Weddings – ‘Your Day, Your Way’
Prestwold Hall is only available for exclusive hire, which guarantees your seclusion and privacy. A setting that will make you feel like you are marrying ‘At Home, at Prestwold Hall’. You and your guests are encouraged to relax from the moment you arrive.
No two weddings are the same and each is as unique as the couple at the heart of it. Choosing Prestwold Hall as your wedding venue will see your unique personalities reflected at every turn, from the fresh flowers and decorations, to the drinks, menus and music. It’s your celebration, so you lead the way. Each and every one of the weddings we host are bespoke and customised to your personal taste.
We offer a limited number of dates to couples who wish to celebrate over a longer period with our ‘Deluxe Weekend Celebration’ (please ask for further details and a bespoke quote).
And, as for the ceremony, there are three locations to choose from —in the House, outside in the Georgian Gazebo or in our Church. Whichever you decide to choose, the elegant rooms and rose garden will provide a distinctive backdrop to your wedding

Ceremonies Outdoors in the Gardens
The Georgian gazebo, which is set amid our carefully manicured gardens with boast sweeping views of the park, creates a relaxed and romantic summertime wedding location.
With freshly cut flowers adorning the gazebo walls, it offers a truly magical wedding scene.

Ceremonies in the Church
The 13th century Church of St Andrew is located just over 100 yards from the house and is accessible via a picturesque walk through the gardens.
Steeped in history, this ancient church is a magical and romantic place to say your vows, with the reception party afterwards taking place with just a short stroll through the churchyard.
The church is able to accommodate 160 guests. Read more about the history of the church.
When looking for your wedding venue, the food should play a huge part in the decision-making process.
At Prestwold Hall you will have free reign of Head Chef, Marcus Lockwood’s culinary expertise and imagination, giving you the freedom of choice. Marcus has been delighting our wedding guests for over 15 years, but never stands still and always adopts the latest food styles.
Marcus and his team will create the daytime menu you most desire, whether it’s entirely of your own design or from the carefully curated menu selections.
Each dish only features the finest of ingredients and seasonal produce in his kitchen which is served with Marcus’ own culinary skill and individual imagination.
For your evening party, we have a tempting array of casual evening food options, including street food, BBQs and sourdough pizzas made on our wood fired pizza oven.
We have an extensive list of wines from around the world to suit all palates. We also provide a handy guide to food matching to complement your chosen menu.
Our House bar is located in the traditionally styled old dining room, and we are always delighted to set up a separate bar to ‘Jazz up Your Gin’, ‘Pimp Your Prosecco’ or simply offer a bottle bar for your reception drinks. We also have a cocktail list and can design a bespoke cocktail for your special day or even source a cherished real ale.
Prestwold has been hosting lively evening parties for centuries and yours will be the latest in a long and distinguished line of fine celebrations.
Watch the library transform with the help of contemporary lighting into a packed dance floor with a night club feel. Bands and DJs are equally welcome to help you dance the night away!
At Your Service
We are incredibly lucky to have many long serving members of staff, both in the kitchen and front of house. Henry, MJ and Marcus have all been with the company for 15 to 20 years and have clocked up some amazing wedding mileage, managing over 4,000 weddings between them.
They will apply this deep experience to your celebration whilst welcoming your personal ideas for your special celebration. We will advise you every step of the way via your own personal choice of meetings, email and phone/skype/facetime.
We only ever hold one wedding on a day at Prestwold Hall so that it is truly ‘your day, your way.’
Sympathetically designed to provide contemporary comforts within a historic setting, our bedrooms are available exclusively for you and your loved ones.. We are delighted to serve night caps for you to enjoy in our late lounge, encouraging your guests to chill out and celebrate a little longer into the night, before falling tired and happy into our sumptuous beds.
There are four recently renovated double bedrooms, and a further six bedrooms, available for guests with all the necessary comforts required for a relaxing stay.
You and your guests will wake up to sweeping views of the park and gardens, before heading downstairs for a delicious breakfast party in the old dining room – the perfect end to your stately home-from-home wedding celebration.
