Weddings

With its far reaching views, beautiful gardens and elegant interiors, Broadfield is one of the most special wedding venues in Herefordshire. Broadfield is an exclusive use venue which can be hired for one night, two nights or more to host your celebrations.

Your ceremony

Couples looking for an idyllic place to marry have several options.

For larger, outdoor ceremonies, couples can marry in our beautiful fold yard, magical woodland, on the sun-filled lawns or even in our apple orchard. Weddings can be entirely open air, or in many areas couples can choose to have a canopy, decorated beautifully with fairy lights. Ceremonies outside can be for numbers up to around 170, with the ability to move guests into their marquee or tipi in event of bad weather.

For smaller ceremonies, anywhere in our stunning grounds is perfect, including our rose garden or even amongst the wild flowers. Or for indoor ceremonies, Broadfield has two beautiful rooms within the house. Our drawing room can hold up to 60 guests and has a full length bay window with views out onto the David Austin rose garden; our inner hall can host up to 50 guests and is framed by a huge, elegant stone fireplace – both will make incredible back drops for your big day.

Alternatively, you may wish to marry elsewhere and hold your reception at Broadfield.  Whatever you choose to do, Broadfield is completely yours and each wedding is completely different. We will work with you to create a day that is totally bespoke to you as a couple.

Your drinks reception and wedding breakfast

A favourite spot for the drinks reception is often Broadfield’s large south facing terrace, which leads down into the rose garden and the grounds beyond. Or, if the weather is not so kind, the house’s inner and outer halls work wonderfully – and should the weather call for it, the open log fires can be lit to lend to the grand but cosy atmosphere.

Broadfield has a range of options for your wedding breakfast and evening reception too. For larger wedding breakfasts and evening receptions a tipi or marquee on Broadfield’s lawns or in our fold yard is wonderful. Whether summer or winter, a tipi or marquee lets you enjoy the incredible views and country wedding style, while being inside a beautiful space decorated exactly as you’d like. In spring and summer you can take the sides up letting the sun stream in, while in winter fairy lights make it magical (while heaters and indoor firepits keep you warm!).

For weddings of up to around 75 people, the low beamed upper barn is a great space to dine, whether on long, informal trestles or on lovely round tables with crisp linen. For smaller weddings of around 50, Broadfield’s dining room can be used for your wedding breakfast, enabling you to enjoy all that a country house wedding has to offer. In summer, throw the huge bay windows open  and, in winter, enjoy the cosy log fire.

Your evening reception and outside

Our spacious Broadfield bar is included in your hire of the venue, or we are able to serve drinks from a bar inside your tipi or marquee if you’d prefer. The bar is also the perfect spot for your evening reception for smaller weddings. For larger weddings (over 50 guests), a tipi or marquee is the place to dance the night away.

Your guests will of course be able to use Broadfield’s gardens as they wish, taking a stroll through our quintessential kitchen garden, playing croquet on the charming lawns or stopping for pictures in the beautiful rose garden. And the outside celebrations don’t stop as the sun goes down – guests can sit by the firepits, toast marshmallows and enjoy the tail end of the most magical day.

Your food

For your wedding breakfast, our carefully selected local Herefordshire caterers will create delicious food for your big day, whether it be a formal three course menu, a bespoke sharing experience, a relaxed barbeque or anything in between. But of course, we want you to have the food that suits your day, so if you would like to use your own choice of caterers, please just let us know.

As mentioned above, the bar at Broadfield will also be available to your guests on your big day, stocking a considered selection of wines, beers, ciders and spirits, many of which are local to Broadfield.

The bridal suite bedroom

Your stay

Broadfield is available to hire for one night, two nights or more. The house has eight delightful bedrooms for the close wedding party to stay in comfortable and elegant surroundings. One of these bedrooms is a stunning bridal suite, complete with wood paneled master bedroom, elegant modern bathroom, and a dressing room, perfect for the bride and her hens to get ready in. If you would like, this dressing room can be converted into a ninth bedroom. We can provide delicious, locally sourced food to your house guests for the duration of your stay, or you can self cater, but either way your guests will have all the home comforts you would expect.

We are able to add in up to four extra put up beds, with maximum numbers of 22 house guests. We also have cots available in addition to this.
