The Elvetham is a magnificent gothic house in Hampshire that provides couples with a truly enchanting place to tie the knot. Boasting a striking red brick exterior, wonderfully traditional ceremony and reception rooms, and immaculate grounds, it's an idyllic setting and a highly sought-after wedding venue. With so much to offer brides and grooms all year round, we take a closer look at what makes The Elvetham special in each season.
Spring is a beautiful time of year at The Elvetham, and the 35 acres of grounds that surround the stunning country house burst into life. New buds and leaves start to cover the trees that are dotted throughout the lawns, while new blooms in the flower beds provide a wealth of colour in the gardens. The house is full of delightful rooms and spaces to enjoy too, should the weather take a turn for the worse, so you'll able to have an unforgettable wedding day, inside and out!
With the gardens and surrounding countryside in full bloom, The Elvetham makes a picturesque spot to relax in and enjoy the best that this season has to offer. You can even tie the knot al fresco in the idyllic Summer House, while your guests watch from the sunken garden. Enjoy mingling and a drinks reception on the lawn, before making the most of the sun by holding your wedding breakfast in the light-filled Conservatory or Marquee.
Autumn is a stunning time of year, full of changing colours and falling leaves. A wedding ceremony held in either The Library or The Oak Room offers couples a stunning setting of luxury and grandeur that is a warm and welcoming location for you and your guests to enjoy. If you get the chance, make the most of the delightful photo opportunities out in the grounds, before beginning the festivities with your nearest and dearest.
Crisp winter days make this stunning venue wonderfully atmospheric, which looks especially beautiful with a sprinkling of snow. Inside the house, the roaring log fires create a warm and cosy space to enjoy with your guests, while the choice of ceremony room ensures that you can have the perfect wedding to suit you. We particularly love the intimate Morning Room with its grand fireplace and The Winter Conservatory, which boasts a twinkling starlit sky and magical Christmas decorations in the festive season.
These are just a few of the reasons why we think you'll love The Elvetham for a wedding at any time of the year. To see this magnificent country house wedding venue for yourself, call 01252 847293 to arrange a visit, or visit their website.
