Ashridge House: A Gorgeous Hertfordshire Wedding Venue




  • It was Henry VIII’s Royal Residence.
  • It’s a Grade I listed building set in 190 acres of gardens and woodland.
  • And it’s only 30 minutes from London.

Ask someone what their dream wedding venue looks like and most people will probably describe somewhere similar to Hertfordshire’s Ashridge House.  We get the impression that it’s pretty impossible to over-hype this venue. 

If the house’s exterior takes your breath away, then don’t expect to catch another one inside either.  There are 9 reception rooms available to use as ceremony spaces.  There’s even a grand sweeping staircase, too, and a terrace overlooking the gorgeous gardens.  

Ashridge House takes the romance and turns it up to 10.

We’d encourage all our readers to take a peek at the venue’s website to see how this stunning house and its surrounding area could work for you both on your wedding day. What’s more, you’ll be well looked after by Ashridge’s superb wedding coordinators.


What we love about Ashridge House:


  • A historical building with outstanding natural light that’s beautifully designed, decorated and presented.

  • The sumptuous food served to please the eye before filling the belly

  • In a rural location but close to national road and rail links

  • An option of ceremony spaces
  • Superb photography opportunities both inside and out

  • Accommodation for the wedding party and guests

  • The wedding brochure is easily accessible online (no pesky information to fill out)

  • Personalised packages that can be tailored to the individual requirements of each couple

  • Ashridge House can accommodate up to 170 guests for the civil ceremony and then up to 190 guests for the wedding breakfast.

  • Open-air parking that’s free of charge.
