Spotlight on...The Brocket Hall Estate, Hertfordshire

We have so many beautiful venues in our directory that it can be difficult to single one out. We’re not complaining, but with so many different locations, buildings and packages to choose from, we’re not always sure that we’re up to the task.

That being said, we couldn’t get to the end of 2015 without telling you about The Brocket Hall Estate in Hertfordshire. 

This licensed venue is set within 543 acres of parkland and has been home to two former British Prime Ministers.

Even better, it’s not too late to pre-register for a place at Brocket Hall’s wedding fayre on December 10th.

We'd highly recommend, too, that you visit the Brocket Hall Estate website; the photography of this venue is absolutely stunning (we're not kidding, click the link). 

Here’s what the venue has to say about itself on our directory, and we think you’ll agree that it makes for the perfect first step into married life.

Brocket Hall

Set within 543 acres of landscaped grounds, few properties in England can claim to have been the home to two prime ministers, played host to George IV, Queen Victoria and the infamous Lady Caroline Lamb who introduced the Waltz to England in the Ballroom - which can seat from 50 - 150 guests for your wedding breakfast. The Ballroom is sumptuously decorated with fine paintings, including the stunning ceiling painted by Sir Francis Wheatley.
