We pride ourselves on being experts at Asian Weddings, with years of experience with large capacity and marquee weddings, Ragley is the perfect setting for your wedding.

We have the pleasure of working with the best suppliers the industry has to offer. Our diverse range of caterers can accommodate any cuisine; North-Indian, South-Indian, Gujarati, Kashmiri, Indo Fusion, Oriental, Pan European and Sri Lankan, to name a few. They can also work with any dietary requirements for example halal, vegetarian, and dairy free. All of our trusted caterers have decades of industry knowledge and flair, whether it be creating an unforgettable four-course dining experience, exciting live cooking stations delivered with flare or a stylish street food set up, they will leave a lasting impression on your guests!

For weddings with a capacity over 220 we can offer marquees in a variety of positions within our grounds:

The Rose Garden setting can accommodate up to 500 guests and with its close proximity to the house is a firm favourite. Being set at the rear of the Hall, means the opulent state rooms of the Hall can still be used for a roaming drinks reception, smaller ceremonies and photography. For capacities above 500, let the incomparable views of the Hall be a backdrop for a marquee reception on our grand Polo Field. Alternatively, our charming Lakeside field, with surrounding woodland venues, makes for an impeccable location for a fantasy marquee wedding. In these locations there is no limit to guest numbers for your wedding.

At Ragley we only work with the best suppliers in the country to ensure your dream wedding. Fews Marquees are our dedicated marquee supplier. From idea inception to the big day, the quality of their product and service is unrivalled.

Our expert team also regularly work alongside the best décor companies, DJs and event planners in the industry and are happy to recommend suppliers to you, just simply let us know what you’re imagining, and we can help you create it.

Your dedicated Event Manager will be on site from start to finish and will be ready to welcome you for your preparations. They will meet the bridal party and welcome you to the newly renovated Bridal Lounge. Here you can have refreshments whilst your hair and makeup artists work on your bridal look at our professional makeup station.

The sweeping drive from Ragley’s front gates up to the stately home, makes for a gorgeous setting for the Baraat, and the groom can make a grand entrance on white horse, tuk tuk or even an elephant, there are no limits to your imagination!

The ceremony

We are able to offer several options for your civil and religious ceremonies. Whether you opt for a small family gathering in Lord Hertford’s Library, a grand ceremony in The Great Hall complete with a stunning mandap to compliment the baroque plasterwork, or a relaxed blessing in our Secret Garden, your Events Manager will ensure you get to the aisle unseen and with your train perfectly fanned.

There is nowhere quite like Ragley for hosting your entire wedding day, we have the space to host each event individually, breaking up the day for your guests. Our ground floor can easily accommodate your breakfast prior to ceremony, or lunch just after. We can arrange the start of your wedding reception in our sumptuous Rose Garden where you can have outdoor stations for your favourite cocktail or mocktail and our choice of caterers can provide the perfect canapes from masala crab cakes to pink and charcoal malai tikka mini sliders, whilst you and your guests take in the scene and enjoy live music on the terrace.

Create an immersive drinks reception venue, with the backdrop of our regal state rooms, where the lavish stylings, opulent framings and ornately illustrated backdrops will immediately get conversation flowing. The hand-painted mural staircase embedded with unique stories and flamboyant illustrations of everything from scarlet ibis to flying saucers, is sure to impress! Our friendly guides can highlight to your guests the small details and personal quirks of this fabulous piece of art, before leading on to relax in Lord Hertford’s favourite room, the Green Drawing Room, with original Chinese Chippendale mirrors and an Italian marble fireplace.

Next step into the dramatically sumptuous Red Saloon with our iconic Bohemian lead crystal chandelier gifted to the house by the 8th Marchioness of Hertford, The Princess de Chimay of Belgium.

The celebration

Depending on your wedding-size, your Wedding breakfast can be hosted in our Great Hall with the 12 metre high ceiling showcasing the most beautiful delicate Roman inspired plasterwork. Minerva the Goddess of War is the centrepiece above your gorgeously decorated tables. Guests will be in awe of the culinary delights provided by our caterers.

Alternatively, we can host your Wedding Breakfast in a gorgeous bespoke marquee provided by our partners Fews Marquees.

Following a quick refresh in the Bridal lounge with your bridesmaids, head straight to your wedding reception to begin the party. Our caterers will provide extravagant catering to suit your exacting requirements.

Then head to the dancefloor and dance the night away with your favourite DJ. The Rose Garden provides the perfect setting for your marquee reception and is simply breath taking when bathed in moonlight.

For those who want a moment away from the music, they can find serenity in the Hertford Room, with sofas, blankets and dim lighting. When it is time for the party to end, the Ragley Team will assist your guests with carriages, helping your family with your gifts and ensuring everyone leaves with memories to last a lifetime.
