Set within 300 acres of stunning parkland that makes for truly wow-factor wedding photos, Stoke Park hotel is one of the county’s most beautiful settings in which to say ‘I do’. As well as manicured lawns, ancient trees and a glistening lake, there’s the building itself – a gorgeous Palladian mansion complete with grand columns and sumptuous interiors.
The 200-year-old venue is licensed for civil weddings and partnerships, so couples looking for a romantic spot in which to exchange their vows before drinking, dining and dancing the night away can relax knowing that everything is under one roof. Alternatively, couples can choose to marry elsewhere and book Stoke Park for their reception only. The hotel also boasts 49 luxury bedrooms and suites with reduced rates available for your wedding guests, so you won’t have far to travel once your big day is at an end.
There are eight rooms available for hire at Stoke Park, plus the spectacular Fountain Room, which overlooks the terrace, fountains and gardens and is licensed for civil ceremonies. Each room is beautifully decorated, so the one you choose will depend on the size of your wedding party. The hotel’s dedicated wedding co-ordinator will be able to advise should you decide to visit for a tour of the facilities.
The hotel’s kitchen can cater for up to 146 guests and boasts a range of menus to choose from. From canapés to a full three-course meal (with optional sorbet course), evening snacks, a late-night buffet and charming extras such as a sweet trolley, the staff here are well-versed in ensuring you and your guests will be wined and dined in style. The pastry chef can even craft a naked wedding cake for you, so you needn’t worry about getting one delivered.
Various packages are available depending on the size of your party, the season and the extras you want to include. For more information, speak to one of the professional team at Stoke Park.
