6 reasons why you’ll love Homme House

The Homme House estate, in Herefordshire, offers couples a warm and peaceful setting for their wedding day. There are so many reasons why you’ll love it here – here are our top six…

1. It has a beautiful Summerhouse, licensed for outdoor ceremonies

The 17th Century Summerhouse was restored to its former glory in 2011 and has since played host to many wonderful ceremonies. With breath-taking views of the Malvern Hills and Cotswolds, it’s a really romantic spot for the two of you to tie the knot. Your ceremony can either take place within the walled garden, out in the open air, or under canopy, which is perfect for changeable weather conditions.

2. You’ll have use of the super stylish Bridal Suite

On the morning of your wedding, you’ll be able to get ready with all your bridesmaids in the luxurious Bridal Suite, complete with its own spacious en suite bathroom. There’s also a Bridal Dressing and Drawing Room adjacent to the suite, which you can use for all of your big-day preparations.

As well as the rest of the venue, this room is yours for the day and you can return whenever you wish to freshen up or have a moment together. And at the end of the celebrations, the two of you can retire to the comfortable four-poster bed for your first night together as Mr and Mrs.

5. There are lots of hidden, picturesque places to explore

Homme House is set in five acres of gardens and surrounded by 180 acres of peaceful parkland and woodland – so there’s certainly no shortage of places to explore.

The pretty rose garden and magical walled garden, located by the Summerhouse, are just two of the quaint outdoor features that guests will be able to enjoy.

What’s more, the landscape captures every season beautifully, with carpets of snowdrops and daffodils in spring, right through to the crisp frosts and magical lawns in the winter.
