Important information about your visit to Manor of Groves

Bishop’s Stortford makes a lot of sense as a base for your wedding

Published in General

The market town of Bishop’s Stortford may not, on first inspection, appear to be the most obvious place in England for any loved-up couple to tie the knot. After all, with its population of only about 40,000 people, it might seem an unlikely focal point for anyone on the lookout for a suitably romantic, practical and affordable wedding venue.

It’s well worth looking again, though, at this apparently modest and unassuming town. Bishop’s Stortford’s location, for one thing, lends itself beautifully to your venue search. Get married here or nearby, and you will be barely a 30-minute train ride away from central London, to say nothing of the M11 motorway that would make it even easier to all invited guests to reach your chosen venue.

There are many other advantages that could await you, however, when you make your choice of wedding venue in Stortford the incomparable Manor of Groves.

A true Hertfordshire heritage treasure

Strictly speaking, our own hotel and wedding venue is not in Bishop’s Stortford, instead being situated just seven or so miles away, via the A1184 and A1060 roads. More specifically, you’ll find us in the village and civil parish of High Wych near Sawbridgeworth, which certainly provides the idyllic, tranquil and historic backdrop that you may have long dreamed of for your wedding.

It all goes to show that you and your beloved searching for a wedding venue in Stortford or nearby could throw up some wonderful surprises, which can be encountered both inside and outside our elegant former Georgian country house.

The grounds of our venue, for instance, are utterly delightful, offering two charming outdoor gazebos and even presenting you both with the opportunity to exchange your vows al fresco, if you so wish. The surrounding 150 acres of jaw-dropping Hertfordshire countryside further ensure that any photographers or videographers you hire for your big day will find it easy to provide a picturesque background on which to capture never-to-be-repeated moments.

Naturally, those pleasures continue inside our venue’s walls, for you and your sweetheart as well as prospective attendees – of which as many as 500 can be accommodated in the air-conditioned Manor Suite. The Colonnade Suite, meanwhile, exudes historic charm, and is an excellent choice for those expecting up to 120 guests for their wedding breakfast, and 150 at the evening reception.
