Situated in the Hampshire countryside, near the village of Steventon where Jane Austen once lived, Oakley Hall is a luxury manor house hotel that boasts a range of outstanding wedding venue facilities. With a stunning Georgian red brick façade, the building has a rich history dating back to 1795, and underwent a multi-million pound renovation a few years ago to restore it to its full potential.
Oakley Hall boasts a wealth of event spaces, eight of which are fully licensed to hold wedding ceremonies so you’re sure to find the perfect fit. Whether you’ve always dreamed of a grand outdoor wedding, or a more intimate celebration in a beautiful room, there is a suitable choice for you. The Woodland Pavilion is ideal for summer weddings with a large capacity of up to 160 guests. Say ‘I do’ underneath a stunning oak arch against the North Hampshire countryside backdrop - a picture perfect setting. Inside the manor, there are a variety of ornately decorated rooms with varying capacities. For example, the Library, with its Georgian fireplace, glittering chandelier and rows of mahogany bookshelves, makes a charming option for parties of up to 84 people.
Post-ceremony, a Champagne and canape reception can be held indoors or outdoors depending on the weather, with options like the Garden Pavillion including top of the line AV facilities, a private bar and terrace, and a capacity of up to 350 guests. If you are considering inviting all your friends and family, consider exclusive hire for the whole day and enjoy private use of all its spaces, including 300 acres of grounds and 50 bedrooms for your guests.
There is a range of packages to peruse depending on your budget and taste, including everything from a three course wedding breakfast, to a bridal suite and dedicated wedding coordinator. Tailored weddings are also on offer should you have something specific in mind.
