Once a royal residence to King Henry VIII and home to his daughter, Princess Elizabeth I, Ashridge House is a spectacular Grade I listed stately home in leafy Hertfordshire, only 30 miles from London and surrounded by 190 acres of beautiful private gardens.
With its Gothic architecture, grand, turreted façades and historic grounds, Ashridge House is the perfect backdrop to host your wedding day. Whether you choose to tie the knot on the magnificent sweeping staircase overlooking the Grand Hall or say ‘I do’ in the Lady Marian Alford Room with its opulent gold leaf adorned ceiling, Ashridge House is steeped in historic charm and grandeur. If the sun is shining, using the South Terrace as your stage is a magical option as you can take advantage of the beautiful views of the historic private gardens. The Victorian Fernery set in formal gardens offers a more intimate feel for smaller weddings or elopements.
Ashridge House is also able to offer blessings in the Chapel, providing a romantic scene in which to set your day.
