Full Description
Island Hall is well situated on a main & accessible road, but behind us is a true secret garden and we look out onto nothing but green as far as the eye can see. The river and Port Holme are directly behind the house, so your guests will be treated to some very special and unobstructed views. We are a small family run and owned venue and pride ourselves on a bespoke service and in providing a venue which will be exclusively yours. We don't have specific packages, but prefer to tailor everything to suit you. Helping a maximum of 15 couples each year, we are the opposite of ‘a conveyor belt wedding venue’! At Island Hall have been running events for over 30 years, but especially enjoy offering guests a unique Wedding Day experience. We aim to keep our pricing simple, with no hidden charges. Island Hall has a set Venue Hire fee and fully inclusive marquee or tent quotes (from our approved supplier) to suit your particular requirements. We are happy to recommend two approved caterers whose menus can be easily tailored and are designed to give you flexibility within your budget (something more casual like a BBQ is not a problem), to choose the right meal for this special day. We can accommodate between 10-220 guests.

A Very Special Place
We chose Island Hall for our reception wedding venue in June 2017 and can honestly say we could not have had a more perfect day. The house and grounds are stunning - we loved having drinks on the gorgeous lawn outside the house with views of the river, and then moving onto the island for a marquee reception. The ground provided so many opportunities for amazing photographs and it felt like us and our guests were in our own little magical world. I must have driven past Island Hal on the main road hundreds of times, not realising what a special place I was passing by. Christopher and Grace Vane Percy could not have been more helpful in helping us to organise our day and making us feel welcome and at home. Highly recommended either for a visit or to host a special event. Thank you. Island Hall will always have a very special place in our hearts."

A Personal Wedding Venue
"We just knew from the minute we walked into this gorgeous house that we had selected the perfect venue to get married. The house is exceptionally elegant but full of character and warmth, and Grace and her father are just the same! We were able to plan an intimate and personal ceremony in the main hall, then afterwards to share drinks and photos with our guests, enjoying the magical garden. I felt very cared for and all of our wishes were met. Island Hall is for those who wish to step off the 'wedding production' factory line and return to the roots of love and marriage."

Relaxed and Well Run
"It took us ages to get round to planning our wedding, as we wanted something in a lovely setting (involving a river) but a relaxed / casual feel where friends and family could have fun. So we didn't want to be constrained to a way of 'doing things' enforced by a stuffy venue limiting our choices. So when by pure chance someone mentioned Island Hall in passing, it was the only venue we went to look at. Even viewing on a cold winters day we knew it would be perfect... In reality on a summers day it was even more perfect and so many of our guests said it was one of the nicest wedding settings they had ever been too. Being allowed to add lots of our own touches made it even better. Christopher and Grace from the very first meeting and any subsequent dealings were extremely helpful and accommodating, offering both tips and solutions when needed. And on the day behind the scenes made everything run smoothly! If the pictures on the website haven't already sold it to you then we couldn't praise Island Hall highly enough. We had a perfect day and words just don't do that justice in a simple testimonial. Thank you Christopher and Grace!"

Dream Venue
“Island Hall was the first wedding venue we looked at and as soon as we stepped inside the spectacular house we knew we'd found our dream venue. The house itself (including the magnificent staircase!) was very beautiful but not overbearing. The immaculate gardens were the perfect setting for our August wedding in the sunshine and all of our guests absolutely loved the venue - with most having never known of it despite us living nearby. (This was one of the many things I loved about Island Hall - not many people have heard of it so your wedding is truly unique). Heading over the bridge to the Island was very magical and felt like a fairytale. Here we celebrated all night with our loved ones. A huge thank you to Christopher and Grace for all of their advice and guidance with the planning and a special mention to Brian for ensuring our day went off without a hitch! A truly hidden gem in the heart of Cambridgeshire and we couldn't recommend highly enough!”

Ideal For A Chilled Wedding
"We had no idea where we wanted to get married, but we knew we wanted a chilled, laid back wedding. When we found Island Hall we knew it was something special. On going to meet Grace at the venue, we could only imagine ourselves here, and didn't bother going to look at any other venues...we knew this was the one...it was love at first sight! Grace and Christopher were amazing! They helped with the finest of details, from Christopher sailing us from our church to Island Hall on the 'Island Queen' down the river Ouse, to letting us hide our surprise surfboard wedding presents from one another and being in total cahoots with us! We were able to get the most unimaginable photographs of us strolling around the grounds, in amongst the weeping willow and a perfect sunset shot as the sun set over Porte Holme meadow - the exact place we had our first date. Our guests commented on how friendly and hospitable the Vane Percy's were and what an incredible secret Huntingdon had to offer in Island Hall. Zak and I have lived in Huntingdon all of our lives and never imagined such beauty lay behind this grand house in Godmanchester! Being able to say we sailed from our church to venue and then had our wedding breakfast on an Island is not something a lot of people can say, and we're so grateful that we can! We absolutely love Island Hall - we smile every time we drive past it and always walk over to the river bank on the meadow opposite, sighing in disbelief that we got married there!"
