History

Originally built in in 1696, and graded as a fine example of late 17th century architecture, this building was the Manor House of Eggington in central Bedfordshire. Built for a Huguenot from Montauban in France, it was inhabited by a family who famously campaigned for female suffrage. The house was taken by the army in World War Two and used as a recovery home for injured soldiers.

Reviews

  • Amanda - October 2016

    Thank you Suzie and Oliver for the most incredible day we could have wished for. You pulled out all the stops for us and went above and beyond anything we could have imagined, especially with being let down massively by a contractor at the last minute. You really did go the extra mile to make sure our day was just as we wanted and more.

    The venue is beautiful and all of our guests commented on what a wonderful, unique and special place it was! It was like nothing we had seen before, being intimate enough for the most important elements of our day whilst still being big enough to have many different things going on at the same time.

    You've made our day even more special by being so caring, professional and with excellent attention to detail to make sure everything went smoothly. Thank you so much and we will be recommending you to everyone we know!

    This time last year we had just shared the best day of our lives at Eggington House. Suzie, Olivier and the team were amazing from start to finish, we could not have asked for anything more!

    We were married at St. Michael’s Church in Eggington and held our reception a two minute walk away at Eggington House. It was Olivier who suggested getting married at Eggington Church and we are so glad we followed that idea, thank you Olivier! We have some beautiful pictures of our guests making their way from the church to the house. I was able to spend the morning getting ready with my bridesmaids in one of the gorgeous rooms. For someone who is always late, having the ceremony 30 seconds down the lane was a dream!

    Eggington House is the whole package for the most beautiful wedding venue. The house, gardens and petal pole marquee made the perfect, quintessentially British venue which is exactly what we wanted, but the beauty of this venue is that it can be customised to your own taste. You also have access to the venue for the whole weekend, so decorating, adding finishing touches and tidying after the event is not a problem.

    Suzie and Olivier are two of the loveliest people we have met. They were so helpful throughout the process, sharing ideas to make our day even more special. It was a real pleasure working with them and we were sad to say goodbye after the wedding!
