Our Hertfordshire wedding venue – A very special place to get married

As well as your reception and party, you can also hold your civil ceremony at Redcoats

We have over 30-years experience of 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.

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. To date our largest wedding involved a guest list of 150 (plus a further 50 in the evening), however we have also had receptions for as few as 12.

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.

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 (50 seated + 30 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 50 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.

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 and are here to help.

Come in for an informal chat and we will put a package together for you, a preliminary price and hold the date for you while you decide.

In addition to organising the ceremony, reception, food and drinks, we can help you with many other aspects of your day including

  • Hotel accommodation (have you seen our stunning honeymoon suite?)
  • Wedding cake
  • Flower arrangements and balloons
  • Live music / DJ
  • Photographer and/or videographer
  • Toastmaster

Costs

Redcoats weddings are so individual that it is difficult to provide a price until we have discussed your requirements. However, to give you some idea, a 40 person wedding including ceremony, canapés & bucks fizz, 3-course wedding breakfast, wine and a champagne toast would cost approximately £3,200 (or £80 per person).

If you would like any additional information, or would like to see the house and gardens, please arrange an appointment so we can have an informal chat over a cup of coffee. Call us on 01438 729500 and ask to speak to Liz Storer.
