Gilbert White’s House is set amid thirty acres of heritage gardens and parkland.  Steeped in history, the whole retains a charm and serenity quite of its own.  Enjoy your day in the 16th century Hampshire Barn, with glorious views over tranquil meadows, or for a more intimate ceremony, the historic house – former home of famous naturalist Gilbert White following that you can indulge in a Champagne reception on the formal lawn – perfect too for enjoying chamber music. The Great Mead affords a charming location for a outdoor reception. Whether this is a marquee, tipi, bell tent etc you will be surrounded by meadow with views to the house and across parkland.

Whichever location you prefer, the heritage setting affords unique photo memories.  To complete the occasion, choose from our nominated caterers. Ranging in price and style, they each offer high quality and a personalised service, to ensure you enjoy your dream wedding.

We only accommodate one wedding per weekend in order to guarantee you exclusive use of our venue, as well  access the day preceding for the purposes of setting up and to enable you clearing away time on the following day.

We also offer a fixed price all year round and on any day, so you can have your Saturday wedding with us in the summer for the same price as a mid week wedding in November.


We still have dates available in 2017 including spring/summer

We are currently putting the finishing touches together for our 2017/18 brochure which will be available to download soon!  In the meantime please contact our wedding coordinator for any further information or to book a viewing.
