Outstanding, incredible, and a lifetime of memories. I viewed many venues and there was no better setting for us than the beautiful Ashridge House. From the house itself to the grounds, the whole place oozes class and quality. A day we will never forget, and we will be back to visit on many occasions. Everything was 5 star, we just wish we could do it all again.

The wedding experience at Ashridge was like nothing we have seen before. We had zero issues and the whole day ran as a dream. So much attention to detail. The day felt so stress free and relaxing. Everyone seemed willing to go above and beyond.

When a daughter tells her father ‘This was the day I dreamt of’ one cannot ask for more than that. It was the stuff of fairy tales.

It was my dream wedding venue from an early age. Our wedding breakfast was truly delicious and catered to our special dietary requirements with ease. All the staff were welcoming, interested, and good at their jobs. Virtually every guest commented on the exceptionally high level of service from everyone.

designed your way

We understand that no two weddings are the same, so we have developed an extremely flexible approach to wedding coordination. All of our wedding packages can be tailored to suit each couple’s individual needs and preferences.

We’ve had owls deliver the wedding rings, cakes cut with axes, and a Toy Story inspired nerf gun competition take place in the Old Library, so we are certainly no strangers to bringing unique requests to life.

All function spaces interconnect so your guests can move easily between the rooms creating a natural flow to your day.
