|Stoke Hall's unique location, landscaped grounds, enchanting secret garden and beautiful interior make it the most stylish civil ceremony and wedding venue in the East Midlands.
Situated in open countryside almost a mile outside the village of East Stoke and approximately four miles from the medieval town of Newark-on-Trent, Stoke Hall is approached by a pleasant country lane and then by a long dramatic drive. Majestic redwoods rise above you and the ancient sweet chestnut is thought to be over four hundred years old.
Arriving at this magnificent Grade II listed building, you enter directly into the Grand Reception Hall with its towering atrium and three hundred and sixty degree cantilevered staircase.
The perfect start to your exclusive wedding ceremony.
Stoke Hall is owned by Bryan and Diane Ansell who will be delighted to arrange your private viewing and accompany you on a tour of the Regency Hall and its gardens.
Civil ceremonies or partnerships for up to 100 guests can take place in the bright and cheerful Orangery flooded with natural sunlight, the Grand Reception Hall with its high glass cupola, the more intimate Lord Bromley Study or the richly decorated Old Library.
All four rooms are licensed for ceremonies and can be adapted to your individual requirements, from casual to more traditionally formal. If you are thinking of a romantic wedding on the stairs, our stairway is perfect for the occasion and for your photography afterwards. Private dressing rooms are also available before the ceremony.
Our fee, for hire of the rooms only, starts at £1,000 for small midweek ceremonies. To discuss this further, contact us with your specific requirements and we will be delighted to make sure that Stoke Hall is the perfect venue for your special day. To see our full venue fees please click here
