What makes The Priory a unique wedding venue?

The Heritage Barn is an exclusive building set deep within the Hertfordshire countryside. When a wedding party signs up with The Priory, they get much more than just the venue. Weddings at The Priory come with a full team of dedicated professionals, including a wedding coordinator on hand to ensure the day runs seamlessly, and a number of hand-picked, trusted suppliers for optional assistance. The Priory's staff help the venue stand out just as much as its beautiful setting; with a delectable menu to choose from, including canapés, breakfasts, evening buffets and bespoke menus - all coming solely from the enormously talented chef!

What is a typical wedding like at The Priory?

With a dedicated team on hand to keep things running smoothly, the barn can host as many as 150 people during the day and 180 in the evening. Framed by the moat on both sides, it makes a charming and picturesque venue while maintaining the grandeur of the occasion. Photographers, videographers, and suppliers of all sorts are welcome at The Priory to help make the day unforgettable for all.
