5 of the Best Wedding Venues in Hampshire

July 1, 2020

Venue Guides

I feel so lucky to be a wedding planner in the UK, largely because we are so spoilt with beautiful wedding venues. My couples’ weddings take me all over the country, however I have a particular soft spot for Hampshire weddings. Mainly because it’s the part of the world I grew up in!

Hampshire has so much to offer when it comes to wedding venues. From elegant country houses to exclusive, luxury hotels, there are some incredible places to say ‘I do’. And being only 1-2 hours drive from London, it’s not difficult to see why so many couples choose to get married in Hampshire.

I’ve rounded up some of my favourite wedding venues in the county to help you get inspired for your own Hampshire wedding!

Somerley House

Somerley House is an immaculate stately home on the border of Hampshire and Dorset. The house itself is beautifully grand and will have your guests wowed from the moment they pull up the driveway. Somerley offers multiple options for both your ceremony and reception, with the option to have a marquee for larger celebrations. There’s also on-site accommodation for up to 25 guests, so this stunning country house will be exclusively yours for your entire wedding weekend.

Pylewell Park

Pylewell Park is a relatively new Hampshire wedding venue that offers a completely unique setting to say ‘I do’. Nestled in The New Forest, whilst also offering views over the Solent, Pylewell Park is a country house venue with photo opportunities aplenty. Their unique Pavilion is an amazing, modern reception space. There’s also 10 newly-refurbished (and utterly gorgeous) bedrooms in the main house. Pylewell is quickly becoming one of the most popular wedding venues in Hampshire. And let’s be honest, it’s easy to see why!

Four Seasons Hampshire

Where do I start with Four Seasons Hampshire? Impeccable luxury, endless countryside – and all just an hour from London. Four Seasons Hampshire is such a special venue. From their quintessentially English walled gardens to their stunning ballroom, they offer a multitude of options for your wedding. And with ample accommodation for your guests, incredible dining experiences and an onsite spa, it’s perfect for your whole wedding weekend.

A total hidden gem in the heart of The New Forest, Hale Park is an enchanting country house wedding venue. You’ll be totally sold by their incredible views, iconic facade and stunning architecture. For ceremonies, you have a choice of the church in the grounds or the stately drawing rooms. For larger guest numbers, you can also have a marquee reception in the grounds. Hale Park is uniquely grand and undeniably memorable.
