The Perfect Wedding Venue

Highden Manor Estate - The perfect wedding venue for both your ceremony and reception.

Wedding Venue, Wedding Ceremony, Wedding Reception, Boutique Hotel

Dreams do come true and Highden Manor Estate is your perfect dream wedding venue for both your wedding ceremony and your wedding reception. Yours should be as special and as unique as your love for each other.

Imagine yourself as the bride arriving at our historic boutique hotel resplendent in a vintage car; or after the ceremony you and your new husband arriving at the reception in an elegant horse-drawn carriage driven by a groomsman in top hat and tails. Imagine flower petals strewn all long the wedding aisle, and a photo in the rose gardens overlooking beautiful manicured lawns and landscape.

Whether you choose us for your wedding reception or your wedding ceremony and reception, we guarantee that your celebration of love will be a reflection of you and your vision of perfection. Highden Manor Estate is an experience for all the senses. With its Victorian ambiance, breathtaking gardens, fairytale surroundings and attentive yet unobtrusive staff, your special day will be enhanced in ways you will cherish for generations.

The romantic style and grace of the Manor presents an unforgettable setting. The Chapel and the great Victorian entertainment rooms are an ideal backdrop for both ceremony and celebration, while the warmth of Highdens guest rooms await your family and friends. Let us take your dreams and turn them into cherished memories.

At the Manor we understand that your day should be personalised. From your first tour of the Manor's facilities and grounds, to deciding on menus and amenities, you will be assisted in all aspects of planning your special day by our highly professional and dedicated Event Coordinator. You will receive thoughtful answers to your most detailed questions, recommendations for outside services (florists, photographers, musicians, etc.), and suggestions on many other ways to enhance your ceremony and/or reception.
