Given the wealth of options that today’s couples have for charming and practical wedding receptions in Hertfordshire and elsewhere in the country, it’s easy to forget just how many boxes the county’s fine heritage venues tick as a place to tie the knot.

Below, we take a look at some of those advantages.

You’ve got plenty of choice

Few countries can boast the formidable inheritance of endearing historic wedding venues that Britain can, not least because we have such a great tradition of manor houses in this country.

Our own Shendish Manor is an excellent example of such a property, having been constructed in the mid-19th century for Charles Longman, of the legendary publishing firm.

Truly delightful suites await you

In light of the original purpose of the aforementioned manor house properties, it shouldn’t surprise you to hear that historic venues like Shendish Manor offer some extremely prestigious spaces lending themselves beautifully to a memorable wedding reception.

Our Manor House building itself is home to the Longman suite, for instance, which exudes period elegance, is suitable for as many as 96 guests for a wedding breakfast, and opens out onto the grounds of the estate and the Dutch gardens.

Jaw-dropping outdoor spaces

Another great traditional feature of the English country house is the parkland that customarily surrounds it.

Here at Shendish Manor, it was the famous landscaper Edward Kemp who was employed to design the gardens. Today, the 160 acres of parkland and formal gardens that make up our estate continue to delight couples, their guests, photographers and videographers alike.

Some enticing money-off deals

You might not exactly associate historic wedding venues with value for money, but many such venues do indeed present couples looking to formalise their union with some very tempting special offers.

After all, many of these venues – like Shendish Manor – also serve as hotels and/or conference venues, so they are accustomed to addressing the most specific requirements of even the most demanding people wishing to hold an event there.

Right now, Shendish Manor is advertising an especially alluring promotion to those interested in holding their wedding receptions in Hertfordshire, with the £76-per-head price including room hire, a three-course wedding breakfast, all tables, chairs, glasses, cutlery and crockery, and so much more.

Historic wedding venues aren’t without their modern comforts and conveniences

Thankfully, choosing a heritage wedding venue in 2019 doesn’t have to mean accepting less-than-perfect associated amenities and services, simply because the venue is an older one.

Shendish Manor demonstrates this with its supremely well-appointed spaces, such as the air-conditioned and adaptable Apsley Suite, as well as the experienced wedding coordinator that we assign to each couple to assist with every element of planning their special day.
