with our decision and never made us feel like we had to go with them. When we had a million questions he was always on the other side of a phone call or email to help answer everything we needed.

Truly unforgettable
My Husband and I wanted to take a moment to extend our heartfelt gratitude to you and your amazing team for making our wedding day truly unforgettable. From the moment we discovered your venue at the age of 18, we knew it was the perfect place for our special day. Now, at the age of 23, we can confidently say that choosing your venue was the best decision we ever made. Everyone involved in our wedding was incredibly kind and went above and beyond to ensure that everything was perfect for us.

Frequently Asked Questions

Describe the best wedding that happened at The Lawn?

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 The Lawn 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 The Lawn?

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 The Lawn?

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 The Lawn 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!
