Exclusively yours, Wivenhoe House only hosts one wedding a day ensuring you receive exceptional service from the dedicated wedding team.

Ceremony and reception rooms

Offering a choice of settings for your memorable day, you can hold your celebrations in the main house drawing room or Signatures Room. Alternatively, make use of the versatile rooms in the Garden Suite which is set in the contemporary wing. Mix and match to make the most of these three unique and beautiful spaces.

The Traditional Drawing Room
Accommodating up to 80 seated guests, the drawing room is elegantly furnished and features large bay windows overlooking the grounds. The ornate ceiling, romantic chandelier lighting and neutral décor create a warm, inviting ambiance for your memorable day.

Signatures Lounge
Adjacent to the drawing room you find the Signatures Lounge. Traditionally decorated in period style, the room features high ceilings, this intimate setting is ideally suited to more intimate gatherings. Accommodating up to 60 guests for reception drinks or 30 guests for a wedding breakfast.

The Garden Suite
Comprised of three interconnecting rooms, the Garden Suite is the most versatile setting accommodating up to 110 seated guests or 150 reception guests. Because of the movable partition walls, you can use the space in a variety of configurations to suit your needs.
