What a great year!

  It’s been a very busy and exciting year here at Halstead House, with more weddings than ever taking place.  We love working with all the brides, grooms and families to make their wedding days special and we have received some wonderful testimonials during 2015 – thank you so much for those!  All that remains is for us to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and healthy New Year; we look forward to our first wedding of 2016 at the end of January.

A beautiful Autumn day!

It was a beautiful Autumn day yesterday for our Open Day.  Thank you to those who came along to see us, it was a busy stream of people from the moment we opened and a great opportunity for brides, grooms and families to wander around the grounds, plan for photographs and see just how our lovely venue works!  We will be holding our next Open Day on 17 April 2016 and look forward to welcoming you then.  In the meantime, if anyone is planning a Leicestershire wedding and wanting to take a look around, please just give us a call.

Photographs

There’s nothing our brides enjoy more than to see photos of how others have decorated the Opera House and the Quail Shed and used the beautiful grounds here at Halstead.  We’re always delighted to receive photographs from our couples once they have enjoyed their weddings here.  Sometimes these come direct from the photographers and sometimes from the bride and groom themselves, so a subtle hint, if you’re happy for us to share these with others, please do send us your photos – we love to see them!

And we are off!

Well the 2014 wedding season is officially underway! It all started last Saturday with a lovely day, showered in sunshine for Marie and Paul. What a start! That said it’s been all go here all winter, Halstead’s kitchen has been extended and refurbished during the winter so it’s even better for the team to prepare our home-cooked and prepared meals in! The Opera Barn’s been given a lick of paint as well so everything’s in order for another busy summer. If you’re reading this and you’ve looking to get hitched in 2014 but you’ve not chosen a venue yet then

Wonderful open day

Greetings from Halstead House It seems like weeks ago now but the Halstead House open day on Sunday the 17th of November was a great success. It was so much fun to have the rooms all set up and looking lovely. We seemed to be busy all day with people coming and going. It was great to see so many of next year’s couples coming to see the venue again and discuss decorations and there were a few new faces too. If you are looking to get married in 2014 and you’ve not chosen your venue yet there’s still time
