Weddings


If you would like a brochure and prices or if you wish to arrange to have a look round, please email enquiries@avingtonpark.co.uk or call us on 01962 779260.  It would be really helpful to know roughly how many guests you are planning for and when you are thinking of holding your wedding.

From the grandest wedding to a small intimate gathering, Avington Park provides a stunning setting for your wedding or reception. This beautiful and imposing family home has been granted a licence to hold civil wedding ceremonies, enabling the bride and bridegroom to enjoy their wedding and reception at the same idyllic venue. At Avington we only offer exclusive use, so it really is yours for the day.

Approach through wrought iron gates, down the lime tree avenue alongside the River Itchen and sweep round to the elegant façade. Guests may be greeted in the magnificently painted hall, where in winter, log fires will offer a warm welcome. In summer, extensive lawns provide a wonderful setting for a drinks reception before sitting down to a sumptuous wedding breakfast in the library.

The library can hold 175 guests for a drinks reception or 100 for a silver service wedding breakfast. Larger wedding parties may be accommodated in a marquee adjoining the library.

This glorious venue provides unique opportunities for photographs both inside and out – a photographer’s dream!

 

 

Testimonials

 

We just wanted to drop you a note to say how much we loved our wedding day back in July at Avington Park.  It really was a dream venue that I have known since I was a little girl, which made it even more special.  It was a shame that we were unable to make the most of the gardens due to the torrential rain!  But your beautiful reception rooms inside meant that the ebent carried on seamlessly regardless!  Zoe and Nick   September 2017

The venue was absolutely beautiful with a superb ambience for the wedding.   Andrea and Mark

Incredible wedding venue

Planning our wedding over 16 months would have been much more stressfull and difficult if it hadn’t been for the great job Avington.  The day went perfectly.  We will be looking for an excuse to book another event here in the future. 

It is difficult to summarise in a few sentences how thankful we are to all of you for making our wedding day run so seamlessly. All our guests enjoyed being at Avington. We had an incredible day which was very relaxed and ran smoothly. We will have very fond memories and Avington provided the perfect surroundings. Tahira and Barrie
