Hedsor House at a Glance

  • The property’s architecture is quintessentially English and brimming with sophisticated design characteristics. It boasts of perfectly symmetrical features, imposing grey brick walls and intricate cornices throughout the property. Imagine yourself on the set of Downton Abbey (which unsurprisingly used Hedsor House as one of its filming locations).
  • The Georgian house has several grand suites with sizeable windows that allow natural light to enter the rooms. It lends itself well to natural light photography, making you look your absolute best in all your wedding photos.

Luxury and Comfort at Your Fingertips

  • Its proximity to London means that your guests will find it easy to look for accommodation and also arrange transportation. Besides, they can even fit a side trip to central London to visit the queen! It’s perfect not just for your dream UK destination wedding but also for everyone’s European vacation.
  • Hedsor House is only 300 meters from St Nicholas’ Church which makes having a religious ceremony a breeze. Opting for a non-sectarian celebration won’t be a problem. This Georgian house can also easily accommodate civil ceremonies and blessings within its premises.
