The Ageas Bowl, Hampshire
Whether you're a cricket fan or not, be prepared to be bowled over by the surroundings, amazing views and luxurious facilities at this landmark venue. Surrounded by the Boundary Golf Lakes Course, it has a countryside feel, while the cricket stadium provides a a sense of space – you can even pose for pictures with the pitch as your backdrop. There's a wealth of wedding facilities at the Hilton, a modern hotel with a great sense of glamour and style. The neutral colours of the hotel complement a range of different themes and the chandeliers in the ballroom add extra wow factor. There's a private area for guests to gather as they arrive and space for up to 150 loved ones to watch you say 'I do'. The perfect place to celebrate, the spacious ballroom has a dancefloor and can be split into three sections to suit the size of your celebration. Exclusive from the rest of the hotel, it can can host up to 450 friends and family for a party to remember.
The Media Centre on the second floor is also licensed for ceremonies for up to 100 loved ones and has floor-to-ceiling windows with great views overlooking the grounds.
At the stadium there's a choice of ground-floor suites inside the Pavilion suitable for ceremonies large or small and space upstairs to celebrate afterwards. The Ageas Suite on the second floor of the Shane Warne stand also has its own dancefloor and private bar and can host up to 160 reception guests. It has an outside balcony as well with expansive views of the grounds; perfect for post-vows drinks.
We love... that couples are given a cricket bat for the guests to sign as a lasting keepsake of their day.
