Here at our venue, Micklefield Hall, we have a wide variety of beautifully designed areas, all included in the venue hire. For weddings we have three romantic, licenced spaces to hold your civil ceremony, the Tithe Barn, the Temple and our Garden Room. We have additional spaces in our venue, to add variety to your event, including the marque, French terrace, Great Barn patio or the front lawns of the house.
The Great Barn
Our traditionally restored, Tithe Barn is perfect for wedding ceremonies, wedding breakfasts, celebrations, corporate events, product launches and much more. With a solid oak floor, sophisticated lighting, air conditioning, dance floor, stage and toilet facilities, this all-inclusive space is ready made for your celebration. This space can hold up to 200 guests and can be laid out in many formats to suit your needs. The barn is elegant and luxurious and open to the vaulted roof space. The oak beams date back to the 15th century. Our barn even has its own viewing platform, tucked away above the stage, giving your photographer the perfect vantage point for those important photos. With adjoining bar area, outside patio area, male, female and disabled toilets and three entrances, this space is versatile and functional. This space is approved for civil ceremonies.
Our temple area, nestled under our great oak tree and overlooking the glimmering pond, provides the most magical and romantic space to get married in. This area is licensed for civil ceremonies and equipped with a discreet audio system to ensure all your guests hear your vows. Your guests will enjoy views of your ceremony as they are seated around the banks of the pond and shaded from the sun by the 450-year-old oak tree. This area can also seat up to 200 guests. The bride will make her grand entrance, along natures very own herbaceous aisle and down the stone steps, to meet her future partner, inside the sculptured temple. This outdoor space is also approved for civil ceremonies.
Micklefield Hall has a dedicated team of groundsmen that ensure the gardens are maintained to a high standard. Our estate has a variety of private gardens for your celebration, including our herbaceous garden with fountain, secret rose garden, rolling lawns, French terrace complete with trickling fountains and open fire. All our flowers, bushes and trees have been carefully selected to ensure that no matter what time of year, our grounds are bursting with colour.
The Bridal Suite
Our bridal suite is every hairdresser and make up artist’s dream. Complete with salon style chairs, large mirror, chill out area, en suite bathroom with shower, and separate kitchen area, this suite has everything a bride needs to make those final preparations, along with her family and bridesmaids. Hidden away from all your guests, this area is totally private, ensuring your dress remains top secret until the very last minute!
The Groom’s Room
The groom’s room is tucked away above The Great Barn and offers a comfortable and stylish space for the groom to get ready. This space is also available as a separate meeting space to The Great Barn and shares the same facilities. With comfy sofas, a large solid wood conference table and traditional oak beams, this space is very versatile.
Micklefield’s fully stocked bar is adjacent to the main barn area, separated by large glass windows. The bar stocks all the favourite bottled beers and soft drinks and we have a carefully selected list of wines. There are several drinks packages available, detailed in our brochure, which you can download directly from our website. Our license allows us to serve drinks until 11.30pm.
The marquee overlooks the French Courtyard, Garden Room and The Great Barn’s patio. This space is carpeted, heated, adorned with grand drapes and chandeliers and has several electrical points. We offer this space for the use of drinks receptions, meetings and conferences and can seat up to 200 guests. It’s main function is as a contingency for wet weather.
The Garden Room
Our Garden Room is also licensed for civil ceremonies, with the happy couple, tying the knot in front of the grand fireplace. Your guests will be seated in the adjoining French Courtyard, tucked under the blossom trees and around the fountain. This space is also used as a chill out area and covered drinks area. The draw of a real, open fire is irresistible and coupled with comfy cushions and fluffy blankets, this space is particularly popular in the evenings.
On bright sunny, summer days, our large lawns are perfect for religious ceremonies that don’t require a license. With plenty of space on the manicured grass, Chuppahs and Mandups look stunning in front of the views that extend all the way to North London. The upper lawns are also licenced for civil ceremonies.
The Breakfast Room
Our Breakfast room has its own adjacent car park, seating for up to 12 people, WIFI and fully equipped kitchen. This space can be hired for small, private meetings, breakout sessions for corporate days/conferences or used as an extra space for preparations for your event.
The Meeting Room
We also have a self-contained meeting room that seats up to eight people around a grand, antique table, topped and tailed with King and Queen chairs. This space has its own toilet facilities and kitchen. This space is regularly used for meetings with the registrar, before the ceremony. This space is not available to hire for meetings.
