    We got married at Hamswell House during the early May bank holiday and it was such a special day. We had guests travel from Australia and South Africa, so were keen to give them the quintessential English countryside wedding they deserved. The setting certainly did not disappoint and we have had so many compliments on how beautiful the wedding was - from the marquee setup, to the flowers, to the delicious food served by Epic Caterers. The gardens are kept in an immaculate condition and I can imagine look pristine all year round. Rupert, the owner, was incredibly helpful and gives you a list of recommendations and preferred suppliers for the day you start working together. We had excellent interactions with all our suppliers throughout the planning experience. Given Hamswell is not a fully functioning wedding venue (you can't access the house as Rupert lives there), we would highly recommend investing in a wedding planner or coordinator to help manage everything onsite and alleviate any stress on the day. We worked with Lauren Alway and would recommend her services to anyone as she knows the area and suppliers that come with Hamswell well. Overall, we would recommend Hamswell House as wedding venue to anyone in a heartbeat and we will always look back on our wedding day with very fond memories. Thank you so much to Rupert and all the Hamswell suppliers.
