Fancy an overnight stay for two at Luton Hoo? Now is your chance to win this fabulous prize!
Steeped in romance, glamour and history – and the location for films such as Four Weddings and a Funeral – Luton Hoo is an outstanding destination for weddings and receptions. On the border of Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire, nestled in 1,065 acres of rolling parkland, manicured lawns and fragrant gardens, and with a choice of unique venues that cater for weddings large and small, it has all the ingredients to ensure you have the best day of your life.
The 18th century Mansion House is one of the most impressive wedding venues in the region. Set at the end of a sweeping drive, it combines the grandeur of a bygone era with the luxurious facilities of a modern five-star hotel. Luton Hoo was originally built as a magnificent private house and has a romantic royal pedigree. Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh celebrated their wedding anniversaries at Luton Hoo in the early years of their marriage and some of the lavish rooms they stayed in now form part of the Queen’s Suite.
Whether it’s an intimate gathering for family and friends or a grand wedding party for 290 guests, there are settings to suit every type of celebration. These include an ornate former Orthodox Russian chapel and the Grinling Gibbons room, with wood carvings by the famous English sculptor. Those seeking a unique and tranquil setting for their wedding celebration will be enchanted by the beauty of Warren Weir. Tucked away within Luton Hoo Hotel’s 1,065-acre English countryside estate, it offers guests a feeling of total seclusion and its village style with panoramic views over the lake and woodlands beyond provide a wealth of stunning photographic backdrops.
This idyllic hideaway includes 84 bedrooms and suites as well as other amenities like an indoor swimming pool and snooker room, meaning it is a complete wedding destination. From sumptuous family dinners to lavish banquets, the specially prepared wedding menus are sure to be enjoyed by all. The choice of starters include Portland lobster bisque with tiger prawn won tons and confit duck and wild mushroom wrapped in Savoy cabbage with apple and cider reduction. Main course choices include herb crusted fillet of Scottish salmon with char grilled courgette, lemon and grain mustard potatoes and carrot purée, and baby spinach and ricotta pithivier with cherry vine tomato and roast pumpkin sauce. To finish a range of delicious desserts include caramelised lemon and lime tart with passion fruit coulis and clotted cream ice cream, and bitter chocolate and praline truffle torte with compote of orange and orange cream sauce.
With award-winning service and a dedicated team, every detail throughout the planning is in hand. In addition to bespoke and tailor-made weddings, The Mansion House and Warren Weir at Luton Hoo offer a range of inclusive packages covering everything needed for a truly memorable day. They include a choice of ceremony room, fresh flower arrangements, the services of a toastmaster, red carpet champagne reception, three-course wedding breakfast with wine, champagne for the toast, a suite for the bride and groom’s wedding night and much more.
