Big House Company

The feel

Hire the entire house and four acre walled Victorian gardens exclusively for a relaxed weekend house party style weekend wedding. We can help you create the atmosphere you have always dreamed of and set the pace to match – relaxed picnic hampers on the lawn or fully served meals in the marquee – you choose.

You’ll stay in the house with up to 31 of your closest friends and family for the weekend, with up to 200 guests joining you for your wedding party. Several of the elegant rooms inside the house are licensed for weddings or you may prefer the charming gazebo, nestled underneath the ancient plane tree in the garden. The marquee overlooks the sweeping lawns and is adjacent to the party room for late night dancing….

The beauty of the weekend house party wedding is that come Sunday morning you’re not saying your goodbyes and heading home, the fun carries on all weekend. Why not try a ‘chill out brunch party’ the following day with volleyball and croquet competitions, hot tubs and head massage in the gardens. Or talk to us about your ideas, we love arranging fun for our guests.

During your stay, enjoy BBQ lunches, light suppers and candle lit dinners or sumptuous brunches by the river – either prepared by us or by you and your guests – it is a house party after all! We are passionate about great food so we would love to share with you our list of excellent local caterers.

However you decide to spend your weekend here, you’ll have so many memories to cherish – it won’t feel like it’s over in a flash, it will feel like you’ve had the best weekend of your life and married the love of your life.

An example of costs for a houseparty wedding weekend for up to 80 guests:-

£15450 – £17280 depending on time of year. This includes:-


3 nights accommodation for up to 31 guests

Exclusive use of 4 acre landscaped garden
