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.
Couples looking for an idyllic place to marry have several options.
For larger ceremonies, our fold yard is a lovely outdoor space and can be framed under a canopy or in a bespoke tented structure to create a magical inside/outside setting for your wedding, whatever the season. The fold yard can cater for anything from a small gathering up to over 150 guests, with the wedding ceremony taking place under the loggia. For indoor weddings of up to 100 people, our low beamed upper barn is also available and can be bedecked in fairy lights and foliage to make a magical space.
For smaller ceremonies, Broadfield has two beautiful rooms within the house, which can host up to 60 guests. Our drawing room has a full length bay window with views out onto the David Austin rose garden, and our inner hall is framed by a huge, elegant stone fireplace, making both incredible back drops for your big day. Or we also have a lovely summer house in our gardens for intimate ceremonies or as a place to sign the register after an outdoor service.
Of course, many couples choose to have a ceremony outdoors in Broadfield’s stunning grounds, whether that be in our rose garden, our woods, our south facing lawns, our orchard or elsewhere. Ceremonies outside can be for numbers up to around 250, with the ability to move guests into a marquee, a tipi or under a canopy in case of bad weather.
Alternatively, you may wish to marry elsewhere and hold your reception at Broadfield. Whatever you choose to do, Broadfield is completely yours.
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 works so well, enabling you to 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 reception rooms can be used for your wedding breakfast and evening reception, enabling you to enjoy all that a country house wedding has to offer. In summer, throw the huge bay windows open in the wood panelled dining room and, in winter, enjoy the log fires throughout Broadfield’s dining and reception rooms.
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, the 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, whether taking a stroll through our quintessential kitchen garden, playing croquet on the charming lawns or stopping for pictures in the beautiful rose garden, it’s all there for them to enjoy. 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.
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. If you have special requirements and would like to use your own 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.
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.
“From start to finish, everything about Broadfield was amazing. Frances and Alex were so incredibly helpful throughout Covid and the multiple postponements we had to cope with. The venue itself is glorious. We couldn’t have asked for more to make our wedding perfect. We’d do it all again in a heartbeat. Perfectly perfect!”
Suzy and Dan, June 2021
“Broadfield is the most idyllic venue and we couldn’t have chosen a more perfect place to host our wedding.
“It’s grand and outstandingly beautiful whilst homely and welcoming at the same time. The house inside is beautifully decorated, just stunning and the grounds are equally stunning with breathtaking views.
“Fran and Alex were amazing throughout, from the first meeting to the day we checked out, nothing was missed, they thought of everything and nothing was ever too much trouble. They were so organised but so relaxed at the same time. They gave us a wedding better than we ever could have dreamed which was a pleasure to plan.
“Thank you so much Broadfield, you really are the perfect wedding venue.”
Charlotte and Will, May 2021
“After quite a stressful wedding-planning experience, involving plenty of date changes and ultimately needing to move venue, we were absolutely over the moon to find Broadfield Court!
“This wedding venue is absolutely beautiful! The Mother of the Bride thought that she had accidentally turned up to the wrong place, assuming that she had arrived at a National Trust site rather than our wedding venue! Not only was Broadfield itself fantastic, but Helen and the staff were incredibly welcoming and supported us throughout the whole process.
“We were able to work with Helen to really personalise our day and were so pleased that our closest family were able to stay with us in the stunning house both the night before, and the night of, the big day. All our guests were thoroughly impressed and we are so grateful that Broadfield gave us such a magical experience.”
