With its exclusive use Horsley Towers can be enjoyed solely by the wedding party.

A complimentary bridal suite is included, and the quotation for each wedding is formulated in accordance with the prospective couple's wishes.

History

Dating back to 1820, the mansion was originally designed in a fantasised Gothic style by Charles Barry - the same architect who created the Houses of Parliament. Inheriting his family's ancestral home, the younger Lord Lovelace wanted to develop an impressive property to showcase his immense wealth, so he refurbished Horsley Towers accordingly in the height of fashion.

Among his developments were the cloisters, which served as a modern-day conservatory and were embellished with colourful décor and carvings in Gothic Revival style. Time-worn rumour tells of a secret tunnel running from underneath the cloisters to the local inn. No such tunnel has yet been found - however, in this enigmatic building a discovery wouldn't be over-surprising!

Facilities

Great Hall

Banqueting has always been a symbol of extreme wealth, and the fortune of the Lovelace family is amply demonstrated in the grand Great Hall. The 150 coats-of-arms dotted round the hall, including 38 in the tall windows, represent the family's various prestigious ancestors. The hall allows in a generous amount of natural light, but is equally inviting later with twinkling candles.

Civil Ceremony Capacity - 120 Guests
Wedding Breakfast Capacity - 100 Guests
Evening Reception Capacity - 200 Guests

Reviews

  • Sarah & James

    I’m slowly coming back down to earth after being on cloud nine for a few days!
    The day was perfect from start to finish and we are so blessed that we actually got to have our wedding day! Despite the extremely difficult circumstances everyone was facing we couldn’t of felt anymore loved. From the Horsley towers wedding team, to all our suppliers and our lovely guests who made our day one to remember.

    Aww thank you so much for your kind words, I fitted perfectly down the aisle! (All those dreams of knocking plinths and candles can finally end!) haha.
    Myself and my husband James would just like to say a huge thank you to you for being an amazing wedding co-ordinator! I don’t think I could of got through without you!

    A huge thank you to Horsley towers team, especially Sheldon because he was as cool as a cucumber and made me feel so relaxed and calm from Wednesday 18th when we did decoration drop, to the end of his shift on the 20th! Everything went so smoothly! I will be leaving Horsley a review and we’ll be getting thank you cards out in due course!

    Hi Lucie/Kate,

    Thank you for your email, we have had a fantastic start to married life and could not be happier.

    We would both like to take this opportunity to thank your entire staff for the amazing job they did to make our Wedding Day the best day of our lives.

    Kate from day one when we first visited Horsley Towers looking for a venue, you made us feel like our wedding was the most important thing in the world. Of course the venue speaks for itself, but the first impressions you gave us was a major reason for us choosing yourselves above other venues.

    Your whole team have been an absolute pleasure to work with and have made us feel like nothing was too small to make our day everything we wanted. Lucie's coordinating was extremely helpful and the support provided was greatly appreciated.

    We would also like to mention Sheldon who on the day was absolutely fantastic. He did not stop the entire day, helping us with every possible detail and making sure we were at ease the entire time when nerves were at a premium! His expertise and calmness throughout were a huge asset and he made us feel very important on the day too, which was so nice to experience.

    Rafa, Jose and the bar staff who kept the night going too...and who could forget the efforts of Steve as our toastmaster, and the associate he had shadowing him on the day. Literally everyone made it all come together and so, so special.

    As you can tell we are positively beaming about it all and we have had so many people tell us it was the best wedding they had been to and how beautiful the venue was. So once again, thank you so much for everything. We will of course send a couple of pictures once we receive them and can't wait to book a stay for our anniversary to reminisce on it all.

    The kindest of regards and the sincerest of gratitude.

  • Sheila & Pud Meadows

    First of all I would like to say a massive thank you to all the staff who were involved in organising their wedding last Friday. Everybody who attended have had nothing but praise for the day - excellent venue, quality of food , and standard of rooms etc.
    Special thanks to Gabby, who handled the day so smoothly, ushering us here and there when needed! Also please pass on our grateful thanks to Steve the wonderful toastmaster, everybody thought he was brilliant!
    Thank you to all

  • Lucy and James Castle

    Dear Isabel and Team,
    Now that the madness has subsided and James and I are finally somewhere quiet, I wanted to sit down and write a note to you all.
    The 7th September was, without a doubt, the best day of our lives. From start to finish your attention to detail was incredible. Isabel was amazing for answering all of my questions all the time, to Gaby and Luke for their day organisation, to Enrico helping me fill the Towers rooms. The Horsley Towers team, were and are phenomenal.
    I cannot tell you how lucky we both feel to have chosen you are a venue and to have been looked after so well.
    From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. We couldn’t have asked for a better day!

  • Caroline Kim & Martin Gouma

    The day was perfect in every way we couldn't have asked for anything more PERFECT venue and grounds, wedding team and manager, service, food and weather.

    All the staff (wedding team) were amazing, service was effortlessly executed, nothing too much hassle, very professional our friends and family also had high praise for the whole day, we are so pleased we chose Horsley Towers, I don't believe it could have been matched.

    The down side for me is that the day went too fast and I didn't want it to end.



  • Kelly Defoy and Andy Hale

    Oh my God, I have to say that we are still living off the incredible day that our wedding day was. We feel so privileged that Horsley Towers was the backdrop to our wedding. Every time we visited in the build up to the wedding it became more and more perfect. We now feel there is an affinity with the place that will probably last our lifetime – it really has become that special to us.

    I look back now and realise that everything we asked was catered for and planned perfectly to make our day perfect.
    Even the night before they managed to lay on the champions league final in the conference room (hopefully it proved successful for the bar takings?), and then on the morning of the wedding there was a great story that some guests thought the wedding service was at the Towers and not at the church and so one of the staff gave them a lift in their own car to the church – you can’t buy that service. Absolutely brilliant.

    On the rest of the day itself, the bar was always well staffed and the decorations and tables had all been set out as we wanted. You were so relaxed and flexible to how we intended our day to go that even setting up a tennis court on the lawn wasn’t a problem, and it added to the laid back enjoyable atmosphere that we really wanted our guests to enjoy.
    We then had Steve who found a perfect balance of blending into the background and being authoritative when he needed to usher people in for dinner or offer tours around the Towers which was a lovely touch.

    One thing you didn’t control but we feel blessed to have benefited from was the weather. It was due to be thunder storms all day, but we ended up with blue sky and sunshine which was amazing and really showed off the Towers to its full potential.


  • Martyn Hall & Sarah Kent

    The day went perfectly. We had fun, memories to look back upon and our guests were very happy and all thoroughly enjoyed the day. We had comments of "the best wedding we have ever been to" which was extremely gratifying. All of you played a massive part ensuring that we received the perfect wedding. A big thank you to you all.

    Thanks once again and we look forward to, but not too quickly... our return to celebrate our one year anniversary!

  • Kim Ketchell and Laura Funnell

    Our wedding was beyond perfect, please can you thank every member of staff that was on that day who made it so special and went above and beyond to help with everything. We can’t thank you enough!

    Again, thank you so much and we will book in with you next year.
