Festive weddings at Ringwood Hall Hotel

Festive weddings are one of the most popular choices made by couples who want a wedding full of atmosphere and romance!

Our beautiful grounds look stunning in the snow or on a crisp winter's day whilst our Grade II Manor House really comes to life when decked out in it's winter coat! Invite your guests to fully enjoy your day safe in the knowledge they can reserve a room in the comfort of our hotel rather than brave the elements on their journey home!

Our Winter or Christmas wedding packages offer everything you need for your special day allowing you the chance to relax and enjoy your special moment with your loved ones.

Aerial view of Our Outdoor Wedding Venue

We often talk about the beauty of the grounds at Ringwood Hall Hotel but this aerial video truly shows what a unique setting we offer for outdoor weddings.

This unique wedding video is offered by VuAir as we blogged about in September. The video is created by a small camera being attached to a remote control helicopter that is then operated by a highly skilled pilot, different to our attempts of flying such machines on Christmas Day!

The aerial video is ideal for outdoor civil ceremonies and summer marquee weddings showing your guests enjoying the hotel and grounds. This video shows the Hotel driveway and the font of our Grade II Georgian Manor House before moving onto the gardens featuring our unique Garden Pavilion, licensed for civil ceremonies. It also shows the lawn that is bordered by our mature woodland before leading to our discretely located summer marquee that can entertain a wedding breakfast for up to 70 guests!

View our aerial video to truly appreciate the setting your wedding can have at Ringwood Hall Hotel

Thank You to all who attended our latest bridal event

A massive thank you to all the bridal couples, many with their families and friends, who visited Ringwood Hall Hotel`s bridal open day on Sunday 3rd December. 

The numbers through the door were remarkable, and so were the many happy smiling faces on departure. We are just so pleased that we have been able to help so many brides in finding their perfect venue for their wedding day.

To better showcase the wonderful facilities at Ringwood Hall Hotel, in 2014 we have committed to fourteen 'Wedding Showcase' dates throughout the year, to give our existing brides, plus those looking for a venue in Derbyshire, South Yorkshire or the Peak District even more opportunities to view.
Our Bridal Open Days are very busy, and its not always been possible to have those one to one conversations with our wedding team. Hopefully the more frequent these `Wedding Showcases` are, it will be easier and more relaxing to view Ringwood Hall`s exquisite licensed suites, the fabulous four posters and feature bedrooms, plus when available our summer garden marquee. 
Don`t forget our wedding team offer daytime, evening or weekend appointments to view, so don't hesitate to call our wedding team on 01246 280077, to arrange a showround appointment with our wedding team.

Midweek wedding packages

There is an increasing trend of couples getting married midweek to reduce the cost of their big day.

At Ringwood Hall Hotel we want all our couples to have a magical day to remember and recognise that a midweek wedding may be more suitable for some so have developed our all inclusive midweek package. This package has proved very popular with couples who may be saving money for a house purchase, starting a family or a very expensive honeymoon!

A recent article alluded to only 2 thirds of weddings now taking place on a weekend and also mentioned other measures that couples can take to limit the wedding cost such as making your own cake, bouquet or getting a friend to drive rather than hire cars. However with our all inclusive midweek package you don't need to make any cost cutting measures as you get everything you need to make your day special.

  • 40 x 3 course set Wedding Breakfast menu selected from the `All inclusive` menus
  • 40 x glasses of red, white or rose wine with your wedding breakfast
  • 40 x glasses of welcome Bucks Fizz

We could not have chosen a more perfect place

The view of Sarah from Stafford who left this review on tripadvisor

We chose Ringwood Hall for our wedding and are so glad we did as we could not have chosen a more perfect place. From the moment I arrived with my family the night before the staff were amazing. They looked after everyone so well on the Friday night for our family function and the rooms are all fantastic, everyone was so pleased.
Our wedding was on the Saturday and I want to give Tracey a special thank you as she was brilliant from start to finish, the whole day ran so smoothly, despite the rubbish weather and the staff could not have done more to make our wedding any better. I would recommend Ringwood Hall to anyone thinking about a wedding venue, you will not be disappointed and I’ll definitely be going back to stay again!
We thank Sarah for this review, why not come for yourself and see what a great venue we have at Ringwood Hall Hotel
