5 reasons why a historic wedding venue in Hertfordshire makes so much sense

Published in General

Choosing a wedding venue can be difficult in more ways than one – not least because this is a decision that you will (hopefully!) make only once in your lifetime, and it is one that you will want to get right. Otherwise, you could have major regrets. 

For some people planning Hertfordshire weddings, a historic venue like Manor of Groves may seem like the ‘safe’ choice. However, it’s also a very inspiring one – for reasons like the below.

The venue does much of the hard work for you 

Whereas there is many a venue – even in such a pretty part of England as Hertfordshire – that will necessitate you investing in extensive decorations to really bring it up to scratch for a wedding, the same can’t be said of a stunning historic property like Manor of Groves. After all, it’s already an extremely inspiring and charming place to tie the knot, even when left precisely as it is.

But there’s scope for historic decor and themes if you wish 

One other great thing about getting married at a venue as old as Manor of Groves – which owes much of its elegant appearance today to remodelling work carried out in the early 19th century – is its versatility as far as different historical eras are concerned. So, whether you fancy holding a wedding with a Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian or later theme, Manor of Groves can be beautifully decorated to suit – or again, left in its ‘standard’ state, such is the timeless charm of our suites and grounds.

Your photographer and videographer will thank you 

Splendid historic properties like Manor of Groves are precisely the kind of venues that wedding photographers and videographers dream of pointing their cameras towards! There are just so many fine and enchanting details across our exterior and interior spaces that these professionals simply love recording, and which give you plenty of possibilities for interesting poses with your beloved.

You can have the best of the old and new 

No matter how much of a history buff you may be, you will almost certainly appreciate some modern comforts at your wedding – even if it’s simply the air conditioning in our spacious and adaptable Manor Suite! Indeed, this space is situated in its own building and can accommodate as many as 500 guests, but the doors still lead out into a magnificent Oriental Garden with the likes of a flowing waterfall, Oriental timber bridge, pergola and gazebo.

Hertfordshire knows how to ‘do’ historic 

Anyone who has attended Hertfordshire weddings previously – or who has otherwise visited or holidayed here – can testify that the county serves up an embarrassment of riches as far as resplendent historic properties are concerned. From the Ashridge estate and stately home to Berkhamsted Castle and the Jacobean Hatfield House, there are so many wonderful historic sites here. Manor of Groves is just one more of these breathtaking heritage sites with which couples from far afield regularly fall in love.  

Hertfordshire weddings have always been magical, but they can barely be any more so than those at Manor of Groves.
