An idyllic Jacobean country house in beautiful walled gardens surrounded by picturesque countryside..... the perfect wedding venue? We like to think so.

There is a lot of choice when it comes to deciding where you want to spend one of the most important days of your life and everyone has their own individual idea of the perfect day.

Our aim at Headlam is to combine our stunning setting and facilities with an individual and exclusive approach to your wedding. Whether you are looking for a classic and traditional English wedding or perhaps a relaxed and more quirky celebration we can adapt to meet your needs. As you would expect, we only ever host one wedding a day, regardless of the size, so we can ensure that you receive our full attention.

Headlam Hall has been owned by the same family for over 40 years and during that time we have constantly invested to keep the property up to the highest standards and in step with ever increasing expectations. Our experience in hosting weddings over the years means that we can help in the planning of your event if you would like us to do so and we have a good knowledge of other service providers who can all add to the individuality of your day.
