• Simply Strings Trio

Celebrations and Planning Ideas

We work with a number of wedding specialist partners on a regular basis and they are familiar with us all here at Hodsock Priory. You may choose to use specialists of your own but below are our favourite suppliers, as used within our special wedding packages, for your inspiration or ideas.

Music and Entertainment

Nothing suits our country house better than simple strings and live music. They complement the day and bring an ambience to the house. If it’s sophisticated and elegant you want; the trio from Yorkshire’s Simply Strings have over 30 years of experience.

All good weddings come to an end and it’s usually with a good old knees-up in The Pavilion. Whether you want to create a retro music hall, a relaxing jazz bar, swinging Big Band, or just be a disco diva for the night, our House DJs Xclusive Disco and Vibe Music are the best in the local business.

They can provide projection screens, twinkly backdrops and mood lighting to enhance the atmosphere of your Hodsock wedding and help you celebrate in musical style.
