On 16th October 2022 we held our 5th wedding fair here at Hemswell Court. Covid had gotten in the way for the previous couple of years, so we were excited to be able to hold another event. We were blessed with a lovely autumnal day with blue skies and even sunshine.
On arrival each bride or groom who registered with us was given a complimentary goodie bag – thank you to our generous suppliers Whitakers, Temple Spa and Batemans Brewery for their kind donations and was entered into a prize draw to win a very large bottle of red wine donated by Hallgarten Wines. Our winner was very happy with her prize.
During the day, our staff were on hand to show our 5* AA rated guest accommodation and to also offer advice on booking our venue. Many thanks to all our staff who worked hard on the day.
