Tell us about your venue
Hagley Hall is an opulent 18th century Palladian mansion, rich in history and fine architectural features, providing 360° of spectacular views. With its rich Rococo décor, ornate plasterwork and carved stone fireplaces, our State Rooms can only be described as the most splendid and romantic setting for your wedding day.
Home to the Lyttelton family for generations, the house is as much a well-loved family residence, as it is a wedding venue and we wish our guests to feel as relaxed and comfortable within it as we do.
Set in 350 acres of spectacular parkland, the Grade 1 registered Park, designed by George Lyttleton, was in its day considered amongst the greatest of all English Landscaped gardens. Today, three centuries later, the Park and Hall still offers the most picture-perfect and unique settings for your wedding photography.
Do you offer civil marriage and civil partnership ceremonies?
Most definitely, we welcome civil marriages and civil partnerships and have an array of options for our couples to explore.
We offer civil or cultural ceremonies in our grand State Rooms, outdoor marriages within our landscaped gardens and even boast a parish church, set within the grounds, just a few minutes’ walk from the Hall.
