Hertfordshire has some incredible wedding venues, so if you’re planning to get married in the county, you’ve got plenty of stunning places to choose from. But when it comes down to ways of entertaining your wedding guests, there’s only one choice (in my opinion!)… magic.
I’ve been performing wedding magic in Hertfordshire for a number of years and am a familiar face at many of the venues. I’ve had the chance to get to know the venue staff and the way they work, which means they are confident I’ll do a great job of keeping guests entertained and happy – sometimes giving me preferred supplier status, which is a fantastic form of recommendation.
When it comes to table magic at the formal meals, I work with the venue staff to make sure we can all go about our tasks without getting in each other’s way.
Some of the venues lend themselves to different themes, so if you’re planning a particular style of wedding and need a suitable venue for the theme, here are my recommendations:
Brook Farm in Cuffley is a great venue if you’re planning a rustic-themed wedding in the countryside. It’s set by a lake surrounded by trees and fields, with plenty of space to erect a marquee. And there is a small island area jutting out into the lake which makes a perfect setting for a romantic outdoor ceremony.
Hatfield House was the childhood home of Queen Elizabeth I, so you get all the benefits of a stunning royal setting with beautiful historic buildings and amazing grounds, including an Elizabethan knot garden. It’ll be a majestic day to remember and you’ll get some fantastic photos too!
If you’d like to recreate the style of the jazz era, The Gatsby in Berkhamsted will be the perfect venue. Converted from a cinema built in the golden age of movies, the venue retains original art deco fittings and a magnificent chandelier.
Traditional barns are a hugely popular venue for weddings, and when you visit the 17th century Milling Barn at Bluntswood Hall near Buntingford you can see why. The high ceilings and exposed oak beams provide a stunning setting whether you’re planning a formal or informal day.
Wedding themes will come and go, but a traditional-style wedding will always be a firm favourite. Brocket Hall near Welwyn Garden City provides an impressive venue, as it is a grand stately home set in more than 500 acres of stunning parkland.
