From the exquisite antique furniture and interiors to the to-die-for food, we like to focus on all the little details that come together to create the ultimate backdrop for the perfect day. Here’s all the inspiration you need on how to throw a luxurious wedding at Prestwold Hall.

A luxurious ceremony setting

Saying your ‘I do’s surrounded by the grandeur of Prestwold Hall’s historic Library creates an effortlessly luxurious wedding style. Create a modern, elegant feel with clear back chairs, foliage dressed chair backs and an aisle lined with twinkling candles. Nothing more is needed to bring a timelessly chic wedding vision to life.

Elegant wedding music

A luxurious wedding at Prestwold Hall deserves the perfect soundtrack. Book a string quarter or harpist to play as your guests wait for your arrival, or as background music to a sophisticated drinks reception.

A chic alfresco wedding

At Prestwold Hall you have the option of having both your ceremony and wedding party outdoors in the idyllic grounds. Add a touch of luxury to proceedings with gold chairs and statement floral displays for exchanging vows under our Georgian gazebo. Once the ceremony is over, we can create a luxe alfresco dining setting, filled with bold blooms and candlelight, for you and your guests.
