Why Choose Holdenby House for your Northampton wedding?
Built in 1583 by Sir Christopher Hatton, Holdenby was once the largest private home in England. Mostly demolished during the war, the only remaining wing was restored in 1873. Today, Holdenby House features more than 2,000 acres of beautiful landscaping, quaint buildings, and old-fashioned charm that makes for the perfect wedding venue.
Holdenby House’s warm and inviting atmosphere offers a romantic ambience to make your day truly special. From the breath-taking front hall, to the quaint library, and on to the large ballroom, no matter which room you choose to use, your ceremony will be exactly what you’ve always dreamed of. Small wedding parties will find the dining room or library the perfect size while larger ones will delight in the grand ballroom. The house can accommodate up to 108 people in a seated arrangement.
Despite its quiet beauty and classic architecture, Holdenby House is by no means “stuffy.” A few quick changes will turn your small, romantic ceremony venue into a large, party-ready reception for 200. Move the tables from the ballroom to create a large space for dancing and DJing, or if you need even more room, you can rent a marquee. Just a short walk through the beautiful garden, the marquee can accommodate up to 800 of your nearest and dearest friends and family members.
