A very special place to get married!
We have over 30-years experience in planning and managing weddings at this Hertfordshire wedding venue. We use this expertise to provide you with a bespoke service and ensure an unforgettable day.
As well as your reception and party, you can also hold your civil ceremony at Redcoats.
So, whether you wish for an intimate dinner or a full day marquee event with exclusive use of the house and gardens, Redcoats could be the place for you.
The house and gardens are a stunning backdrop for your photographs, during which our staff can serve your guests with drinks and delicious home-made canapés.
We can seat up to 60 guests in our Conservatory, however can extend that to 90 guests with a gazebo extension.
Registered for civil wedding ceremonies
We can accommodate up to 80 guests for your ceremony in the largest of our three designated rooms:
The Conservatory – can hold up to 80 guests for the ceremony (60 seated + 20 standing)
The Victorian Room – can seat up to 24 people
The Oak Room – can seat up to 14 people
The ceremony is conducted by the local registrar. The Stevenage register office has to be contacted prior to finalising your date, details below.

Picturesque Setting for a Marquee
If you are planning to invite more than 90 guests and do not wish to spread your party across more than one room, the solution is a marquee on the lawn.
Whilst we understand this is an additional cost, holding your wedding in our beautiful garden is truly wonderful. Your table decorations, flower arrangements and other personal touches will be perfectly complimented by the white drapes, bunting and ‘starlit‘ ceiling above the dance floor.
The additional space afforded by a marquee also gives you the opportunity to invite a few more guests along to the evening reception. Adding in a live band and even a fireworks display will ensure that your reception is the event of the year.
NOTE: Due to the loss of a large chestnut tree last December, please note that we are currently re-designing the lawn area adjacent to the conservatory and increasing the size of the current patio. This will allow us to have a 100+ guests marquee with direct covered access to and from the conservatory and combine the benefits of a larger party with yet better access to the garden and to the house. Watch this space!
The Wedding Breakfast
Our restaurant is well known for producing fantastic food all year round – weddings are no exception.
Come and talk to us as we will design a menu to suit you and your guests (and really get the taste-buds tingling!). If a set menu is not for you, we can offer a full gourmet buffet for your guests to choose from. In this scenario your guests will all be seated and have their starter and a choice of puddings served to them at the table. They would be a selection of hot and cold dishes from which your guests would choose their main course.
We are here to help
We appreciate how much there is to do when organising a wedding but we are here to help!
In addition to the ceremony, reception and food & drinks, we can also help you with many other aspects of your day including:
Hotel accommodation including our stunning honeymoon suite
Flower arrangements and balloons
Live music / DJ
Photographer and/or videographer
So, come in for an informal chat over a cup of tea or coffee, take a look around the house and gardens and tell us all about your BIG DAY. We will then put a package together for you, with an initial cost estimate and even hold the date for you while you decide.
