There are lots of little touches that you can do to make your country house wedding venue or exclusive use country house party that are quick and easy which can make the house feel more like you and your home. Such as bringing picture frames with pictures of yourself or family in and putting them around the reception rooms; or writing a welcome note to leave in the guest bedrooms outlining what’s planned for your stay. Your event planner may have lots of ideas but also check out our image boards on Pinterest (which we regularly update) where we post cute ideas and things that people have done at Huntsham Court. http://pinterest.com/huntshamcourt/

Huntsham Court comes with free banqueting furniture including our blue and gold banqueting chairs. Please note these are slightly more padded and larger than the chivari chairs listed below, and as such 9 fit around our round tables as opposed to 10 chivaris.
We have a special arrangement with a chair supplier so if you do not like our complimentary banqueting chairs you can hire these lovely lime wash banqueting chairs for your country house wedding venue with an ivory seat pad for only £3 each. With these chairs you can comfortably fit 10 chairs around our 5ft6 round tables. These chairs are kept at the house so there is also no delivery or collection charge.
