About Sopwell House

Once the private residence of Lord Mountbatten, Sopwell House’s grand surrounds make for the perfect place to say ‘I do’ in style.

This sprawling Georgian country manor provides a stunning setting for wedding ceremonies and receptions, with fully flexible setups and some of the prettiest photo opportunities in the area. The 12-acre grounds feel as though they might have been purpose built for weddings, with a walled garden, a pretty metalwork gazebo and sweeping lawns all adding to the romantic feel. The obliging team are on-hand through your planning process to ensure you find the perfect spot to say your vows, if you’d like to get married on site.

Later in the day you’ll have your pick of the hotel’s function suites, which lead out on to the terraced garden – the ideal place for pre-dinner drinks and canapes. The largest of the spaces, the St Alban Suite, can accommodate up to 300 guests and comes complete with its own bar, foyer and cloakroom for the ultimate in exclusivity.

Wedding breakfasts are handled on a bespoke basis, and you’ll be able to pick the perfect menu from a selection of some of the kitchen’s most popular dishes. The team here also have existing relationships with Asian and Kosher suppliers, should dietary or religious requirements need to be catered to. Additionally, the hotel can cater for events around your wedding – from afternoon teas through to breakfasts. All couples getting married at Sopwell house are treated to a complimentary tasting too, which ensures you know exactly what your guests will be feasting on come your big day.

The additional bonus of getting married at Sopwell House is that it comes with the possibility of using one or more of 128 rooms and suites.

They’re always happy to add those little extra details that ensure guests have an amazing experience with them.

Testimonials For Sopwell House

Beautiful HotelFEBRUARY, 2022

Wow! I love this beautiful hotel and the service is truly outstanding. We stayed in the Jasmine suite for our wedding which is gorgeous with a private hot tub. The staff were incredible and nothing was too much trouble, they also went above and beyond to make our wedding night extra special. A big thank you to Jenny who was extra helpful in sorting out rooms for our guests in the run up to the wedding. I can't wait to go back!


Couldn’t have wished for anything moreSEPTEMBER, 2021

Can’t praise Sopwell enough!!! We had our big fat Greek wedding at Sopwell House on the 15th September and we couldn’t have wished for anything more. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening - special thanks to Ludovic, Albino and Jessica for ensuring everything ran smoothly on the big day. Everyone has been so impressed with the food (best they’ve had at a wedding) super speedy service and going that extra mile!! We’ll be coming back to our special venue soon thank you all we are still buzzing.

Truly luxurious and gorgeousAUGUST, 2020

First of all, your venue Sopwell House is beautiful and we're really really happy we had our celebrations there. The food, the location, the decor, the accommodation - everything was truly luxurious and gorgeous. We are very thankful for all the team members' hard work. But above all, the service and support provided by Sonya Solanki was just exceptional. We came to Sonya with an impossible task - helping us arrange a covid wedding in 30 days. I appreciate you are busy, but please take a moment to acknowledge our appreciation and thanks to Sonya and the team...

A well delivered intimate wedding eventAUGUST, 2020

Thank you so much for facilitating a 1st rate wedding day for us at Sopwell House. It will always  be a special memory for Susie and I and our family. The challenges for all of us to hold any wedding ceremony and lunch were considerable during this crazy Covid time. Sopwell had just opened again ,but had done a much better job than the Grove in refurbishing your hotel and maintaining  your lovely gardens. And you had to contend with a flood just before our big day!  Nonetheless you all delivered as a team, with a special thank you to you, Gopi/team  and Ludovic on the day. A well delivered intimate wedding event.
