Ceremony & Reception Rooms
We offer couples the choice of two superb locations in which to make their vows:
The Blue Room
The elegantly panelled Blue Room is steeped in history and was at one time the original ballroom of the Hall. Today its ornate ceiling, carved panelled walls and stunning views of the gardens offer a perfect setting in which to hold your wedding ceremony. The Blue Room is licenced to hold civil ceremonies and can seat 100 guests.
The Blue Room can also provide intimate dining in elegant surroundings for 60 formally seated guests at any time of the year, but is particularly suited to Christmas and winter weddings when the house sparkles with lights and roaring log fires.
The Grand Hall
The Grand Hall is the large imposing historic entrance to the manor house. The unique Jacobean fireplace is an outstanding feature of the grand Hall which also boasts an elegant sweeping carved oak staircase and listed flagstone floor. The Hall is licenced to hold civil ceremonies and can seat 95 guests. It is also an ideal room in which to hold the welcome reception drinks for 150 guests in winter, with a roaring log fire and a festive, beautifully decorated Christmas tree in late November and December.
The Piano Room and Library provide great areas for relaxing and mingling:
The Piano Room
With its modern furnishings, high ceilings, original baby grand piano and impressive views of the front drive, the Piano Room is an elegant reception room in which guests may wish to take a breather during the evening reception. The groom, best man and ushers can use this room on the morning the ceremony for additional preparations.
The library, with its elegant blend of plush fabrics, modern décor, pieces of antique furniture and family portraits, provides a warm and relaxing reception room where guests may choose to relax for a while whilst sipping drinks and catching up with old friends and family.
