Licensed for civil marriage and partnership ceremonies for up to 170 guests, couples can choose to exchange vows in a number of breathtaking locations. The most popular choice is on the magnificent sweeping staircase overlooking the Grand Hall, however, if the sun is shining, using the South Terrace as your stage is a magical option as you can take advantage of the beautiful views to our private gardens. The Victorian Fernery is another lovely venue offering a more intimate feel for smaller weddings. The wedding ceremony, conducted by Dacorum Registrars, can be tailored to suit your special day. We are also able to offer Anglian blessings in our Chapel.
Ashridge House has beautiful heritage function spaces perfect for each element of your wedding, meaning that your guests will be continually wowed by their spectacular surroundings. Every room has its own distinct personality from the palatial marble fireplaces and opulent gold leaf adorned ceilings of the Lady Marian Alford Room to the original Austrian wood panelling of the Wyatt Room. All function spaces interconnect so your guests can move easily between the rooms creating a natural flow to your day.
