We are thrilled to welcome Donington Hall to the Carriages’ Venue Portfolio. If you’re looking for a venue for your special day then look no further than this stunning property that can hold up to 700 guests for an evening reception. Not only do you get exclusive use of the hall for the day, you also get your very own dedicated team of Asian wedding planners which means your friends and family can relax and enjoy the day while someone else does all the running around.
The beauty of this venue comes from its exclusivity. Launched on the market only this year itself, you could potentially be one of the very first to have your wedding celebrations at The Hall. With only one wedding held per weekend, it’s a venue that will continue to remain full of charm for years to come.
Prepare to be stunned and impressed as soon as you enter The Hall. You’re welcomed straight away by a gorgeous staircase (which is perfect for taking pictures) and then lead through to the Drawing Room and Library where you can serve up some champagne and canapés to your guests. If you’re looking to also hold a civil ceremony on the day, then the beautiful Chapel works brilliantly for a more intimate affair.
If you have family and friends arriving from afar, Donington Hall’s hotel The Priest House is located within two minutes distance from the venue itself and can offer your guests discounted accommodation rates for the night of the wedding. There is also a cute Lodge at the end of the drive which is perfect to host the immediate bridal party for the night before, of and after the wedding. It sleeps up to 12 guests and comes with transport to and from the hall for the special day.
Whether you’re looking to invite 10 guests or 700 guests for your celebrations, at Donington Hall the options are endless. The marquee site can be tailored to your requirements so it’s fit for both extravagant events and intimate celebrations, which can take place within The Hall. Our team will work with you to ensure every space is utilised to its full potential.
Donington Hall is steeped in history, originally built in c.1790 for Francis Rawdon-Hastings by plasterer and draughtsman William Wilkins. In 1980 British Midland Airways purchased the hall from then owners converting it into their headquarters. In 2012 the headquarters moved over to Heathrow when British Airways bought out British Midland Airways. Current owner Stuart Garner, owner of Norton Motorcycles, purchased the Hall in 2013 and returned the property back to its original elegance and statue.
If there’s one thing that should be at the top of your list to consider when looking for a venue, it’s the service you receive from all the staff members. At Donington Hall you can be sure that the wonderful events team will look after you and your guests from the moment you book right until the end of the night. Donington Hall also comes with its very own dedicated specialist Asian wedding planners who will be able to help you find the right suppliers and be on hand during the celebrations to ensure everything runs on time so your family and friends can enjoy the celebrations.
No request will ever be too big or too small for our events team – if it is possible than it will be accommodated. This means if you require earlier access for set up for instance, this can be arranged (subject to other business activities). The venue allow the use of outside caterers, if they are not on the approved list there will also be an opportunity for your preferred caterer to be vetted. You are also free to use other quality suppliers of your choice from décor companies to cake makers.
