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!

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!
Now, we know that Parkfields is the perfect setting for all types of Wedding celebrations in Herefordshire from intimate midweek family celebrations to a full on traditional affair. However, believe it or not, there are some common misconceptions about Parkfields Country House Wedding Venue and I’m here to explain why they are simply not true!
1) “Wow, that place looks expensive!!!!”
I know I have pointed this out many times before but Parkfields it only costs £1500.00 for 24 hours Exclusive Use! (some people pay more than that for a cake!)
This is the starting point for your celebrations and then this allows you to build the Wedding Celebration that you want! Just as a quick example if you would like to celebrate with 60 guests at a reception offering prosecco, canapés, a three course meal, wine, toast drinks & evening snacks you would be paying less than £6,000.00!
If you are worried about budget why not get married on a Sunday with your closest family & friends? Or you could of course take up our Winter Wedding Promotion!

2) “Parkfields does not look big enough for our celebrations!”
When considering a Wedding venue in Herefordshire, capacity is a very important consideration. Its probably best to work out a rough guest list and look at venues that suit that number.
We find that ALOT of people perceive Parkfields to be a little on the small side but I can tell you that its simply not true! With seating for up to 90 day guests for a Ceremony & Wedding breakfast we can cater for quite a sizeable celebration. You can always invite more guests for the evening of course!
The Parkfields 11.5 acre estate is made up of 7 different Reception Rooms which is wonderful because it means that your celebrations take place in different areas. Why not take a look at our virtual tour to see it for yourself: https://www.parkfields.co.uk/virtual-tours/
3) “You have to take 12 bedrooms as part of the hire!”
There is a little bit of truth to this one but these bedrooms are not a direct cost to the bridal party, your guests would simply be asked to pay for accommodation as they check out. If you have Exclusive Use of a beautiful, grade 2 listed Wedding Venue in Herefordshire for your Celebrations then you will have a cue of guests wanting to stay!
If you are really worried about not being able to fill 12 bedrooms you could always hire under the Winter Promotion and that way you are not required to take any bedrooms at all!
We know that choosing the perfect Wedding Venue in Herefordshire for you can be quite a challenge. Here at Parkfields we do everything that we can to make sure you have all of the facts before you make that one big decision!
