Holywell Hall provides the perfect backdrop to bring your dream of a quintessential English and classic country garden wedding to life. Say your vows surrounded by those you love most in the world. Celebrate your marriage with a perfectly planned party in a truly exclusive, private estate setting and relax knowing that everything is taken care of.
Holywell Hall’s private Church, St Wilfrid’s, is available to you for blessings where you can be joined by up to 60 guests. There are also options locally for religious ceremonies of all denominations, including the famous Normanton church in Rutland.
A ‘ceremony only’ option is available at Holywell Hall. As with all the weddings we host, there are no set ‘packages’. Instead, you’re able to choose the number of hours that you’re with us, the location of your ceremony and you’re still able to hold your drinks reception here before you leave, if you’d like to.
After drinks, you and your guests can head to your marquee on the croquet lawn outside the Orangery. Built exclusively for you by one of our recommended suppliers, your marquee makes it possible to design and tailor every element of your wedding reception. Our carefully chosen caterer will then serve your guests with a delicious wedding feast, including your own corkage free drinks. After dinner we welcome and encourage you to dance the night away until the early hours.
Length of hire
The house itself remains a private residence however, should you wish to host your ceremony in the stately Grand Hall or Garden Room then we would love to welcome you and your guests indoors for part of your day. The Garden Room, overlooking the Terrace, lake and Church, also doubles up as a wet weather contingency for your drinks reception.
Outside of Holywell Hall, there are numerous accommodation options for your guests. You’ll find details of a selection of recommended hotels on our guest pages and of course, we are always happy to make further recommendations if required.
When you come to visit Holywell Hall, we’ll be pleased to share our list of recommended suppliers with you. This list contains details of carefully chosen wedding professionals who can assist with all elements of your wedding day. We do ask that you select your caterer and marquee provider from our list, as these companies totally understand Holywell Hall and the logistics involved. For all other suppliers, you have total freedom to choose those that best suit your day and we look forward to seeing your plans come together.
We host a limited number of weddings from early May to late September and, as a guideline, prices are from £2,000 +VAT for ceremonies only. For marquee weddings, prices are from £10,000 +VAT for the hire of the gardens, grounds, use of Rose Cottage and the Stables and an on-the-day coordinator. The cost of your wedding marquee is then up to you and we are happy to provide you with recommendations and any guidance that you may need in order to find a marquee that best fits your overall wedding style and budget.
