Hampton Court House Wedding Venue in Surrey

Hampton Court House Wedding Venue in Surrey

Information about the venue

Surrounded by nine acres of beautiful Surrey parkland and its own landscaped sunken garden with palm trees and a heart-shaped lake with swans, Hampton Court House is a romantic environment to host civil ceremonies, partnerships and wedding celebrations. Add in the fact that it’s also an exquisite Georgian mansion opposite the famous Hampton Court Palace, and its distinctive character and charm immediately become apparent.

Hampton Court House is simply stunning, an elegant mansion featuring traditional architecture and décor, once described as ‘suitable for a wealthy merchant Prince.’ Built in 1727 for the 2nd Earl of Halifax as a love token for his mistress, romantic touches, such as the heart-shaped lake and shell-clad grotto, transform it into a truly magical location. Hampton Court House is unique – a fairy tale venue where the dreams of any wedding couple automatically become reality and with countless opportunities to capture spectacular wedding photography.

The main house of this magnificent 18th-century mansion features a beautiful array of majestic spaces to host either civil ceremonies, partnerships or receptions. The grand dining hall and adjoining conservatory can accommodate up to 150 seated guests. Its traditional black and white chequerboard floor, high ceilings and gilt décor portray elegance, while brightly painted walls give it a more modern appearance.

In contrast, the main hall has a more opulent feel with its marble pillars, balconied gallery, focal point feature fireplace, floor-to-ceiling drapes, and ornate chandeliers. It has a light and airy atmosphere as the hall is illuminated by natural light through a beautiful glass skylight ceiling. Again, with the ability to accommodate up to 150 guests, a dance floor transforms this space into a perfect setting for ceremonies, receptions and evening entertainment. Elegant marquees are also available for the external grounds, accommodating up to 400 guests.

Great wedding photo opportunities

As expected, dining within Hampton Court House is an experience to savour. The venue has an exclusive catering team of highly trained personnel offering a wide selection of traditional wedding menus. All are individually tailored to meet the requirements of wedding parties, whether it be a lavish banquet for 400 guests or a smaller, intimate buffet-type reception. The venue prides itself on using the finest and freshest seasonal produce with menus to accommodate all ages, tastes and dietary needs. Alternatively, external catering suppliers’ use of the venue’s kitchens is welcomed, although an additional surcharge will be applicable for this.

As well as being a prestigious wedding venue, Hampton Court House hosts an independent school during term time. Therefore, it is unable to provide accommodation for bridal parties. However, there is an abundance of hotels and guest houses within the immediate vicinity, which should provide adequate overnight facilities for families and friends, if required.

Easily accessible from the capital

Whilst being conveniently located for London and the south—Waterloo Station is a 30-minute direct journey from nearby Hampton Court Station—this imposing Grade II Listed building uniquely introduces a tranquil, historic countryside haven to modern-day London / Surrey borders. Without a doubt, a wedding held here will amaze and enthral and provide a lifetime of treasured memories.
