Introducing Hedsor House – An Exclusive Use Wedding Venue

Written by Emma Hla
The title of this feature is a little misleading, because Hedsor is a pretty iconic venue and as such really doesn’t need much in the way of an introduction.

Hedsor House is an exclusive-use Georgian Stately Home based in Buckinghamshire, and has a rich and vibrant history leading all the way to its current custodians – the Shephard family. The team at Hedsor are creative, passionate, professional and pretty exceptional at delivering bespoke wedding celebrations.

Notes from the Venue

Our Venue + Ethos

The house was once famously the home of the Dowager Princess of Wales, mother of George III and the founder of Kew Gardens. Fascinating diary entries describe how the house regularly welcomed kings, queens and royal children from nearby Windsor Castle. The house sits high up above the Thames Valley, amongst 100 acres of parkland, with formal gardens and its own herd of Highland cattle. Voted as Tatler and Vogue’s dream wedding venue, it offers complete privacy for a wedding of up to 150 guests.

In 1934, Hedsor House was generously gifted to Florence and Philip Shephard as a wedding present. Today, the house is now led by the fourth generation of Shephards, brothers, Nick, Mark and Hamish who, in 2008, transformed Hedsor into a wedding and filming venue as they wanted to share the estate with others. The house has certainly been transformed throughout the years; however, it still has the same magical feeling it did since the day Florence and Philip moved in long ago.

The Hedsor team are passionate about delivering an exceptional experience for all our couples, from the moment they enquire, through to the wedding day itself. We love getting to know couples and helping them not only find the perfect date for their wedding, but guiding them through the whole planning journey. Our aim is to help every couple feel relaxed, supported and overall, a part of the Hedsor family. Hedsor was originally a family home, and we want all our couples to feel ‘at home’ with our team, and on their special day.

Luxurious, historical, memorable, elegant, British, classic, bespoke, unique, family-owned, sustainable, unexpected and award-winning.

Your Wedding Experience

Couples can hire our venue on an exclusive-use basis and have use of the stunning interiors, along with the gardens and our overnight accommodation of 13 bedrooms. We pride ourselves on attention to detail; we know it’s the small touches that really make the difference so everything at Hedsor is beautifully delivered and memorable. We constantly update and improve the House, and our offering. An example of this is the introduction of our recent Canine Concierge service which enables couples to bring their family dog to the wedding with them, knowing it will be looked after and as welcome as their other guests.

Our couples receive a bespoke planning experience where they feel excited, relaxed and held each step of the way. We want our brides and grooms to have a wedding day that goes above expectations and creates memories which will last a lifetime.

Our Planning Advice

In addition to loving the venue, be sure to love the team just as much! More times than not, you will be working with your dedicated wedding specialist for 12+ months so it is important you feel understood and valued.
