Such a Fabulous Venue
Such a fabulous venue. Amazing building with beautiful grounds. We stayed in the “attic” apartment on the second floor and found it absolutely perfect for our group of 10. We were at a corporate event and the bar was well stocked, and staff were very polite For corporate events and weddings the attic apartment is perfect for hiring during the races at Newmarket as it’s very close

The most perfect day!
We chose Lanwades as our venue very quickly. We were having a winter wedding, so the beautiful house, fireplaces and warmth was everything we were looking for. This didn't feel like a treadmill venue where you pick a package and that's what you get. From the moment we choose our date Alex and Elvis were on hand to help plan the exact day we wanted. Always so accommodating and helpful. Such a lovely team always ready to help. I really couldn't recommend Lanwades enough. The main house is beautiful and so well kept but the apartments upstairs for guest are so clean and well finished. Our guests had such a wonderful time, and we couldn't be happier.

A beautiful venue, with amazing owners
We had our wedding reception at Lanwades Hall in September 2019. The venue was perfect in every way. We utilised the gardens for a canapé reception and lovely photos in and around the house. Our wedding breakfast was in the great hall which made for an amazing setting. The venue also benefitted from bedrooms for our close family and a stunning bridal suite. Alex and Elvis the owners were extremely helpful and accommodating leading up to and on the wedding day. We will hold Lanwades Hall fondly in our hearts for years to come.

So Friendly & Helpful
Just had our wedding there and can’t describe the how perfect they made it from start to finish. So friendly and helpful every step of the way. We had to change venues 5 weeks before our big day and they couldn’t have been more helpful in accommodating us with such short notice. I can’t recommend this venue highly enough.

Couldn’t dream of getting married at a more perfect venue!
Funnily enough we found this venue by passing and searching it on google the second we got home! Within a week myself & my now husband had viewed it and instantly fell in love!! Not only with the venue but the staff also. Being told by my dad that we couldn’t possibly book the first and only venue we had viewed, myself and my dad viewed the following day... within half an hour of my dad viewing, we had paid our deposit and booked our wedding date. The building is just phenomenal & romantic and the grounds are beautiful! The staff are so welcoming and accommodating. Elvis and Alex remained in contact the whole year from booking to our wedding date. On the day everything was how we asked for and imagined. Nothing was too much trouble!! We had the bridal suite and the apartment booked for family/friends which was stunning, clean and comfortable. Lanwades Hall was the only venue we viewed and nothing would have changed our minds!! We had no need or desire to view anywhere else. Both of us knew from the minute we arrived to our first viewing!

The perfect country wedding
From the moment we entered the gates and started down the winding, stoney drive we were in love. This venue ticked all our boxes and the day delivered even more than expected. The team at Lanwades are fantastic - Alex, Elvis, Mason know what they're doing and help to ensure you have a perfect day. We were so lucky with the weather and had games laid out in the garden, along with ice cream and gin and tonics from the Whites Catering company which I also highly recommend. The venue itself is so beautiful, and every time I came back I forgot how big it was. Having lots of different rooms really suited our party and we made use of all the spaces. The bridal suite and accommodation is an added extra, not having to travel after the most tiring day of our lives was a huge plus. I wasn't able to get ready here but I would strong encourage anyone whose ceremony is here or nearby to do so!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We are as flexible as possible so we can accommodate lots of requests to really make a day personal to you both. We have hosted a traction engine, vintage buses, a lorry, confetti pony, horse and trap, family pets, dodgems, helicopters, and even a carousel!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

It can seem daunting at the start with so many choices to make. Just make one decision at a time and it will all fall into place. If you are stuck or unsure you can always ask us for advice.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Some hand made paper flowers making full bouquets and mantelpiece displays were truly impressive. Personalised luggage tags were an excellent favour, as were mini potted plants.

Intimate, Personal, Elegant, Friendly, Beautiful.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Maybe in the meadow in the summer with the wild flowers and the sound of crickets.

The Hall has historical and more recent links to royalty. Edward VII stayed here when we attended the races at Newmarket.

Anything with duck or goat's cheese!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

You'll find me at the cheese board.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The Sunken Garden is completely walled and accessed down stone steps. The beds are full of beautiful and vibrant coloured flowers and the lavender attracts countless butterflies.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The Wedding Suite always gets a wow when we show it- I always leave it for last. I love the mix of the original Edwardian elegance and charm with contemporary styles and mod-cons.
