Wedding Venues in Nottinghamshire – Holme Pierrepont Hall

Nottingham wedding venue - Holme Pierrepont Hall - Pete Henderson Weddings

Holme Pierrepont Hall is a wedding venue I absolutely ADORE! Situated in a secluded 30acre estate just a few minutes from Trent Bridge in Nottingham, it remains a bit of a hidden gem.
The venue can cater for parties with up to 120 guests for both weddings and civil ceremonies, receptions, private parties, dinners and corporate events. The house and gardens are also open to the public for special events on selected dates throughout the year.
As well as assisting at a previous wedding and planning a forthcoming event, I have also provided venue consultancy services to the owners of this stunning exclusive use venue. I’ve also co-ordinated a styled shoot at the house with an incredible team of suppliers.

A Venue Steeped in History

Surrounded by romantic, tranquil gardens and filled with period features, Holme Pierrepont Hall is one of the most historically significant country houses in the East Midlands. It’s the family home of the Brackenbury family, direct descendants of the Pierrepont family who have lived on the site since 1280.

The Grade I listed Tudor manor house on the estate today dates back to 1500, with later additions and alterations having been made since then. The building features some of the earliest brickwork in the county and the grounds are just beautiful. I particularly love the drama of the yew trees in the beautiful East Garden.

There are several notable figures connected with Holme Pierrepont Hall, including Georgina Brackenbury (1865 - 1949), the renowned artist and militant suffragette, and the last Countess Manvers, Marie Louise Pierrepont, a prolific and accomplished artist. Two generations of the Brackenbury family continue to live in the Hall today.

Weddings at Holme Pierrepont Hall

The venue has three rooms available for wedding ceremonies and receptions - each with a very different style and ambience. All three rooms are licensed for wedding and civil partnership ceremonies.

  • The Long Gallery is the largest room, seating up to 120 guests. The space features two medieval stone fireplaces and family portraits adorn the walls.
  • The Ball Room is a light, airy reception room located on the ground floor. Opening onto the East Garden through French doors, it comfortably seats up to 50 guests and is ideal for summer events.
  • The Medieval Lodgings are situated in the oldest part of the hall. Unaltered since 1500, they possess a unique Tudor ambience. The space is perfect for small, intimate weddings and can accommodate up to 40 seated guests. During the winter months, you’ll find cosy log fires burning in these rooms.

The Victorian Bedroom

A popular dressing room for brides and bridesmaids, the venue’s stunning Victorian Bedroom is also available for couples who would like to spend their wedding night at the Hall.

The room features a Victorian four-poster bed made in Nottinghamshire and a bedcover crafted from 19th Century Nottingham lace. There are numerous other antiques in the room including colourful 19th Century china wall plaques, a French bureau dating back to around 1860, and a Hepplewhite tub chair from 1780.

Food & Drink

The venue uses carefully selected caterers for their wedding catering with different chefs offering very different menus to suit a variety of personal tastes and wedding styles. Whether you’re looking for formal fine dining or more casual fare, they’ll be able to curate a menu and wine list to suit.

Holme Pierrepont Hall really is a fabulous Nottinghamshire wedding venue. I can’t wait to return with my clients in 2020.

Until next time,

Happy planning!
