Hedsor House offers the perfect regal country house location.
With all the romance and splendour of a majestic Georgian country mansion, critically-acclaimed Hedsor House offers a truly magical wedding location.
You can’t help but be impressed from the moment the elegant former residence of Augusta the Dowager Princess of Wales is revealed at the end of the private wooded kilometre-long drive.
Nestled in 100 acres of beautiful parkland in Buckinghamshire with breathtaking panoramic views overlooking the River Thames, the privately-owned house, which dates back to 1166, offers a picture-perfect backdrop no matter what the season.
Fields of daffodils, bluebells and rhododendrons cover the grounds in the spring while its beautiful evergreen Cedar of Lebanon trees create a beautiful winter wonderland.
Whether you are planning an intimate 60-guest ceremony with a quintessentially English theme featuring croquet on the beautifully manicured lawns, or are hosting a 140-guest elegant and stylish wedding breakfast, when Hedsor House becomes exclusively yours for the day, the only limit is your imagination!
If you are wanting to invite larger numbers, a marquee can be set up in the gardens for up to 800 people.
Last year 92 weddings were held at the house, which is located just 40 minutes from central London. Some choose dancing in the grand domed Centre Hall while others held fireworks extravaganzas on the lawns or simply relaxed in the Sunken Garden. Others opted to arrive in style by either vintage car, traditional red London double-decker bus or by helicopter.
Rachel Kelly, who recently married husband Will at Hedsor House, quickly discovered Hedsor House’s licensed rooms and extensive grounds can be easily tailored to create your own perfect and private celebration.
She said: “We were looking for somewhere that offered a blank canvas so we could choose the exact suppliers to make and transform it into our own special and magical day. We ended up with two venues on our short-list but as soon as we visited Hedsor House, we just loved it and knew it was for us!”
If you think the venue looks familiar, you are correct! Captured on camera, Hedsor House is one of the UK’s most prestigious film locations appearing in a number of big-screen box office hits such as The Golden Compass and Quartet, where it featured as the fictional ‘Beecham House’ in Dustin Hoffman’s hit film about a group of retired opera singers.
Film directors are enticed by its grandeur as its small-screen credits also include popular prime-time TV dramas such as Downton Abbey, 24, the BBC’s Sense and Sensibility, Little Dorritt, Midsomer Murders, Spooks and New Tricks.
So if you have ever dreamt of feeling like royalty or a film star on your big day, now’s your chance. For further information about getting married at Hedsor House or to book an appointment, visit www.hedsor.com or call 01628 819050.
