Stunning lawns, beautiful gardens and historic outbuildings, to include a clock tower with a ‘Romeo and Juliet’ style balcony, complement this gracious house; making photo opportunities endless.
The staff at Hinwick House aim to be as flexible as possible when it comes to accommodating your specific requirements. They are aware that you will most likely have a wonderful range of ideas to make your big day unique and special, and their helpful and friendly team will do their utmost to ensure that you can have the wedding day you’ve dreamed of.
Up to 80 guests can be seated for a wedding breakfast in the impressive Great Hall or a marquee can be linked directly to the Great Hall to create a dining area for larger parties. This means that if you have more than 80 guests you can still make use of the Great Hall for your ceremony and also for dancing later in the evening. A dramatic, double height Victorian Lounge Bar is also available to be used in conjunction with the Great Hall. However, if you are simply in search of a gorgeous and unique setting for your marquee wedding then you need look no further. The up-lit, elegant, Queen Anne wing of the house provides a truly stunning and romantic backdrop for marquees positioned on the formal lawn or parkland.
Licenses have been applied for for civil ceremonies to take place in the rustic Great Hall and the elegant formal rooms with up to 120 guests. Alternatively, a celebrant is on offer to carry out a blessing and formal exchange of vows anywhere within the house, beautiful clock tower or within the grounds.
You and your guests will be given exclusive use of the venue and grounds, enabling your wedding to be private and intimate.
