All kinds of wonderful
Last Saturday my partner Matt and I got married under the gazebo at Penton Park with a string quartet playing beside us. Guests were seated on a lawn mown to size in the wild meadow. Afterwards we had a confetti shot outside the front of the beautiful house before heading to the lawn for our reception. Guests played croquet, took photos of themselves in the hammock and on the swing, and said hello to Marmaduke, Penton Park's friendly Irish Wolfhound, and Fudge, the loveliest little lurcher, who we asked to join us for part of the reception. We dined then danced in the ballroom. By the end of the night guests could be found on the dancefloor, playing the piano and signing around it, chatting by the bar and catching up with family around the fire pit or curled up on the sofas. It's such a versatile venue and for a day it feels like home, filled with all your favourite people. Danielle, her husband Guy and Michelle, the Events Coordinator, took such wonderful care of us and our guests. They are so warm, knowledgeable, responsive, thoughtful and helpful - everything you could ever want when planning your wedding and enjoying the day itself. If you want to see just how organised they are, ask to see one of the event sheets they put together after their final operational meeting with each couple (4-6 weeks before the wedding) - you know you're in the safest pair of hands once you've seen how much they think of for you!

Rain or shine, its the perfect place!
As we live overseas, we booked Penton Park for our wedding "sight unseen" and any nervousness we had immediately disappeared when we saw it for the first time and were greeted by Danielle and Guy like old friends - and with a glass of champagne. It was everything we were looking for - a beautiful outdoor space and historic country house, an intimate and personal setting, the most wonderful hosts, a place that felt like home, and not least a giant dog! This is the polar opposite to a corporate wedding factory, it is a true home and it was an honour that we were able to get married there. We felt so special, like old friends! Michelle and Danielle were so attentive to our many questions, and seemed genuinely pleased and excited about all our plans as we were. We had no problem organizing things from afar, and used many of the excellent "preferred suppliers" from Penton Park, which made things really easy. On the day, everything went flawlessly thanks to the superb organization skills of Michelle and even though we had to implement our wet weather plan, the ballroom looked so beautiful that now I couldn't imagine anything else. The happy memories of our wedding are forever intertwined with Penton Park. For us, it was the perfect venue for such a special day. Thank you xo Anna & Alex

The perfect wedding venue
We had our wedding reception here in the summer and could not have picked a better place. The venue is stunning and Danielle and Michelle are superb at making the day absolutely perfect. The whole team on the day went above and beyond in every way and we and our guests had a wonderful day.

the MOST amazing, incredible wedding day....
The MOST amazing, incredible wedding day we ever could have wished for with outstanding hosts (thank you Michelle, Danielle, Guy and all the fantastic Penton staff), it felt like a house party (albeit a very classy and beautiful house) we could not have felt more welcome and at home throughout the day and evening... in fact even the morning after was a delight!

atmosphere that could only be described as magical
My sister and brother-in-law had their wedding there Saturday 19th November. Very impressed with the venue, the owners were lovely and caterers, bar staff, door men and co-ordinators were amazing. It was a brilliant day for everyone, there was an atmosphere that could only be described as magical and I'm sure every single family member and guest enjoyed every single minute. I know I did and I'm in no doubt Rosie and John did too

Thank you penton park. We had our wedding at penton park. Danielle guy and Michelle we amazing. So warm welcoming and funny. We visited penton park and we were made to feel so welcome we had our wedding there it was the best decision we made. All our guests were so impressed with the house/venue. The staff were organised and made our day special my now wife was made to feel like a princess for the whole day. The staff went the extra mile for us. (Our 9 month old daughter was asleep when the dinner was being served that the bar person looked after her- amazing). Our caterers were first class, the food was so good that our guests were taking photos and posting them. Gemma and her mum were so lovrly we will never forget them. They looked after us so well thankyou. John and Rosie 19th November 2016.

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Probably our own! Back in 2011 when we first realised Penton was a pretty fabulous place to celebrate your big day. A very close second is the wedding of Aimee and Matt who were the first couple to formally marry on site - now that was an emotional moment for everyone having spent 2 years in planning for our licence!!!

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

Relax and enjoy - your guests take their lead from you, if you are relaxed and enjoying yourselves your guests will follow suit. That's one of the main reasons we brought on board our Events Manager to know on your day you don't have to worry about a thing.

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

Two science teachers who had a table plan which was test tubes with liquid that changed colour when you added a certain chemical!!!! Test tubes, safety glasses, it was the most unique and personal table plan we have ever seen!

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Exclusive, sophisticated, welcoming and friendly

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

There's so many... maybe one of our stunning old trees? (One is rumoured to be over 600 years old!)

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

That would be telling....

What’s your favourite canapé?

Desert Canapes!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

It's got to be a cheese station!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our exclusivity and that we genuinely care about every single couple, there are very few venues where the owners genuinely host you in their home, ensuring a professional yet friendly experience for every person at your wedding.
