A Warm Welcome from George Buchanan
“Hodsock will be exclusively yours, we only host one wedding at a time. We guarantee that it’ll just be you and your friends and family. It’s important to us that everyone feels welcome, can relax and have fun.
We’ve received awards for our service and the relaxed elegance of our venue. We’re always efficient and friendly, here to help you, reassure you, guide you and advise you through the planning of your wedding. We’ll be there on the day to manage your suppliers and make sure everything runs according to plan so you can be worry-free on the day.
Arrange a personal viewing to come and see our unique Tudor Gatehouse and explore the gardens. They make for dramatic, sensational photography at any time of year. You can wander through the House, imagine your celebrations taking place, and take a peek at the Bridal Suite where you’ll get ready and stay for the night of your wedding. We’ll look forward to welcoming you to our family home.”
– George Buchanan
Ceremonies take place in The Panelled Hall, in front of the fireplace with amazing views of the Gatehouse and the North Lawn. The atmospheric room is packed with grandeur, overlooked by portraits of ancestors symbolising the coming together of two families.
The Pavilion is the focal point of the house. This impressive room can hold 120 for a ceremonial dinner and 250 for your reception party. It is very simple yet elegant, with neutral walls and deep blue accents. A stunning room dressed with flowers and silverware, or a blank canvas for a themed wedding day.
