Sandon Hall has been ancestral home of the Harrowby family since 1776, when Nathaniel, 1st Baron Harrowby, transformed a hunting lodge into an elegant Georgian house; courtesy of the lauded architect Samuel Wyatt. A devastating fire in the mid-1800s saw the house rebuilt in the fashionable Neo-Jacobean style, and it is this imposing façade that will greet guests as they arrive for your big day. The elegance continues within - guests can enjoy drinks and canapés in the Victorian Conservatory before moving to the original library, lined with leather-bound tomes dating from the 1700s, for your civil ceremony. From here, the wedding party can socialise in the lounge; admiring the hand painted silk wallpaper and elegant furnishings and into the formal dining room with its imposing chandelier and Harrowby family portraits. The Salon provides an opulent setting for your wedding breakfast, its grand staircase allowing the newlyweds to make a dramatic entrance to guests’ rapturous applause. Whether you dream of a traditional church wedding, a civil ceremony or civil partnership, Sandon Hall can play host to the biggest day of your lives from the bridal party’s preparation though to the last dance. Not only is our library licenced for weddings, but we can also host your civil marriage in our fully licensed temple garden, allowing you and your guests to enjoy the beauty and serenity of the surroundings. What makes Sandon Hall extra special? We have our very own church nestled within the estate. The Grade I listed, 13th Century All Saints Church is a picture-perfect English rural church, with a meandering driveway through 400 acres of parkland leading the wedding party to the hall to continue the celebration. The Hall itself is set amid 50 acres of formal gardens, designed by the esteemed landscape architect William Eames. Spring and summer weddings in particular see guests spill out onto the elegant terrace and sweeping lawns, where younger guests can run freely.
