Rothamsted Manor is a very unique venue for your civil ceremony or wedding reception. The peacefully exclusive estate features huge character and 12 acres of exquisite gardens, offering you complete flexibility for your special day.
Whether it’s a civil ceremony in oak panelled splendour or a wedding reception in a marquee surrounded by the exquisite gardens and sweeping Hertfordshire countryside, not only is the venue itself unique, but you will also enjoy exclusive hire of this unrivalled venue.
The Great Drawing Room, completed in 1863, provides an elegant escape in picturesque Victorian surroundings and is ideal for those seeking classic sophistication. With spectacular views of the north-west gardens, it is the picture-perfect setting for an intimate wedding breakfast and can accommodate up to 76 guests.
For larger parties, we suggest a Civil Ceremony in the Great Drawing Room for up to 120 guests, followed by a wedding breakfast for up to 350 in an elegant marquee adjacent to our beautiful walled gardens with views over the manicured landscapes and graceful fountains.
At Rothamsted Manor, we take pride in offering you our undivided attention. Many venues book more than one wedding on the same day, however with our exclusive use packages yours will be the only wedding taking place. Furthermore, your dedicated wedding coordinator will support you at every stage of planning to ensure that your wedding is a perfect occasion to be cherished forever.
Our wedding was perfect in every way and we could not have wished for a better day. Rothamsted Manor is a beautiful house in a beautiful location and such a romantic backdrop for our wedding, all the guests fell in love with its charm immediately! On the day, the drawing room looked so elegant and the gardens were perfect. Our wedding photos are really special thanks to the wonderful setting. The staff couldn’t do enough- we were so impressed with the level of attention and the amazing service- nobody wanted for anything and everyone complimented the staff on their professional and friendly demeanour.
When it came to planning the wedding, if felt so effortless and there was no request too big or small thanks to the brilliant Katie. As for the wonderful chefs, right from the first meeting they were so accommodating and willing to give me my ideal menu and arranging tasting sessions. The food was so authentic and delicious, we have had many requests for the recipes already and rave reviews all round- we were particularly impressed with how efficiently the food came out piping hot for every table. As for the organisation, Charlotte ran the whole day so smoothly and so (seemingly) effortlessly that all we had to do was sit back and enjoy!
We were thrilled with our Wedding Day and I cannot tell you how much our guests complimented the venue, food and atmosphere. Highly recommend! More...
We recently had our son's bar mitzvah party at Rothamsted Manor and it really was the most amazing event. The venue is beautiful and being able to use the whole manor and all of the outside space was so beneficial. The planning was great and the food enjoyed by all. It really was a great find, being so close to Harpenden yet so private at the same time. My advise is to definitely consider this venue and then use all the space as best as you can (we went for an 8k run, had a football match, tour etc!!) Thanks to all of the team for making it such a memorable day! More...
