Weddings in the Priory
Hodsock Priory’s five licensed wedding ceremony rooms offer a choice of traditional and modern décor for a truly unique wedding venue.
For those looking for a sense of history and tradition, the Panelled Hall offers oak timber walls and spectacular family portraits, creating an atmosphere of opulence.
Couples looking for a more contemporary wedding feel may prefer the elegant yet understated Buchanan Hall, or the spacious Pavilion, with its impressive views of the garden and Italian Terrace.
We also offer two licensed rooms for smaller wedding ceremonies, The Ante Room and Library, both providing inviting, versatile spaces that add grandeur to even the most intimate wedding.
Weddings in the garden
Hodsock Priory’s beautiful gardens were designed by Lady Buchanan in 1967, and are lovingly tended year round by the Estate’s dedicated groundskeepers.
The Georgian-style gazebo is our licensed outdoor venue for civil wedding ceremonies, presenting an elegant backdrop of traditional landscape design overlooking acres of Nottinghamshire countryside.
With so many beautiful spaces available, we also welcome celebrant-led wedding ceremonies, which can take place anywhere in our garden. Declare your love under the Tudor Gatehouse, in the woodlands surrounded by bluebells, or wherever else feels right to you.
Hodsock Priory country house is the ideal choice to celebrate with your loved ones following a religious wedding ceremony at your local church.
The venue is easily accessible from all of the surrounding counties, and just two miles away from the Church of St Mary and St Martin in Blyth. We would love nothing more than to welcome newlyweds and their guests to eat, drink and dance the night away at our exclusive wedding venue.
Whichever location you choose for your wedding ceremony, you can enjoy a beautifully elegant reception at Hodsock Priory.
