Oakley Hall Hotel

The feel

The Setting

Begin your journey into wedded bliss at Oakley Hall Hotel, a captivating 18th-century Georgian manor nestled in 315 acres of scenic Hampshire countryside. With a rich history intertwined with connections to the esteemed Jane Austen, who counted the Bramstons, the original proprietors, among her close acquaintances, Oakley Hall Hotel serves as the quintessential backdrop for your love story. It’s even speculated that Austen’s literary masterpiece, Mansfield Park, draws inspiration from the splendour of Oakley Hall, with the character of Lady Bertram mirroring the elegance of Mrs. Bramston.

Step into the enchanting Woodland Pavilion, offering a picturesque outdoor setting for your licensed ceremony amidst the lush backdrop of the estate’s sprawling landscapes. With majestic oak beams framing the scene, this idyllic locale sets the stage for cherished memories, accommodating up to 160 guests, and for those parties larger than life, the venue can also host up to 350 for a breakfast.


Your Preparation

As you prepare for your big day, luxuriate in the Whitchurch Suite, their wedding preparation haven designed with the discerning bride or groom in mind. Equipped with three illuminated vanity mirrors, a curtained-off dressing area, a mini drinks fridge, and a cosy lounging space, this sanctuary ensures you’re pampered and poised for the perfect day ahead.

The Garden Room and Garden Pavilion seamlessly blend indoor elegance with outdoor allure. A grand chandelier graces the vaulted ceiling, while the terrace overlooks a serene sunken garden and a tranquil pond and beautiful fountain.

As the day unfolds, guests are invited to savour drinks at our oak-panelled bars or al fresco on the terrace, while the newlyweds capture cherished moments amidst the enchanting backdrop of the estate’s historic grounds. The venue has 50 bedrooms onsite, including a private 3-bedroom cottage, ensuring your guests can relax and unwind in comfort.

Oakley Hall Hotel proudly offers comprehensive services for Asian weddings, understanding the unique cultural and traditional elements that make these celebrations special. From vibrant and elaborate décor to authentic cuisine, our experienced team is dedicated to creating an unforgettable experience that honors your heritage.

Additionally, we offer dry hire options, allowing you to bring in your preferred caterers and decorators to further personalise your celebration and give you the freedom and flexibility to create a truly bespoke wedding experience.
