Full Description
  • People often ask why Lartington Hall is so magical - there are 3 main reasons people fall in love ... – There is so much space, all of it absolutely gorgeous, and it’s a mix of grand, elegant, light filled rooms, stunning high ceilings and raised lanterns together with more rustic spaces created in the 17C part of the House such as our Snug and Snooker Rooms . As its an exclusive hire venue, couples get to plan their big day around the many magical spaces – where to have their afternoon tea on arrival, where to have their private dining, where to marry, where to have their wedding breakfast where to cut the cake, where to dance, where to after party and so on. There’s no time lost on the big day resetting rooms and they also get to ‘reveal’ the Hall and its hidden secrets to their guests bit by bit as their day progresses. I never tire of seeing the guests’ reactions as another room such as the Ballroom or Chapel or the wonderful gardens are revealed to them for the first time – you can actually hear audible gasps! – The interiors are loved by everyone and on a first visit people definitely fall in love with the sumptuous ground floor spaces as well as the luxurious bedrooms – I’m often asked what the paint colours are or where I’ve sourced various things! The quality and detailing in the interior schemes is crucially important to people and from the very first visit they feel really at home! As the Hall is private and exclusive to just the couple and their friends and family, this means it genuinely is their home for the time they are with us too! – Finally our Head Chef has a Michelin star background and so our food is super delicious as well as perfectly presented and packed full of the most wonderful flavours

Ask a question
Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
That's a really a difficult one as they are all so different and memorable! I loved a black tie wedding with white on white details e.g. elegant white hydrangeas, Grace Kelly style gown, twinkly fairy lights, Lanvin dinner suits and white bow ties - gorgeous!
What’s your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Just enjoy it - don't worry about a specific theme or recreating something painstakingly from Pinterest but rather focus on styles or a style you like - the rest will fall into place complete with all the little details and touches coming together harmoniously
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
One couple gave every guest a brand new shiny penny which they threw into our gorgeous fountain whilst making a wish!
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Tasteful Beautiful Authentic Memorable Unique
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
That's really difficult as there are so many but I personally love the views looking out over the Park as it's some of the finest in England and that creates a simply magical backdrop. Inside, the Grand Corridor with its french grey colour scheme, gilding, marble floor & domed ceilings creates a classic, timeless look that gives simply beautiful images
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
Many! People travel from all over the world to marry or have a house party at Lartington Hall
What’s your favourite canapé?
Lobster croque monsieur - delish!
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
Espresso martini or bacon sandwiches and bloody mary
What is your venue's most unique feature?
It's heart stoppingly beautiful - oh yes we have a chapel and ballroom too, plus a Chef with Michelin Star background!
What part of your business are you most proud of?
Our stunning interiors
