Laughern Hill Estate, Worcestershire

Written by Emma Hla

We’re so proud that on Coco Wedding Venues you can find a whole host of venues, from woodlands to beaches through to grand estates. But for me, my absolute favourites are the venues that were, and still are, family homes.

One of these family homes turned wedding venue is Laughern Hill Estate and the owner, Christopher Palmer-Jeffrey, is a profound events producer and director, boasting a wealth of pedigree experience within the sector. From creating one of London’s largest events management companies, to producing and directing the famous Spring Proms series, which commenced in 1996 at the Royal Albert Hall, Christopher has established an excellent reputation and for many years was the Capital’s go to party planner!

During this time, Christopher’s main family home was Laughern Hill Estate and for him this was his tranquil escape where he could relax and enjoy time with close family and friends. In order to spend more time with his young children Christopher is now based at the Estate for much of his time and has transformed it into one of Worcestershire’s hidden gems for boutique accommodation and wedding celebrations, which has established a five star rating and reputation with both houseguests and brides.

So folks, read on and get to know Laughern Hill Estate a little better as we turn the spotlight on Christopher and his beautiful house…

About Laughern Hill…

Based in rural Worcestershire, Laughern Hill Estate is one of the only venues in England able to offer the choice of both an indoor and outdoor, ‘al fresco’, wedding experience – where to date the venue has established a profound reputation for quintessentially British fairy-tale weddings, due to its breath taking grounds and beautiful surrounding countryside.

Having achieved a stunning five stars and a number of prestigious awards, it is clear that all guests love the romantic ambiance of the entire Estate, both inside and out.

Weddings at Laughern Hill…

Laughern Hill Estate is a licensed wedding venue with various ceremony locations from which to choose.

In recent months the Estate has developed a new luxury wedding option called The Lady Isabella, which is nestled in a gorgeous area of the estate with views of the open countryside, main house, stables, and secret walled garden. For this unique location couples can choose to celebrate with their close family and friends in a traditional and beautiful marquee complete with furniture, dancefloor and linings, or can opt for something a little more quirky and fabulous by choosing one of our stunning tipis – enriched with Nordic charm thanks to bespoke extras, such as an interior roaring fire.

Weddings can take place here during both summer and winter months, enabling you to really create the day of your dreams whatever the weather!

Something a little different…

Used by the likes of Kate Moss and Robbie Williams for glamorous events, tipis provide a beautiful and relaxing venue for weddings that will wow guests from arrival. With additional extras such as chill out areas, interior roaring fires and reindeer skin linings for the seats – What’s not to love..?

With this, we also provide the option of traditional style discotheques or to create a complete festival style wedding, couples can ditch the traditional wedding DJ and opt for their very own silent disco.

Bespoke service for each and every couple…

Laughern Hill Estate has, at its disposal, an experienced team of event planners, wedding coordinators and a wealth of hand chosen suppliers, who work closely with each and every couple to create the wedding day of their dreams – from creating drinks packages and menus, to choosing wedding themes and flowers – the team can be on hand to help with each and every stage of planning.
