I think this picture sums up Faye & Tom’s Wedding at Parkfields perfectly. This Wedding was just packed full of fun and laughter from start to finish!
This amazing pair spent 18 months planning their dream Country House Manor Wedding and here is just a little snippet of what happened.
From hand made table decorations to just the most spectacular Wedding Chevrolet, the individual touches that Faye & Tom had bought in to their celebrations just made the whole weekend so very special.
Here is what the Bride & Groom had to say about their Parkfields experience ” What can we say….Thankyou doesn’t even come close. Parkfields you are the best! You all made it the perfect day that it was! Amy you are an absolute star! You were there for us during the early stages right up to the following day after we became Mr and Mrs Cornwall. You made it so easy, relaxing and of course enjoyable. Nothing never seemed too much to ask for. The rooms for the guests were fab and the food was incredible too! So thank you Parkfields you little, hidden gem. It was an incredible day that will never be forgotten and even more unforgetable because we had our wedding day at Parkfields!!!”
MASSIVE congratulations to Faye & Tom and a huge thank you for choosing to celebrate with us at Parkfields 😀
Evening celebrations at Parkfields are just magical after all, what could be better than taking over an 18th Century Manor for the ultimate house party!
Evening celebrations can unfortunately drop down the list of priorities when planning a Wedding. Although the Wedding Ceremony is the pinnacle of any celebrations, and rightly so, sometimes the evening reception can sometimes be forgotten.
If you have a set list of guests that you are inviting to your evening celebrations why not make things more interesting for them. Consider hiring some casino tables to set up in the Garden room, having you speeches and toast with your evening food or save a wedding ritual such as the first dance or cake cutting for your evening guests to see.
Parkfields is full of versatile spaces for you to use for your evening party, The decking and gardens where you’ll mingle with friends and family while enjoying some of chef’s delicious homage snack foods. Then you have the Lounge, central to the main house an ideal space for catching up with guests and taking a moment to relax. The adjacent Castlebrook room is where you’ll find the heart and soul of the party. Boasting a dance floor with unraveled countryside views, we cannot think of a better place to celebrate!
So, you’ve found your perfect Wedding Venue in Herefordshire. Your family and friends are coming from far and wide to be a part of your special day and you want to show off the best that Herefordshire has to offer. Famous for its picturesque countryside, quaint market towns and world famous cider, it is understandable why Herefordshire is a Destination Wedding location in the UK.
As more and more couples opt for a Wedding Weekend we have put together some ideas to make sure that you really make the most of your Wedding in Herefordshire. There are so many amazing places to choose from,
Situated less than 4 miles from Parkfields, Ross is a charming, historic market town with plenty of character. This quaint town has all of the modern amenities you could hope for, whilst maintaining a laid back atmosphere that truly reflects the Herefordshire lifestyle. Ross-on-Wye has been recognised as the original birthplace of tourism and to this day it is packed full of historical buildings, tea shops and country style pubs.
If you’re looking for high street shops, good quality restaurants set amongst a warm and friendly atmosphere, then look no further than the town of Monmouth, just over the border in South Wales. Just a short, 10-minute drive from Parkfields, Monmouth is a firm favourite with visitors and locals alike. Perhaps best known as the birthplace of Henry V, Monmouth boasts a whole host of historical sites, people and buildings from the Nelson Garden to The Town Hall.
If your dream Wedding Weekend in Herefordshire wouldn’t be complete without a stroll through some of the most dramatic countryside views in the world then you are in luck. Parkfields Country House has the advantage of being situated in the Wye Valley.

Entertain clients, host a team-building event or reward staff with an exceptional day that will excite, challenge and leave a lasting memory with every guest – Land Rover Experience Eastnor offers something a bit different to your normal corporate away day. So, when Julie & Simon were offered the opportunity to take a test drive they jumped at the chance! (plus, I was quite keen to get them both from under my feet for the afternoon!)
Simon made the most of the opportunity by taking to the wheel for this ultimate off roading experience. Julie on the other hand made her option of Simon’s driving skills quite apparent. The words “scream if you want to go faster!’ come to mind!
In all seriousness, although they both had a great time, the purpose of the event was to meet the team at Land Rover Eastnor and to check out what they had to offer. Over the past few years Parkfields has specialised in providing the supercar experience to our corporate clients but when Land Rover was thrown in to the mix it was quite a revelation!
Of course, 2016 is a landmark year for Land Rover with the last of the Defender model rolling off the production line. However, the team at Land Rover Eastnor give their guests the opportunity to experience driving this iconic vehicle over the challenging course.
So, if you fancy adding that bit of excitement and adrenaline to your next corporate event at Parkfields why not let us arrange a Land Rover Experience day!
Thanks to Land Rover Eastnor for the invite and for showing us some of the best that Herefordshire has to offer! (And for giving me a lovely quiet afternoon!)
Meet Steph & Dan – This gorgeous couple chose to say “I do” here back in August 2015.
Here is their Parkfields story
What made you choose Parkfields Wedding Venue in Herefordshire?
It was the first venue we viewed, from the literature we knew we would like it but as soon as we turned into the long gravel drive and saw the idyllic building, lawns and pond we were sold! The other factors that made us choose the venue were having exclusive use of the venue and grounds, the reviews we had read from other couples and the attitude and professionalism of the in house wedding planner Amy.
What food did you have?
I can easily remember this as every guest commented on how good the food was. For starter we had Warm Stilton Tart with Red Onion Marmalade & Baby Leaves. Main – Roast Breast of Chicken Wrapped in Herbs & Pancetta with a Wild Mushroom Compote & Roast Jus. Dessert – Warm Chocolate Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream.
What were the top two things you wanted at your wedding?
The two things we would not compromise on were complete Exclusive Use of the Venue and a tranquil setting/location in Herefordshire. Parkfields easily accommodated both of these, especially the location given they offer full use of the whole venue and its 11 acres of grounds.
Any stand out moments or comedy error that happened throughout the day?
When exchanging our vows Stephanie’s ring would not fit so I sucked her finger and it went straight on like a dream!!
Do you have any wedding regrets or would you have done anything differently?
We had 8 children all under the age of 4 so in hindsight I wish we had hired a children’s entertainer for when photographs were being taken, but apart from that it was an amazing day and I would do it every Saturday if I could afford it!
Ok, so you’re recently engaged and probably getting bombarded with shed loads of info from loads of different Wedding Venues in Herefordshire?
Let us make it easy! Here is what Parkfields can offer you:
1) Your own (not so) little pad in the Herefordshire countryside for the whole of your celebrations!

2) Team Parkfields! We have an awesome team here at Parkfields that make everything we do possible! Every person is just as important as the next from the Boss man that mows the stripes in to the croquet lawn, Jackie who is particularly fond of pruning the roses and not forgetting a shout out to Benny, our incredible kitchen porter. (Or dish technician as he prefers to be known!) It is these guys that make Parkfields one of the Best Wedding Venues in Herefordshire!
3) Something a bit different! A unique, magical yet sophisticated Wedding Celebration that is completely focused on you and your magnificent guests!
4) NO PACKAGE WEDDINGS! Who wants the same as the rest anyway? This is your Wedding and YOU deserve to have the celebration that YOU want!
