Marwell Hall | Wedding Venue
Marwell Hall, a grade I listed hall located in the centre of Marwell Wildlife in Winchester, Hampshire is available to hire as a wedding venue.
And what a wedding venue Marwell Hall is!
Situated at the heart of the Wildlife Park, Marwell Hall stands proud within its generous grounds and provides a dramatic welcome with its large driveway.
Arriving at the venue is something of a highlight in itself as the Park will often provide you with transport in the shape of their land train! So (if you’d like) you can be driven through the zoo grounds, passed smiling and waving on-lookers feeling very special indeed!
There’s nothing quite as special however as the chance to feed some of the zoo’s animals as part of your wedding day schedule! With your family and friends looking on in amazement you can feed your choice of animal, with options including the Giraffe’s and Lemurs (as pictured below!).
As talking points and wedding highlights go, epecially if you love animals, this has got to be right up there! It’s definately a unique benefit for choosing Marwell Hall as your wedding venue! Of course this is totally opitional, you dont have to risk that beautiful wedding dress if you don’t want to… but hey, you don’t get many chances like this!
Marwell Hall is a fully licenced venue to hold civil ceremonies and has a choice of three stunning rooms that can be hired for your wedding, the Seymour Library, The Long Room and the Woodlock Room. This allows them to cater effectively for groups of varying sizes as the rooms have capacities varying from 40 people for smaller intimate weddings up to 80 guests seated for larger functions.
All of the rooms are full of character and brimming with history! There are so many different photographic opportunities both inside and around Marwell Hall, you will be able to have amazing photos no matter what the British weather throws at you!
It is very rumoured that Henry VIII visited Marwell and held a private marriage ceremony at Marwell Hall and the nearby Owslebury Church! So you’ll be in (arguably!) good company if you get married here!
The lawn to the rear of the Mansion House is perfect for a Marquee if you wanted to enjoy drinks and perhaps a BBQ at the end of your special day!
Speaking of food, the quality and sheer variety at Marwell Hall is excellent. A variety of mouth-watering menus are on offer, ranging from the unashamedly basic to exquisite hot courses or buffet style meals.
The venue are happy to organise illustrated talks or a guided tour of Marwell for you and your guests which can be worked into your timings for your special day!
A little friendly competition can also be arranged if you wanted some additional entertainment!
Overall Marwell Hall definately offers plenty of unique options for a wedding venue in Hampshire! As well as being a truly beautiful setting for any wedding, it has character by the bucket load and is sure to be a real hit with friends, family and animal lovers young and old!
