CRANFORD HALL WEDDINGS
YOUR DAY - MADE PERFECT
Set amidst the stunning gardens and picture-perfect lawns of this traditional Georgian mansion is The Studio, the perfect setting and venue for your event. Still a family home, the Hall has a relaxed and easy going atmosphere. You will find yourself settling into gentle pace and tranquil setting surrounded by fields and horses. It is a perfect place to sip your G&T and watch the sun go down.
We only host a select number of weddings each year and every event is a one off. We believe that your unique style and personality should shine through and your event should be about you, your tastes, your budgets and your style. We can suggest a fantastic range suppliers from caterers to photographers but the choice is ultimately yours. Room decorations, table layout, timings and theming are also up to you and you get all day Friday to make sure your wedding is going to look fantastic. If you need extra time for decorating we can arrange that too.
We are always on hand to assist you in the planning of your day and you will have a dedicated Event Manager who will liaise with your suppliers and happily meet with you as many times as you wish in order to make sure you are completely satisfied with the days events. They are also around on the day to facilitate the smooth running of your day. Keeping an eye on timings, helping suppliers when needed and making sure you and your guests have everything they need, meaning you can relax and enjoy your day.
Whatever the occasion, the beautiful and unique setting of Cranford Hall along with our bespoke, friendly service, is undeniably the perfect venue.
Studio & Brew House
The Studio is a self contained building set in the stunning gardens of Cranford Hall. Over looking fields with grazing horses and the old Church of Cranford St John, the Studio terrace is a beautiful place for your guests to relax with a drink and enjoy the peaceful and tranquil surroundings.
The Studio itself can be designed to suit your tastes whether formal white drapes and linen, vintage tea parties or country style tweed and hessian.
You have access to the building before your event so you are welcome to decorate the room yourself with friends and family if you wish. We will of course be there to help and make sure you have everything you need to achieve the desired result. We also have a number of specialist room designers who can work with you to create an amazing, unique space for your event.
Linked to the Studio is the old Brewhouse. As its name suggests this is where the drinking takes place and where we have our Studio Bar. It is a great place to put those little extras such as sweet carts, post boxes, guest books etc. Complete with log burners and vintage sofas, the room also has a cosy snug which is perfect for those wanting to get away from the noise of a disco and have a good family catch up.
The Studio can accommodate up to 100 guests for a formal sit down meal or more for a relaxed canapé reception or buffet. If you want to invite additional guests for the evening we can comfortably take up to 200.
St Andrews Church
Within the park grounds is the stunning St Andrews Church, simple, peaceful and very old! It has not been in commission for many years but is now available to rent from The Churches Conservation Trust for blessings.
The church dates from the late 12 century and contains 300 years of Robinson family memorials which lay within the church.
For larger parties we allow marquees to be used in the garden at an extra cost. We are on hand to meet your marquee company to do that all-important survey and inspection of the site.
We will then make sure they have plenty of tea and biscuits when they arrive to setup your marquee.
Suppliers & Catering
We have a fantastic range of caterers we can recommend to you, from award winning caterers to pizza ovens and BBQs. Everyone knows what they are doing, they are covid safe, officially registered food businesses and have all the necessary hygiene certificates. By using one of our recommended caterers we can be sure you will receive fantastic service and delicious food. However, we do allow couples to select their own caterers but we will need to check their qualifications and experience if they have not worked with us before.
