Check out Hale Park in Hampshire
Set in the middle of an agricultural estate in a very private corner of the New Forest, couples will approach Hale Park down a long avenue of lime trees. Surrounding the house are the extensive grounds, which feature a small rose garden, topiary, maze, two ponds and many hidden areas to discover.
Exchange vows in the grand Georgian Drawing Rooms, which feature high ceilings, showstopping chandeliers and views over Avon Valley. The whole area can host 120 guests or can be split into three smaller areas if desired. Alternatively, the pillared portico entrance to the front of the
house is another option for ceremonies with 100 people on the lawn opposite. For religious weddings, St. Mary’s Church can accommodate around 90 people. The setting is only a short walk through the gardens and creates a stunning backdrop to photographs.
Around the property, couples will discover picture-perfect spaces for civil ceremonies or celebrant-led weddings with 40 to 100 people – here they can let their imaginations run wild. For festival-style weddings, the enclosed glade through the yew trees is perfect for around 100 loved ones.
Continue the celebrations with 40 to 200 people in the Drawing Rooms or marquee where the lawns are suitable for bands, dining and dancing. Behind, there’s room for catering while still leaving enough space for lawn games, bouncy castles and fire pits outside.
