Dream venue with the dream staff
We’ll never ever be able to thank you enough. Some people do a job well and others are born to do it & we feel so so lucky that Hales Hall is the dream venue with the dream staff too.

Ran seamlessly from start for finish
We would also like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to you, Briony and the team at Hales Hall and De’Ath Hospitality for all your help over the last 10 months and on the day itself. You have always been so professional, yet friendly and accommodating. Your expertise and guidance enabled us to put together our dream wedding, which ran seamlessly from start for finish thanks to you and your team’s efficiency and attention to detail. I have received so many compliments on the food which was delicious and the venue, which is so beautiful (many people have said it was the best they have been to - we would agree!). Anyway, we really couldn’t have done it all without you (particularly the flower girls’ entrance - thanks for facilitating that!!) and we are over the moon that we have such amazing memories and pictures of a fantastic day / weekend.

We all had a great time
Just thought I’d drop you a quick email to thank you and your team, once again, for the superb organisation that resulted in a great day on Saturday, overall a brilliant weekend. The weather played it’s part and the Barn and the gardens made it a perfect venue. We all had a great time - it’s just a pity these things, which take so long in planning, are over so quickly.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Breath-taking Enchanting Luxurious Exclusive Inspiring

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Almost everywhere you turn at Hales there is another beautiful view, but perhaps our favourite spot is the wooden bench at the end of the long topiary avenue of white roses and blue delphiniums.

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

HRH Prince Charles as been a guest at Hales Hall.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

We love it when one of our lovely local pizza vans pays a visit. The smell of freshly cooked pizza wafting around the courtyard outside the Great Barn after a night of romance and laughter is the perfect way to bring proceedings to a close.
