One thing we hear time and again from our couples is that their wedding day flies by too quickly.

Our stunning stately home wedding venue, near Loughborough, can be exclusively yours from Friday to Sunday, giving you the freedom, space and time to throw your dream wedding celebration. Surrounded by acres of Leicestershire countryside, Prestwold Hall is the perfect wedding venue for memories to be made.

The welcome dinner

While a rehearsal dinner is traditional for many weddings in America, it’s not so common in the UK. Throwing a welcome dinner for your friends and family, so they can get to know each other or catch up before your big day, sounds like a fantastic idea to us – and a wonderful way to extend those wedding celebrations a little longer. At Prestwold Hall, as part of our weekend-long wedding package, we’ll provide a relaxed and informal dinner for your wedding party the night before the main event. Our incredible head chef and team will work with you to create a menu that helps set the tone for your celebration.
